LED light meter measures power and irradiance from UV LED light source

Lumen Dynamics has developed an LED light meter, aptly named the OmniCure LED light meter, which measures power and irradiance from a UV LED light source, directly at the cure site. The meter is calibrated at 10-nm intervals, from 320 to 700 nm. This provides the ability to select the specific wavelength from a UV LED light source to obtain accurate measurements which are traceable to NIST.

The OmniCure LED light meter is ergonomically designed with a slim profile sensor that fits in a fixture or confined space for adaptability to various assembly manufacturing environments. With its peak hold function, the meter can easily measure narrow beam patterns over a broad dynamic range offering flexibility to measure from many available UV LED light sources.

Engineered with a single sensor to measure peak irradiance and a unique calibration process for measuring multiple discrete wavelengths, the meter can capture the narrow spectral distribution of an LED source for consistent and accurate measurements. Lumen Dynamics offers a handy “cost saving calculator” on its web site that illustrates the cost savings to medical device manufacturers who take advantage of the closed-loop feedback on the company’s S2000 curing system. This technology is also detailed in a webinar.
