Key features

  • RS-485 Modbus® communication
  • 5 year warranty (*)
  • Excellent linearity and directional response

An optical filter provides sensitivity to combined UVA and UVB irradiance. The photodiode generates a voltage output linearly proportional to the UV intensity. The SUV5 is not suitable for the measurement of specific parts of the UV spectrum such as UVA, UVB or UVE / UV Index. For measurement of these individual parameters our UVS Series is required.

A waterproof plug and socket cable connection facilitates easy installation. The snap-on sun shield protects the connector and allows viewing of the integrated bubble level.

The SUV5 has Modbus® interface, amplified analogue output, fast response time and temperature corrected measurement data. The wide and low power supply range from 5 to 30 VDC makes integration in meteorological and industrial application easy. The SUV5 is extremely robust and comes with 5 years warranty (*).

Thanks to standardised output and connections of every SUV5, exchanging instruments for recalibration is easy. SmartExplorer Windows™ software for data logging, display of data and Modbus® address setting is provided as standard.

(*) This product will need to be registered by the end-user within 6 months of purchase to activate the warranty extension.
