Irradiation chamber BS-03

The BS-03 is a medium-sized, rugged irradiation chamber for time- or dose-controlled irradiation of samples with UVA, UVB, or UVC. The chamber can be fully equipped for one of the spectral ranges UVC, UVB, or UVA to achieve the highest irradiance. Alternately, the use of two separately controlled lamp groups for different spectral ranges allows for especially flexible operation of the chamber.

The interior irradiation chamber has a base area of 68 x 49 cm² and a height of 32 cm. The sliding sample carrier facilitates loading and unloading. With a load of up to 20 kg, this can withstand all demands. The sample chamber operating temperature is about 25°C so that thermal damage to the specimen is avoided. Due to the high uniformity of the irradiation, the samples may be positioned in any order.

For the BS-03 we offer two irradiation controllers, the UV-MAT and the UV-MAT Touch. Both irradiation controllers can control two spectral ranges separately and achieves a consistent dose regardless of lamp aging, contamination or temperature. The dose is measured with calibrated sensors. For this purpose, the sensor already contains an extremely precise analog-digital converter and a temperature sensor.

The memory in the sensor contains all sensor identifications and the calibration history.

The UV-MAT Touch user interface is a high-resolution capacitive touchscreen. A powerful Cortex ARM processor ensures durability and updateability. This means that new functions can be installed directly on site.  The UV-MAT Touch and the PC software are Windows 10/11 compatible.
Numerical and graphical single and multi-channel irradiations, oscillograms and the settings are clearly displayed. The parameterization is done intuitively directly on the UV-MAT Touch and is password protected.

The UV-MAT Touch also records the irradiations and can be controlled by the PC. This makes multi-stage irradiations and the documentation of the irradiation possible.

Applications of UV irradiation chamber

  • Irradiation of bacteria and cell cultures
  • Photostability testing
  • UV and daylight materials testing
  • UV curing, sealing, and bonding
