1-1 What’s the difference between Lighting Passport Standard version and Flagship version?

Lighting Passport Standard:
If your mobile device is iPhone 4S and later version, or Android 4.4.2 and later version, and already supports BT4.0(BLE, Bluetooth Low energy), you can choose Lighting Passport Standard version. It’s light, portable, and well worth its value.

Lighting Passport Flagship:
If you are a frequent user, Lighting Passport Flagship version can provide you best user experience with an iPod touch inside. It also can be used separately and remotely as Standard version.

1-2 Could I use the Lighting Passport to measure “Lumen"?

According to the approved standard(EX: LM-79), it needs integral sphere to measure “Lumen".There is no portable meter that can really measure “lumen"(total flux) of the luminaire. Lighting Passport can measure illuminance which is a good reference of lighting intensity.

1-3 Is Lighting Passport accurate?

First of all, Lighting Passport is a grating based meter of which optical resolution is under 8 nm, and that is better than most portable spectrolux meter.Second, there is complete calibration system including standard spectrophotometer, standard light source and so on. In our lab, we traced NIST(National Institute of Standards and Technology) criterion to calibrate every Lighting Passport before shipment.
Lighting Passport also pass the test by notary labs like National Measurement Lab of Taiwan, China, and Switzerland, the accuracy can be ensured.

“Luminosity" and “Photometry" has always been very hard for Interior Designers to grasp.

Why? This is because light can be seen but not touched.
So designers usually judge by their senses,
and so do the customers.

How can we obtain an ideal lighting environment and effects?

Cool Light or White Light?
All these are based off individual’s senses.
Now, with this Asensetek Lighting Passport,
one can understand everything about lighting.

What is the CRI?
What kind of spectrum is it?
How much illuminance is there?

All the information is in this device.
One can precisely tell their customers whether the quality of a light is good or bad.

Information regarding the CRI, λ values, and how much nanometre, can be precisely given to the customers.

What kind of values will produce white light, and how white it is, what kind of values will produce warm light, as warm as a light bulb, or as warm as a candle?

Allowing the customers to know these readings will help us designers, especially interior designers the ease the communication between the customers.

At this point, this Lighting Passport helps bridge the gap between designers and customers.

It is very to get into the LED market, it future is also very promising, hence, manufacturers worldwide has invested a lot into market.
This caused a lot of competition.
The LED’s quality and price has always been the largest challenge amongst the manufactures.

A lot of customers cannot comprehend why similar looking LEDs have such a huge price range.

It is also very hard for sales to explain them to the customers.

Now with Asensetek Lighting Passport sales will be able to easily and swiftly demonstrate to customers the differences between various products.

With these accurate readings, customers can easily understand the products.

On the other hand, Asensetek developed the “Spectrum Genius Mobile" APP allowing various developers from different fields to make use fo and develop their own ideas.

So I feel that Lighting Passport is a necessity for this very competitive LED market.
