Know More About Triplett Light Lux Meters:
What is a digital light meter?
A digital light meter is a device that measures illumination in terms of lux. A digital lux meter features a digital calculator that displays the speed and light intensity reading. Our light intensity meter meets CIE photopic spectral response.
What are the features of Lux Meters?
The following features of lumen meters make them ideal for a variety of settings:
All our light measurement devices can measure light intensity from light sources up to 40k Foot Candles (400k Lux). Our lumen tester features a 4000 count LCD display. The LED light meter and digital light meter LUX/FC are provided with 2 AAA batteries and a pouch case. Our digital light meter/data logger is offered with a pouch case and 3 AA batteries. The light meter/data logger can store up to 16000 readings or can recall up to 99 readings. These light meters also feature a min/max/avg function that recalls the highest, lowest and average reading. The data hold feature helps freeze the reading on display for easy viewing and auto power off to conserve battery life.
What is the working principle of the digital lux meter?
The basic working principle of the digital lux meter are as follows:
The lux meters feature an integrated photodiode sensor, which is placed perpendicular to the source of light which assures optimal exposure. The lux meter features a digital LCD display, and readouts are shown on it. Triplett Digital meters can save measurements up to 400 readings. They possess a detection range that can be easily adjusted. The light sensor is composed of silicon or selenium material that uses a photovoltaic effect to determine the brightness of the material. These sensors generate current, which is proportional to photons received by the sensor. The electric current is then calculated through a digital LCD in light intensity meter. The light converted into the current is transferred in the lux value on the LCD.
How do you read a lux light meter?
The steps for measuring light using light meters or lumen meters are as follows:
Place the light meter before the object, pointing towards the light. After assembling the position, press the metering button on the light meter. Now, note down the reading being displayed on the digital LCD. The reading will be displayed in lux.
Applications of Lumen Meters
Lumen meters, also known as light meters or lux meters, have a wide range of applications. Here are some common applications of lumen meters:
- Lighting Design and Installation: Lumen meters are indispensable tools for lighting designers and installers, enabling them to accurately measure light intensity and ensure the effective design and installation of lighting systems.
- Energy Efficiency Assessments: Lumen meters measures the light output and help in assessing the effectiveness of lighting solutions and identifying opportunities for energy savings.
- Maintenance and Quality Control: Lumen meters are used for ongoing maintenance and quality control of lighting systems and ensure that lighting levels remain consistent and meet the desired standards over time. This helps in timely adjustments or replacements as needed.
- Film and Photography: Lumen meters help photographers and cinematographers achieve proper lighting conditions for capturing high-quality images and footage.
- Horticulture and Plant Growth: Lumen meters are used in horticulture and indoor gardening and ensure that plants receive the optimal amount of light for photosynthesis and healthy growth.
- Workplace Safety: Lumen meters help ensure that workspaces meet the recommended light levels to promote employee safety, productivity, and comfort.
