EIT Inc.: Palm Probe
September 10, 2003
EIT Inc.'s PALM (Production Ambient Light Measurement) Probe radiometer was granted United States Patent 6,566,656 B2 in May. This recently issued patent is in addition to United States Design Patent D 451,413 S issued for the unit on December 4, 2001. The probe allows the user to take measurements in difficult-to-reach areas of UV curing systems. UV system performance can be monitored in all UV applications, but the probe is especially useful in web and flexo applications. A non-conductive ceramic coating is applied to the outside of the Light Guide. The instrument is also isolated from the Light Guide by a non-conductive Delrin block. Both the ceramic coating and Delrin block work to protect the user against shock.
