Light Meter with Broad Coverage from Low to High Illuminance
LUX METER FT3424
Model No. (Order Code)
The FT3424 is a light meter designed for an extensive range of applications involving illumination equipment, lighting work and facility management. Capable of testing even LED lighting, the FT3424 provides five measurement ranges, 20 lx to 200,000 lx, to support a wide range of luminance levels.
• Compatible with LED lighting
• Complies with DIN 5032-7:1985 class B and JIS C 1609-1:2006
general AA class
• Timer hold function lets you make measurements in remote
locations while avoiding the effects of shadows and reflections
• Save up to 99 measured values in the instrument’s internal memory and transfer them to a computer later for improved work efficiency
How to Use the Hioki Lux Meter FT3424
Basic introduction to using a Hioki lux meter
Introduces how to use Hioki's FT3424 lux Meter, from zero-adjustment and the hold function to making measurements. Since the instrument’s memory function lets it store measured values, there’s no need to take notes by hand in the field. In addition, a timer hold function and connection cable make it possible to measure illuminance after moving away from the instrument.
Measure illuminance free of the effects of shadows
1. Timer hold function
Retain the measured value after a user-configured amount of time has
elapsed from the time the TIMER key is pressed. In this way, you can time
measurement to occur after you have moved away from the lux meter so that
measurement is not affected by clothing, shadows, etc.
Select from 5 / 10 / 15 / 20 / 30 / 45 / 60 sec.
After the set time has elapsed, the measured value is retained. → The backlight turns on and the beep sounds for 3 sec.
2. Measurement with sensor and display units undocked
You can undock the display and sensor units for more convenient use. Simply connect them with the Connection Cable L9820 (option).
Memory function makes multipoint measurement a breeze
1.Memory function (up to 99 values)
Save measured values for multiple measurement locations in the instrument’s
internal memory on the spot for later display at your convenience.
There’s no need to take time to jot down a reading on paper for each measurement.
2.Data communications functionality
Transfer data saved in the instrument’s internal memory to a computer via a
USB connection. Data can be saved as a text file.
