chroma meter cl-200a

A Compact, Lightweight Instrument With Detachable Receptor Head And Comes With Easy-To-Use Software

Konica Minolta CL-200A chroma meter is the successor to the CL-200.

The CL-200A compact body fits in your palm.  It is battery operated so it can be taken along and used anyway.  The CL-200A is designed to measure not only old typical light sources but also new light sources such as LED lighting and organic EL lighting too. 

Konica Minolta CL-200A chroma meter measures illuminance (lux), chromaticity (xy), correlated color temperature (CCT), dominant wavelength (DW) and excitation purity (Pe) of various light sources. The CL-200A uses precision sensors coordinate with the International Commission of Illumination (CIE) define color matching functions, the results are displayed in a variety of application specific color notation.

CL-200A Chroma Meter

  • Compact – hand-held, lightweight design
  • Portable – battery operated, receptor head can also be detached from the main body for remote measurements
  • User-friendly – low battery indicator, can be controlled by a PC, easily transfer data to Excel, and includes a calibration function
  • Simultaneous measurements – has the ability to determine illuminance, color temperature, chromaticity, dominant wavelength, and excitation purity of a light source
  • Ideal for white LEDs – can measure the chromaticity from the phosphor as well as inspect the final product
  • Multi-use – can be used for any light source, ideal for LEDs and OLEDs
  • LED ranking function – using the included software, users can rank measurements on a chromaticity chart for easy comparison
