The SUV series of radiometers offers users with a unique measurement solution for every aspect of the ultraviolet solar radiation spectrum. Based on the successful SUV5 total UV radiometer, three models, of which include the UVA, UVB and UVE (UV Index) have been re-engineered to include the latest detector technology, digital processing and Modbus® output.
What is Ultraviolet Radiation?
Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is a part of the sun’s light spectrum that reaches the earth and can be broken down into wavelengths that are invisible to the naked eye. The three types of UV rays include UVA, UVB and UVE, of which decrease in length but increase in intensity from A to E.
Therefore, the shorter UV wavelength increases the potential for damage to occur. Only UVA and UVB are capable of penetrating the earth’s atmosphere. The SUV-B Radiometers can measure the single wavelength of UVB.
Some features that are unique to UVB radiation include:
- Affects the outermost layer of the skin
- Accounts for most sunburns
- Strongly linked to skin cancer
- Capable of damaging DNA in skin cells
- Burns unprotected skin in as little as 15 minutes
