A radiometer measures whether a light curing system is providing sufficient intensity levels required for successful curing processes. Radiometers provide the same monitoring control for light curing processes that a thermometer would provide for measuring temperature in thermal-curing processes.The Accu-Cal is sufficiently sensitive to measure the intensity of stray or reflected visible light (as small as 1 mW/cm2) to ensure the safety of operators and surrounding workers.
A radiometer can be used to measure the energy transmission levels of usable curing-energy wavelengths through substrates. This will ensure that sufficient energy is reaching the curable resins through substrates that absorb and attenuate needed energy.
