6D UV Safety Meter

Hand held laboratory and industrial grade instrument measuring the UV radiation hazard to eyes and skin.

The model 6D is a valuable safety tool for any industry that involves worker exposure to UV radiation. It is sensitive to ultraviolet radiation specified as hazardous in standards published by the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists. Those standards state that the total UV exposure in an eight-hour period should not exceed 3 millijoules per square centimeter at 270nm. Other wavelengths have hazardous potential related to that of 270nm by the Spectral Weighting Function (see figure available in this menu). The Safety Meter monitors the integrated effect of all ultraviolet wavelengths from the light source

Model 6D Ultraviolet Safety Meter comes as a hand held meter with self-contained detector mounted on the top panel of the meter. It is activated by a sliding ON/OFF switch. The maximum safe exposure time, in hours and 1/100 parts of an hour, is shown on the LCD. A reading of 10.00 hours indicates too weak a source to reach the Threshold Limit Value during 8 hour working day.
