Redesign of BTS256-EF Light, PAR and Flicker Meter

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. Read more »

New GL SPECTIS 1.0 Touch FLICKER Spectrometer Captures Flicker Measurements

New GL SPECTIS 1.0 Touch FLICKER Spectrometer Captures Flicker Measurements With new LED lighting applications, the problem of flicker in slow-motion video has resurfaced. There was a time when this was a very common phenomenon with fluorescent lighting, but as technical improvements were made to the ballasts, the problem was largely eliminated. Today the main source of such flicker is LED lighting with particular drivers supplying power to the lights. At sports facilities, having optimal illumination and minimal flicker in the lights are important factors to consider when installing LED lighting. The lighting at FC Chelsea's famous Stamford Bridge stadium (Fulham, London, England) was recently replaced with LED lighting that creates unique illumination effects and dazzeling light displays.
