New Benchtop Multi-Point Analyser Offers Faster, Easier Inspection of LEDs

Micro-Epsilon's new benchtop multi-point measurement systems are intended to enable faster, easier inspection of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) Precision sensor manufacturer Micro-Epsilon has launched a series of benchtop multi-point measurement systems that enable faster, easier inspection of light-emitting diodes (LEDs). The colorCONTROL MFA series starts with a basic version that offers five measuring channels. The colorCONTROL MFA-5 is extremely compact and can verify the colour, intensity and colour temperature (in Kelvin) of up to five LEDs simultaneously. The measuring system is modular and so can be extended by adding extra MFA-E modules in batches of five channels, up to a maximum of 20 modules (i.e. 100 channels). Read more »
