CSS-45 with CSS-D
Compact and cost effective spectral light detector for conventional and LED lighting. Features: simple intuitive operation, photopic and scotopic illuminance measurement, color properties, CCT, CRI, PAR, Bilirubin. Plug & Play connection via USB including software.
As well as spectroradiometers with integrated displays, Gigahertz-Optik manufactures spectroradiometer sensors that are separated from the operator’s handheld controller. These are more suitable for applications that require the sensor to be incorporated within some measurement system or equipment. In some situations the influence of the operator on the measured value can be reduced by the greater distance to the sensor.
Sensor with fully integrated spectroradiometer function
Compact control unit
Since measurement data is processed directly in the CSS-45 sensor, the CSS-D unit is used exclusively for controlling the sensor and displaying the measured values. For this purpose, it is connected to the sensor by means of a 2 m long flexible cable. The CSS-D is equipped with a high capacity rechargeable lithium battery which also powers the sensor. The battery can be charged with common USB chargers. The color touch-screen offers a good contrast display.
Alternatively, the CSS-D can be attached to a PC by a USB cable. This enables remote-control of the device.
Universal hand-held spectroradiometer
The instrument measures from 360 nm to 830 nm, thereby supporting the CIE spectral range for photometric measurements (ISO/CIE 19476). The spectral bandwidth is 10 nm which, in combination with the mathematical bandwidth correction according to CIE 214, provides a sufficiently high spectral resolution for most photometric and colorimetric applications. The illuminance measurement range is 1 lx to 350.000 lx, exceeding the performance of many other products. An absolute must-have for any array spectroradiometer is the ability to perform a dark current measurement for accuracy and to compensate for temperature influences. The CSS-45 sensor incorporates an electromechanical shutter for this purpose, which performs fully automatic dark current measurements when the operating temperature changes. The meter displays comprehensive radiometric, photometric and colorimetric quantities, all of which are derived from the measured spectrum.
Many additional measurands expand the supported applications of the handheld spectroradiometer. They are described on the product page of sensor CSS-45.
Calibration and adjustment
With its individual wavelength and linearity correction, the meter provides a cost effective solution for high precision light measurements, irrespective of the intensity or spectral distribution of the source.
A key quality feature of Gigahertz-Optik’s light meters is their precise and traceable calibration. The calibration laboratory of Gigahertz-Optik GmbH guarantees the high quality and traceability of their factory calibrations. The calibration of the CSS-45 with CSS-D is confirmed by a factory calibration certificate.
