Arc Test Chambers simulate the long-term effects of environmental conditions, like rain or sunshine, in only weeks or even days. Manufacturers rely on these chambers to study how a specific environment, weather, and aging can affect their products. In today’s market, most arc test chambers use xenon for testing, although some devices still use carbon for testing purposes. A single xenon arc lamp will act as the light source, simulating direct exposure to the sun, and ultraviolet radiation.
Arc test chambers also offer humidity and temperature control to better simulate the everyday changes in outdoor conditions. Optional additions like optical filters, chillers, and water sprays allow for further control of the environment.
ATEC offers arc test chamber rentals to help test and improve the quality and longevity of products for various conditions.
