Edison Opto’s Products Reveal Perfect Color Saturation

Edison Opto’s Products Reveal Perfect Color Saturation When it comes to LED lighting products, high efficiency, excellent luminous flux, and great color presence become the prime concerns. Especially for color rendering, most people would only know CRI, which can reveal colors of the given objects with the natural light source. To meet people’s desire of better color metric, another color metric was developed in 2015. The new metric is TM-30 which was proposed by IES. Due to awareness of this trend, Edison Opto also produces new COB series, which can meet the high standard of TM-30. Read more »

Stray Light Correction Improves UV-LED Characterization

Stray Light Correction Improves UV-LED Characterization Instrument Systems is the first industrial supplier for stray light corrected calibrations of array spectrometers to serve the broad market. By including a stray light correction matrix in the calibration process, it is possible to suppress the stray light during the measurement by an order of magnitude down to 10 E-5. A 10% higher sensitivity in the UV range after stray light corrected calibration leads to about 3-4% higher accuracy in the radiometric measurement. The more accurate determination of the radiometric values of UV LEDs facilitates their characterization and development, and supports the various applications of these radiation sources, for example, in the field of coating, curing, disinfection or biomedicine.
