05.09.17: ISAL 2017: Come and see our innovations for interior and exterior automotive lighting!

Come and see Instrument Systems from 25 – 27 September at the ISAL 2017, the biggest international symposium on automotive lighting in Darmstadt. Center of attention is the live presentation of the new Optronik Line DSP 200 photometer with a broad area of applications in automotive exterior and traffic lighting. Additionally, the new LumiCam 2400 imaging colorimeter will be presented, which has been especially optimized for automotive needs in display measurement.

Optronik Line DSP 200 Photometer
The DSP 200 photometer is the new core product of the Instrument System Optronik Line portfolio. Like its predecessor DSP 10 it is the perfect instrument for extremely fast "on-the-fly"scanning in combination with the goniophotometers of the AMS line.

Due to a completely new designed sensor with detector cooling, the DSP 200 offers outstanding sensitivity and stability for precise measurements even at very low illumination levels.  The instrument meets, of course, all requirements of the newest standards, like EN 13032-1 and DIN 5032-7 (2017). A low-noise photo diode with V(lambda)-filtering and optimized electronics provides for a broad dynamic range from 0.1 mlx to 200 klx. At the same time the very high local resolution allows an accurate determination even of high gradients when measuring headlamps. Therefore, the DSP 200 is suitable for all automotive and traffic applications, as well as for flashlights and for measurements of all pulse width modulated light sources. It communicates via CAN-Bus and is compatible both with the predecessor DSP 10 and with all goniophotometers of the AMS and LGS lines.

The user-friendly touch screen display shows the measured values together with the calibration menu and comes with a calibration management which is very easy to maintain.
   
AMS goniophotometers for headlamps and displays
The Optronik Line specialists from Berlin will show two AMS goniophotometers in action, each in combination with the new DSP 200 photometer. Due to its large size, its dynamic power unit, its robust construction and wide traversing range the goniometer AMS 5000 is ideally suited for the fast and efficient measurement of large, heavy headlamps and traffic lights. The AMS 200 goniometer has been designed for the characterization of small to medium-sized signal lamps, headlamps and light modules. With its small footprint and integrated rack this system offers a versatile and efficient alternative for laboratories with restricted space.

LumiCam 2400 imaging colorimeter for automotive displays
The functionality of the new LumiCam 2400 imaging colorimeter and the versatility of the corresponding LumiCam software will be shown in a dashboard measurement test setup. The camera has a resolution of 5 megapixel which matches perfectly the needs of versatile automotive measurement applications, i.e. luminance and color distributions of displays and electronic panel graphics or homogeneity of automotive interior displays.

In addition, Instrument Systems will present a setup for LED high power measurement with the new CAS 140D spectroradiometer. The 4th generation of the worldwide very successful CAS 140 series stands for highest accuracy, reliability, repeatability and stability in lab and production. For automotive needs the instruments of the CAS 140 series are key products in proven turnkey solutions by Instrument Systems, i.e. for display quality control.
