An UV power puck (UV Energy Meter) is an uv light measurement equipment used to test the energy value of an ultraviolet light source. At present, the prices of various UV power puck existing in the world are very different. UV power puck price has a certain relationship with the R&D design cost and the price level of each country.
In many industries, ultraviolet light is now used in order to ensure the stability of the production process, these industries need to use an UV power puck to measure the energy value or power value of the ultraviolet light source for a certain period of time. Most of the UV power pucks on the market can only be used to test the energy generated by the ultraviolet light source within a certain period of time, only a few UV power puck (UV Energy Meter) can also test the power of ultraviolet light.
At present, several brands of famous UV power puck (UV Energy Meter) are EIT UV Power Puck ii, Kuhnast UV radiometer and UV design UV radiometer, Linshang LS120 UV Energy Meter and LS128 UV Energy meters. Their prices vary from each other’s, The EIT UV Power Puck ii price is approximately $3,500 and Linshang UV energy meter price is $442 which is much lower. Of course, this price difference is mainly due to price levels and product development costs in different countries.
The UV Power Puck ii can test the UV energy and intensity of the four bands. EIT’s standard bandwidths - UVA (320-390nm), UVB (280-320nm), UVC (250-260nm), UVV (395-445nm). This is the biggest feature of the UV Power Puck ii, so the price is relatively expensive(About US$3,500). Of course, for the curing industry, only the UVA band is really needed to measure, and the other three bands are not necessary. If the customer feels that the UV Power Puck ii price is a little expensive, the UV Energy Meter can be considerate.
At present, there are mainly two kinds of ultraviolet light sources for curing industry, namely high-pressure mercury lamp and LED lamp. Compared with high-pressure mercury lamp the LED has just arisen and is progressively replacing it. But most UV energy meters are still designed for the wide spectrum range of high-pressure mercury lamp, while Linshang technology has launched two kinds of UV energy meters, which are respectively for high-pressure mercury lamp and UV LED light source.
The spectral response range of LS120 UV energy meter is 315-400nm, mainly used to measure high-pressure mercury lamp, it can display the UV power, energy, power curve and temperature curve.
The spectral response range of LS128 UV power puck is 340-420nm, mainly used to measure UV LED (365nm, 385nm, 395nm, 405nm, etc.), it can display the UV power, energy, power curve and temperature curve.
This is the latest UV energy meter for high-pressure mercury lamp, the spectral response range is 315-400nm, it can measure the UV power, energy and power curve.
The spectral response range is 340-420nm, mainly used to measure UV LED (365nm, 385nm, 395nm, 405nm, etc.), it can display the UV power, energy and power curve.
These two UV energy meters are produced in the United States and =China. The standards used in the two instruments are not the same. Therefore, in the test, it is more important to consider the data consistency of the instrument's multiple measurements rather than the consistency of data between different brands.
