    I'm currently looking at putting together a device to measure UVA & UVB protection in a pair of sunglasses at home but the sensors I can find only register 280-390nm.

    Will this be a large enough range? Should I keep looking for a sensor that registers 280-400nm?

    As I said, the main purpose is testing whether a pair of sunglasses will be safe to wear in normal conditions.
