Analytik announces UK and Ireland release of GL Optic SPECTIS 1.0 touch, the world’s first Android-based smart spectrometer.


Analytik, partner with German company, GL Optic, announces the first Android-based mobile smart spectrometer for measurement of colour co-ordinates, correlated colour temperature, colour rendering index, luminous flux and many more key lighting parameters.

GL Optic has designed a product to solve the challenges of the modern lighting industry and growing LED markets. This handheld spectrometer can be used for everyday quality control of luminaires, lighting engineer field GL SPECTIS 1.0 touchwork, lighting design & planning, and by any lighting professional who needs quality, reliability and accuracy in their light and colour measurement. The GL SPECTIS 1.0 touch is perfectly suited for fast assessment of light sources during production, quality control and design development.

The GL SPECTIS 1.0 touch integrates the performance of a high-end spectroradiometer into an intuitive, handheld, touch-screen device, making it the world’s first intelligent “smart” spectrometer based on the popular Android mobile-device OS. Critical photometric data is displayed on the 3.2”  colour touch display interface,  integrated Wi-Fi connectivity makes data transfer and analysis easy with the optional GL SPECTROSOFT PC software, and on-board temperature compensation provides excellent measurement stability and accuracy. Battery life is up to 6 hours and the removable 4Gb micro-SD data storage can auto-save many thousands of spectral power distribution (SPD) readings between 340-750nm at a high 1.7nm spectral resolution.

Among the most important features of the instrument are its high sensitivity optics, innovative miniature stray light reduction technology and temperature compensation algorithms, providing excellent signal to noise ratio of 1000:1, spectroradiometric accuracy to ±4% and colour coordinate uncertainty of just 0.0015. This allows the GL SPECTIS 1.0 touch to deliver accurate, precise and reliable results even in situations where signal strength is very low.

The device comes with a cosine-corrector optical diffuser to allow the user to simultaneously record lux, colour coordinates and rendering index measurements from a full 180 hemisphere. Quick change accessory probes allow similar characterisation for surface luminance (candelas/m^2) of emitting displays or reflecting surfaces, and individual LED luminous output (lumens) for performance testing and supplier-spec verification. Further photometric evaluation is easily accessible through GL SPECTROSOFT, including metamerism indices, colour/brightness binning, spectral comparison tools and a fully customisable report generation wizard.GL SPECTIS 1.0 touch and accessories

Mikolaj Przybyla, brand director of GL Optic, said: ‘A number of advanced technologies have been combined in the GL Spectis 1.0 touch to produce a unique portable instrument. At last users can enjoy the convenience of using a compact instrument without having to compromise on measurement quality.’
