LUX METER FT3424

LUX METER FT3424
Environmental measuring instruments
Broad coverage from low to high illuminance
Measure at 0.01 lx resolution to a maximum of 200,000 lx
Compatible with LED lighting
• Complies with DIN Class B and JIS Class AA
• Save up to 99 measured values in the instrument’s
internal memory and transfer them to a computer
later for improved work efficiency
• Timer hold function lets you make measurements
in remote locations while avoiding the effects of
shadows and reflections

Support for measurement of 1 lx makes the FT3424 ideal for
low-illuminance measurement
20 lx range measurement resolution
0.01 lx
1. Timer hold function
Retain the measured value after a user-configured amount of time has
elapsed from the time the TIMER key is pressed. In this way, you can time
measurement to occur after you have moved away from the lux meter so that
measurement is not affected by clothing, shadows, etc.
Measurement delayed until
operator is out of the way
Effect of shadow
Timer settings
Select from 5 / 10 / 15 / 20 / 30 / 45 / 60 sec.
Remaining time display
Counts down with timer.
After the set time has elapsed
The measured value is retained. → The backlight turns on and the beep sounds for 3 sec.
2. Measurement with sensor and display units undocked
Large, easy-to-see LCD display
The backlight turns on automatically whenever a
measured value is retained in a low-illuminance
environment.

Relative Spectral Response Characteristics in the Visible Spectrum
Angled Incident Light Characteristics
Human perception of brightness ranges from 380 nm to 780 nm in the
wavelength and is the maximum at 555 nm. The lnternational Commission
on Illumination (CIE) has established comparative standards for luminosity,
setting the maximum perception for 1 and indicating the amount of
perception of each wavelength by the relative value, and calculating the
average of many people. In this instrument, the relative spectral response
characteristics are close to the comparative standards for luminosity.
It is known that the luminance is proportional to the cosine of
the incident angle of light (the cosine law).
In this instrument, the shape of the light sensor, hook etc. is
so made that it can follow the cosine law closely.
Graph illustrates typical characteristics.Characteristics exhibited by individual products may vary slightly.

Save
in the field
Save measured values for multiple
measurement locations in the instrument’s
internal memory on the spot for later
display at your convenience.

Data communications functionality
Transfer to
your PC
Transfer data saved in the instrument’s
internal memory to a computer via a
USB connection. Data can be saved
as a text file.
Press the MEMORY key.
When making measurements at
numerous locations, this feature lets
you save values on the spot and then
create a report later in the office at your
convenience.
