An instrument for accurate measurement of UV-A irradiation and visible illumination. Extra engineering effort is taken to make an accurate measurement of visible light emission from a UV-A lamp by incorporating a superior band pass filter containing only non-fluorescent filters. The instrument provides fast measurement as it offers auto ranging and concurrent measuring of visible light and UV-A irradiation. It is ergonomic and easy to use due to its light weight chassis, wireless sensor unit and compact size. Apollo 1.0 is traceable to NIST (USA’s National Institute of Standards and Technology).
Sensor measurements and transmission of data is done via Bluetooth. The wireless sensor enables the user to measure from a distance of up to five meters. This feature ensures that the sensor unit is stable and no movement occurs from connecting cables during measurement. Each sensor unit has both the UV and White light sensors incorporated on it.
Apollo 1.0 comes as a single kit or as a double kit. The single kit includes one reader unit and one wireless sensor unit. A double kit includes one reader unit and two wireless sensor units. As only the sensor needs to be send for calibration, the double kit is a convenient tool so that operations are never disrupted. Please note that Aerospace companies that are audited by Nadcap must send in both the reader and the sensor when calibrating.
The meter features hold and peak functions. The Hold function stores the present value measured and the Peak button stores the highest value measured.
