The UV-A SU-200 series sensors have a spectral range of 300 to 400 nm. The UV-I/UV-B SU-300 series sensors have a spectral range of 270 to 315 nm. The spectral responses can be seen in the graph below.
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, especially aimed at informing people of potential UV exposure and sunburn (UV Index), laboratory use with artificial light sources (e.g., germicidal lamps), and monitoring the filtering ability and stability of various materials.
Calibration factors for photon flux density units [µmol m-2 s-1], energy flux density [W m-2], and UV Index units are provided with each sensor allowing for rapid unit conversions. UV Index is a relative metric that scales linearly with the intensity of UV radiation that causes sunburn in humans, and can be converted to the aforementioned units.
Sensitive from 270 to 400 nm, spanning the solar UV-A, UV-B, and UV Index range and UV output range of electric lamps.
Apogee offers multiple analog and digital output options available for sale for UV-A, UV-B, and UV Index radiation
High Quality Cable
Pigtail-lead sensors feature an IP68, marine-grade stainless-steel cable connector approximately 30 cm from the head to simplify sensor removal for maintenance and recalibration. Cable is shielded-twisted pair wire with a TPR jacket for high water resistance, UV stability, and flexibility in cold conditions.
Warranty and Support
All Apogee products are backed by an industry-leading four year warranty and outstanding customer support.
