UV Meter from Honle

The hand-held Honle UV-Meter measures exact data that is traceable to the German standard PTB (Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt). Different sensors cover wavelengths from 230 nm to 550 nm – UVC, UVB, UVA and VIS.

According to its wide range of interchangeable sensors the Honle UV-Meter is suitable for different manufacturing processes. Its compact surface sensors are only 14 mm high. For spot lamps various sensors are available.

A clearly arranged displays shows all modes of operation of this handy uv measuring unit, as well as the measured data (in mW/cm2, W/cm2 or W/m2). An intuitive operational concept by keypad, including short-cut keys for the most important functions, provide highest possible user comfort. Alternatively, measurements can be carried out by PLC control. The Honle UV-Meter offers automatic sensor recognition.

The batteries can be charged via USB and – thanks to lithium-ion technology – have a very long service life. Two-channel measuring for different wavelength ranges can be recorded at the same time.

Application Ranges: 

  • for UV / UV-LED curing of inks and coatings
  • for UV / UV-LED curing of adhesives and potting compounds
  • for surface sterilisation via UVC radiation


Documented Measurement Data

With the measured data storage it is possible to record a test series of intensity and dose. In addition, the minimum, maximum and average intensity is retained during measuring activity. The integrated real-time clock in the Honle UV-Meter ensures precise timed sampling of measured results. The measurements can be evaluated on the PC or with a PLC via USB connection.

Advantages:

  • Cost Saving – a single UV meter for all applications
  • Measuring Accuracy – the UV-Meter is traceable to PTB standards
  • Process Reliability – constant control of UV-intensity ensures a consistent quality of UV curing and -drying
  • Certificated – reliable calibration with certificate
