Can a UV Flood Light be made available with a VIS-blocking filter?
Can this be made available with a VIS-blocking filter per your UV flashlight?
We do have a new UV flood light model at 50 watts with the Blackout filter that is used on our flashlight.
Does the filter have an IR leak? (As do the Wratten 18A and the equivalents)?
We do believe that the filter does allow IR to pass through.
Therefore, depending on the sensitivity of your equipment, incorporating an additional IR filter may be required.
We would imagine, however, that the infrared produced by the UV LED would be limited to the thermal radiation component only (as the LED chip itself heats up), as all of the radiometric output would be confined to the UV-A band.
