Low Cost, Robust Sensors for UV Sterilization
Featured Product from Electro Optical Components, Inc.
To make this UV sensor robust, the package is metal with a quartz window. It will not degrade in long term UV exposure. An even lower cost version (GUVB-S11SD) is available in an all plastic SMD package.
The quartz window and metal package make it more robust in high energy UV applications like UV purification monitoring, water treatment and UV curing than other plastic surface mount packages (longer life).
Lower cost and smaller size versions are available for cost sensitive applications like wearable UV detectors, UV detectors in portable devices like phones and watches and other high volume cost sensitive consumer applications where measuring the UV intensity is desired.
