The monitor measures exposure to the sun's UV radiation, displays the UV Index, a measure of UV intensity, and sounds an alarm when the total exposure in a 24-hour period may exceed recommended limits. APA Optics, based in Blaine, Minn., makes products for fiber optic communications, including dense wavelength division multiplexing components and gallium nitride compound semiconductor-based UV detectors, instruments and consumer products.   . . .   NEC Corp. and SVA Co.
