Photometers, Light Meters, Solar Light Products & More
Solar Light Company was founded in 1967, and has grown into a world class supplier of precision products for such markets as photovoltaic research and application, materials testing, meteorology, laboratory light measurement and sun protection testing. Our products are manufactured in Glenside, PA, and are sold calibrated to relevant traceable standards, such as NIST, ASTM and ISO.
Our Solar Simulators have the flexibility to produce a range of output spectra for UV, visible and full solar Air Mass by combining different mirrors and filters. We are also able to produce a AAA solar spectrum as defined by ASTM. The 16S range is designed with a small beam output up to 2.25" and a range of spectra. LS1000 offers larger irradiation areas up to 8" x 8". The unique Model 601 Multiport® is dedicated to SPF testing, capable of carrying out 6 tests simultaneously.
Solar Light Company's radiometers, PMA2100 and PMA2200, can be used with any of the 135 standard and custom sensors available to measure UVC, UVB, UVA, visible and near Infra Red wavelengths. They have a unique patented feature that enables automatic recognition of the sensors calibration factors and offsets, which means any PMA sensor can be used with any PMA meter at any time. No need to keep meter and sensor sets together, you can mix and match any combination for the job in hand.
Meteorological products include Microtops® Ozone and Sun photometers, enabling fast, accurate measurements of a number of atmospheric parameters such as Ozone column, Aerosol Optical Thickness, Direct Solar Irradiance and Water Vapor Column. All this from a handheld, portable device, which is used extensively by NASA in their Aeronet program as well as many other National and International government laboratories. Our Model 501 UV Biometer and UVA Radiometer are used by many International Research bodies involved in monitoring long term UV measurements from solar radiation at the Earth's surface.
Our Calibration Laboratory enables all of our products to be calibrated to relevant standards on site, immediately before shipping. We also offer an annual calibration service for products in the field.
We carry out Materials Testing Programs for various materials and to a range of standards. Please call for details.
