Labsphere's illumia plus light measurement systems can be customized with various integrating spheres and spectrometers

Sept. 16, 2013
Date Announced: 16 Sep 2013 These newly designed systems build upon Labsphere’s industry-leading illumia® technology with enhanced design for system modularity and innovative software capabilities.Lighting manufacturers can choose the functionality needed now, and take advantage of the flexibility to add on modules as business requirements and global standards change.Systems ship with Labsphere’s mobile Integral™ LM light measurement software, allowing users to access their systems from anywhere and in any language with robust data acquisition and reporting capabilities.Also available is the API (application programming interface) capability so users can use the illumia®plus with existing software programs such as LabVIEW.Each base system includes a choice of integrating spheres in sizes up to 3m and a wide range of spectrometers to meet specific applications.The newly redesigned spheres allow for tool-less switching between base-up and base-down measurement geometries and hot-swapping of stabilized lamps.Coupled with the software’s automated calibration and IESNA LM-79 stabilization routines, customers can significantly decrease the length of time for each measurement and increase throughput. Labsphere’s global product manager for light measurement, Vikrant Mahajan, commented that “The illumia®plus systems are designed to meet the requests we hear for modular solutions that grow with changing business needs.From R&D to the production line, the industry asks for light measurement solutions that are fast, accurate, repeatable, and flexible.The solutions also need to provide strong data management capabilities and global access.illumia®plus meets these needs and gives users confidence that the systems they use will maximize efficiency, shorten product development time, and help differentiate their lighting products within the market.”Labsphere, Inc. is headquartered in North Sutton, New Hampshire, with a satellite facility in China and a global network of distribution partners.Founded in 1979, it is part of the Halma group of companies. Labsphere specializes in the design and manufacture of high-end light measurement solutions for the LED/SSL lighting industry, uniform sources and products for remote sensing and imager/consumer camera calibration, diffuse optical coatings and materials including Spectralon® and Spectraflect®, and instrumentation and reflectance standards for spectroscopy applications.For more information, please visit
