Silicon Carbide (SiC) Photodiode packaged in hermetically sealed UV Glass window cap. Interference filter blocks most UVA from response as shown on the Spectral Sensitivity Graph.

Meter Operation
To operate your Solarmeter, aim the sensor window located on the top panel of the meter directly at a UV source. Press and hold the push-button switch on the face of the meter.

Battery operation voltage is viable from 9V down to 6.5V. Below 6.5V, the numbers on the LCD display will begin to dim, indicating the need for battery replacement. Under typical service load, a standard 9V battery will last approximately 2 years.

Proper Usage of Solarmeter® Ultraviolet Radiometer
• Wear eye protection when checking UV lamps (Glasses that provide wrap around protection are ideal).
• Allow lamps to warm up prior to taking readings (at least 5 minutes).
• When checking lamp aging, make sure to use the same location and distance to ensure accurate readings.
• Lamps should be replaced when output drops to about 70% of their original (new) readings.
• If you are unsure of original lamp values, replace two adjacent lamps identical new ones and compare.
• Note: The black dot on the LCD is a decimal point.

Sunbed Acrylic Testing
• When comparing different types of lamps consider readings to be relative rather than absolute.
• For acrylic testing, take readings with and without acrylic at a fixed distance. Model 6.0 is best for acrylic tests.
• SPSDs will read higher than ones peaking near 313 nm even if the total UVB output of both is the same.

• Do not subject the meter to extremes in temperature, humidity, shock or dust.
• Use a dry, soft cloth to clean the instrument. Keep sensor free of oil, dirt, etc.
