Useful to measure both peak Irradiance and Ultraviolet dose in a single step.
Peak irradiance is the maximum energy value, for example at the focal point of the reflector.
Dose is the amount of energy radiated in a specific exposure time, during which the instrument is exposed.
The measurement is calculated at the end of the exposure, so when the instrument is stopped it returns the values of peak Irradiance (mW / cm2 or W / cm2) and dose (in mJoule / cm2 or Joule / cm2). Some versions also allow to detect the temperature.
The value can be viewed on the LCD display. It is used by passing it through the area where UV radiation occurs.
UV integrators instruments are available in many versions to measure different parts of the Ultraviolet spectrum separately such as: UV-C 230 – 280nm, UV-B 280 – 315nm, UV-A 315 – 410nm, UV Diazo 350 – 460nm, UV-LED 380 – 420nm, UV-V 395 – 445nm or Full UV 230 – 410nm spectrum.
The UV integrator is composed by a single unit of different sizes and shapes, on one side a sensor acquires the values then on the other the LCD display shows the measured values. Some models can store the samples on an SD card, allowing their management via PC software.
