InterCal - Calibration
where it counts

Why InterCal’s Photometry Accreditation Is Good News for Your Business

Light meters are used in a number of industries – from photography to construction – helping users to accurately measure the level of light in a location. The measuring of light, also known as photometry, is essential for a number of reasons, such as:

  • For photographers – it directly affects the quality of their work. Knowing what lighting requirements and exposure settings are needed is essential.
  • For construction purposes – it is vital to understand how much light is present in building spaces, and whether construction adjustments or additional light sources are required.
  • For workspaces – light levels can affect the health, safety, accuracy and productivity of employees. The correct levels of light are also imperative for health and safety compliance in many work environments.

Correct calibration of light meters is imperative

To ensure the accuracy of light meters, precise calibration is of utmost importance. Over two years of development, research and construction  enabled InterCal to purpose-build a light-proof laboratory, complete with a custom-built photometry bench constructed in-house using precision custom-made parts. This is a showcase of the attention to detail we apply to all our work and has resulted in our laboratory achieving accreditation at just 2.5% of reading over the range 13 to 3200 lux.

The SANAS accreditation provides a guarantee of great accuracy in terms of light meter calibration. In turn, this accuracy offers your business a host of benefits:

  • Improved safety
  • Extended equipment lifespan
  • Cost reductions
  • Increased revenue and profitability
  • Greater compliance
