WOKINGHAM, England, January 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Acal BFi, the European leader in advanced technology solutions, today announced the extension of an exclusive distribution agreement with lighting control and measurement company, Viso Systems, to include the additional territories of France, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom.
"Viso are pleased to partner with Acal BFi to distribute our product lines in more territories," said Christian Krause, Director at Viso. "Acal BFi's reputation for bringing unique, high quality products and services to European markets, whilst supporting customers with demonstrations, training and installations, combined with our innovative manufacturing and test capabilities, enables both Acal BFi and Viso to expand our market opportunities and at the same time enhance our ability to meet the needs of our busy customers."
"This agreement comes after a successful two year partnership in Germany and will allow both companies to work even more closely together to provide the latest, most innovative optical products to our customers," comments Jean-Claude Sanudo, Photonics Business Development Director of Acal BFi. "The Viso range greatly complements Acal BFi's current portfolio; their products make light characterisation affordable and easy to use for non-specialists, whilst also providing the accuracy and reliability required for the most demanding environments and applications."
Viso Systems develop, design and manufacture innovative lighting control and measurement technologies. These include the pioneering LightSpion and LabSpion range that can measure any light source within a few seconds with no expert knowledge required. Measurements include lumen, beam angle, CRI, colour temperature and lumen per watt.
The portable Labspion Goniometer measures light sources of up to 8cm in diameter (or 22cm with the extender), while the 2 axis Goniometer Labspion measures luminaries of up to 1.5 metres. Both systems are extremely easy to use and price competitive. These systems are comprised of a pre-calibrated full spectra spectrometer 360nm-830nm and a high precision goniometer giving full 360° photometric field distribution and furthermore calculate integrated CRI, colour temperature and complete luminous flux in lumens. A built-in high-speed 70K/sec sample power analyser measures voltage and current and instantly provides precise power measurements including efficiency in lumens/watt. The system comes with the "Viso Light Inspector" software that connects via USB to a computer. The user interface illustrates data in a clear and simple way and also enables for data to be "drilled down" in further detail by a simple click.
The LightSpion supports new EU regulations (EU No 1194/2012), which require directional lamps to be measured in a 90° or 120° cone and the measurements can be exported to an IES, LDT, PDF, PNG, or CVS data file providing a complete measurement solution for exporting data to technicians and lighting designers.
