It meets CIE photopic spectral response. It is fully cosine corrected for the angular incidence of light. The illuminance meter is compact, tough and easy to handle owing to its construction. The light sensitive component used in the meter is a very stable, long-life silicon photo diode and spectral response filter.


  • Light-measuring levels ranging form from: 0.01lux~0.1klux/0.01fc~0.01kfc,repeatedly.
  • High accuracy and fast response.
  • Data-hold function for holding measuring values.
  • Unit and sign display for easy reading.
  • Automatic zeroing.
  • Meter corrected for spectral relative efficiency.
  • Correction factor does not need to be manually calculated for non-standard light sources.
  • Short rise and fall times.
  • Peak-hold function for tracing the peak signal of light pulse with least duration 10μs and keep it.
  • Capable of selecting measuring mode in lux or fc scale alternatively.
  • Auto power off 30 minutes.
  • Maximum and minimum measurements.
  • Relative reading & Reset function.

Need to have this new MTP 1210 Digital Illuminance Meter calibrated? While this gauge has passed a quality control check, having a calibration certificate for light meters might be required by your quality control system. Digital Measurement Metrology (owner of is a canadian metrology company with more than 25 years of experience. Our Brampton, Ontario based calibration lab has one of the most comprehensive ISO 17025 accredited calibration scope in Canada.

Do you have an old MTP gauge to be calibrated? We might be able to calibrate MTP light meters (MTP 1210 or a different model) and provide an ISO, NIST traceable calibration certificate. Please contact our metrology lab for more info.
