LI-210R Photometric Sensor

LI-210R
Photometric Sensor

The LI-210R Photometric Sensor measures light with the same sensitivity as a typical human eye. The photometric sensor is ideal for evaluating illumination in work areas, exhibits, interior lighting, and in public spaces. Measurement units are lux or klux.

Why choose the LI-210R?

  • Spectral response closely matches the CIE Standard observer Curve
  • Excellent cosine response—sensitive to light from all directions up to an 82° angle of incidence
  • Detachable sensor simplifies installation and removal, making it ideal for platforms with complex cabling
