Sample Data



  • UV peak sensitivity: one volt per 204 mW/m2 at 315 nm
  • Wavelength sensitivity region, approximate: 290 to 320 nm, half-sensitivity points.
  • Dimensions: 21 cm by 2 cm diameter
  • Typical Resolution: 0.25 mW/m2
  • Time response: approximately 2 seconds to reach 95% of final reading
