COMPANY PROFILE: Instrument Systems GmbH
Instrument Systems provides complete light measurement solutions for the entire LED industry, ranging from high-speed production testers for wafer, dies and packaged LEDs up to high-performance spectroradiometers for the lab.
The turnkey systems determine all relevant optical parameters of single LEDs, clusters and modules. Even temperature controlled measurements of High-Power LEDs are possible.
Instrument Systems is the technology and market leader for LED measuring systems based on spectroradiometry. Founded in 1986 in Munich, Germany, Instrument Systems develops and manufactures a range of products to determine all relevant optical parameters of LEDs like luminous intensity, luminous flux as well as spectral and colorimetric quantities of single LEDs, clusters and modules.
Besides LED metrology, Instrument Systems supplies technically refined measurement equipment for display testing and applications in radiometry and photometry. The product range of the company includes high-performance array and scanning spectrometers as well as imaging photometers and colorimeters. A wide selection of fiber based measurement adapters are used to create complete turnkey systems that range from high-speed testers for use on the production floor up to high-performance solutions for the lab. Accessories include integrating spheres, goniometers, LED test sockets and optical probes. All systems are conform to the guidelines of the International Commission on Illumination (CIE) and generate very accurate and reliably reproducible results.
Instrument Systems has developed SpecWin Pro software to control the products and provide analysis of the spectral data. DLLs and optional LabVIEW drivers allow the complete test equipment from Instrument Systems to be seamlessly integrated into existing, customer specific measurement set-ups. World headquarters is located in Munich, Germany. A global customer base support is provided by a worldwide network of representatives.
CAS 140 CT – the benchmark for array spectrometers
Centerpiece of the CAS 140CT is the monochromator concept, based on a Crossed-Czerny-Turner spectrograph with high-end, back-illuminated CCD detector. The spectrometer design thus effectively reduces stray light, resulting in significantly improved dynamic range and measurement accuracy. Various models are available to cover a spectral range from 200 to 2150 nm.
