SOLARMETER 6.2 - UV METER

CODE: SM62


Price: 300.00  €

A Hand Held Digital UVB Radiometer with Integral Sensor

Applications :

• Lamp UVB Intensity and Aging
• Reptile Lamps and UVB Measurement
• Acrylic Shield Transmission
• Percent UVB (Divide by Model 5.7 Reading)
• Eye Wear UVB Block Comparison

Features and Benefits :

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

Sensor :

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

Meter Operation :

To operate your Solarmeter, 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. 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 Ultraviolet 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).

Lamp Aging :

• 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.
• To determine percent UVB, divide Model 6.2 (UVB) reading by Model 5.7 (UVA + UVB) reading.

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.
