Introducing AW Technology

A new light source for reflective illumination

Test lab

AW technology is the latest illumination technology for reflective illumination in a test lab. Our R&D department began developing an AW (Adaptive White) light source after it became clear that fluorescent tubes were becoming increasingly difficult to find. AW technology offers many advantages, such as:

  • Adjustable brightness and color temperature (CCT)
  • Excellent illumination uniformity
  • 25 pre-defined configurable presets
  • CRI > 90 and ≥ 95 versions
  • Horizontal and vertical user interface versions
  • Superior power distribution vs. fluorescent tubes

While AW technology does not offer as many possibilities as iQ-LED technology, it provides an advanced alternative compared to fluorescent tubes. You can now select different correlated color temperatures (CCT) instead of a single color temperature with fluorescent tubes. It is an excellent option for new test labs.

Currently, we are offering AW technology in our lightSTUDIO and iQ-Flatlight product lines.

A new reflective light source for test target illumination


The iQ-Flatlight-AW is a standalone light source that will expand the iQ-Flatlight series using variable correlated color temperatures (CCT). It will also replace the pervious iQ-Flatlights that only used fluorescent tubes. Using AW technology, this version will be set with vertical orientation and is available with CRI > 90 or CRI ≥ 95. The iQ-Flatlight-AW offers a perfect light source for test labs looking for a solution for reflective chart illumination.

The latest light source in the lightSTUDIO product line


The lightSTUDIO-AW replaces the previous lightSTUDIO-S versions that used fluorescent lighting, and it will be available with CRI > 90 or CRI ≥ 95. It also has a twin functionality that allows you to insert a dividing wall to split the test scene into a side-by-side comparison under two separate light spectrums. The iQ-Flatlight-AW is ideal for test labs wanting to evaluate real scenes.
