The 6D Meter is sensitive to ultraviolet radiation specified as hazardous in standards published by the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists, making it an invaluable tool for workplace safety compliance.
Glenside, PA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/25/2017 --Today, Solar Light Company, Inc. announced the introduction of its new 6D UV Safety Meter. The 6D is a valuable tool for any industry that involves worker exposure to UV radiation. It is sensitive to ultraviolet radiation specified as hazardous in standards published by the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists. Those standards state that the total UV exposure in an eight-hour period should not exceed 3 millijoules per square centimeter at 270nm. Other wavelengths have hazardous potential related to that of 270nm by the Spectral Weighting Function (see product data sheet for details.) The 6D Safety Meter monitors the integrated effect of all ultraviolet wavelengths from the light source. It has a self-contained sensor mounted on the top panel of the meter. It is activated by a sliding ON/OFF switch. The maximum safe exposure time in hours and 1/100 parts of an hour is shown on the LCD. A reading of 10.00 hours indicates a source too weak to reach the Threshold Limit Value during 8 hour working day.
"The 6D UV Safety Meter is a critical tool for all workplace Safety Officers to carry. It ensures that workers are kept at safe levels and alerts users when they are approaching dangerous exposure levels," said Moshe K. Levy, Vice President of Marketing for Solar Light Company, Inc.
