SpectraCal SC-METCR100 Overview

  • 1Description

The CR-100 Tristimulus Colorimeter / Photometer from SpectraCal is an instrument with a 380 to 780nm wavelength range that measures the intensity of color using 10 to 500 Hz synchronization frequencies. The CR-100 is solid-state with no mechanical shutter or moving parts to ensure high reliability and long MTBF. It is designed for display inspection or for mounting on fast moving XYZ tables. Its small size and shape allows for several instruments to be mounted in the same motion control system and the simultaneous measurement of several spots in the same display. The CR-100 is powered directly from any USB port and consumes 120mA at 5V (600mW), making it a portable instrument without the need for batteries. It is a USB 2.0 compatible device, remotely controlled by the host software from a personal computer, laptop, or net book. In addition, the CR-100 can be controlled by an Ethernet 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX IEEE-802.3 compliant connection or a RS-232 port. A USB 2.0 cable, universal mounting bar, and a rubber hood are included.

Machined Aluminum & Stainless-Steel Housing
Machined aluminum and stainless-steel housing can withstand high acceleration rates for motion positioning systems and environments.
Optional External Trigger Port.
The CR-100 can be equipped with an optional external trigger port. The external trigger port/sync input enables remote measurement activation from either a push button or a peripheral device, while the external trigger port/sync output allows synchronization signals to measure strobes/pulsed lights, and start/stop signals.
Computer-Based Software Application
The computer-based software application, is a streamlined, cross-platform, user-centric assistant used to perform colorimetric-based analysis.
Cross Platform
The working environment is the same in every platform while taking advantage of features specific to the host operating system.
The user interface is designed with a user-friendly approach with controls at your fingertips, not hidden away in menus or complex preferences.
The software is engineered to support simultaneous data capture from multiple connected instruments based on the contextual task at hand. You can select an instrument to take a reading or simultaneously use all open instruments.
Data Visualization
Measurements are presented in a customizable tabular grid or charts. The software supports multiple types of measurements that can co-exist gracefully within the same streamlined interface.
Display Flicker Measurements
The CR-100 uses proprietary hardware and software for fast sampling of display luminance to compute flicker levels (or modulation amplitude) and dominant flicker frequency components.
Response Time Measurements
The temporal captures at user selectable sampling rate of the CR-100 are suitable for analyzing response time as specified by the Information Display Measurements Standard (IDMS).
Four-Color Matrix Method Support
The Four-Color Matrix Method improves the accuracy of tristimulus colorimeters for measurements of color displays and is appropriate for cathode ray tubes (CRTs), liquid crystal displays (LCDs), and organic light emitting diodes (OLED) displays.
Match Calibration
The match calibration method, allows the colorimeter to be correctly matched to a reference instrument.
CIE Tristimulus Filter f1' Errors
The f1' value, specified in percentage error, represents the degree to which the relative spectral responsivity deviates from the CIE V(λ) curve.
