360° Field-of-View UV-C Detector

The low drift solid-state ROD-360-UV18 Detector has been developed by Gigahertz-Optik specifically for the measurement of effective ultraviolet germicidal irradiance (UVGI) applied in air and water sterilization applications employing low and medium pressure Hg or pulsed Xenon lamps. Since it receives impinging UV signal over a full 360°, more like the subject target of irradiation, it provides a better gauge of UV dose or fluence than the standard planar detector.

In its threaded post mount holder (vertical or horizontal orientation) the rod probe measures 113 mm long by 15 mm in diameter with a 6.5 mm x 5.0 mm dia. sensing zone with a 2-meter long cable. Its waterproof stainless steel and quartz construction enable underwater use and is easily cleaned.

In combination with a Gigahertz-Optik single or multi-channel optometer solar blind UV-C irradiance from 0.01 μW/cm² to 25 W/cm² over 220 to 280 nm spectral range can be measured and monitored.
