Photometry Training

Photometry Training

Photometric Testing helps you to understand the basic concepts of light, LED and solid state lighting specifications. Our regular one day training course in photometry, Colorimetry and light measurement will help you to understand LED and lighting specifications. It will help you in avoiding common misconceptions that comes in one’s mind while operating/testing these devices. We will show you how to correctly measure and express the performance of your lighting products. The training will benefit technical and marketing staff alike. 

Training Insights

Lighting is an exciting and rapidly developing area. LEDs and solid state lighting promise not only energy efficiency but also designs. Yes!! LED specifications are often mistrusted and sometimes misleading too.

Developed in partnership with measurement equipment specialists Lisun group, OUR training course helps you to understand LED and lighting specifications. It'll also help to separate the reality from fiction in LED specifications. Furthermore, it'll show you how to measure and express the output of various lighting products and ways to interpret its results. 

Our Training presents what is often thought as highly complex technical subjects in an easily understood way and combines a review of the theory of light and color measurement with practical, hands-on experience with the latest photometry equipment. Our state-of-the-art training lab contain integrating sphere, LED Power driver tester, Test Panel, Vitric, HV Tester, ECR, Gonio-photometers, Spectro-radiometer and many more.

Practical exercises included in the Photometry Training involve measuring the luminous flux color temperature and color rendering of an LED fitting. It also includes a demonstration of the inverse squared law, and measurement through integrating sphere for the creation of data file.
