The Solarmeter® 6.5 will revolutionise the way you look at UV lighting! Especially over the UVA & UVB wavelength (280-400nm). This product has risen to the top of its respective market for its build quality, accuracy and affordability. This UVI meter allows you to accurately measure the UVA & UVB levels allowing you to get a true perspective on the total light in your reptiles enclosure. It is important to note if you research your reptiles natural habitat in order to simulate it you will easily be able to find a 'UV Index' (UVI) information for 12 months of the year. This is due to the UV Index being of key importance to human skin care. Reptile enthusiasts and breeders can expect to see savings within 12 to 18 month if used efficiently, but this is not only a product for breeders, you can also make huge savings as a single reptile owner.

Safe Usage of Ultra Violet Meters

  • Wear eye protection when checking UV lamps (UV-block wraparound glasses).
  • Allow lamps to warm-up prior to taking readings (at least 5 min). 
  • When checking ageing of lamps, keep measuring distance and locations constant. 
  • Lamps should be replaced when output drops 30% to about 70% of their original (new) readings. Take an overall reading at exposure distance, or check individual lamps close to the surface. Keep track of hours vs. readings on a chart.
  • If unsure of what original new values were, replace lamp(s) with new ones of the same kind and compare to old ones. 
  • To determine percent UVB divide Model 6.2 reading by Model 5.7 total UV (UVA + B) reading.
  • When checking UVT acrylic transmission, take reading through acrylic; then remove acrylic and hold meter sensor at approximately the same distance from the lamp as the acrylic shield was located. If acrylic blocks much UVB it should be replaced. 
  • When using this meter to compare different type lamps, due to their different spectral power distributions, the readings should be considered relative rather than absolute. Although higher output lamps of similar SPD's will generally read higher than lower output lamps, ones that peak near 290-300 nm (as does the meter response) will read higher than ones peaking near 313 nm even if the total UVB output of both is the same. 
  • Do not subject the meter to extremes in temperature, humidity, shock or dust. 
  • Use a dry, soft cloth to clean the instrument. Keep sensor free of oil, dirt, etc. 


Q. What is the purpose of Model 6.5 outdoor UV index (UVI), and does it relate to indoor UV lamps?

A. The primary usage of UVI meter Model 6.5 is to monitor outdoor erythemal UVR, as defined by the EPA/NWS/NOAA/WMO. It is very useful for Sunwise School programs, and vacationers interested in UV intensity readings, to help prevent sunburn.It can also measure UVI from tanning lamps.
