Meter Operation :
To operate your Solarmeter, aim the sensor window located on the top panel of the meter directly at a light source.
Press and hold the push-button switch on the face of the meter. For best results take note of the distance the reading was taken from the source in order to ensure repeatable results.
Battery operation voltage is viable from 9V down to 6.5V. Below 6.5V the numbers on the LCD display will begin to dim indicating the need for battery replacement. Under typical service load a standard 9V battery will last around 2 years.
Proper Usage of Solarmeter® Blue Light Radiometer :
• Wear actinic eye protection when checking intense light sources.
• Allow lights to warm-up prior to taking readings (at least 5 min).
• For individual light intensity, hold meter close to LED or lamp.
• For effective light intensity, hold meter at working distance from the light source.
• When checking aging of lights, keep measuring distance and locations constant.
• Lights should be replaced when output drops to about 70% of their original (new) readings.
• If unsure of what new values were, replace an adjacent light with a new identical one and compare the two.
• Do not subject the meter to extremes in temperature, humidity, shock or dust.
• Use a dry, soft cloth to clean the intrument. Keep sensor free of oil, dirt, etc.
