Top 10 Reasons to Buy a UL Goniophotometer

September 19, 2018

We know you need more than just a piece of equipment, so we’ve arranged our business to add value to yours, beyond what other equipment suppliers do.

We invest in relationships for the long term, not for a sale. We believe that making a difference in the world starts with making our customers successful. It’s not just our equipment but our service, knowledge and commitment together that make you successful.

Below are our top ten reasons to buy a goniophotometer:

  1. Fast Delivery

UL ships most orders in just 4 to 6 weeks rather than 6 to 12 months.

  1. Robust Warranty

UL offers a comprehensive 2 year, parts and labor warranty with on-site service.

  1. UL Manufactures the Products

Some “manufacturers” actually use a third party to manufacturer the goniophotometer and lighting equipment. If you have a problem with their equipment, who do you call? Who will help? UL’s products are designed and manufactured by UL.

  1. Unmatched Global Support

UL’s service personnel are knowledgeable not only about the construction and operation intricacies of our products, but also about meeting regulatory requirements. We are committed to assisting our clients with meeting regulatory compliance to access the domestic and global markets.

  1. Technical Expertise

UL operates respected global photometric laboratories. The precise equipment used in these laboratories is our own. We manufacture and sell the lighting testing equipment we use every day in our ISO-17025 accredited facilities. Members of UL’s technical staff sit on testing procedures committees that write the standards, have participated in ISO-17025 audits and are knowledgeable about photometric testing practices and standards.

  1. Hands-on Training

UL technicians typically spend 4 days training your staff but can stay longer to ensure you are ready to test when we leave. When paired with our step-by-step manuals, UL’s goal with this training is to make your staff feel confident in the operation of the goniophotometer.

  1. After Warranty Service

UL uses widely recognized instrument brands like Yokogawa, Chroma, Sorensen, Fluke, and Elgar. How does this help?

  • Faster Repair Time - If an instrument fails it can be repaired quickly. UL works with local service centers to determine the fastest repair options.
  • Familiarity with Calibration Services - If your laboratory is pursuing ISO-17025 accreditation, local calibration is much easier.
  • In-Stock Equipment - Most instruments are in stock and typically shipped the next day.

8. Innovation & Customization

UL innovates and customizes to meet new and revised standards and special customer requirements, while always pursuing continued improvement.

  1. State-of-the-Art System and Software

UL’s software package works on a Windows 10, 64-bit computer system and is included with the goniophotometer. LSIGoniophotometer™ controls the goniophotometer and PhotometricSuite™ processes reports, allowing you the freedom to perform these activities separately without interrupting testing.

  1. Test Reports Made Simple

PhotometricSuite™ now has Word compatibility which allows you to easily create your own test reports. All the graphs and tables populate into Word easily and quickly.
