GONIOPHOTOMETERS IN HORTICULTURAL LIGHTING
Horticultural lighting is the standard term used when lights are used for growing plants. Instead of lumen, data is displayed in PPF value, which consists of number of photons radiated by a light source in the photosynthetically active wavelength interval 400-700 nm. As all Viso measurement solutions use fast spectrometer sensors, the PPF can be calculated for any of your measurements.
You might think this kind of data is not necessary for general lighting applications, but if you work on illuminating open spaces like hotel lobbies, which include plants in the architecture, you might be required to specify PPF values.
Viso technology even allows you to generate 3D files in PPFD (photon flux density) as IES and LDT files. This way, you can use existing lighting CAD software, such as Dialux and AG132, to create your horticultural planning.
WHY GETTING your own lab
YOUR PROFESSIONAL IMAGE
Thorough testing and characterization of your products builds trust. With a lot of detail in your data sheets and presentations, customers will believe in your solutions and your competencies. This true both for your own products and third-party solutions. Viso software makes issuing measurement reports easier than ever. Reports can be fully customized to fit your own corporate identity.

VISO SYSTEMS FOR YOUR LAB

Light distribution curve
With high measurement detail (up to 72 C-planes and up to 0.1-degree gamma resolution) there is data in abundance to plot. 3D plot are included as well
As light is detected with a Viso fast spectrometer sensor, spectral data is recorded in every measurement. A Viso goniometer will even provide ‘color over angle’ data (not possible with an integrating sphere)
Choose your preferred units
Switch between photometric and horticultural units on any measurement. Adjust your spectral output region to PAR or any other interval
All Viso goniometers have a built-in power analyzer. The analyzer will help you to determine when light sources are stabilized. Important power data (wattage, efficacy, power factor etc.) are standard
Fundamental radiation data
Lighting design and data export
Power and warm-up data
Add great tools to your system, capture more data and ease your work
