Light measurement companies Labsphere and Orb Optronix have announced a far-reaching collaboration to encompass product development, manufacturing and distribution. Under the new agreement, select Orb Optronix LED test instrumentation will be manufactured at Labsphere's New Hampshire facility. The two companies will cooperate on the development of a broad range of new LED, display and light metrology products. Orb Optronix also plans to expand its thriving LED measurement services laboratory with the addition of several Labsphere systems.
In addition, the companies will now share sales channels. Orb Optronix's LED characterisation systems and software will be sold through Labsphere's worldwide sales organisation while Labsphere products will be available through Orb Optronix's United States distribution network.
Orb Optronix president Dave Jenkins commented, 'We've developed strong product design relationships with a number of high profile companies through our engineering services group and LED measurement laboratory. Now that we are ready to release hardware and software targeted at the LED test and measurement markets, we've partnered with the premier light metrology organisation and look forward to a long and fulfilling distribution and product development relationship with Labsphere.'
