Technical data and functions
Erythema effective UV radiation
The natural UV radiation oft he sun or the UV radiation of artificial sources has different effects to human skin dependant on the wavelength range.
• The long-wave UV radiation (more than 313 nm, UVA) tans the skin and supports the human immune system.
• The short-wave UV radiation (less than 313 nm, UVB/UVE) may cause irreversable damage.
In the recommendation of the CIE ( Commission Internationale de l‘Eclairage) all spectral effect functions which can have a negative effect on the human skin are summarized. This recommendation is described in the DIN 5050 resp. ISO/CIE 17166 and valuated as a directive.
UVE-measuring head FLD7 03-UVE
The measuring head records the erythema effective UV radiation. The spectral sensitivity of the measuring head complies with the standards DIN 5050 and ISO/CIE 17166 and the Ordinance on Protection against the Harmful Effects of Artificial Ultraviolet Radiation (UV-Schutz-Verordnung - UVSV, published in the Federal Law Gazette 2011 Part I No. 37). The measurement results provide direct information about medically and biologically relevant correlations in this radiation range. DIN 5050 specifies four different skin types: Skin type I to IV. The UV Protection Ordinance - UVSV extends by two further skin types: skin type V and VI. The guideline for these six skin types are taken into account in the calculation of the various parameters.
