The World's Fastest and Most Accurate High-Resolution Imaging Colorimeters.

ProMetric I is designed to address the demands for high-volume manufacturing of displays, backlit components, light sources, and assemblies. Whether expanding test coverage or increasing throughput, ProMetric I delivers the required performance for highly accurate color and luminance measurements in an automated manufacturing environment.

ProMetric I is designed around scientific-grade CCD sensors, ranging in resolution from 2 megapixels in the I2 to 29 megapixels in the I29. These sensors enable pixel-level measurements of displays (LCD, OLED), inter- and intra character luminance measurements on backlit keyboards and panels, and accurate measurements of LED luminance and color in luminaires with large LED arrays.

ProMetric I contains Smart Technology™ features that simplify operation and provide more accurate measurement results. For example, the electronically controlled focus and aperture setting provides calibrated measurements over a wide range of working distances and field of view. This greatly simplifies measurement set up and allows fully-automated remote configuration of your production test systems

High-Resolution, Scientific-Grade CCD Sensors

The ProMetric I2 uses a scientific-grade, 2-megapixel (1600 x 1200) CCD sensor that is thermoelectrically cooled to provide accurate, repeatable 12-bit measurements. The ProMetric I8 and ProMetric I16 offer 8-megapixel (3296 x 2472)  and 16-megapixel (4896 x 3264) CCD sensors, respectively. The newest member of the I Series family, the ProMetric I29, is a 29-megapixel (6576 x 4384) model, built to provide high resolution and the fastest possible cycle times.

Purpose-Built for High-Speed Manufacturing

A production line is a harsh environment and reliable communications can be a challenge. ProMetric I supports high-speed USB and Ethernet communications, providing highly reliable operation over long distances, even in the most demanding manufacturing environments.

ProMetric I is optimized to work with the industry-leading TrueTest™ Automated Visual Inspection Software from Radiant. TrueTest provides a complete, turnkey solution for high-volume manufacturing of displays, illuminated keyboards and lighting products, with test sequencing interface to perform multiple inspections in-line in a matter of seconds. Whether you need to increase your test coverage or reduce test time for automated visual inspection, ProMetric I is designed specifically for your application.

Delivering Smart Technology™ Innovations

  • Smart Control™ for fast, precise setup: Smart Control allows you to electronically adjust both focus and aperture settings of your lens.
  • Smart Calibration™ for automatic high-accuracy results: ProMetric cameras offer a variety of electronically controlled lenses, each calibrated over a wide range of working distances and aperture settings. ProMetric systems monitor focal distance and aperture settings and automatically applies the correct flat field calibration, greatly simplifying setup and ensuring accurate measurement results.
  • Smart Touch™ to enable touch input via an integrated touchscreen display interface on the ProMetric I Imaging Colorimeter, which simplifies camera setup and control.

Calibrations

For highly accurate color and light measurements that match values perceived by the human eye, Radiant cameras and lenses are calibrated to obtain absolute data in any environment. Factory calibration procedures are performed on each Radiant camera to enable traceability to national standards such as NRL, ETL, PTB, and NIST. (Is traceability of your measurement system a critical part of your application? Contact Radiant for additional options and support.)

Each Radiant camera and lens pair can also be calibrated for unique applications, in the factory or in the field, ensuring consistency regardless of variation in:

  • Focal Distance: Flat-field calibration; Image scaling
  • Device Spectral Power Distribution (SPD): Luminance calibration; Color calibrations, such as one-color calibration, four-color calibration (depending on RGB or single-color emitters); LED and white phosphor LED calibration
  • Lensing effects: Distortion calibration (if applicable)

    Applications

    Radiant's ProMetric I Series of imaging colorimeters meets the requirements of high-speed production operations, combining the benefits of automation with the accuracy of human visual perception to address a range of applications:

    • Color and luminance testing of displays
    • Light measurement and characterization of LED products
    • Appearance uniformity testing of illuminated instrument clusters and keypads
    Display Testing

    Display Testing: Used for precise measurement of qualities of light and color across a display, the ProMetric I Imaging Colorimeter captures quantifiable values of spatial luminance, contrast, uniformity, and chromaticity (in CIE x, y and u’, v’). The system can also detect defects like mura, light leakage, and dead pixels or lines in any area of the display.

    ProMetric I captures comprehensive luminance and chromaticity values of each display, with analyses applied in a matter of seconds. Equipped for USB 2.0 and Ethernet communications, the ProMetric I provides highly reliable operation for production operations from camera to camera and line to line, making it the solution of choice for global display panel production manufacturing operations.

    Automotive Systems: Light, color, and dimensional accuracy are key for visual performance, regulatory compliance, and consumer satisfaction of all illuminated elements inside and outside the vehicle, from instrument panels and dome lights to headlamps. Paired with automated analysis software from Radiant’s TrueTest platform, the ProMetric I offers the complete measurement solution for systems from center stacks to instrument panels, from headlamps to head-up displays.

    ProMetric I Automotive applications

    Electronically controlled lenses come standard with each ProMetric I system, allowing manufacturers to use software to easily set focus and aperture settings on the fly as image distance changes, or when required for regulatory testing (such as DFF Black Mura Gradient measurement).

    Lighting: From individual LEDs to large luminaires, Radiant’s light measurement expertise spans decades with applications in data acquisition for light source modeling to correction of non-uniformity for large LED panels. The ProMetric I is applied for both goniometric and non-goniometric measurement of light sources, completely characterizing the three-dimensional output of a source (generating ray sets, IES, or LDT/EULUMDAT files) or evaluating illuminance, luminous intensity, and chromaticity as well as geometric aspects like distribution cut-off gradient and shape.
