Labsphere 2M Integrating Sphere System at Aurora Light Lab
Pro-Lite supplies light measurement system for state-of-the-art facility
North Sutton, New Hampshire (September 29, 2011) – Labsphere, through its exclusive UK distributor Pro-Lite Technology, has supplied a custom two-meter integrating sphere system to lighting manufacturer Aurora Lighting for use in its new light lab.
Aurora focuses on energy efficient LED lighting solutions. Pro-Lite and Labsphere provided a two meter integrating sphere equipped with a Labsphere spectroradiometer to provide precise LED measurement data. This system was custom designed to fit Aurora’s specifications. More accurate than a traditional photometer, it reports lumen output, color temperature, color rendering index, chromaticity, and binning accuracy. The precision of the data provided allows complex lighting projects to be designed and tested with confidence in the final results.
Aurora has installed the Labsphere testing system in its state-of-the-art Light Lab A.L.E.X. 2.0 in Apex Park, Welwyn Garden City, England. This facility features an environment in which visitors can experience the differences between halogen, CFL, and LED light sources, including the color temperature of the different sources.
