Sheen Instruments' SOLARmaster

Interchangeable filters are used with the xenon lamp to simulate the samples end-use environment. Temperatures are controlled to simulate the material degradation effects of infrared radiation. SOLARmaster's closed-loop irradiance sensor control system ensures continuous irradiance measurement and control, and its parabolic reflector chamber with the xenon lamp in focus enables uniform irradiation, according to Sheen.
