Combined UV-a/luxmeter

Hello all, would appreciate if anyone can recommend a combined UV-A/luxmeter that is reliable and robust. We do penetrant line inspection to ASTM E1417, measuring LED UV-A per ASTM E3022. Kind regards, Ger.

Hello ger,

The Labino meter works great, the only issue is that you need to send it out to calibration as this meter use a software for calibration, it is wireless and you get both intensities at the same time on the same sensor, the DLM-1000 from Gould-Bass is also good but you need to replace the sensor to get the intensities.
here is the links for the MFG.

Don't use the Apollo unless you can do without it when you have to send it to the only "authorised" calibration centre in Sweden (two more coming in France and Spain)
Their customer service stinks too.
Be warned

Further to this - our calibration engineer tried to calibrate it and it was reading 37% low - this is after 3 months initial manufacturer's calibration - they are rubbish and their customer service stinks - STAY WELL AWAY FROM THESE ITEMS OF EQUIPMENT - You have been warned
