In addition to simulating solar radiation, rain or humidity, some equipment can incorporate the effects of freezing into the ageing cycles.
This is the case for the CLIMATRON and the XR-35, commonly used in the fields of civil engineering, electronics, aeronautics and mass distribution.
Unlike other UV devices which can only test moderately-sized samples of parts or materials, the inside of the CLIMATRON is big enough to contain large parts in their entirety.
The DELSOL (solar radiation device), fitted with metal halide lamps, is a unique instrument. The samples are placed in a climatic chamber which is fitted with a large window, through which is shined an intense light source. Unlike other devices, it can combine very cold sample temperatures with intense exposure to sunlight.
