Konica Minolta Sensing’s CS-160 Luminance and Color Meter

Konica Minolta, Inc. announces the launch of Chroma Meter CS-160, successor to the CS-100 (launched in 1986) and CS-100A (launched in 2000). The CS-160 is a lightweight, compact and battery powered luminance and tristimulus colorimeter capable of measuring chromaticity, luminance, and correlated color temperature values to help ensure the stable quality of various light sources regarding brightness and color.

Product Features:
•    1/3° measurement angle
•    Luminance measurement range of 0.1 to 9,999,000 cd/m²
•    Portable, lightweight, compact and battery powered(2xAA)
•    SLR (Single Lens Reflex), precise targeting; shows exact area to measure
•    Converts the color of the indicated area to numerical values
•    Quick measurements of the viewed object color without the influence of outside areas
•    Easy-to-read backlit display for viewing in dark areas
•    Includes Utility Software allows the instrument to be controlled from the PC via USB 2.0
•    Various optional accessories such as illuminance adapter and close up lenses

This model is equipped with new sensors that more closely match the CIE 1931 color-matching functions which correspond to the sensitivity of the human eye, and thus can provide measurement results that closely correlate with visual evaluation results.

The brightness and color of light greatly affect our impressions of the displays of smartphones or tablet computers, movie theater screens, etc., and the CS-160 allows users to better control light quality.

The CS-160, which has a smaller measuring angle of 1/3°, enables measurements of the luminance and chromaticity of small light-emitting surfaces, such as microdisplays or of small, sharply defined areas of distant light sources such as traffic or street lights. Its increased measurement range up to 9,999,000 cd/m2 yields more accurate results.
