PCE-172-ICA light meter incl. ISO calibration certificate
For fast and accurate light measurement

The light meter PCE-172 is used to measure the lighting conditions in industry, agriculture and research. Increasingly, the light meter is also used to test lighting in workplaces, in the decoration of shop windows and by designers. It meets international standards for this type of light meter.

The light meter provides measurement results in Lux and FootCandle units, where 1 fc is equal to 10.70 lux. Calculator for the conversion of lux. The device automatically detects the peak value if this value lasts for at least 10 μs. Due to the selectable measuring range the lux meter PCE-172 has high accuracy. The handling is very easy. This light meter can also be used by untrained persons. However, it is always important to take into account in a lux measurement that certain conditions are met. For example, the distance and angle between the light meter and the object to be measured should be set as accurately as possible in order to achieve reproducible results.
