The Q-SUN Xe-1 xenon arc chamber reproduces the damage caused by full-spectrum sunlight and rain. In a few days or weeks, the Q-SUN tester can reproduce the damage that occurs over months or years outdoors.

The Q-SUN Xe-1 tester is a tabletop lightfastness, colorfastness, and photostability chamber. It has a single xenon arc lamp and is available with optional water spray and chiller. Its small scale is perfect for a lab with a limited budget or only an occasional need for testing. Installation of the Xe-1 tester is simple and specimens can be conveniently mounted horizontally on its flat specimen tray.

The Q-SUN Xe-1 tester is the simplest, most reliable, and easiest to use xenon arc test chamber available.

A More Realistic Xenon
The Q-SUN Xe-1 tester’s xenon arc lamps provide the best match to the full spectrum of sunlight.  Near-horizontal specimen mounting and optional water spray provide the most realistic moisture simulation available in a compact xenon arc tester.  An optional chiller is available for low temperature applications.

Easy To Use
The Q-SUN Xe-1 xenon test chamber is easy to install - you can exhaust the Xe-1 directly into the room.  It is easy to use and practically maintenance-free.  Specimen mounting and evaluation is fast and easy with the unique slide-out specimen tray.  The Xe-1 tester is completely automated and can operate continuously, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.  Other features include:

Fast Results
A product exposed outdoors to direct sunlight experiences maximum light intensity for only a few hours each day.  The Q-SUN Xe-1 tester can subject test specimens to the equivalent of noon summer sunlight for 24 hours a day, every day.  Consequently, specimen degradation can be highly accelerated.

Affordable
The Q-SUN Xe-1 tester’s low purchase price, low lamp prices and low operating costs create a breakthrough in the price/performance equation.  Now even the smallest lab can afford xenon arc testing.
