        Proper Usage of Solar meter ® Ultraviolet Radiometer for Lamp Aging Tests

        • Wear eye protection when checking UV lamps (UV-block wrap around glasses).

        • Allow lamps to warm-up prior to taking readings (at least 5 min).

        • When checking aging 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 overall reading at exposure distance, or check individual lamps close to surface. Keep track of hours vs. readings on a chart
