There seems to be a never-ending list of ways light meters are used in a wide range of industries. These powerful luminance meters give technicians an accurate appraisal of the characteristics of any number of light sources and are used for quality control and other important purposes.

Luminance meters were engineered with many features that make it one of the best light meters available anywhere. It is in the higher range of DIN quality class B and is a light and compact unit that’s easy to handle and use. It runs on a 9-volt battery.

This portable meter uses a single lens reflex optical system. With it, users can achieve targeting at an amazingly precise level, with the assurance that, even at short ranges, the exact measuring area will show up clearly in the viewfinder. Users can get accurate light measurement data from small areas measuring just 0.4mm in diameter and, of course, from much larger areas.
