EIT PowerMAP UV Radiometer - Light Intensity Meter
The UV PowerMAP measures UV irradiance, radiant energy density and temperature. The UV PowerMAP simultaneously provides information for four spectral regions (EIT UVA, UVB, UVC, and UVV).
EIT's UV PowerMAP is an advanced profiling system that measures temperature information derived from their optics and thermocouple probes in UV curing processes. The information is transferred to a PC where it is presented in a graph and data format for viewing, analysis manipulation and comparison. The information is characteristic of the same energy and irradiance that would be impinged on an actual work piece passing through the curing process.Features:
- User adjustable sampling rates from 128 to 2048 samples/second. The faster sample rates ensure high resolution and repeatability even at higher process speeds.
- Easy to use PowerView™ software program that displays collected data in graphical and tubular forms. The PowerView™ software allows the user to also compare two different files.
- Detachable Optics Head that allows the use of different optics heads with a single Data Collection Unit- (UDC). This feature minimizes downtime during re-calibration and allows a single UDC to use low and high power optics heads.
- Collection and storage of up to one million data points for accurate UV and temperature mapping in your system.
- Offset optics allow easy measurement at conveyor edge
- Type J thermocouple records temperatures from 0-500 degrees Celsius
- Low, narrow profile to allow access to most curing applications
- Rugged aluminum chassis and stainless steel case
- Provides user selectable instrument default modes for data analysis and comparison, screen, and operational settings.
- Document, measure and maintain the performance of an individual UV System or entire manufacturing line from start to finish.
- Document, measure, confirm, and maintain the spatial geometry and original design specifications of your UV System. Easily evaluate lap-bulb configuration and focus, reflector shape and focus reflector efficiency.
- Compare reflector materials and shapes, wavelength-specific degradation, and uniformity of one or more UV lamps.
- Easily identify the type of bulb in the system. Compare spectral output, degradation, and uniformity of one or more UV lamps.
- Measure and document substrate temperatures during the cure process to prevent damage to temperature-sensitive materials.
- Track and store data for statistical quality control regulation compliance or historical comparisons.
- Print run data to attach to work orders, reports, or quality audits.
- Archive measurement data to track system performance over time.
The PowerView™ is a windows based LabView program written at EIT to work with the UV PowerMAP. PowerView™ has evolved as the Windows platform has changed.
The data collected with the radiometers is transferred through the serial port of the computer to the PowerView™ program. The data is available for viewing on the computer screen. Included with the data is information on the collection instruments as well as a time/date stamp. The user can ass several lines of information to the PowerView™ file. This allows process, equipment and formulation variables to be stored with the file which is especially useful when running trials or doing R&D work. The information collected can be saved and accessed later for comparison to another file. The date and files can be analyzed, manipulated, customized, printed, emailed and even exported into a spreadsheet program if needed.
The PowerView™ shows the status of a curing system in a clear, easy to read format. The user can see which lamps and reflectors in a system are well focused and performing most efficiently. PowerView's™ ability to compare t
