The 174 Lux Meter with memory for up to 16,000 readings is used for measuring light in industry, agriculture, and research. The Lux Meter is also used for determining illumination in the workplace, shop window displays, and by designers. It meets with all international standards within the category for Lux Meters.

The Lux Meter displays measurement results in lux and FootCandle. Please consider that 1 FC is equal to 10.70 lux. The device automatically detects the peak value, when this value is retained for a minimum 10 µs. Thanks to the possibility of selecting the measurement range, the 174 Lux Meter converts into a high precision instrument that is easy to use. The Lux Meter can also be used by inexperienced personnel. Of course, when light is being measured, the ambient conditions must be taken into consideration. As such, the distance must be fixed and the angle between the Lux Meter and the object being measured to obtain result of the highest repeatability.
