Instrument Systems LGS 350: Fast Energy Efficiency Tests

Instrument Systems LGS 350: Fast Energy Efficiency Tests With a view to future energy-efficient lighting solutions in buildings, Instrument Systems has optimized its LGS 350 goniophotometer system for highly accurate and fast testing of medium-sized LED modules according to the EU Eco-Design Directive. The LGS 350 system features an 85 % increased travel speed of the γ-axis to 34 °/s. The permissible top speed of 0.25 m/s pursuant to CIE S 025 is thus possible for a large number of LED sample sizes. Compared to present measurement solutions, for the user this means greatly increased throughput while maintaining a high standard of measurement precision. With an add-on module of the established SpecWin Pro software, a broad range of ErP tests is available for the preparation of test reports according to the EU Directive. Read more »
