Impact Multi-gas Detector with Innovative New Infra Red (IR) Replaceable Sensor

Kipp & Zonen (The Netherlands) have developed the unique UVIATOR software package.

Each Kipp & Zonen UVS radiometer is already supplied with extensive factory calibration data. This allows manual correction of the data to minimize errors. UVIATOR takes this a step further by carrying out the process automatically and providing graphical visualization of the results.

Combining UVIATOR software with the spectral characteristics of the radiometer, corrects the mismatch between the actual sensor response and the ideal sensor response. This first step enables further corrections to be made to compensate for changing conditions of the UV spectrum.

The correction methodology is based on an atmosphere transmission model and the use of the Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) satellite data that can be retrieved from the internet. This satellite gives the total Ozone column density based on position (longitude and latitude) and time (GMT).

The improved Kipp & Zonen UVS radiometers are now delivered with the UVIATOR software included as standard.
