Product Spotlight: OL 458-4

When dealing with elite technology, like integrated spheres, there’s no reason to look beyond the top-of-the-line products offered by our team at Gooch & Housego. And the

OL 458-4 white LED-based integrated sphere may be exactly what you’re looking for.

Our finest materials went into a product capable of consistent stable temperatures and continuous spectrum use across the visible array. Not only that, but the OL 458-4 is a flexible unit, and we have the capability to alter the design and facility depending on the job needed.

Its cutting-edge nature can be viewed from many angles. But raw numbers often do it justice:

  • Sphere coating >98%
  • Uniformity ±0.1%
  • Calibration luminance: 380 to 780 nm (not covering the OL 458-4 U)
  • Color temperature: 5030 K

Size and usability come in to play as well, with the OL 458-4 weighing in at a diminutive three pounds. It’s a power unit and an optics head, meaning users can activate both remotely and align precisely. Proprietary Optolon 2 material coats the sphere, which creates a next-level diffuse reflection.

Useful in either a static laboratory or field work, the sphere was designed to be tough and durable (unlike many exacting but fragile testing modules). Additional features include a USB connection, LED-based source, an internal feature to track usage, consistent currents via a 48 volts DC, and built-in application software.

The Life Sciences & Instrumentation Division of Gooch and Housego was established to eliminate a void that existed in the area of optical radiation standards, calibration services, and measurement instrumentation for industry, government/military, and academia. We are dedicated to helping you and your organization by providing products that have been tested against traceable calibration standards.
