Universal LightProbes™ offer a unique Two-part Solution that provides quick and easy customization for your specific LED color and intensity test applications.

First, determine the type of test and output you require and choose a pre-programmed Sensor that addresses those requirements.  Second, customize the test for your particular mechanical requirements and constraints,  by combining the Sensor with any of our interchangeable Fiber-Optic Probes.

The Universal LightProbe Penta Sensor is our most popular Sensor, fulfilling most LED color and intensity test requirements with a simple solution that has been relied upon by thousands of test engineers for over a decade. The Penta Sensor can be combined with any of our Fiber-optic Probes – including the Trident Fiber-optic Probe – which provides the most cost-effective LED test solution available.

For LED tests appliations that have specific requirements in terms of output, or the type of test, simply choose a Universal LightProbe™ Sensor that is pre-programmed to meet those specific test and output requirements:

Type of Test

Color and/or Intensity:  Penta, SpectraSpectra USB or Unicolor Sensors

Single Color only:  Unicolor Digital Sensors (no intensity output)

ON/OFF:  Blinx Digital or Ultra High Sensitivity Sensors (“color-blind”)

Type of Output/Interface

Analog Voltage Output: Penta, Spectra or Unicolor Sensor

Digital Voltage Output: choose Unicolor Digital, Blinx Digital or Ultra High Sensitivity Sensor

Serial Digital Output and USB Interface: choose Spectra USB Sensor

LED Type Under Test

Most LEDs: Penta, Spectra, Unicolor, Unicolor Digital

Extremely Bright LED:  Low-Sensitivity Sensor – available in all sensor types

Extremely Dim LED:  Ultra High Sensitivity or  Penta High Sensitivity Sensor

Blinking LED:  Blinx Digital Sensor

Fiber-Optic Probes

OP Rainbow no text

Universal LightProbe™ Fiber-Optic Probes come in over 30 models, which allows for precise requirements in spacing, alignment and working distance from the LED’s, as well as LED’s that are difficult to access.

Test Environment

Closely Spaced LEDs:  Small-Aperture Fiber-optic Probes test LEDs as close as 0.050″ on centers

Large Quantities of LEDs:  Trident Fiber-optic Probes for the most cost-efficient test LED test

Dim, Hard-to-reach, or Misaligned LEDs:  Wide-Aperture and Very Wide-Aperture Fiber-optic Probes compensate for these issues

Side-Emitting LEDs:  A variety of Fiber-optic Probes are available in both Wide and Small-Aperture models

Refined Intensity Measurement:  Wide-aperture Fiber-optic Probes with Contacting Tips enable consistent intensity measurements
