ICCS in IBV’s own, new photometric lab
By the end of year 2018 at the IBV Hungaria we have set up our own photometric laboratory with the installation of the Illuminance Colour Check System (ICCS).
The ICCS instrument and the measurements that this device is applicable for: ICCS allows us to perform many measurement operations within the factory, whether measurement of illumination, colour temperature or chromatic coordinates, but the luminaires’ further important data can also be determined with it such as luminous efficacy, the luminous flux and the luminaire’s radiation angle…etc.
By the end of year 2018 at the IBV Hungaria we have set up our own photometric laboratory with the installation of the ICCS (Illuminance Colour Check System).
In the room of photometric laboratory: the luminaire under test is powered by a digital lab – by a power supply – via a network analyser, thus stabilizing and measuring its power. The meter was manufactured by the Italian SEDIS company.
What is ICCS (Illuminance Colour Check System)?
ICCS (Illuminance colour check system) is the right instrument to perform a fast and efficient photometric and colorimetric characterisation of a luminaire or light source.
The ICCS device consists of:
- a support table for the lamp, moved by a stepper motor, rotating around the primary axis (or polar axis) crossing the lamp photometric centre
- a single lux meter/colorimeter acquisition probe that remains in the same position during the measurement operations.
ICCS allows performing the following operations:
- measurement of illumination
- measurements of CIE 1931 x and y chromatic coordinates and their graphical representation on the CIE 1931 diagram
- measurement of CIE 1976 u’ and v’ chromatic coordinates and their graphical representation on the CIE 1976 diagram
- measurement of colour temperature (°K)
- check of chromatic acceptable tolerance in terms of colour deviation (MacAdam ellipses).
- Further photometric polar diagrams, *.ies and *.ltd files can be generated from the measuring results
- with the help of this device, the luminaire’s radiation angle, luminous efficacy and the luminous flux can be determined as well.
