The environmental meter is well-known for its durability as well as its good quality at a good price. The environmental meter has a wide measurement range. Thanks to its fast response time and compact housing you can use this meter with just one hand. The environmental meter can be used even by inexperienced personnel. With the environmental meter you will be able to perform a professional valuation. The environmental meter can be widely used within the industrial sector. For example, it is possible to check light conditions in workplaces, warehouses, industries and apartments with the environmental meter. In addition, emergency escape routes can be tested with the environmental meter for proper illumination.

The environmental meter is an irreplaceable instrument to prevent occupational hazards and it meets professional standards. Workplaces will become safer and you will save expenses. Latest research has discovered that too little as well as too much illumination in a workplace can be harmful for humans. You can also check illumination at home, in your dining-room for instance. The digital environmental meter measures in Lux units (lumen/m² or lumen/foot²). This solid and portable environmental meter provides very accurate results and comes with a zero-reset function when it is on. It also has a sensor with a response curve for all the visible spectrum. Light is measured by means of a silicon photodiode independently from the extension and direction of the light source. With the ease of use and rapid measurement methods, the device quickly becomes a familiar tool, and an inseparable part of the working day.
