EYE Lighting, manufacturer of lamps, luminaries and lighting products has received the 2010 Hardware Innovation of the Year Award for its weathering chamber. Automotive Testing Technology International bestowed the award. The technology behind the SUV-W151 UV test chamber is able to provide outdoor weathering test results 10 times faster than standard xenon chambers. For some materials, the EYE weathering chamber can simulate three years of weathering in just nine days, as it evaluates UV and weather durability for paint and coating materials. "We are pleased that Automotive Testing Technology International recognized our technology with this award," said Tom Salpietra, president and chief executive officer of EYE Lighting. "The automotive industry has some of the most rigorous testing standards in the world, and we believe our UV weathering chamber can be used to improve the quality of products in many other industries."
