Konica Minolta Sensing has introduced its lightweight and portable Chroma Meter CL-200A device for measuring the colour temperature of white LEDs and other Light sources. The Chroma Meter CL-200A, which succeeds the current CL-200, has improved operability for white LED measurement. In addition to measuring the colour temperature, chromaticity and illuminance of light sources, the CL-200A also shows the dominant wavelength and excitation purity directly in the display. The CL-200A is suitable for quality control applications for new lighting devices such as LED modules. The standard accessory software, which runs on a PC, allows users of the CA-200A to rank each measured LED automatically by plotting the data on the chromaticity chart.
The CL-200A is also useful for lighting designers, architects, and engineers in the field. When producing illumination for a stage or space, colour temperature, chromaticity and illuminance which are suitable for the space need to be specified and correctly communicated with the workers setting up the event, especially when amenity, safety and efficiency are important to the original designer of the space. The CL-200A is the ideal tool to ensure the stage lighting is exactly as the designer envisaged.
