LUX METER FT3425

High Reliability LUX METER Series, Complies with DIN Class B, Compatible with LED/OLED Lighting

The FT3425 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 FT3425 provides five measurement ranges, 20 lx to 200 000 lx, to support a wide range of luminance levels, and comes built in with Bluetooth® wireless technology.

How to Conduct Lighting Inspections: Using the Extension Cart to Easily Conduct Multi-point Tests

The FT3424 and FT3425 Lux Meters are supported by the Z5023 Extension Cart, which is built with casters to vastly improve the efficiency of making multi-point light inspections. When conducting final building inspections for proper illuminance, normally two inspectors are needed, and one is often required to stand and crouch repeatedly to capture the correct data. The Z5023 significantly saves both time and effort by enabling a single technician to do the job without the physical burdens.

Key Features

  • Measured illuminance data is automatically sent to smartphone or tablet with Bluetooth® wireless technology
  • Compatible with LED/OLED 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
  • Data can be transferred to tablets and smartphones using Hioki’s dedicated free app "GENNECT Cross".

How to Conduct Lighting Inspections: Cut Work-time in Half with Bluetooth Wireless Technology

The Hioki FT3425 Lux Meter is built in with Bluetooth wireless technology, letting you pair it with the free GENNECT Cross mobile app to inspect, record, and create reports of lux data easily and efficiently, dramatically reducing work time. Gone are the issues of not having enough time to test multiple locations or creating accurate reports with a large amount of data.

Dramatically reduce illuminance testing work times!

The FT3425 features Bluetooth® wireless technology that can be used with the GENNECT Cross smartphone app to provide robust support for every stage of the illuminance testing process, including taking measurements, recording results, and creating and submitting reports. By saving measured values on a completion drawing that’s been loaded onto your smartphone or a photograph taken with the smartphone’s camera, you can dramatically reduce the amount of time it takes to perform multipoint measurements, for example during completion testing following electrical and lighting work.

Instantly create reports by a free app (GENNECT Cross)

GENNECT Cross, a free app designed specifically for use with Hioki measuring instruments, lets you check and manage measurement results and create reports.
The software provides a range of functionality that helps manage data in the field, including photographing measurement sites, placing measurement results on photographs, and saving hand written memos.

Repeated measurements are a breeze since there’s no need to squat down!

The optional Extension Cart Z5023 is equipped with casters, making it easy to move between measurement locations. The ability to move the instrument without squatting down dramatically reduces the physical burden associated with making repeated multipoint measurements.

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.

Timer settings:
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).

Support for measurement of 1 lx makes the FT3424 ideal for low-illuminance measurement

20 lx range measurement resolution 0.01 lx

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.
