The “Ug-Meter” pocket measuring system is used for fast determination of the Ug value of installed IG units.
The methodology of the procedure is based on different temperature measurements. With calculation software the Ug value is determined from the recorded measured values. For example, with supplemental software, correlations of UG value and heating requirement can be displayed.
Naturally the system cannot replace the laboratory analysis procedure used. The ambient influences on the installed object alone exclude accuracy claims that can be made under laboratory conditions. However you do get a measurement result with good informative value.
In the development of the Ug-Meter, the sales aid for insulated glass was the focus.
