The lamp position influences the luminous flux
LED lamps are often manufactured with integral driver circuitry. This means that the lamp orientation (base up, base down, etc) can have a significant effect on the junction temperature of the LEDs due to the different heat flow scenarios. Luminous flux, spectrum and color are directly related to junction temperature. The lifetime of LEDs is also reduced as junction temperature is increased. The measurement of photometric properties of LED lamps operating in the different orientations is therefore highly recommended. The ISD-100HFT-BTS2048-VL light meter from Gigahertz-Optik is a high-quality, CCD-based spectroradiometer with a rotatable, 100cm diameter, integrating sphere. This combination can be used to measure the luminous flux, spectrum, color, and color rendering index of LED lamps operating in any orientation.
The BTS256-VL light meter
The high-quality BTS2048-VL CCD based spectroradiometer is internationally recognized as a high-end product. It is one of the most compact spectroradiometers on the market which enables direct system integration in many applications without the need for expensive, and potentially measurement degrading, light guides. Among its characteristic features is its diffusor window with cosine corrected field of view for the measurement of spectral irradiance and spectral illuminance. This also permits direct mounting onto integrating spheres (e.g. the ISD-100HFT) for measurement of luminous flux. More detailed information about the BTS2048-VL can be found in the respective data sheets. The unit is also available in the BTS2048-VL-TEC thermoelectric cooled version.
Enhancement of the BTS2048-VL with the ISD-100HFT-V03 and ISD-100-V04 integrating spheres
One unique feature of the ISD-100HFT-V03 is that it can be rotated around its frame. This allows for operation of LED lamps in upright (lamp base down), lying (lamp base horizontal) and hanging (lamp base up) positions. The sphere has a diameter of 100 cm and one of its hemispheres can be opened to allow easy access to the sample holder. The height of the sample holder can be adjusted for perfect positioning of the LED lamp at the center of the sphere. In order to operate 2Pi lamps outside the integrating sphere, the ISD-100HFT-V04 version has an extra measurement port with a 254 mm (10 inch) diameter. This remains closed when not in use. Both variants are equipped with an auxiliary lamp.
One essential quality feature of photometric devices is their precise and traceable calibration. The ISD-100-HFT-BTS2048-VL is calibrated at Gigahertz-Optik’s DAkkS-accredited (D-K-15047-01-00) calibration laboratory for the spectral responsivity and spectral irradiance according to ISO/IEC 17025. Calibration for the luminous flux is performed using a BN-LHSF-104 calibration lamp placed at the center of the sphere. Spheres with an additional measurement port require additional calibration using a BN-LHSF-2P-20 calibration lamp that has 2pi radiation characteristics. Every device version comes with its respective calibration certificate.
