Complete regulation database and comprehensive graphic visualization in the form of isocandela diagrams

LightCon laboratory software evaluates measurements with the systems of the Optronik line on external automotive lighting, variable message signs, retroreflectors and airfield lighting. It offers simple user guidance, high flexibility and fast orientation due to a clearly structured setup.

Use of LightCon guarantees the highly efficient implementation of complex measurement tasks in product development, quality control or type testing / homologation. Complete goniophotometric measurement sequences are performed automatically; test reports, regulations, objects and projects are created and managed in a regulation database.

The user-friendly environment offers integration capabilities for a wide range of Instrument Systems hardware, e.g.

  • AMS goniometer (AMS 200, 3000 and 5000)
  • DSP photometer (DSP 10, DSP 200)
  • RMS 1200 retroreflectometer
  • CM 10 tristimulus colorimeter
  • LM 20 luminance meter for measurement of license plate illumination
  • CAS 140D array spectroradiometer (partial integration)
  • Positioning systems
  • Power sources

The software can be operated under Windows 10 (64bit).    

Comprehensive measurement analyses in the light lab

LightCon is an easy-to-operate, efficient tool for:

  • Conformity assessment of automotive lamps pursuant to the legal requirements of UN-ECE, SAE, FMVSS108
  • Development-related measurement of automotive lighting
  • Approval testing of airfield lighting (flash light sources and constant light in accordance with ICAO and FAA)
  • Measurement of variable message signs and other samples from the traffic / transportation sector
