They contain specifications about the average and minimum illuminance to be maintained, as well as the resulting uniformity of the lighting. GOSSEN has developed a special grid measurement function (GRID) for this purpose and implemented it in the MAVOMASTER, the universal basic device of the new light measurement system. When the measuring function is activated, the current measured value of the grid point is accepted at the push of a button, Emin / Emax / Eavg / U0 / UD of the measurement series is automatically calculated and made available for retrieval. This means that the workplace lighting can already be assessed during the measurement. When the measurement function is ended, all measured values and the values calculated from them can be saved in CSV format and are available for creating an acceptance report.

The MAVOLUX 5032 B kit contains the MAVOMASTER and the MAVOPROBE 5032 B with very high resolution and accuracy. This means that the user is ideally equipped to check the illuminance in accordance with the standards and rules listed above.
