Assess the Photobiological Safety of Lamps and Lamp Systems – IDR300-PSL

Lamp and luminaire manufacturers and test and certification companies can now measure photobiological safety of lamps and lamp systems easier, faster, and with higher accuracy than ever before.

Photobiological safety testing to follow global standards needs a measurement capability spanning the 200-3000 nm spectral wide range in consideration to six hazards to the eye and skin. The IDR300-PSL spectroradiometer from Bentham facilitates the necessary series of spectral radiance and spectral irradiance measurements, while ensuring total compliance with the recommended measurement instrumentation. The total hardware automation and full measurement guidance, calculation, and report generation enable the IDR300-PSL to be at the core of photobiological safety testing in accreditation and the light source manufacturer's laboratories worldover.
