NEW Cancer Council UV Meters
Following the sell out success of the first generation of Cancer Council UV Meters we are pleased to advise that our new model is almost ready.
The new unit will feature automatic internet connection, simplified installation and reduced operating costs.
Our aim with this design was to achieve a solution that allows you to simply mount the unit on a wall or a pole and switch it on.
We anticipate that the new meters will be available in June 2018.
Why a UV Meter?
With the high rates of skin cancer in Western Australia, SunSmart WA is always looking for innovative and engaging ways to encourage people to protect themselves from the sun.
Many people believe that solar UV radiation is only significant when the weather is hot. The reality is that in Western Australia, the UV levels can be high enough to cause skin damage most of the year. UV meters provide a way to know when UV is high or low and when sun protection is needed each day.
Meters provide a minute by minute reading of solar UV radiation at your location. Designed with its own UV sensor, it reports the UV using the World Health Organization’s UV index, a measure of UV strength and skin damage risk.
About the meters
UV meters are designed for the outdoors, and are robust and weatherproof. The large display digits let people know the current UV level, and this simple signage indicates what sun protection is required. Our standard UV meters are single sided; the display digits are fitted to one side of the meter. However if you would like a meter installed on a pole or other free standing structure, digits can be mounted on both sides of the meter. Once installed the UV meter requires very little maintenance other than a superficial clean.
Why are UV Meters connected to the internet?
Cancer Council UV meters require internet connection. This allows Cancer Council to remotely monitor and calibrate the meters to ensure ongoing accuracy. Firmware updates can also be delivered to the meter via the net. UV meters are connected to the internet via an inbuilt modem using the mobile phone network. Meters come pre-configured with a data plan and require no customer input to connect to the net.
UV Meters in schools
Schools will find these a valuable tool to support their existing sun smart policy. Meters remove any confusion about when children need to wear their hats and apply sunscreen. Data from the meters is downloadable and useful in education programs including maths, IT and science.
UV Meters in the workplace
If you have staff who work out doors, a UV meter is an ever changing reminder of the need for them to be careful in the sun. Unlike static signs which become “invisible” after a while, the UV meter retains attention because it changes throughout the day. It creates interest and conversation about the sun.
