he Klein Instruments K10-A is a fast measuring high-quality colorimeter that is compatible with both LightIllusion's LightSpace CMS and SpectraCal's CalMAN Studio. You can use the K10-A in combination with these software solutions to quickly profile and create custom calibration 3D LUTs for all CFE, CFE2, and CFE3 equipped FSI monitors.
The Klein K10-A comes standard with a handful of selectable display type offsets, but when you purchase from FSI we also program in additional model specific spectroradiometer determined offsets for the white LED backlight LCD, RGB LED LCD, CCFL backlight LCD, and OLED monitors in our lineup allowing for even greater measurement accuracy when used in combination with FSI monitors.
AN INDUSTRY ICON
The Klein K10-A has long been regarded as the industry standard in LCD calibration. It's enhanced optics give it a 3X advantage in sensitivity over the original K-10 SF. Known for it's superior speed, the K10-A can stream intensity data in 3.2 milliseconds, and can provide color data in 125 milliseconds. The Klein K10-A is also extremely sensitive and color accurate. Large photo-diodes give the probe superior performance even in extremely low light (down to 0.00006 cd/m2). Klein diodes are very large; 5mm x 5mm each, and are thermally stable and linear to report the highest degree of accuracy. The unparalleled speed and iconic design of this colorimeter have made it the most widely known Klein product.
Like all Klein colorimeters, the K10-A is ruggedly constructed with machined aluminum and high impact plastic. The K10-A’s auto ranging is solid state, and the housing is impact resistant to hold up to the 24 hours a day, 7 days a week usage that display manufacturers require. The K10-A’s compact size and light weight make transportation convenient. It is also fitted with a universal tripod mount for easy positioning and integration into workflows.
EXCEPTIONALLY ACCURATE FILTERS
For maximum accuracy, not only is the f1’ of Y critical, but the accuracy of X and Z as well. Each diode has specially layered absorption filters designed for maximum color accuracy. Klein colorimeters are also rigorously tested to ensure that each device is thermally stable with an operating temperature range of 15-35 C.
The Klein K10-A also functions as an FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) flicker meter. The probe measures and integrates Y data in the head, streams in real time to the PC, and then the FFT is performed. The Klein K10-A can measure regular flicker between 1-150Hz. Multiple methods for displaying flicker data including JEITA, VESA, and contrast methods are selectable in the software. The Klein K10-A can be used to analyze any luminance source, including the common refresh-rate flicker in monitors, and random flashes caused by the transmission of current variations through solid state devices (LEDs). All flicker information can be logged and reported with Klein Chromasurf.
