Put the light cure tip in the center over the detector window read the useful curing power in mw/cm2
-Used to test the curing power of dental curing light etc.
-Interpreting your results:
-Under 300: indicates low output -300-500: test composite to determine curing time -500-800: use recommended curing time -Over 800: high output-reduce curing time appropriately -Measures useful curing energy up to 3000 mW/cm2 -Detects light from 400-500 nanometers
curing intensity light cured feature:
power intensity meter for composite curing light interpretation of power intensity readings over 300 mw normal output follow composite manufacturer's recommended curing time 200 to 300mw increased curing time will be required to achieve full polymerization below 200 mw output will not provide sufficient energy for normal polymerization depth.
