Xenotest Beta+

  • Overview +

    The Xenotest Beta+ is a premium stand-alone rotating rack xenon instrument with 4000cm2 exposure area. It comes with a complete set of parameter controls. Irradiance and temperature are measured and controlled directly on the sample level using on-rack XENOSENSIV sensor technology. The Beta+ complies with the vast majority of industry standards. Due to its large test chamber and highly reliable performance, it‘s ideal for larger capacities or sample sizes.
