A compact spectrometer that offers laboratory-grade accuracy and resolution.

Analytik partner with German company, GL Optic, for the supply of handheld and laboratory-based spectroradiometers and integrating spheres for use in both quality control and research applications for the growing lighting marketplace.

Analytik has announced the release of the new SPECTIS 5.0 touch spectrometer for quick and accurate testing of conventional, LED and other solid-state lighting equipment in the field and in production.

The new GL SPECTIS 5.0 from GL Optic is a compact portable spectrometer running an Android operating system for laboratory-grade characterization of light sources. Suitable for measuring the spectral power distribution of luminaires, flat panel displays, diffusely reflecting surfaces and individual LEDs, as well as for photo biological safety testing and characterization of solid-state lighting products, the new instrument can be deployed in the field with no loss of accuracy or resolution.

The GL Spectis 5.0 touch measures just 111mm x 210mm x 58mm and weighs only 1.5kg. It is equipped with a full-colour 3.2" 240 x 320 touch-screen display. The user can configure test set-ups and see measurement results even without a PC connection. For PC-controlled operations using the optional GL SPECTROSOFT software, the instrument can connect wirelessly via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or with a standard USB cable interface.

While the new instrument has a convenient small size, GL Optic has packed a laboratory instrument's capability inside the unit. It boasts a physical resolution of 0.5nm and FWHM optical resolution of 2.5nm over a broad spectral range of 200-1050nm. Over this entire range, the instrument's spectral radiometric accuracy is rated to within ±4%. Colour measurements are also highly accurate: in the visible portion of the light spectrum, the uncertainty of colour co-ordinate (x, y) measurements is just 0.0015.

Measurements that may be viewed on the touch-screen display include full spectral power distribution profiles, CIE chromaticity charts, colour co-ordinates, CCT and CRI values (Ra and R1-R14) and the peak wavelength value. To provide accurate measurements in the field, the GL Spectis 5.0 touch implements GL Optic's proprietary Optical Stray Light Reduction (OSR) technology giving excellent signal-to-noise performance and more accurate results.

Automatic baseline correction with the integrated temperature sensor ensures high measurement stability and performance over the operating temperature range of 5-35°C. This makes the spectrometer ideal for measurements to evaluate viewing conditions in accordance with ISO 3664, testing compliance with the eco-design requirements of EU standard 1194/2012, luminaire evaluation under LM-79 testing and photobiological safety testing of UV-emitting light sources.

The instrument is also compatible with a wide range of optical accessories, including integrating spheres and optical probes. It detects which optical probe is attached and automatically applies the correct calibration file in the software, so switching probes/interfaces is quick and flexible.

Mikolaj Przybyla, brand director of GL Optic, said: 'A number of advanced technologies have been combined in the GL Spectis 5.0 to produce a unique portable instrument that stands comparison, in terms of performance, with most bench-top spectrometers found in labs today. At last users can enjoy the convenience of using a compact instrument without having to compromise on measurement quality.'
