The UV-1260 COLOR COMPORT RADI0METER AND DOSIMETER is a self-contained, high quality UV measuring instrument.


+ Choice of a combination of two different spectral ranges:
+ UV-A intensity mW/cm2 + UV-V dose mJ/cm2
+ UV-B intensity mW/cm2 + UV-V dose mJ/cm2
+ UV-C intensity mW/cm2 + UV-A dose mJ/cm2
+ UV-V intensity mW/cm2 + UV-V dose mJ/cm2
+ Temperature measuring °C/°F
+ Big COLOR graphic display
+ Numerical and graphical display
+ Permanent or „triggered“ measuring mode*
+ USB ComPort and PC evaluation software

It is designed to measure and record UV intensity, UV dosage and temperature in the UV curing
process. Measuring results are indicated both, graphically and numerically on a big COLOR display.
It is equipped with two different UV sensors for the individual measuring of a combination of either:

UV-A 315 – 410 nm
UV-B 280 – 315 nm
UV-C 230 – 280 nm
UV-V 395 – 445 nm
UV - 230 – 410 nm

With these two different UV-bands many of the measuring requirements of UV curing applications can be covered.
Due to its two different UV sensors and the integrated microprocessor the UV-1260 COLOR Radiometer +
Dosimeter can measure, record and display the peak of the UV-intensity (mW/cm2) for each UV-band
individually plus the peak of total UV energy.

Additionally, this instrument is calculating the UV-dosage (mJ/cm2) of the UV energy supplied during the time
of exposure of one measuring cycle. The UV-dosage is calculated for each UV-band (UV-A, UV-B and UV-C or
UV-V) individually and as total Integral of UV-dosage over all three UV-bands. This allows to determine not
only the total energy, but also how that energy is delivered, i.e., what intensity and dose at what UV-band.
With an extra sensor for measuring temperatures from 0 to 230° F / 0 to 110° C.

*This instrument features a selectable „triggered mode“, i.e. the 30 sec recording cycle starts within a 120
second readiness phase not before the incident UV-intensity exceeds 2 mW/cm². The three sensors are on the back of the unit which also serves as a heat shield. After completion of the measuring cycle the measuring results are instantly displayed numerically and graphically auto-scaled on the built in 45 x 34 mm (1.75” x 1.3”) TFT COLOR display. A special AUTO-OFF feature that turns off the unit automatically after one minute serves as energy saving and extension of the battery service life.

The UV-1260 Color ComPort Radiometer + Dosimeter comes with a SD Memory card used to store data replaces the USB comport. The measuring data is stored directly to the inserted SD card and a circumstancial data transfer to a PC is not necesary after each measuring cycle. The evaluation software has been modified and is more user-friendly compared to earlier versions.
The following versions are available:

COLOR ComPort Radiometer + Dosimeter UV-A + UV-V
COLOR ComPort Radiometer + Dosimeter UV-A + UV-B
COLOR ComPort Radiometer + Dosimeter UV + UV-A
COLOR ComPort Radiometer + Dosimeter UV + UV-B
COLOR ComPort Radiometer + Dosimeter UV + UV-V
COLOR ComPort Radiometer + Dosimeter UV-B + UV-V
COLOR ComPort Radiometer + Dosimeter UV-C + UV-V

While on the conveyer belt, the UV-1260 COLOR ComPort Radiometer + Dosimeter can withstand max.
230° F / 110° C for up to 10 seconds. The temperature of the housing should not exceed 113° F / 45° C.
Because of uneven radiation distribution of the UV light source and different type of construction of the
measuring devices by different manufacturers, different readings may appear under the same
measurement conditions.

In order to keep its full function and precision it is recommended to have re-calibration done once per
year. Re-calibration will also be necessary after change of battery. PTB traceable calibration acc. to DIN
EN ISO / IEC 17025 with certificate
