7.5kW Water-Cooled Xenon Long Life Arc Lamp and Filters Developed by Suga Exclusively for Its Weather Meters

1. 7.5kW high-rated power lamp and φ60mm outer filter keep arc wattage fluctuation and irradiance in infrared range to a minimum, and allow for approximately 2500 hours of use at 60 W/m2 (300 to 400nm).

2. The 180 mm distance between the electrodes inside the xenon lamp is designed to allow highly even distribution of irradiance to all the specimens.

3. The combination of the inner and outer filters accurately simulates the spectral irradiance distribution of both indoor and outdoor sunlight. The spectral power distribution is in total conformance with daylight filters and window glass filters specified in ISO, ASTM, SAE and JIS.

4. The Suga-developed filters for xenon lamps have a very minimal solarization, making them capable of approximately 2500 hours of use. The lamp and the filters can be replaced simultaneously (excluding certain filters).

The lamp including its electrodes is produced in-house, making the lamp and the instrument a perfect match.
