CM 10 – Tristimulus colorimeter with large signal dynamic range

The CM 10 is a precise tristimulus colorimeter for a wide range of different light sources. It features a large signal dynamic range and a wide measuring range up to 600 klx. The color measuring head of the CM 10 contains 4 silicon photodiodes with full-glass filtering for the Xred, Xblue, Y, and Z tristimulus functions. This allows a particularly precise correction of the response function to be achieved.

CM 10 tristimulus colorimeter

The colorimeter can be used flexibly for a variety of different applications, for example as a standalone test station, together with a goniophotometer or an integrating sphere for measuring luminous flux and color coordinates.

Features

  • Determination of color values in the X-Y-Z (CIE-LAB), x-y-Y (CIE-LAB), u-v-Y (CIE-UCS 1960), u’-v’-Y (CIE-UCS 1976) coordinate systems and correlated color temperature in K
  • Wide measuring range over 6 decades; maximum display value 600 klx; display resolution 0.1 mlx in the most sensitive measuring range (applies to Y channel)
  • High spatial resolution with 14 mm light sensor active area (advantageous for goniometric measurements)
  • V(λ) correction ≤ 1.5 % in the Y channel; 4 silicon photodiodes with precision photocurrent amplifiers; thermostatic stabilization at 35°C
