Apollo UV Sensing Technology

A large percentage of L&M's technology is deployed into ultraviolet (UV) metering devices related to UV curing and UV disinfection applications.  Whether you have consumed yogurt from a plastic cup that was UV-disinfected prior to being filled with yogurt or you work within a building with a UV disinfecting HVAC system, there  is a high likelihood that L&M's technology has been a part of your life.  Now the same technology is being deployed as part of surgical mask disinfection systems allowing masks to be safely reused multiple times as hospital staffs deal with PPE shortages in their battle against COVID-19.  As companies start to conceptualize and develop innovative systems to proactively kill pathogens with UV light, L&M, along with its ISO17025 partners, would welcome the opportunity to play a part in this important product design.

Example Sensor "Inside Look"

L&M provides a variety of sensors to meet all your UV monitoring needs.  From compact, USB sensors for simple connectivity within a tight space, to multi-sensor arrays to monitor potency at several angles to the source, to wireless IoT devices to monitor UV hazard outside your enclosure.  L&M's extensive sensor API provides over 100 commands ranging from the simple "getirradiance" to complex "captureflash" mechanisms to capture the fluence of a single pulse of light.  Whatever your needs, L&M can work with you on a cost-sensitive solution.
