RAMSEY, N.J., Sept. 17, 2013 — Konica Minolta Sensing Americas (KMSA) Inc. is now selling Instrument Systems GmbH's light measurement products in North America, the company announced.

The deal, effective Sept. 16, is a result of Konica Minolta Optics Inc.'s 2012 acquisition of the Munich-based Instrument Systems, which makes optical test and measurement instruments including spectrometers, imaging photometers and colorimeters, goniophotometers and integrating spheres.

The additional products further expand KMSA's measurement capabilities from the ultraviolet to the near-infrared, the company said.

"Konica Minolta Sensing holds leading market share in the display measurement industry. We are now able to enter new markets and expand our reach, offering customers an even broader product line in light and display industries, with a strong presence in high-end markets," said KMSA President Hal Yamazaki.

GLOSSARY
colorimeter
1. A visual instrument in which the amounts of three primary lights that match a test color when additively mixed are determined and provide a measure (the tristimulus values) of the test color. 2. A visual or photoelectric instrument for measuring color using (usually) three filters with broad spectral bands. 3. In chemistry, a color comparator used to determine the concentration of absorbing species by Beer's law.  
goniophotometer
A device used to measure directional reflectance, with light collection restricted to a narrow range of angles of which the central angle varies.
photometer
A device used to compare the luminous intensities of two sources by comparing the illuminance they produce.
spectrometer
A kind of spectrograph in which some form of detector, other than a photographic film, is used to measure the distribution of radiation in a particular wavelength region.
