Measurement solutions for ecodesign regulations and HCL applications on show


Gigahertz-Optik will be presenting some of its innovative light measurement solutions at this year’s Light + Building including the MSC15 and BTS256-EF spectral light and flicker meters as well as the versatile CSS-45 spectral sensor configured for Human Centric Lighting performance verification..

The European ecodesign Regulation (EU) 2019/2020 imposes strict requirements for flicker and stroboscopic effect. The metrics specified are PstLM short-term flicker severity and SVM stroboscopic visibility measure. Both these metrics are conveniently measured by the BTS256-EF meter and its software. With the addition of the LPS-CH-500 signal generator and software, the BTS256-EF performs the EMC electromagnetic immunity tests required by IEC TR 61547-1:2017.

The melanopic stimulus metric together with the spectral composition of lighting are fundamental to understanding in the field of Human Centric Lighting. These measures are provided by all of the spectral light meters from Gigahertz-Optik including the popular MSC15. Additionally, the BTS256-EF reports all the metrics to characterize the non-visual stimulus of light as defined by CIE publication S026:2018. A system incorporating two CSS-45 spectral sensors provides direct assessment against emerging standards such as the “WELL Building Standard” with regard to non-visual requirements of lighting.
