Applications of SOLARMETER 6.0 :

• Lamp UVB Intensity and Aging
• Window Film/Tint Transmission
• Percent UVB (Divide by Model 5.0 Reading)
• Acrylic Shield Transmission
• Eye Wear UV Block Comparison

Features and Benefits of SOLARMETER 6.0 :

• Hand Held Integral Sensor
• Accurate Calibration
• NIST Traceable
• Compact and Durable
• LCD Readout

Sensor :

Silicon Carbide (SiC) Photodiode packaged in hermetically sealed UV Glass window cap. Interference filter blocks most UVA from response as shown on Spectral Sensitivity Graph.

Meter Operation :

Aim the sensor window located on the top panel of the meter directly at a UV source.

Press and hold the push-button switch on the face of the meter. Note the reading on the LCD. For best results take note of the distance the reading was taken from the UV source in order to ensure repeatable results.

Battery operation voltage is viable from 9V down to 6.5V. Below 6.5V the numbers on the LCD display will begin to dim indicating the need for battery replacement. Under typical service load a standard 9V battery will last around 2 years.

Proper Usage of Solarmeter® UVB Radiometer :

• Wear eye protection when checking UV lamps (Glasses that provide wrap around protection are ideal).
• Allow lamps to warm-up prior to taking readings (at least 5 minutes).
• When checking lamp aging, make sure to use the same location and distance to ensure accurate readings.
• Lamps should be replaced when output drops to about 70% of their original (new) readings.
• If you are unsure of original lamp values, replace two adjacent lamps identical new ones and compare.
• To determine percent UVB, divide Model 6.0 (UVB) eading by Model 5.0 (UVA + UVB) reading.

Acrylic Testing :

• For acrylic testing, take readings with and without acrylic at a fixed distance. Model 6.0 is best for acrylic tests.
• When comparing different types of lamps consider readings to be relative rather than absolute.
• Do not subject the meter to extremes in temperature, humidity, shock or dust.
• Use a dry, soft cloth to clean the instrument. Keep sensor free of oil, dirt, etc.
• SPSD’s will read higher than ones peaking near 313nm even if the total UVB output of both is the same.
• Do not subject the meter to extremes in temperature, humidity, shock or dust.
• Use a very soft cloth to clean the instrument. Keep sensor free of oil, dirt, etc.
• Note: The black dot on the LCD is a decimal point.

Model 6.0 : UVB Radiometer

Virtuavia is the French Distributor for Solarmeter. Solarmeter® is Solar Light Company Inc.'s brand of specialty hand-held light meters. We are the industry leader in the design and manufacture of UV and Visible Light radiometers for measuring lamp irradiance vs aging, as well as other related applications serving the indoor tanning industry, window film tint measurement, outdoor UV Index measurement, UV curing, reptile and sterilization lamp measurement, red/blue light phototherapy, LED measurement, and photovoltaic (PV) solar irradiance metrology. These meters provide long term accurate measurements for both low and high intensity lamp systems, in order to enable output and aging determination. They also measure solar irradiance. Solar Light Company, Inc. is recognized worldwide for over 50 years as America's premier manufacturer of precision ultraviolet light sources, solar simulators, and radiometers. Our standard line of UV, visible, and IR radiometers and light meters measure laboratory, industrial, environmental, and health related light levels with NIST traceable accuracy. Column ozone, aerosol, and water vapor thickness measurements, in addition to long-term global ultraviolet radiation studies all over the world are performed using our atmospheric line of instrumentation. Solar Light also provides NIST traceable spectroradiometric analyses, calibrations for light meters and light sources, OEM instrumentation and monitors, and accelerated ultraviolet radiation degradation testing of materials.
