Features and benefits:
• Operate well in a variety of sources (from natural sunlight to fluorescent)
• Automatic adjustments based on environment analysis
• Light sensitivity and response curve configured with the human eye in mind
• Stable over specific temperature ranges
Where might I use one?
• Touch panels
• Audio visual equipment
• Home appliances
