The Klein K-80 Colorimeter has been upgraded with enhanced optics, giving it a 16X advantage in sensitivity over the previous K-8. The K-80 continues the Klein tradition of high speed, versatile, mobile and accurate colorimeters that Klein has come to be known for. The K-80 can be used on any display size, not just small ones, although the smaller measurement area makes it ideal for hard to measure screen sizes.
Like all Klein colorimeters, the K-80 is ruggedly constructed with machined aluminum and high impact plastic. The K-80’s auto ranging is solid state, and the housing is impact resistant to hold up to the 24 hours a day, 7 days a week usage that the display manufacturers require. The K-80’s compact size and light weight make transportation convenient. It is also fitted with a universal tripod mount for easy positioning and integration into workflows.
For maximum accuracy, not only is the f1’ of Y critical, but the accuracy of X and Z as well. Each diode has specially layered absorption filters designed for maximum color accuracy. Klein colorimeters are also rigorously tested to ensure that each device is thermally stable with an operating temperature range of 15-35 C.
The Klein K-80 provides industry standard colorimetetry analysis, as well as the capability to measure flicker. The probe can measure color and flicker on TVs, LED backlit displays, CRTs, phones, tablets and more. The Klein K-80 can also measure and log flashes from various direct light sources. While the Klein K-80 was designed with small displays in mind, it is an ideal all in one solution for display calibration and flicker analysis.
The Klein K-80 is also a fully functioning FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) flicker meter. The probe measures and integrates Y data in the head, streams in real time to the PC, and then the FFT is performed. The Klein K-80 can measure regular flicker between 1-150Hz. Multiple methods for displaying flicker data including JEITA, VESA, and Contrast methods are selectable in the software. The Klein K-80 can be used to analyze any luminance source, including the common refresh-rate flicker in monitors, and random flashes caused by the transmission of current variations through solid state devices (LEDs). All flicker information can be logged and reported with Klein Chromasurf.
