LabSpion UV-VIS® is a specialized light measurement solution for testing UV light sources as well as ordinary luminaires in the same system – a gonioradiometer or a gonio-spectroradiometer.
It covers all light source sizes from small lamps and LED chips to large panels and street lighting. The 2-axis LabSpion UV goniometer allows the system to measure the entire 3D distribution field for any light source. Using a spectrometer sensor and a built-in power analyzer, the unique Viso technology enables fast measurements and ensures that all data is measured quickly. The system gives you all photometric data as well as data that integration spheres provide in one measurement. Comprehensive LDT and IES simulation files are standard outputs.
By using a goniospectrometer for UV measurements the problem of integrating sphere interior deterioration is avoided.
The LabSpion UV-VIS goniometer is the ideal way of measuring a wide variety of light sources ranging from all UV lamps and luminaires to standard fixtures, automotive lights and LED panels. The light source is easily attached to the goniometer and rotation is both quick and silent. The LabSpion UV-VIS handles light sources up to 25 kg and 1.5 m in diameter. The heavy-duty 2.0 m-tower version even handles light sources up to 45 kg and 2.0 m in diameter.
The LabSpion UV-VIS system is quickly installed and comissioned. The measuring process is fully automatic with the option of manual operation. Data acquisition from a single C-plane takes 15-30 seconds, which means that takes roughly 15 minutes to collect data from all planes.
Measurement data is then automatically saved in a specific folder in the form of fixture files. They are usually exported into PDF, PNG, IES, LDT and CSV formats – and even UV IES files. You can create your own custom pdf report templates. Read more about the Light Inspector software here.
THE IMPORTANT STRAYLIGHT CORRECTION
All Viso’s UV sensors have straylight correction. As UV spectrometers need high sensitivity to handle low level signals, any small stray light reflections from within the spectrometer must be corrected for optimal performance. At Viso is this done performing a series of calibration test at multiple wavelength detecting all straylight and storing it in the calibration data. All straylight is then in real-time removed from the spectrum using mathematical matrix calculations based on the straylight test data.
COMPARING WITH MIRROR BASED SYSTEMS
Mirror-based gonioradiometer or a gonio-spectroradiometer are available in the market. However there are some important advantages of the Viso solution:
Measures UV light as well as visual light
Measures light sources up to 25 kg and up to 150 / 200 cm (5 / 6.5 ft)
Fits into relatively small laboratories
All color and lumen data – no integrating sphere needed
An advanced system which is very easy to operate
Output as customizable reports or raw data
