How to Measure UV Light Intensity? First we need to know what the UV light intensity is. An instrument that measures the intensity of ultraviolet radiation is called an UV light intensity meter, also known as an UV light meter.

UV radiation is a non-illuminating source of radiation. Ultraviolet radiation has a wavelength in the range of 10nm to 400nm. It can only propagate in the air because it has only ultraviolet radiation with a wavelength greater than 100nm. Therefore, the UV light and their applications that are usually discussed only involve UV light intensity in the range of 100nm to 400nm.

Currently widely used is mainly 230-400nm ultraviolet radiation. For research and application, scientists have divided UV radiation into UVA (315nm-400nm), UVB (280nm-315nm), and UVC (230nm-280nm). Like everything else, ultraviolet radiation can bring beneficial aspects and disadvantages to humans. Scientists have found that the effects of UV light and matter produce multiple effects and are used by people. At present, the application of UV light is very extensive, and many industries need to test UV light intensity to ensure process parameters.

If you need to measure the UV light intensity, firstly you need to know which ultraviolet band you need to measure, and then choose the UV light intensity meter according to different spectral response range.

At present, Linshang Technology's LS125 UV light intensity meter can select 9 different UV probes according to different spectral response bands. If you need to test germicidal lamps, you can choose UVC probes. If you need to measure high pressure mercury lamps, you can choose UVA probes, etc. A variety of options of UV probes can help you measure the UV light intensity more accurately.
