Atlas Launches New SunCal Sensor Series

A combination irradiance and Black Standard Temperature sensor

Linsengericht, - Atlas Material Testing Technology, the global leader in weathering technology and services, has designed and introduced a new series of calibration sensors to provide low-cost and precise do-it-yourself maintenance on the SUNTEST® Family of xenon instruments.

This new sensor design allows simultaneous calibration of both light and temperature. By combining two sensors into one device, users can perform two measurements at the same time under identical conditions. This provides a higher level of accuracy, and thus significantly reduces the time required to perform calibrations. In addition, tailored sensor adapters ensure the correct sensor positioning guaranteeing reliable calibration routines.

SunCal sensors are specifically designed to support do-it-yourself calibration routines of all SUNTEST models including the SUNTEST CPS+, XLS+ and XXL+ and are available as SunCal WB300-800 BST, BB300-400 BST and LUX BST.

Accurate irradiance and Black Standard Temperature (BST) control inside of a SUNTEST instrument are critical and the calibration process must be reliable and easy to perform. The new SunCal Sensor Series addresses these needs.
