BemStudio’s characterization of luminaires will allow you to know exactly how a luminaire performs. This characterization is done through a series of standardized tests that are performed either in an integrated sphere or in a goniophotometer.
 
Integrating spheres are configured to accurately measure luminous flux (lumens) as well as the color temperature and color rendering of the light source under test.
 
The goniophotometers provide both near-field (luminance) and far-field (luminous intensity) data and are used for generating standard photometric data in the popular .ies and .ldt (EULUMDAT) formats for light designers that use software such as Dialux, Relux, Evo and Calculux.

CHARACTERISATION OF LUMINAIRE

WHAT CAN WE MEASURE?

Photometric / Spectroradiometric
• Spectral radiant flux (Watts/nm) Photon flux (µmol/s/nm), 350-1000 nm    
• Spectral irradiance (W/m2.nm) Photon irradiance (µmol/s/m2.nm), 200-1700 nm
• Total luminous flux (lumens) Photon flux (µmol/s)    
• Radiance (W/sr.m2.nm) Photon luminance (µmol /s/m2/sr.nm), 200-1700 nm
• Scotopic flux (lumens)    
• Illuminance (lux)
• Luminous intensity (candelas)    
• PSS, Phytochrome Photostationary State
• RCR, relative cycling rate    
• S:P ratio
