An Alpha by any other name would work even better

Shakespeare might not have been impressed, but plastics processors will be when they find that this weather testing equipment manufacturer has added more comfort and flexibility features to its Xenotest Alpha and renamed it Alpha+. Equipped with a convenient touchscreen display, weathering testing can be programmed and performed by a touch of a button. Actual test state and graphic progress of test parameters can be read off the full-color display. It has simplified menu driven programming with 10 free programmable tests as well as up to 10 additional pre-programmed standard tests. The rotating Xenosensiv sensor measures irradiance and black standard temperature at the same level in accordance with ISO/DIN standards while a stationary sensor measures the test chamber temperature and relative humidity.
