Gardco is offering two new AccuPro Series meters from Spectronics Corporation that can help measure light intensity, including for UV curing of coatings, the company says.

Made by Spectronics Corporation, the instruments can be used to measure light intensity for the UV curing of coatings; to measure the intensity of incandescent lighting; and to measure light intensity in light booths, according to Gardco.

Two Versions

The meters are available in two versions, the company says. The AccuPro (XP-2000) readout unit features a single dual-wavelength sensor detector designed to measure ultraviolet and visible light. The AccuPRO Plus (XP-4000) features a single 3-in-1 multi-purpose sensor that measures ultraviolet, visible and blue light.

Each meter is compact, lightweight and battery-operated, according to the company. Some additional features include a large LCD screen with 4-digit outranging display, a three-button interface, user-defined power-save and automatic shut off, the company says. The meters come with a padded carrying case and AC charger.

Gardco says the instruments are useful in the field, in the factory or anywhere accurate light measurements are needed.
