Luminance And Color Meters See The Light

At LightFair 2019, Konica Minolta Sensing Americas will unveil its luminance and color meters, the CS-150 and CS-160. Both instruments are successors to the company’s CS-100 and CS-100A and are capable of measuring chromaticity, luminance, and correlated color temperature values to help ensure the stable quality of various light sources in terms of brightness and color.

The CS-150 is a tristimulus colorimeter equipped with uniquely designed sensors with spectral responses that more closely match the CIE 1931 color-matching functions representing the sensitivity of the human eye to provide measurement results that better correlate with visual evaluation. The luminance and color meter allows luminance and chromaticity to be measured remotely with an acceptance angle of 1°.

The CS-160 is a compact, lightweight, and battery powered luminance and tristimulus colorimeter for the measurement of a wide range of luminance conditions and non-contact measurement of color. The luminance and color meter allows luminance and chromaticity to be measured remotely with an acceptance angle of 1/3° for small light-emitting surfaces. It also provides a wider measurement range and a sensor that more closely matches the CIE 1931 color-matching functions.
