Hyperion Series

Model : Hyperion Series

Description :

The Hyperion series colorimeter from Admesy is the successor of our successful MSE platform colorimeter. The Hyperion offers even better filter characteristics compared to other colorimeters and ultra high sensitivity packed in a typical robust and compact Admesy package. The Hyperion is truly the next level colorimeter, the ultimate user-friendly system for in-line colour measurement applications and display production.

• Nearly perfect CIE1931 filter characteristics
• Higher sensitivity: lower noise circuit
• High dynamic range
• High speed luminance & colour measurements for accurate flicker measurements
• All calculations done inside, including JEITA, for ease integration
• Colour measurement in XYZ, Yxy, Yu’v’
• Other colour spaces available via a supplied colour library
• USB and RS232 communication interfaces

*1 All measurements are performed 20 times on a LED display with sufficient signal noise ratio, value is based on 2 sigma. Sample speed depends on the measured sample. If the sample uses PWM, it will take longer. Use of lower rated values is strongly recommended to ensure repeatability.
*2 Operating temperature reaches from 0 to 40 degrees. Dark level compensation is optimized for operating in temperatures between 10 and 35 degrees.
