Global Standard Weather Meters

The Global Standard Test is world wide authorized tests which are specified in ISO(International Organization for Standardization), ASTM(American Society for Testing and Materials), JIS(Japanese Industrial Standards) and other standards. The spectral power distribution of light sources and the performance of the instrument are specified in these standards. SUGA offers the weathering test instruments applicable to these global standard tests.

Xenon Weather Meter GX25

A compact model with excellent cost performance

This model is used for wide range of materials, such as fabrics, wrappings, and cases for cosmetics.

Xenon Weather Meter GX75

This is the world wide model

GX75 is a global general-purpose model compatible with international standard. It is a compact model with high performance with its 7.5kW Water-Cooled Xenon long life Arc lamp and filters with the Irradiance and Temperature Direct Specimen-Plane Control System.

Super Xenon Weather Meter SX75

The paramount of world standard

This model is capable of super-accelerated tests with ultraviolet irradiance three times stronger (180W/m2) than that of sunlight, meeting the expectation of today's high-speed product development.

Super Xenon Weather Meter SX75-2D

Two test chambers are set side by side. Different test conditions can be performed at the same time. Possible to combine with other type of light sources.

UV Fade Meter U48

The standard model for textile colour fastness tests

This cost-efficient model uses wicks to control humidity at below 50%rh level, and controls temperature by introducing ambient air via opening and closing of the air damper.

Metaling Vertical Weather Meter MV3000

The answer to the demand for super-acceleration

This is the world's first super-accelerated weather meter model with a vertical metal halide lamp as its light source (patented in both Japan and the U.S.). Its design where specimens rotate around a vertically placed lamp allows for more specimens to be placed than models where specimens must be fixed in a single location. This allows for improved distribution of irradiance, temperature and humidity.

UV Fade Meter U48AU

Performs tests other light sources just can't do

Suga UV Long-Life Auto Fade Meter is extensively used for colour fastness test of textile materials. An enclosed carbon arc lamp as the light source has the longest history of use among weathering test apparatus. It has an intense energy in the UV range (around 388 nm) and can be lighted continuously for 48 hours. U48AU has an automatic air control system with an air control value to mix circulating chamber-air and introduced ambient-air. It also includes a vaporizer, which allows for a highly precise control of temperature and humidity.

Flourescent Weather Meter FUV

Most effective for ultraviolet deteriorating tests for coatings and olastics

This model provides high acceleration with cyclic test of UV light and dark (dew) cycles. Its light source FS-40 includes a light enagy loss preevention system developed by Suga.

Sunshine Weather Meter S80

The basic sunshine model cultivated by history

S80 is capable of approximately 78 hours of continuous irradiation using a total of eight sunshine carbon arc rods, with four sets on both the top and the bottom of the thest chamber. It is also capable of automatically running the light and light + spray cycles.

Metaling Weather Meter / Super Xenon Weather Meter MV-SX-2D

Two independent chambers enable combination of different light sources.

Xenon Weather Meter XT750

A tabletop Xenon Fade Meter

This is a tabletop weather meter optimal for small specimens such as medical products, paper, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, food, and stationery.

Other Irradiation Instruments

Depending on the use and purpose of products and materials, other types of light sources such as fluorescent and mercury lamps are being used in various fields.

Ultraviolet Fade Meter for Glass H75

Specifically designed for ultraviolet deterioration tests of laminated glass

This is an ultraviolet fade meter with a light source of 750W mercury vapour lamp. It performs deterioration tests for laminated glass used for window of automobiles, railway, buildings and ships.

Spectral Radiation Tester SPX

Determining the fastness wavelength of a specimen via spectral radiation

Divides the xenon light (similar to sunlight) into high resolution spectrums, and radiates strong ultraviolet and visible light. It is used for determining the fastness wavelength of plastics, textiles, medical products and fluids.

FL

Accurately simulates the indoor fluorescent light

This model is used to test light fastness of digital print and other printed images, medical products, etc. Under fluorescent light from its 40 high-power 110W super fluorescent lamps. Its irradiance is constantly adjusted and tests can be performed under constant temperature and humidity.

Weather Meter Peripherals

Irradiance monitor / Pure water units /outdoor exposure device

Supports and assures the accuracy of the weather meter. Outdoor exposure test is the foundation of the data for weathering test. Everything for weathering test starts here.

Radiometer R series

Accurately measures the surface irradiance of specimens in the weather meter

Super Accelerated Weather Meters

As the speed of developing new products increases, the need for shortening the test period increases as well. By taking a variety of approaches to meet these needs, SUGA offers new Super Accelerated Weather Meters. SUGA is also proceeding with research for correlation with outdoor exposure test.

Super Xenon Weather Meter SX-H2O2

A new axis of weathering using a Hydrogen Peroxide Solution Spray Feeding Device

Weather-resistance of paint can be evaluated with acceleration factor of aprroximately 100 times or higher compared to outdoor exposure. Pure water and hydrogen peroxide solution will be mixed in the supply tank automatically to offer the same density safely and constantly.

Metaling Vertical Weather Meter MV3000

The answer to the demand for super-acceleration

This is the world's first super-accelerated weather meter model with a vertical metal halide lamp as its light source (patented in both Japan and the U.S.). Its design where specimens rotate around a vertically placed lamp allows for more specimens to be placed than models where specimens must be fixed in a single location. This allows for improved distribution of irradiance, temperature and humidity.
