LumiCam 1300 Advanced - for extremely high requirements

Instrument Systems developed the LumiCam 1300 Advanced with the objective of further enhancing the measuring accuracy of the LumiCam 1300 Color, especially regarding color light and narrowband LED color light.

This instrument is based on an innovative concept with 6 filters. Alongside the four optical filters of the LumiCam 1300 Color (X'1, X'2, Y', Z'), two additional filters (K', L') are used. In combination with an optimized algorithm, the tristimulus values are calculated much more accurately compared with previous methods.

Measurement of the color coordinates is always critical and has been significantly improved with this patent-pending procedure. The LumiCam 1300 Advanced is therefore the ideal measuring instrument for all applications where precise determination of color coordinates is a top priority.

The LumiCam 1300 Advanced is compatible with the complete range of lenses and accessories in the LumiCam 1300 Family.

All functions of the LumiCam software are also available for the LumiCam 1300 Advanced. If required, it can also be operated like a LumiCam 1300 Mono or Color – with analog measuring times and accuracies. The relevant operating mode can be easily selected in the software.

6-filter technology

The LumiCam 1300 Advanced records the data in six channels (X'1, X'2, Y', Z', K', L') to determine the three tristimulus values (X, Y, Z). This results in a redundancy for their calculation. Using six filters effectively makes adjustment to the sensitivity curves more accurate and is implemented in practical terms by calculating the tristimulus values from multiplication of a 3x6 adaptation matrix with the six output channels. The adaptation matrix is determined individually for each LumiCam 1300 Advanced in the calibration process and optimizes the accuracy of the relevant quantities.
