CL series climatic test cabinets with solar simulation

CTS climatic test cabinets for ideal age determination testing

These climatic test cabinets with solar simulation have been developed for age determination tests in line with common test standards such as DIN 75220.

In these tests, components can be exposed to combined stress factors such as temperature, climatic conditions, sunlight and options such as rain.

In this process, factors such as weather resistance, colour fastness or product lifetime can be determined at high speed.

Test space volume in litres:

350 / 600 / 1000 / 1500 / 3300

Humidity ranges:

10-95% r.h.

Temperature ranges:

-40°C / +180°C
