Near field and Scattered light goniometer

The goniometers of opsira GmbH record angle-dependent photometric parameters around a light source, a luminaire, a detector or a material sample. The robust construction as well as the direct drive concept introduced and consistently implemented by opsira GmbH guarantee a very high precision of the goniometer systems. Photometers and radiometers, the luca luminance measuring systems, the spectral measuring systems spec'3 and spr'3 as well as high-quality photomultipliers are available as detectors.

opsira's ultimate goniophotometer solution is called robogonio. The highlight: a goniophotometer on a freely configurable, fully flexible KUKA robot arm.



The state-of-the-art and multifunctional measurement system

With the gonio'2pi you can professionally and precisely measure light source and luminaire properties (near-field photogoniometer) as well as scattering behaviour (BSDF measurements) of materials and surfaces with very high measurement dynamics. The goniometer is available in a near-field configuration (si), a scattered light configuration (bsdf) and in a complete version for both applications. A later upgrade from si to bsdf or vice versa is easily possible. The spectrum of the unique gonio'2pi thus ranges from the smallest light sources to large luminaire systems as well as for the analysis of material properties.
