Light Meter Calibration & Light Meter Trade In and Repair Services
As light meter calibration specialists, G&R Labs offers NIST traceable light meter calibration for light meters and light meter probe combinations in the spectrum from 220nm to 1200nm, including Laser and LED wavelengths.
G&R Labs services include:
- UVA meter calibration
- UVB meter calibration
- UVC meter calibration
In addition to offering light meter calibration for the light meters they manufacture, G&R Labs services most light meter manufacturers such as OAI, Nikon, PE, HTG, ABM, Mimir, JBA, Ultratek, Neutronix/Quintel, and many more.
Also, G&R Labs provides photometric (eye response) calibrations for the majority of photometric meters on the market. Photometric calibration is done in Footcandles, Lux, Footlamberts, cd/m², etc. Nikon Meter/probes are calibrated to the Nikon photometric calibration standard.
One-Day Turnaround NIST traceable light meter calibration
Anyone who needs to measure light must have accurately calibrated equipment they can rely on when performing measurements. As light meter calibration experts for many years, G&R Labs understands this and focuses on providing a customer centric approach.
This approach begins with the initial contact. When the phone rings at G&R Labs, someone answers the phone so customers always reach a “live” person who directs them to the right support personnel for their specific meter calibration needs. Fast response time for emails is also part of G&R Labs’ standard—customers never have to wait and wonder if anyone is going to respond.
Second—understanding the cost of down time—one day is the standard turnaround time for meter calibration. Ship it overnight to G&R Labs Monday and you can be back up and running by Wednesday.
All G&R Labs light meter calibration services are traceable to the National Bureau of Standards (NIST) with a +/- 0.5% in-house standard for radiometric calibrations and an in-house +/- 1.0% traceability for photometric calibrations. The 3 Sigma accuracy to the calibrated probe is +/-3.0% maximum, but G&R Labs standard is a +/-1.0% window from calibration to calibration.
G&R Labs light meter equipment is manufactured in an ISO 9001-2008 facility; We have an ISO 9001-2008 calibration certification for our calibration and assembly operation.
G&R Labs gives customers a credit on their present meter when they purchase a new G&R light meter. In many cases, an existing probe can be changed to work with a G&R Labs’ meter, saving the investment of a new meter probe. As an extra benefit, if you make the trade at a time when you are due for meter calibration, you receive the calibration as part of the upgrade. These meters are warranted for one year, with a warranty renewal every time the meter is recalibrated.
Light Meter Repair Services
When doing a customer’s light meter calibration, G&R Labs performs minor repairs (such as fixing broken connections) at no cost. Light meter cable or broken glass repairs services are offered for most major light meters. When replacing glass or cable, the meter is always recalibrated. One of the advantages of purchasing a G&R meter is that they are in metal cases –therefore less likely to be damaged beyond repair. If another manufacturer’s meter is beyond repair, it often is used as a trade-in for a G&R Meter using the same meter probe.
