UV test chamber BS-04

The UV test chamber BS-04 is large, robust equipment for the time- or dose-controlled irradiation of samples with UV light. The chamber can be fully equipped for one of the spectral regions UV-C, UV-B, or UV-A to achieve the highest irradiance. Alternately, the use of two separately controlled lamp groups for different spectral regions allows for especially flexible operation of the chamber.

The interior irradiation chamber has a base area of 86 x 64 cm and a height of 25 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-04 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 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.
