MUNRO provides a wide range of Light Meters for laboratories and industry. A 'light meter' is a handheld device that is used to measure or 'meter' light. Monitor light levels anywhere with fast, stable, and accurate response with Spectrum’s supply of lab light metersResults are easily read with an extra-large LCD and designed for easy operation and assured long life in harsh lab conditions.

Standard Light meters used to measure LED light, as you may have heard, are not efficient anymore. In the past, it is likely you've gotten inconsistent readings if you used a regular light meter to measure LED light. If you want to measure LED light, you'll need a light meter that can accomplish that. LED lights produce a wide spectrum of light that the standard light meters aren't equipped to measure. In these changing times, it is necessary to adapt and improvise. LED lights have turned out to be more environmentally friendly than other lighting kinds.Illuminance may be measured using both traditional and LED-based light meters. There are two measures of illuminance, metric and imperial. Lux (metric) or Footcandles (imperial) are two unit designations used by light meters to indicate the measured illuminance. Wavelengths in the range of 380–740 nm are typically responsive to the average human eye. The reaction of the naked eye to light is used to calibrate standard light meters, and the photopic curve of CIE is used to characterize this response.Outside of the CIE Photopic curve, standard meters are unable to reliably measure light. An LED light measurement is an illustration of this.
Using a light meter, one can measure the amount of light in a specific area with a lightweight, portable device. Various applications and uses are possible with these highly sensitive measuring instruments.
In addition to measuring the amount of light in a room or building, light meters can ensure the area is adequately lit. Lux meters and exposure meters are other terms for light meters.
It is important to measure light levels in public places and workplaces for health and safety reasons. Coming to photography refers to assessing the ideal equipment and settings for a planned photo shoot.
Offices, hospitals, and schools - in fact, any place with significant foot traffic - are examples of the first type of location. The law requires employers to provide adequate and suitable lighting in their workplaces. This has implications for safety in public areas as well.
Professional photographers use handheld meters to optimize shots. By measuring ambient light, they can determine shutter speeds and apertures. When used outdoors, where ambient light levels tend to be complex, this is especially useful.
The lighting for film scenes is also controlled by light meters by cinematographers and film set designers. Light meters can also be used for:
Lux meters can easily be used in a domestic, commercial, or industrial environment for the following reasons, among others:
The purpose of a light meter is to measure the brightness of the light. This includes things such as: Fluorescent light, High-pressure sodium and metal halide sources, Light-emitting bodies, UV light sources, Visible light sources, Incandescent lighting, LED lights.
Despite the fact that they can be used in several different settings, industries, and applications, the basic concept remains the same. A device such as this is made with the intention of being easy to use and versatile at the same time. As a final point, it is also worth mentioning that some models are evaluative, while others are capable of storing measurements either via internal memory or by means of the data logger that is built into the device. The angle at which the incident light is incident may also be corrected using the cosine function of some meters.
According to the type of light meter, each light meter will record light measurements in one of three different ways: footcandles (fc), candelas per square meter (cd/m2), or lux (lx). Calibration of a meter can help in ensuring that accurate measurements can always be taken, as it will ensure that the meter is operating correctly at all times, but the accuracy may decrease over time.
Many lux meters are small and portable handheld devices that are used for measuring light levels. Because of this, they have the advantage of being easy to transport, as well as being flexible enough to be used in a wide range of environments.
