Monitor simplifies measuring UV lamp health


The Lextractor UV-Monitor from Lamp Express measures ultraviolet light intensity to ensure curing systems are operating properly.

The UV monitoring device provides a simplified interface instead of displaying cryptic numbers and forcing users to interpret milliwatts, millijoules and other scientific terminology to determine how healthy a UV lamp is.

Install the fibre optic coupling on the equipment, connect fibre optic to the monitor and a reading can be made.

The company recommends checking the lamp output weekly — as long as green bars appear, everything is OK.

Once orange bars appear, replacement bulbs should be ordered to ensure production continues smoothly.

The UV monitor is 138 x 75 x 28 mm (H x W x D) and compatible with UV LED, mercury vapour UV bulbs and UV xenon lamps.
