Atlas Material Testing Technology displays Suntest XXL+


The product is stated to be Atlas’ largest flatbed Xenon instrument that is suited for crystalline and thin film mini modules, as well as components and materials used in PV applications.

The Suntest XXL+ with its ultrasonic spray and humidity functions is also ideal for weathering testing according to the company. Relative humidity can be measured and controlled by the system.

There is a static, flat sample array with a maximum exposure area of 3,081 square centimeters. There are three air-cooled Xenon arc lamps of 1,700 watts. A microprocessor control with the latest generation fiber optic data transfer is also built-in.

A multi-color graphic display to monitor test parameters, test status and graphical progress is available along with a tiltable control panel for eased operation comfort.

The Suntest XXL+ weighs 290 kilograms, ten kilograms more than the Suntest XXL, which does not have the ultrasonic humidification and specimen spray system.
