The PALM Probe radiometer addresses UV Measurement and Process Control in areas where it has been difficult to pass a radiometer through the process. The use of UV inks and coatings has grown in label and web markets and the PALM Probe offers safe, reliable measurement for these and other applications.
The PALM Probe has an extremely wide dynamic range allowing it to read from very low levels of UV light as in fluorescent bulbs to very high levels of UV found in powerful UV curing systems. Conditions inside a UV curing chamber are harsh. The PALM Probe is designed to withstand the harsh physical conditions of the UV curing chamber as well as protect the operator and instrument from damage or electrical shock. Potentially lethal voltages exist in UV curing systems. Although the Light Guide has been designed to reduce the risk of shock, the user should avoid contact with the high voltage areas in the UV housing. The user holds the Probe Body of the instrument and inserts the Light Guide under the UV source.
