International Light Announces New European Calibration Lab

Peabody, MA — September 5, 2023 — International Light | Part of Ocean Insight

In an effort to better serve its customers in Europe, Middle East, and Africa, International Light today announced the opening of an ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Accredited calibration facility outside Stuttgart, Germany.  “We are pleased to announce that our customers in the EMEA region will now have the ability to calibrate their light measurement instruments without the time and expense of sending them to our facility in the United States,” said Robert Harrison, VP and General Manager of Ocean Insight’s International Light division.


    International Light’s new state-of-the-art facility will offer calibration capabilities for a broad range of light measurement devices including lux meters, light meters, spectrometers and spectroradiometers for ultraviolet (UV), visible (VIS), and infrared (IR), and correlated color temperature (CCT) measurements. 

    “In addition to calibrating our own branded meters, International Light also offers calibrations on a wide range of lux meters and light measurement systems from other manufacturers,” continued Harrison.  “We believe this facility will expand our reach to new customers in the European market, knowing they can be confident their devices can be serviced locally,” concluded Harrison.  The calibration facility, located in Ostfildern, is expected to be fully operational in early October.

All calibrations performed by International Light come with ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Accredited and NIST traceable calibration certificate.

Customers can get more information on what calibrations are available, and request calibration services on International Light’s website.
