The BV room is based on our core product, the LMK, our ILMD system. It is integrated into a custom-designed laboratory and returns luminous intensities, illuminances, or even color coordinates as measurement results.
This system can be adapted to a wide range of applications, as it is almost freely scalable in terms of resolution and measuring distance. Thus, setups with a very short measuring distance of less than 1 m are possible for small measurement objects. However, large laboratories with a measuring distance of 10 - 25 m can also be realized for high-precision measurements in the automotive headlamp sector. 
Due to its size, the BV room is mainly used in the research and development area but also partly for production support. We also offer the KMP for EOL measurements. 


To make sure that your BV room is perfectly adapted to your needs and specifications, we offer extensive services:

  • Photometrical calibration (luminous intensity in cd, illuminance in lx, luminous flux in lm, luminance in cd/m²)
  • Geometrical calibration (spherical coordinate system in °, metric coordinate system in mm)
  • Laboratory layout
  • Maintenance and support

The thesis shall give an overview of the currently existing measurement techniques for the determination of luminous intensity distributions. The main focus is to show for which measurement object which measurement technique is applicable. Where overlaps can be found, i.e. several measurement techniques can be used for the same object and vice versa, and where separation is necessary. Similarities and differences between the measurement techniques and the resulting advantages and disadvantages for the measurement of concrete objects will be discussed.
