The CUV5 is a general-purpose instrument for applications in meteorology, for material testing, for monitoring of lamps and for use in ageing tests in solar simulators.
- For monitoring of global UV irradiance (total UV)
- 5 year warranty (*)
- Excellent linearity and directional response
- Reliable under all weather conditions
High quality dome and diffuser give optimised directional response; an optical filter provides sensitivity to combined UV-A and UV-B as shown in the graph below. The photodiode generates a voltage output linearly proportional to the UV intensity.
The CUV5 is not suitable for the measurement of specific parts of the UV spectrum such as UV-A, UV-B, UV-E / UV-Index. For measurement of these parameters we recommend our UVS Series.
A waterproof plug and socket cable connection facilitates easy installation. The snap-on sun shield covers the connector and allows viewing of the integrated bubble level.
The screw-in drying cartridge is easy to remove and the replacement desiccant is supplied in convenient refill packets.
