PMA-Series Sensors

Solar Light’s NIST-Traceable PMA-Series Sensors represent the pinnacle of accuracy, durability, and selection on the market today. Our sensors measure discrete bands of the electromagnetic spectrum from the UVA, UVB, UVA+B, UVC, Visible Light, and Infrared regions. Both narrow and broad bands are available, to fit any application.

Specialty sensors are also available, including UVC sensors used in sterilization and germicidal applications, environmental probes, and sensors for biologically weighted spectra (such as the erythema and CIE action spectra.) In addition, our visible light sensors detect the entire visible light spectrum, accurately measuring photopic and scotopic energy. Such measurements enable lighting engineers to specify the optimum light level for human comfort, eliminate excess lighting, and ultimately save energy.

Over 135 different sensors are available in a variety of packages to fit any environment, from indoor clean rooms to harsh locations outdoors to 100 meters under water. If you do not find what you need from our standard selection, please contact us – custom sensors are our forte!

Please note that Solar Light offers both Digital Sensors and Analog Sensors in the PMA-Series lineup. Select the Digital Sensors if you prefer to plug into our PMA-Series Radiometers to read the output of the sensor on the meter’s display. Digital models are typically used as discrete sensors that are portable and located to provide short term information. By contrast, Analog Sensors are a better choice if you don’t need a digital display output of the reading, if you will be connecting to your own datalogger, or if you plan to use a voltage source to provide excitation voltage to the sensor and a digital volt or amp meter to read and convert the results. Analog Sensors are typically used as process sensors that are permanently installed to provide ongoing information.
