The GL SPECTIS 1.0 Touch Optical Spectrophotometer is being used by Philips Lighting at the Chelsea Football Club arena.

Philips Lighting using our device in one of the best stadiums in the world – the famous Chelsea Football Club Arena (Stamford Bridge). Mike Simpson, technical and design director said that “The GL Optic device allows us to rapidly and accurately assess the quality (brightness, color and stability) of LED-based lighting installations. The GL SPECTIS 1.0 Touch is a very fast spectrometer and easy to use in the field.” 

Philips has provided state-of-the-art ArenaVision LED pitch lighting for Chelsea Football Club making Stamford Bridge the first stadium for a top flight football club equipped with this pioneering lighting system, which will ensure that the stadium continues to be one of the most famous sporting arenas in the world.

The Philips ArenaVision LED floodlighting system is an innovative LED pitch lighting solution, designed to provide footballers, fans and TV broadcasters with the best possible experience and to support the latest Premier League requirements for TV broadcasting. These include lighting standards for high definition super slow-motion replays, avoiding the flicker synonymous with conventional lamps. The system can also be used to create special entertainment lighting effects that would normally require dedicated stage-lighting, providing the opportunity for the floodlights to be integrated into pre- and post-match light shows to help build the atmosphere and excitement in the stadium.

Speaking about the benefits of using the GL SPECTIS 1.0 touch at the arena, technical and design director, Mike Simpson, says “LED lighting is best tested with spectroscopic equipment; old-style lux meters and color temperature devices are not so accurate for LED-based lighting. The GL Optic device allows us to rapidly and accurately assess the quality (brightness, color, stability) of LED-based lighting installations. The GL SPECTIS 1.0 touch is a very fast spectrometer and easy to use in a field.”
GL Optic’s smart spectrometer gives you the best tool for precise and automated testing of LED luminaire performance leading to making the right design decisions and taking control of LED-based systems implementations”.
The GL SPECTIS 1.0 touch is the world’s first smart spectrometer. A unique, reliable, precise and intuitively operated spectral instrument specifically designed for the measurement and characterization of next generation light sources – especially LEDs – providing accurate photometric information, spectral distribution and color co-ordinates conforming to CIE standards.

Award-winning Pico Automotive Test Kits

Pico Automotive Test Kits are comprehensive kits for testing all aspects of car performance – is now available in four versions to suit most users. Pico Automotive Test Kit  can be used to measure and test virtually all of the electrical and electronic components and circuits in modern vehicles including: Ignition (primary & secondary); injectors & fuel pumps; starter & charging circuits; ABS sensors; crank & cam sensors; lambda, airflow, knock & MAP sensors, glow plugs; timer relays; relative compression tests.

Whether you are an enthusiast, weekend mechanic, automotive technician or vehicle manufacturer our vehicle diagnostics equipment will help you to save time and money. Our award-winning automotive oscilloscopes work with any bike, car or truck and make it easier — and faster — for you to find faults. With the increasing number of sensors, actuators and electronic circuits found on today’s vehicles an automotive oscilloscope (also known as a ‘lab scope’) is the one tool that will make it faster and easier for you to diagnose vehicle faults - using an affordable and easy-to-use range of automotive oscilloscopes. 

Designed purely for use in automotive applications, Pico automotive oscilloscopes combine the performance and features you would expect from the market leader in PC oscilloscope technology, at a price you can afford. The latest — and most popular — automotive oscilloscopes are the PicoScope 4000 Series. Available in both 2 and 4-channel versions, the PicoScope 4000 Series are compatible with CAN bus, LIN bus and the new FlexRay standards. automotive softwareYou can purchase a PicoScope automotive oscilloscope on its own, or as part of an Automotive Diagnostics Kit. These simple to use kits contain everything you need to turn your PC into a powerful automotive diagnostic tool. PicoScope Automotive Software is a powerful PC-based easy-to-use software package to control your PicoScope lab scope. Once you have a PicoScope lab scope you can also make use of PicoDiagnostics software for a complete engine health check. With just a simple connection to the battery you can perform a cylinder balance test, detect misfires and carry out a compression test. The results are displayed in a bargraph that can easily be understood by both you and your customer. The growing range of accessories includes products such as Mixmaster which lets you view an ignition parade display of up to 12 cylinders, coil-on-plug extension leads and our pressure transducer. We also have a range of software, books and videos to help with vehicle diagnostics.

EasyLoader - Portable Inc-Circuit Programmer - no PC needed!

The In-Circuit Programmer/Loader (“EasyLoader” or “eLoader”) is a standalone device that was designed to provide a flexible and cost-effective solution for electronic device manufacturers, as well as for hardware design companies and their customers. It allows you to upgrade code on any JTAG/SPI/I2C compliant device (like FPGA/CPLD/EEprom/Flash, etc.) or Microcontrollers at any time of development, testing or production.
Its small size and ease of use make the “eLoader” a unique device for the electronics manufacturing industry. Practically anyone can use it without making any mistakes. Once configured using a PC, it can be repeatedly used for a particular electronic product. An intuitive red/green LED interface indicates the operation status, making it ideal for a manufacturing line environment. Eliminate the need to pre-program (before assembly) as code releases can be loaded momentarily — just before a manufactured device is shipped to a customer.
Upon initial configuration, the “eLoader” functions as a completely standalone device that does not require connection to a host PC, power cable or batteries.
Board Assembly House
The “eLoader” can be used in a board assembly house to program the programmable logic devices as they come off the assembly line. It’s easy to use, so minimal training is required for the personnel. After initial configuration, the device does not require a computer connection for normal operation. This can help you completely avoid preprogramming parts and first article sign off, and as a result you can significantly reduce production costs.
Update Firmware Prior to Shipping
Boards can be programmed just prior to shipping to the customer. This ensures that only the latest firmware will be used. It also adds further flexibility, because a board can be programmed with different security/capability settings based on the particular customer order. There’s no need to stock boards with different firmware; instead, program each board as the order comes in.
Remote Firmware Update
The compact size and ease of use make it possible to simply ship the “eLoader” to customers. The eLoader starts working after the power is turned on so it can be easily operated by anyone. There’s no need to send an engineer overseas just to reprogram a customer’s device or to ship a device back to the factory for an update or replacement.
Because the “eLoader” doesn’t need a computer for normal operation, it can be a very useful portable programming/loading solution in the event that the debugging laboratory and engineering cubes are in different locations.
