The Q-SUN Xe-3 xenon arc chamber reproduces the damage caused by full-spectrum sunlight and rain. In a few days or weeks, the Q-SUN tester can reproduce the damage that occurs over months or years outdoors.
The Q-SUN Xe-3 tester is a full-featured lightfastness, colorfastness, and photostability chamber at a breakthrough price. It utilizes three separate xenon lamps for a large capacity. The Q-SUN Xe-3 tester’s slide out specimen tray is 451mm x 718mm and is useful for exposing large, three-dimensional parts or components. The Xe-3 tester offers standard humidity control, and optional spray, back spray and chiller features.
The Q-SUN Xe-3 is the only xenon arc tester that also has an optional dual spray capability. This allows for a second liquid such as acid rain or soap solutions, to be sprayed onto test specimens.
The Q-SUN Xe-3 is the simplest, most reliable, and easiest to use full-sized xenon arc chamber available.
A More Realistic Xenon The Q-SUN Xe-3 tester’s xenon arc lamps provide the best match to the full spectrum of sunlight. Near-horizontal specimen mounting and optional water and back spray provide the most realistic moisture simulation available in a xenon arc tester. The Xe-3 tester also is the only xenon test chamber to offer a dual spray option, allowing a second liquid (such as acid rain) to be sprayed onto test specimens. An optional chiller for low temperature applications also allows for simultaneous control of both black panel and chamber air temperature.
Easy To Use The Q-SUN Xe-3 xenon test chamber is easy to install (proper ventilation required). It is easy to use and practically maintenance-free. Specimen mounting and evaluation is fast and easy with the unique slide-out specimen tray. The Xe-3 tester is completely automated and can operate continuously, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Other features include:
Remarkably simple user interface in five user-selectable languages: English, French, Spanish, Italian or German
Built-in Ethernet connection for data logging
Comprehensive self-diagnostic warnings and service reminders
Quick and easy calibration with patented AUTOCAL system
Fast Results A product exposed outdoors to direct sunlight experiences maximum light intensity for only a few hours each day. The Q-SUN Xe-3 chamber can subject test specimens to the equivalent of noon summer sunlight for 24 hours a day, every day. Consequently, specimen degradation can be highly accelerated.
Affordable The Q-SUN Xe-3 tester’s low purchase price, low lamp prices and low operating costs create a breakthrough in the price/performance equation. Now even the smallest lab can afford xenon arc testing.
