Introduction to Goldilux
Supplied with a SANAS accredited calibration certificate.
The Goldilux range allows you to choose the lightmeter and appropriate external probe to meet your requirements.
The Autoranging Lightmeter has no sensor and is used with the separate probes.
The three probes allow the measurement of UV-A, UV-B and UV-C light sources. Probes are ideal to measure light that is out of reach or that is harmful to exposure.
As there is no sensor on this unit the probes have to be used. UV-A Lightmeter with Sensor
UV-A Lightmeter with Sensor
As UV-A light is the least dangerous in the light radiation spectrum light measurements can be taken without using a probe.
All three probes can be used with the Lightmeter. Precaution when measuring light is always advised.
The Goldilux Lightmeter Probes
The probes can be used with one of the lightmeter’s above. There are three options that interchange with the main unit.
Autoranging Light Meter
lux and KiloLux, resolution 0.1 lux, 1 lux, up to 200 000 lux.
This Digital and Auto-ranging Light meter is the most stable, robust and reliable light measuring instrument suitable for most laboratory and field uses.
Autoranging Lux Meter for LED’s
0-20 000 LUX (GAL-2L) 0-200 000 LUX (GAL-2H, light probe)
The Goldilux LEDLUX is an illuminance meter specifically calibrated for high accuracy measurement of LED lighting. Guaranteed performance for white LEDs with colour temperature from 2700k to 6500k. The instrument is issued with a Certificate of Conformance. An accredited certificate endoresed by an ISO 17025 lab is available as an option. All the usual features of quality of the Goldilux light meter asl apply to the LEDLUX.
400 - 500 nm
The phototherapy radiometers have been designed to measure the effective irradiance of blue light used for the treatment of jaundice in new-born babies (hyperbilirubinaemia).
330 - 400 nm, microW/cm^2,
Combining a probe for visible light and UV-A meter - or vice versa (using a visible light meter with a UV-A probe)- will result in a most effective measurement system for visible and the UV-A spectral range. A UV-A meter can also be paired with a UV-B probe and a UV-C probe. Alternatively a Display (no sensor) can be used with alternative connection of UV-A, UV-B or UV-C probes.
Goldilux UV – A Probe – sensor (only)
330-400 nm, microW/cm^2
UV-A light sources may also find use in causing fluorescence on bank notes to check if they are legit or may be applied for curing of glues and resins in certain manufacturing industries.
Goldilux UV – B Probe – Sensor (only)
Ionizing radiation in the range of 250-320 nm, microW/cm^2,
UV-B radiation is used for therapeutic exposure under medical supervision (e.g. Psoriasis and similar skin conditions).
Goldilux UV – C Light Probe (Sensor only)
Short wave ionizing radiation, 225-280 nm, microW/cm^2
UV-C sources must be out of line of sight. Measurements are best with a meter system (consisting of the probe and a display) to check that the lamps are emitting the short-wave radiation at a wavelength of 253.7 nm standing at a distance. The probe - display system allows measurement at a distance of 3 m as a standard.
Cosine Probe (visible light) – sensor only
Lux and KiloLux, resolution 0.1 lux, 1 lux, up to 200 000 lux.Visible light
The flexible probe-meter architecture allows the most versatile combination of system measuring visible Light and UV-A radiation. The probe can be plugged into either a display or a meter for multiple sensor measurements.
