ProMetric® Y Imaging Photometers

Fast, small-format Photometers optimized for display test and cosmetic inspection in production environments

ProMetric® Y is a series of high-performance imaging photometers designed for production volume testing of displays, smartphones, tablets, notebooks, keyboards, and lighting products.


The performance and appearance that consumers expect from products such as flat-panel displays, car interiors, and LED lighting are continuously advancing. Designers and manufacturers are pushed to improve the user experience. Test & Measurement instruments used in development and production must keep up with the latest technology.

The ProMetric Y photometer delivers reliable test results and analysis to improve quality and control costs:

  • Faster measurements deliver shorter cycle times
  • Objective quantification is superior to subjective human inspection
  • Faster, more accurate test analysis improves yield

ProMetric Y is built around scientific-grade CCD sensors that are thermoelectically cooled ranging in resolution from 2 to 29 megapixels. to provide accurate, repeatable 12-bit measurements. The ProMetric Y2 uses a scientific-grade 2-megapixel (1600 x 1200) CCD sensor that is thermoelectrically cooled to provide accurate, repeatable 12-bit measurements. The Y16 provides more resolution with a 16-megapixel (4896 x 3264) CCD sensor. The Y29 provides even higher resolution with a 29-megapixel (6576 x 4384) CCD sensor. The Y43 provides the highest resolution with a 43-megapixel (8040 x 5360) CCD sensor. Each ProMetric Y supports high-speed USB and Ethernet communications.
