Ultraviolet (UV)

Skye UV Index Sensor

This sensor has a response closely matching the ultraviolet Erythemal Action Curve, the portion of the solar radiation spectrum usually associated with sunburn and skin cancer.


  • Measures damaging ultra violet radiation, which cause skin damage and cancers
  • Indicates erythmal dose
  • Fully waterproof, suitable for long term datalogging


The UV Index measurement given by the sensor ranges form zero showing low risk of sunburn, to high risk values of 15+. This sensor is calibrated against a reference traceable to National Standards under full sunlight conditions, and so is ideal for long term datalogging on meteorological stations. It is fully waterproof and the output is compatible with a range of dataloggers and controllers. Each sensor is provided with a radiation response curve and Calibration Certificate.
