Display colour, intensity and flicker measured with new instruments from Gamma Scientific

Gamma Scientific [ @gammascientific ] has just introduced two new instruments for display measurements. Both offer colour, intensity and flicker testing of all types of LED, LCD, OLED and Quantum Dot screens.

The GS-1160 is the touchscreen-equipped handheld version, while the GS-1160B is designed for the bench and operates in conjunction with PC-based analysis software. The GS-1160 can also be used as a desktop system as it is supported by the same software.

These spectroradiometers, to give them their proper name, deliver faster results with repeatability superior to filter-based instruments. Additional measurement capabilities include gamma, white balance and uniformity.

Data is output on both via USB, or can also be stored on an SD card in the GS-1160 portable model. The GS-1160B can be programmed for custom testing as it has an Application Programming Interface (API). Commands can be sent via RS-232 or the USB.

For detailed specifications and more information about these or other products Gamma Scientific manufacture, please contact us.

Gamma Scientific hones GS-1290 wavelength accuracy to ±0.2 nm

Gamma Scientific‘s RadOMA™ range of advanced, high-speed spectroradiometers deliver millisecond measurement speeds, exceptional low-light measurement capabilities, and superior blue-light region sensitivity. The latest versions of the GS-1290 are now offering wavelength accuracies down to ±0.2 nm.

Multiple configurations cover a wide spectral range, from the ultraviolet to the near infrared:

1220 Display Measurement System

  • 200 to 890 nm (GS-1290-1)
  • 200 to 1100 nm (GS-1290-2)
  • 360 to 940 nm (GS-1290-3)

RadOMA™ spectroradiometers are ideally suited for testing retroreflected colour, reflectance and transmittance, LED colour and luminance, flat panel displays, and light sources.

The systems are completely modular and interchangeable for easy upgrade or customisation, and can be self-calibrated by the user so they never have to be returned to the factory.

Aviator’s Night Vision Imaging System (ANVIS) Test Equipment? Ask Elliot Scientific

NVIS_HiRes_SQElliot Scientific is now offering the GS-1290-NVIS, an advanced high-speed spectroradiometer from Gamma Scientific, that is specifically configured for ANVIS testing of cockpit displays and lighting.

Combining the leading-edge sensitivity of a backside-thinned CCD detector with Gamma Scientific’s industry-renowned RadOMA opto-electrical platform, the GS-1290-NVIS exceeds all requirements outlined in MIL-L-85762A and MIL-STD-3009 for the characterisation of night vision compatible interface lighting in aircraft.

The GS-1290-NVIS represents the state-of-the-art in speed and accuracy in a commercially available spectroradiometer. Measurements that required a few minutes in the past with scanning grating spectroradiometer systems can now be performed in a matter of seconds.

Gamma Scientific detected at Photonex

Photonex 2014Newcomer to the Elliot Scientific stable, Gamma Scientific, drew considerable interest over the two days we exhibited at the Photonex Exhibition and Conference held recently in Coventry. Gamma Scientific President Richard Austin was on hand to demonstrate the systems and explain the differences between radiance and irradiance, and luminance and illuminance among other things.

Elliot Scientific is now distributing Gamma Scientific’s comprehensive range of light and optical test and measurement systems, that are trusted by some of the world’s leading companies and standards organisations, for accurately determining the consistency, power, and colour of light. Gamma Scientific designs and manufactures lab grade light measurement instruments and systems that include:

•  Spectroradiometers
•  Spectrometers
•  Spectrophotometers
•  Goniophotometers
•  Reflectometers
•  Thin Film Measurement Systems
•  Calibration Light Sources – Filament & LED
•  Integrating Spheres up to 3 metres in diameter

ColourimeterIn addition, Elliot Scientific is also offering Optometer equipment from UDT Instruments, a division within Gamma Scientific. This portfolio includes Photometers, Radiometers, Lux meters, Luminance meters, Colourimeters, Photodetectors, and Illuminance meters for photometric and radiometric testing applications.

Night Vision RadiometerGamma Scientific instruments are used in a variety of applications that cover the testing of LEDs, lamps, light fittings and luminaires, lasers and fibre-optics, night vision equipment and visual displays and, uniquely, the single sided inspection of the first surface of any transmissive element.
