Atlas Material Testing Technology LLC, the Chicago-based supplier of accelerated weathering-testing services, introduced an improved control system for its Ci4000 xenon-arc Weather-Ometer.
The controller now sports a full-color touch screen with intuitive, easy-to-use icons. Atlas also beefed up the Ci4000 internally, replacing the earlier programmable logic controller with an embedded control system. A digital network replaces analog control circuits. The company also significantly increased memory.
Atlas also announced the release of its CS-7 lamp-cooling system on its Weather-Ometers, an upgrade to its CS-6. The CS-7 offers substantial water savings by replacing the double-coil system on the CS-6 with a high-efficient heat exchanger.
The company also is touting the Suntest XXL, a large, flat-array instrument for testing weathering. Sunlight is simulated by using special, long-arc xenon lamps that simulate natural sunlight.
