March 7, 2012

RAMSEY, N.J., March 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Konica Minolta Sensing Americas, Inc. (KMSA), the worldwide leader in the industrial measurement of color, light and 3D shape, announces the launch of its newest light measurement product, the T-10A Series Illuminance Meter.

Now available, the T-10A Series joins Konica Minolta’s legendary line of illuminance meters and inherits the same superior optical technology used by its predecessor the T-10. Among some of its newest improvements are the upgrade to USB communication and the ability to measure PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation) controlled light sources.

The new instrument series comes in 2 models, first is the T-10A, which features a detachable receptor head allowing for multiple point measurements. The second model, T-10MA features a mini receptor with a 1 meter cable that can be used for illuminance measurements in narrow spaces where a standard receptor head would not fit. It can also be installed on various types of equipment or jigs for light level measurements.

The T-10A Series provides high accuracy measurements for multiple types of applications including R&D at lighting product manufacturers, inspections of light sources, illuminance measurements for security lighting or streetlights and for any application requiring total flux or light distribution characteristics.

    T-10A Main Features:

    1.          Conformance

                 The T-10A Series conforms to DIN
                 5032 Part 7 1985 Class-B and Class
                 AA of JIS 1609-1:2006 "Illuminance
                 Meters Part 1: General Measuring
                 Instruments" Requirements. It also
                 conforms to RoHS (Restrictions on
                 Hazardous Substances Directive of
                 the European Union. Conformance to
                 these requirements ensures the T-
                 10A Series provides high accuracy
                 illuminance measurements.

    2.           Measurement of PWM controlled light

                 PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)
                 controlled light sources present a
                 problem for most illuminance meters
                 because only peak measurements can
                 be taken. T-10A can take an average
                 measurement of PWM light sources and
                 provide a more accurate reading.

    3.          Detachable Receptor Head

                 The receptor head can be detached and
                 connected via LAN cable to the
                 unit's main body for remote
                 measurements. Multiple detachable
                 receptor heads can also be daisy
                 chained via LAN cables to a single
                 main body for multipoint
                 measurements of up to 30 points.

    4.          USB Connection Interface

                 Upgraded from a RS-232C connection,
                 the new USB interface provides an
                 easier connection to a PC
