New radiometer from Intertronics
Aug 25, 2006
The new DYMAX Accu-calTM 50 Radiometer from Intertronics is ideal for monitoring UV curing processes. Unlike most radiometers which can only be used either for UV spot systems or for floods or for conveyors, the new device fits all three types of UV curing systems and is ideal for all types of industrial use - whether in R & D or production environments.
A major feature is the special design which protects the photo-sensor from the high temperatures sometimes associated with today's high intensity UV spot lamps. In addition the 12 months calibration period cuts calibration costs in half versus alternative radiometers with only a 6 month calibration period.
It is well known that to ensure complete cure of UV materials and a consistent curing process the curing light should be monitored regularly and accurately. The Accu-cal 50 simplifies this monitoring. To provide further process parameters the Accu-cal 50 measures peak intensity and dose in addition to UV intensity. The radiometer can also be used to measure UV radiation at the operator workplace to determine compliance with standard guidelines for UV exposure.
The Accu-cal 50 is simple to operate and features repeatable measurement in the UVA spectrum (320 nm - 395 nm) from 1 mW/cm2 to 40.0 W/cm2. It is compatible with all DYMAX flood lamps and DYMAX conveyors as well as the standard 3mm, 5mm and 8mm light guides used with DYMAX UV curing spot systems.
