The YMT-6 Ultraviolet Irradiation Modulation System (YMT-6 UIMS) is designed to monitor solar UV-B radiation and deliver output of a bank of fluorescent sunlamps. The system uses a significant advance in technical approach which has not been previously used. The system employs a new detection/feedback system, using a true condition closed-loop feedback control system, which employs two detectors. The true-condition feedback system continuously monitors natural solar UV-B fluences and those fluences present at some point beneath a lamp bank (solar plus supplemental UV-B). The system then maintains a constant proportional supplement of UV-B beneath the lamp racks. Therefore, the YMT-UIMS will provide a realistic UV-B supplementation, which would be anticipated with a given ozone depletion, over a wide range of environmental conditions.
