Consistent electrical draw by a UV curing system is essential to maintaining peak UV lamp performance. With reliable electrical service, UV curing lamps will perform with greater predictability to deliver more consistent, repeatable results. CON-TROL-CURE®'s LAMP VOLTAGE INTERFACE (LVI), a fully compatible volt measurement device, monitors this draw and can be installed into any CON-TROL-CURE® or 3rd party UV curing system.
The LVI integrates parallel to your curing equipment's power supply and irradiator to provide continuous feedback of voltage level during operation. When interfaced with a high impedance panel-mount volt meter, the LVI provides a numerical power reading of lamp energy draw. The operator can use this numerical value to determine when a lamp stabilizes and is ready for use. This numerical value is critical in establishing an initial baseline after installing a new lamp.
