GonioSPECTROMETERS FOR automotive and transportation lighting

Specific photometric tests and measurements are required by automotive and transportation lighting standards including Rail, Aviation and Marine lighting. Viso Systems offers instruments and special dedicated software for a full characterization of light intensity distribution, flicker and colorimetry.

No matter which fundamental goniometer movement setup that is used (Type A, type B, type C), the test result consists of discrete measurement points in specific light directions. Viso BaseSpion and LabSpion can be programmed to measure in any global direction just like a robot and fulfil e.g. type B requirements.

This special “table measurement” feature allows you to set up your own measurement protocols and reports.

Why getting your own lab

  • Having your own lab pays off. Our clients generally claim that pay-back time is 6-12 months depending on external laboratory costs
  • Your internal R&D will perform much faster and gain competencies. Better optical solutions and faster time-to-market
  • Build trust in your products and brand and strengthen your client relations by having lots of data ready

Basic outputs for automotive and signal lighting

Table measurement

Set up your own measurement tables
With the special table measurement feature you can easily set up as many custom templates as you wish. Reuse for measurements and reports incl. compliance evaluation fields.

RGB spectrum entertainment lighting

Measure everything in one go
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) 

Custom pdf report

Make special PDF report designs
Design your own fully customized PDF report design using MS Word as the editor.
Extract all fundamental data in Excel and CSV formats.

Power curve from light measurement

Power characteristics 
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
