TanTest150 Complete Type-Testing of UV Tanning Appliances

  • TanTest150 compact double spectroradiometer

Representing a double-monochromator based solution with a cosine response input optic for the measurement of spectral irradiance, the TanTest150 optic is coupled to monochromator via fibre bundle for ease of measurement.

An optional configuration permits the measurement of protective eye wear transmission for users of tanning appliances.
