    The "Technical Disinfection Technical Specifications" stipulates that the instrument is placed at a position of 1 m vertically under a 253.7 nm ultraviolet lamp. The irradiation intensity of the new ordinary 30W straight lamp is greater than 100 μW/cm2. The irradiation intensity of the ultraviolet lamp must be greater than 70μW/cm2. Different wattages of UV lamps, the country has different testing standards, 30W straight tube type is the most commonly used.

    1. The ultraviolet intensity indicator card is irradiated with the ultraviolet germicidal lamp for 1 minute. The color of the ultraviolet light sensitive color block is compared with the standard color block to determine the irradiation intensity of the light tube. The color contrast varies from person to person, especially in the case where the color of the photosensitive color block is not much different from that of the standard color block. Whether the intensity of the ultraviolet lamp is up to standard can only be qualitative, which is very difficult to quantitatively confirm.

    2. LS126C UV light meter directly displays the radiation intensity value of the germicidal lamp tube. The measurement accuracy of the instrument is ensured to meet the national metrology institute test standard.
