SUV-B UV Radiometer

The new SUV series offers a measurement solution for every part of the ultraviolet solar radiation spectrum. The successful SUV5 total UV radiometer has been re-engineered into dedicated UVA, UVB and UVE (UV Index) models to make a range that is smarter than alternatives; thanks to the latest detector technology, digital signal processing and Modbus® output.

Kipp & Zonen’s unique UVIATOR software improves measurement results by correcting for solar angle and ozone column effects. Download the free UVIATOR software.

The difference between UVA, UVB and  UVC
What is ultraviolet radiation?
Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is part of the Sun’s light spectrum that reaches the earth. UV radiation breaks down into wavelengths that are invisible to the naked eye. There are  three  types  of  UV  rays:  UVA, UVB and UVC. They decrease in length from A to C but increase in intensity, meaning that the shorter the wavelength, the more potential for damage. Fortunately, only  UVA  and  UVB  rays  can penetrate the earth’s atmosphere. With the new SUV-A and SUV-B  you  can  measure both single wavelenghts.

UVB
