Light levels and light quality are important for all aspects of life including humans & animals.
The Lux sensor has been designed with a spectral response which matches the Photopic curve, ie the part of the wavelength spectrum that the human eye is sensitive to. Light falling within this response curve is measured in Lux units. The levels of light available within this Photopic curve area is crucial to the well-being of humans & animals.
Exposure to UVA & UVB light is a normal part of being outside. However damage to the ozone layer & excessive exposure are having damaging effects. UV light is also thought to be important to insects. Our UV sensors are used in these studies. They use highly specified components and are calibrated against a reference sensor which is traceable to National Standards.
We also have meters & loggers to complete the system.
