Innovative Approach to Uniform Light Sources Changes the Game

Labsphere, Inc., a global leader in photonics test and measurement equipment and services, introduces its new HELIOS brand of modular uniform sources for absolute calibration of imagers and sensors. Labsphere provides innovative solutions for a wide range of applications including LED/SSL lighting, remote sensing, imager/consumer camera, automotive, defense and security, health and biomedical optics to both Production and Research environments.

The HELIOS product line offers a solution to industry needs today where no “one-size-fits-all” testing solution will serve every customer. There are 54 standard configurations that span a huge range of validated, tested and characterized solutions. Additionally, the product’s modular design, open architecture software, flexible spectrums and future-expandability enables users to meet demanding testing challenges in areas of hyperspectral, multispectral, SWIR and VIS-NIR optical regimes.

“Labsphere recognized that the market requires a standard system and we have spent several years developing this. We have created a family of products to serve the needs of diverse users with the advantages of standard product” said Imaging Products Marketing Director, Chris Durell. He continued “a configured standard will fit your specific need but have smooth installations, robust and tested designs, user friendly platform software, and you will be able to upgrade them as we add features and options to the platform, significantly extending the life of your tool.”

Today, researchers are more likely to work in collaboration with colleagues than ever before. A stable platform of instruments, with in-depth calibration data and robust designs, allows for joint efforts between labs or at enterprise accounts doing research in multiple locations.

Imaging Products Marketing Director, Chris Durell conveyed, “Labsphere market leadership demands that we be responsive to the ever changing technology and ever tightening uncertainty specifications in a dynamic way that allows the product to grow and change with customers’ test needs. Coupled with unparalleled characterization of the systems, and a ‘Family’ of system solutions that can serve needs from R&D to production to full, outdoor-in-field capability, we are bringing laboratory quality solutions to every aspect of image and sensor testing needs today.”
