Konica Minolta Sensing Americas, Inc. (KMSA), the worldwide leader in the industrial measurement of color, light and 3D shape, announces the launch of its newest light measurement product, the T-10A Series Illuminance Meter.

Now available, the T-10A Series joins Konica Minolta's legendary line of illuminance meters and inherits the same superior optical technology used by its predecessor the T-10. Among some of its newest improvements are the upgrade to USB communication and the ability to measure PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation) controlled light sources.

The new instrument series comes in 2 models, first is the T-10A, which features a detachable receptor head allowing for multiple point measurements. The second model, T-10MA features a mini receptor with a 1 meter cable that can be used for illuminance measurements in narrow spaces where a standard receptor head would not fit. It can also be installed on various types of equipment or jigs for light level measurements.

The T-10A Series provides high accuracy measurements for multiple types of applications including R&D at lighting product manufacturers, inspections of light sources, illuminance measurements for security lighting or streetlights and for any application requiring total flux or light distribution characteristics.

T-10A Main Features:

  1. Conformance
    The T-10A Series conforms to DIN 5032 Part 7 1985 Class-B and Class AA of JIS 1609-1:2006 "Illuminance Meters Part 1: General Measuring Instruments" Requirements. It also conforms to RoHS (Restrictions on Hazardous Substances Directive of the European Union. Conformance to these requirements ensures the T-10A Series provides high accuracy illuminance measurements.
  2. Measurement of PWM controlled light sources
    PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation) controlled light sources present a problem for most illuminance meters because only peak measurements can be taken. T-10A can take an average measurement of PWM light sources and provide a more accurate reading.
  3. Detachable Receptor Head
    The receptor head can be detached and connected via LAN cable to the units main body for remote measurements. Multiple detachable receptor heads can also be daisy chained via LAN cables to a single main body for multipoint measurements of up to 30 points.
  4. USB Connection Interface
    Upgraded from a RS-232C connection, the new USB interface provides an easier connection to a PC
