Optional viewing cabinet
UVP Mini Chromato-Vue Viewing Cabinets provide a compact darkroom environment for viewing materials. All cabinets feature a contrast control filter that absorbs UV energy to protect the eyes. Each cabinet is designed to be used with specific UVP lamp models, which fit snugly on top of the cabinet.
UV-C's effects on the human body vary depending on length of exposure, but can cause painful burns on the skin. It can also cause temporary damage to the cornea if observed directly. Aside from these threats, UV-C is a known carcinogen for human skin. We strongly suggest using protective eyewear, face shields, and gloves when working with UV-C.
Measurement of lamp irradiance is the most effective way to monitor the useful life of any UV light source. The UVX Radiometer is useful for measuring UV intensity to ensure the desired UV dosage is being accurately applied. Useful for germicidal UV-C as well as UV curing applications.
