LED Manufacturing – Beats Integrating Sphere
Nothing beats an integrating sphere for high precision light measurement, but it’s usually confined to laboratories and research departments. In a manufacturing environment, sometimes the situation calls for versatility and flexibility in light measurement, as in batch testing, ad-hoc testing, spot-checking, or customer demonstrations.
The MK350S Premium is a portable lab-level measuring instrument designed for just that. In addition to a full set of measurement metrics, it contains manufacturing features to boost productivity in QC activities.
- Compare Mode – side by side product compare
- Log Mode – Interval testing and data collection
- Checker Mode – Quality Assurance
- LED Bin rating (ANSI78.377)
Public Lighting Safety – Crush the bad lighting
TLA or Temporal Light Artifacts can be problematic for light safety in public areas. The MK350S Premium measures for problematic areas of lighting.
Flicker – Measures Flicker and provides severity assessment. (based on IEEE PAR 1789-2015 safety regulations)
Stroboscopic Effect – SVM metric measures one of the most dangerous lighting artifacts especially in factories with high speed equipment.
Blue Light Hazard – BLH is an insidious hazard implicated in cataracts and macular degeneration. MK350S Premium provides measurement and assessment. (IEC 62778 and utilized IEC 62471 standards)
Human Centric Lighting – HCL measures how lighting can impact our physiology and chemistry. Poor HCL ratings are implicated in diminished attention, depression and sleep disorders. (WELL Building Standard-V1 and CIE TN 003-2015 Report)
Lighting Design – Create ambiance consistently.
If you are a lighting designer or a light setup coordinator, you probably understand the very subjective nature of light and color. It’s very stressful work, especially with large projects and short deadlines.
With a spectrometer, you are validating your design by the numbers, and saving the data for subsequent projects. MK350S Premium provides Spectrums, LUX visuals and many Color Rendering Indices, to help designers quickly and confidently evaluate their lighting conditions.
Academics and Research – Perfect Teaching Tool, Data Collection, Data Analytics
The MK350S Premium is widely employed by major Universities and Research organizations. It’s easy to transport from office, to lab and classroom. It connects to large screens through PCs, collects large swaths of data, and easily transports and exports data to other systems for data analysis.
Grow Lights and Indoor Agriculture
Indoor agriculture is a fast growing industry with potential hi-impact on global food supplies. MK350S Premium can measure PFD and PPFD for grow lights.
Spectrum Measurement – Hitting the target
Precision is paramount when presenting credible numbers . UPRtek spectrometers uses Diffraction Grating with a CMOS Linear Image Sensor to gain very tight bandwidth differentiation.
The MK350S Premium provides over 40 light measurement metrics (CCT, LUX, CRI, CIE (1976/1931), PPFD, CQS, Duv, LambadaP, S/P ratio.
Connect-up for Big View & Data Analytics
One of our most popular features is our uSpectrum PC software. It allows the MK350S Premium to connect to PC devices through USB cable for full screen viewing, data collection and data export to popular software.
Full Featured means Full Confidence.
Don’t get caught without the right tools for the job. If you are a lighting specialist, the MK350S Premium is the most comprehensive product in our lineup. And that means confidence in your capabilities and confidence from your customers!

What is a "Spectral" PAR Meter
Valentine’s Day is approaching, and you're an anxious indoor rose farmer trying to encourage your buds to bloom in time.
The good news is that researchers have begun to understand the triggering mechanisms for seed germination, flowering, and fruiting, involving grow-light strategies
Now indoor farmers are using this information with “Spectral” PAR meters, measuring grow lights for a light metric PSS (Phytochrome Photostationary State) to trigger photomorphogenesis (i.e., plant transformations caused by light).
