Light Intensity (Lux)

Typically used for indoor light levels, although some sensors can measure outdoor or underwater levels.

Skye Lux or Photopic Sensor

The response curve of this sensor matches the CIE Photopic curve (a standard for human eye response to light) and measures in Lux units. This is the preferred sensor for human and animal studies.

The following sensors measure light intensity. Please click the Related Pages links for more information.

  • The 765 & 775 handheld meters are designed specifcally for museums, galleries and archives. They combine light intensity with other parameters of interest including UV, temperature and humidity
  • The HOBO U12 and Pendant Dataloggers are suitable for recording light levels over time. data can be downloaded to a computer and monitored against temperature and humidity readings.
  • The Skye Lux sensor is designed to be used with a customised datalogging system that may be measuring multiple parameters. Sensors are suitable for outdoor. daytime, or nightime light levels.
