Characterizing Photometric Flicker

Interesting read: in November 2018 the US Department of Energy published this report on Characterizing Photometric Flicker with Handheld meters. This publication follows the earlier publication of February 2016 where they evaluated multiple desktop light meters.

Admesy was proud that our Asteria lightmeter was positively evaluated in the 2016 report, and even more proud that the Asteria was selected for permanent installation at the PNNL’s Lighting Metrology Laboratory.
So nice to read that the Asteria is used in the 2018 report as a reference for the handheld meters under comparison.

Both articles are certainly word reading for those interested in light measurements and flicker characterization.

Just saying… the Asteria is very small and compact so can also easily serve for “on the go” handheld measurements… all you need is a laptop or tablet.
