DMS 505 6-axis goniometer for display measurement

Loading Loading

Standard system for display measurement with 3 motorized and 3 manual axes

The DMS 505 is based on a 6-axis goniometer, of which three axes are motorized. It permits viewing angle-dependent analysis of all electro-optical characteristics of displays, including luminance, contrast and color properties at different viewing angles and variable electrical control.

With its extensive lighting accessories and temperature-controlled chambers, the DMS 505 is ideal for determining the characteristics of displays for mobile applications (smartphone, tablet PC).
