UV Radiometer & Calibration Kit
Radiometry is an essential link for measuring the light output from a UV curing system in order to maintain a repeatable process.
Depending of the requirement within the manufacturing process, two new kits are available to calibrate the light output in
irradiance (W/cm2) or total power (W). By combining the OmniCure® LS100 (irradiance) or LS100P (power) sensor with the OmniCure
Beam Position Kit (019-00131R), complete solutions are available for calibration with unmatched control and repeatability without the need
of additional hardware.
||Calibration Kit – Irradiance
||Calibration Kit – Power
- Consistent measurements by accurately positioning the beam on the detector sensor
- Reduction in calibration time and cost with its easy to use alignment and setup
- Elimination of the need for expensive and bulky alignment tools
Designed to ensure accurate measurements while reducing set-up time and costs.
The ability to accurately measure and calibrate light intensity in UV LED spot curing is challenging for the UV assembly manufacturer
and is a critical piece to controlling a UV curing process. Focused UV LED light sources with LED at the tip of the head are accompanied by
individual lenses in order to accommodate the various spot sizes and high irradiance requirements at the cure site. The need for a
measuring system is essential for measuring peak irradiance by capturing the narrow beam at the center of the detecting sensor with the
exact focal height. By combining an accurate radiometer with a precise alignment fixture, the user is able to accurately and consistently
measure the peak irradiance on every measurement in an assembly manufacturing environment.
The beam positioning kit consists of an XY stage and a metal block. The detector is positioned in the XY stage which is precisely
aligned using the stage screws to center the beam on the detecting sensor aperture; the metal block sets the exact offset height in order
to capture the focal point of the beam. This allows quick and accurate measurement of the peak irradiance without altering the curing
setup; saving time and increasing productivity.
