Xenotest Alpha+

Xenotest Alpha+ is a compact stand-alone rotating rack xenon instrument with 1320cm2 exposure area. It comes serially with a complete set of parameter controls. Irradiance and temperature are measured and controlled directly on the sample level using on-rack XENOSENSIV sensor technology. Alpha+ complies with the vast majority of industry standards setting the benchmark in narrow tolerance testing. Due to its highly reliable performance, it’s often chosen by R&D departments or commercial Service Test Houses.
