Lamp and luminaire manufacturers as well as test and certification companies can now measure photobiological safety of lamps and lamp systems faster, easier, and with higher accuracy than possible in the past.

Photobiological safety testing to adhere to universal standards needs a measurement capability spanning the 200-3000 nm spectral wide range in consideration to six hazards to the eye and skin. Bentham’s IDR300-PSL spectroradiometer enables the necessary series of spectral radiance and spectral irradiance measurements, while guaranteeing total compliance with the proposed measurement instrumentation. The total hardware automation and comprehensive measurement guidance, calculation, and report generation enable the IDR300-PSL to be at the center of photobiological safety testing in accreditation and the light source manufacturer's laboratories globally.
