The UVB sensor is an ultraviolet light sensor, which primarily responds to UVB radiation (approx. 220 to 320 nm). The UVB sensor is built around a UV sensitive photodiode. The diode produces a current proportional to the UV intensity. The signal from the diode is amplified through a transimpedance amplifier and sent to the output.
Examples of experiments
• Measure the UV intensity as a function of time throughout the day.
• Measure the UV transmittance of various sunglasses and regular glasses.
• Measure the UV transmittance of fabrics, both wet and dry.
The UVB sensor can be directly connected to analog BT inputs of the CMA interfaces.
Technical specifications of the sensor are described in its User's guide
