Instruments for Display Measurement
The StellarNet spectrometers are great tools for low cost, routine analysis of all types of displays and monitors. The increasing use and popularity of flat panel displays for televisions, computer monitors, laptops, automotive displays, cell phones, and mobile devices of all kinds requires accurate, fast, and cost-effective methods for measuring color, luminance, and various other output parameters. In R&D applications there is a continuing need for low cost and easy-to-use measurement systems that can be applied to all sorts of display sizes, brightness, and technologies — LCD, plasma, OLED and LED.
In manufacturing, accurate, repeatable, quantitative measurement methods are needed to replace traditional human inspection techniques. Also, StellarNet’s line of low cost spectrometers are small, portable, and robust which allows for a more economical solution to the larger benchtop display measurement alternatives. Likewise, multiple spectrometers can be deployed in production facilities, taken into the field, and transported easily from one location to another increasing the ease of inspection and quality control.
- Low cost – Ruggedized – high performance
- High dynamic range and system flexibility
- Many light collecting accessories and calibration options
- Shock-proof – Permanent alignment
- Easy to use SpectraWiz Software included free
- USB-2 interface to all Windows PCs
The factory performs calibrations for the appropriate wavelength range of your spectrometer using NIST traceable calibration lamps (calibration service IRRAD-CAL must be ordered with spectrometer and proper measurement accessories)
Fast delivery: most system can be calibrated and shipped within 1 week after receipt of order.
Absolute calibration: accuracy within 10% at detector integration setting used for calibration.
Certificate available: documentation with NIST traceable serial numbers.
If the user has an appropriate irradiance calibration source lamp, a field re-calibration can be easily performed using the included SpectraWiz software.
