Portable spectroradiometers from Gamma Scientific updated
Gamma Scientific’s new GS-1160 handheld spectroradiometers are stand-alone instruments designed for lighting installers, designers and engineers who require accurate, low cost spectral measurements such as:
- Colour & Chromaticity
- Gamma & White balance
- Flicker & Uniformity
- Luminance, CRI & Delta UV
- Spectral power distribution
- Peak & Dominant wavelength
- Excitation purity
The Gamma Scientific handheld GS-1160 uses a CMOS linear image sensor, covering the wavelength range from 380 to 780 nm in 1 nm steps.
The instrument offers integration times from under 0.0001 to 5 seconds and delivers the spectral data via an onboard colour graphical display. This data can also be stored on an SD card, making it ideal for the portable spectral evaluation of LEDs, OLEDs and Quantum Dot displays.
The GS-1160B is the desktop version of the above. It features all the same measurement functions, but no display, and outputs the captured data via USB or RS-232 to a PC.

Display colour, intensity and flicker measured with new instruments from Gamma Scientific
Gamma Scientific [ @gammascientific ] has just introduced two new instruments for display measurements. Both offer colour, intensity and flicker testing of all types of LED, LCD, OLED and Quantum Dot screens.
The GS-1160 is the touchscreen-equipped handheld version, while the GS-1160B is designed for the bench and operates in conjunction with PC-based analysis software. The GS-1160 can also be used as a desktop system as it is supported by the same software.
These spectroradiometers, to give them their proper name, deliver faster results with repeatability superior to filter-based instruments. Additional measurement capabilities include gamma, white balance and uniformity.
Data is output on both via USB, or can also be stored on an SD card in the GS-1160 portable model. The GS-1160B can be programmed for custom testing as it has an Application Programming Interface (API). Commands can be sent via RS-232 or the USB.

EXFO makes optical fibre inspection smarter
A dirty and/or damaged optical fibre is a common and avoidable problem, and EXFO’s intelligent fibre inspection solutions are designed to simplify and speed this task. Proper connector inspection is an essential best practice.
The solution comprises an inspection probe linked to a display platform. The former provides a crisp magnified digital image of connector endfaces, over a WiFi or USB connection, to a handheld test set with display for combined applications, a modular platform for advanced multitesting, a PC or laptop for labs, or even an Android™ smartphone or tablet for even more flexibility. Special analysis software helps ensure connectors and adaptors are clean and free of any defect, removing the risk of misinterpretation.
The EXFO FIP-400 series probes deliver a variety of functions depending on model chosen and display platform used. For more information on options and specifications, please contact us.
EXFO also offer Power Meters, Variable Attenuators, and Light Sources within their Handheld and Benchtop Instrument Ranges.
Special EXFO test equipment catalogue for R&D/Manufacturing
EXFO has released a new catalogue covering their entire range of products for the fibre-based telecom engineer. Equipment for network engineers and R&D/Manufacturing is covered but, as Elliot Scientific only specialises in the latter, we have made available a special abbreviated version for download from our EXFO product pages.
Examples of the test equipment covered include:
