The Hato Galli-Luxmeter

14 November 2013 | Int. Livestockhousing Guide |

The Hato Galli-Luxmeter is a measuring instrument developed for lighting technicians and monitoring authorities. It measures light according to the higher spectral sensitivity of birds. Birds use their vision mainly for exploration and orientation. Compared to human vision, birds have a higher spectral sensitivity. Especially at low wavelengths (blue to ultra-violet light), the light sensitivity of birds is higher. As a consequent, birds perceive light brighter.

These facts are especially important with the today’s new light sources. The conventional bulbs emit light mainly in the red to infrared range, the peak of the spectrum for the LED lights however, is more in the blue range. Regular lux meters do not give information that correspond to the vision sensitivity of the poultry. With the Hato Galli-Luxmeter, you now can accurately measure and define the correct light levels. It contributes to lighting the houses corresponding to the animal welfare requirements.
