100-6490 UV Sensor with 3' (0.9m) cable

100-6490 UV Sensor with 3' (0.9m) cable
Weight: 1 lbs
Measures the sunburning portion of the UV spectrum. Allows you to display UV index, dose rate, and daily and accumulated dose.
Price: $375.00
Product Details

This precision, patented UV sensor measures the sunburning portion of the UV spectrum. It detects ultraviolet (UV) radiation at wavelengths of 290 to 390 nanometers. The spectral response is closely matched to the Erythema Action Spectrum, defined by McKinlay and Diffey (1987) and internationally recognized as the radiation that is most responsible for causing redness of the human skin.

Allows you to display UV index, dose rate, and daily and accumulated dose.

Compatible with Vantage Pro2. (Already included with Vantage Pro2 Plus.)

You may also need a Solar Sensor (100-6450) and Sensor Mounting Shelf (100-6673).
