Sensitive from 250 to 400 nm, spanning the solar UV range and UV output range of electric lamps.
Calibration factors for photon flux density units [µmol m-2 s-1] and energy flux density [W m-2] are provided with each sensor allowing for rapid unit conversions.
Analog and digital output options are available. Analog version is an un-amplified voltage output. Digital outputs include USB and hand-held meter. Digital "smart" USB sensor uses USB communication and custom software to interface directly to a computer. Hand-held meter has a digital readout and is available with a sensor integrated into the top of the meter or attached via cable.
Rugged, Self-cleaning Housing
The patented domed shaped sensor head facilitates runoff of dew and rain, helping to keep the detector clean and minimizing errors caused by dust blocking the radiation path. Sensors are housed in a rugged anodized aluminum body and electronics are fully potted.
Applications include: UV radiation measurement in outdoor environments (sensor is not recommended for long-term continuous outdoor deployment), laboratory use with artificial light sources (e.g., germicidal lamps), and monitoring the filtering ability and stability of various materials.
Warranty and Support
All Apogee products are backed by an industry-leading four year warranty and outstanding customer support.
