UV Irradiance and Dose Meter
UV light irradiance and exposure meter designed for measuring UV irradiance or UV dose.
- Choice of three separate, interchangeable sensor heads
- UV-A (365 nm)
- UV-B (312 nm)
- UV-C (254 nm)
- 1 m connecting cable
- UV irradiance range 0 – 250 mW/cm2
- UV dose range 0 – 99,999 mJ/cm2
- UV meter
- Choice of UV sensor head
|Sensor head||UV wavelength range||Peak UV response|
|UV-A||355 – 375 nm||365 nm|
|UV-B||280 – 320 nm||312 nm|
Connect the sensor head to the UV meter before turning on.
Turn on the UV meter using the on/off button, located on the front panel. The reading at the top of the screen should be 0.000 mW/cm2 and the revenant sensor head connected to the handset will show the peak wavelength response at the bottom of the display.
In this start screen, the UV meter can be used for irradiance (intensity) measurements in real-time. The displayed value will change with the output of the UV source being measured or as the sensor position relative to the UV source changes. This is used for measuring the irradiance of a light source at a given position or it could be used for checking the integrity of a guard system.
The second mode is for dose measurement. This is accessed by pressing the start (start/stop button).
When the start button has been pressed the reading at the top of the screen will be 0000 mW/cm2 in large digits the Eng. : 0.0000 mJ/cm2, Time
Mini 0.000 mW/cm2 and Maxi: 0.000 mW/cm2.
Even when the sensor is not exposed to UV light the time will count up, only when the sensor head is exposed to the appropriate UV source will the other units change. The mJ/cm2 will only count up as it is a function of irradiance (mW/cm2) x time (s).
The mW/cm2 will fluctuate with the sources output or measurement position. This function is used to measure the total amount of UV energy received at a given point, during a given period of time. This is often used to check process equipment such as UV disinfection conveyers.
Press hold at any time and this will “freeze” the display, but the meter will continue to measure the UV and increase the time and mJ/cm2 reading. This function can be used to manually record the reading at a certain time while the UV meter continues to sum the energy, similar to lap time function on a stopwatch.
Should the start/stop be pressed while in this second mode it will revert back to the irradiance measurement function and your data will be lost.
