Mazet, a provider of electronic design and manufacturing services, has introduced the new MTCS-C3 product family which enables users to implement their own True Color Colorimeter into lighting, backlight, LED tests, colour selection or other applications.
The MTCS-C3 is ideal for measuring colour coordinates (XYZ), CCT or brightness levels, and the sensor system is based on the Jencolor standard components MTCSiCF (True Color sensor) and MCDC04 (signal converter). The sensor is based on the CIE1931 XYZ colour standard, while the signal converter allows an output at 16/20 bit at a dynamic range of 1-to-1,000,000. The evaluation kit is prepared for specific customer calibrations.
According to the company, the Jencolor True Color sensors and signal ICs are an ideal solution for the stabilisation of LED light in regards of aging, binning and temperature shifts. Additionally, it can be used in industrial colour measurement tasks, medical applications and for metrology solutions.
Displays can be measured at very low brightness levels and at a high accuracy – even dimmable high brightness power LEDs at high temperatures (>100°C) and brightness levels can be measured close to the target.
The colorimeter has a micro USB interface and can be directly controlled via Windows software, which includes ADC parameters such as gain, integration time, offset correction, and divider options. The values can be individually calibrated to the application and have several output options (colour spaces, export functions, etc.) The MTCS-C3 is an ideal solution for LED tests in manufacturing or incoming goods inspection and is a cost-efficient solution that can be utilised at multiple measurement points. A simple user calibration can be performed to the existing LED selection and as soon as colour or brightness deviations occur, actions can be taken.
The MTCS-C3 is available in four versions: as an OEM-Board, with and without a metal casing; or as a development kit including software, with or without a metal casing. Only one software license is required for multiple sensors.
