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.
About the manufacturer
Skye is an employee owned company that has been manufacturing research grade systems and sensors for plant science and commercial horticulture since 1983.
The Company started on the Isle of Skye, Scotland and re-located to Wales in 1986. They manufacture a range of specialist light sensors and plant analysis systems. All Skye light sensors are directly traceable to NPL - Calibration Standards Body of the UK. They have a range of excellent specialised radiation sensors that measure in the specific wavelengths and with a range of outputs. In addition to their standard sensors, they are able to make custom sensors for specialised applications and growth chambers.
