RMD with UV sensor

RMD features a wide dynamic range and extremely low noise. For this purpose, the sensor already contains a multi-stage amplification, an extremely precise analog-to-digital converter and a temperature sensor. The memory contained in the sensor contains all sensor identifications and the calibration history.
Two sensors can be read out simultaneously. The measured data are clearly shown on the graphical display. E.g. for measurements of mercury low pressure lamps we recommend an UVC UVGI sensor. For measurements of the novel UVC LEDs we recommend an UVBB UVGI sensor to overcome the overlap of filter edge at 280 nm and emission at 275 nm. For measurements of far UVC KrCl* excimer lamps emitting at 222 nm we recommend a special UV sensitive sensor.

Compared to the RM-12, the RMD features a significantly higher resolution of 24 bit, an extended measuring range of up to 7 orders of magnitude and dose measurement.  The device can be powered by a rechargeable battery or mains adapter and measures for up to 100 days at a time. The RMD is upgradeable to the RMD Pro.

Use for UVC decontamination RMD & RM-22:

The RMD is the successor of the RM-22, which was successfully used in studies on disinfection.
