Redesign of BTS256-EF Light, PAR and Flicker Meter

The lighting industry requires high accuracy spectral light meters that can handle complex measurements. These include measurement of pulse width modulated light sources and the ability to measure both indoors and outdoors lighting, determination of thermal transient behavior of lamps, their flicker properties and so on. The primary criterion that such meters must always meet is the quality of their photometric features.

With the BTS256-EF, Gigahertz-Optik GmbH, a renowned measuring device manufacturer, offers a universal measuring device for the determination of all relevant light parameters in general lighting. The new device has been updated which includes a redesign of some of its features. Changes include the enhancement of the wavelength range from 360 nm to 830 nm and the implementation of all functions of the BTS256-E, BTS256-EF and BTS256-PAR meter.

Due to its redesign, the BTS256-EF is able to fulfill an even broader range of requirements. Its measurement features include photometric and colorimetric parameters, Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR) of plant grow lights, Human Centric Lighting (1), Stroboscopic Visibility Measure SVM (2), Short-Term Flicker Pst (2), and ASSIST Flicker Perception Metric Mp.

The BTS256-EF is also available with an optional Wi-Fi function.
