Fabrizio – the Ultraviolet lamp for Art and Archaeology examination

We made Fabrizio, the Ultraviolet (UV) lamp for Technical Art and Archaeology examination. Fabrizio is the UV lamp specifically designed for cultural heritage professionals. At CHSOS we tested a number of UV lamps already on the market but none was matching our standards. Fabrizio. is packed with features we need in daily art examination for conservation and scientific research.

Fabrizio, it’s a quite common Italian male name.  Used by the Romans the name Fabricius comes from faber, which indicated somebody that could make things, such as a craftsman.
Appius Claudius Caecus used this term in his famous sentence: Homo faber suae quisque fortunae (Every man is the artifex of his destiny).
At CHSOS we are more and more enjoying making tools for art examination. So, we named our new UV lamp, Fabrizio., another advanced tool proudly assembled and crafted in the CHSOS workshop.

Features

Specifications

  • Weight: 1,5 Kg (3,3 pounds).  Size: 16 x 14 x 14,5 cm. UV LED radiation power: 14250 mW­.  Max spectral emission: 365 nm. Focusing lens angle: 60°.  Visible-Infrared noise emission: not detectable, UV pass filter cuts off violet light. Standard photographic tripod adapter: yes.

 

UV LED Technology

Fabrizio‘s core is a new UV LED emitting at 365 nm, the standard UVA spectral region used for UVF and UVR technical photography.

 

Intense UV lamp with superb high power.

Fabrizio has a stunningly strong Radiant Power of 14250 mW­ which distributes on a large surface. This is double the power of our previous lamp. Fabrizio can boost this strong power thanks to the new AlInGaN-based thin-film vertical LED chip technology. It has a grid of 10 series by 5 parallel micro LEDs for a total power consumption of 50W and 1500 mA operating at 32V.   AlInGaN-based thin-film vertical LED chip technology.

Fabrizio is much more powerful than our previous UV lamp. It can evenly irradiate a large surface.

Fabrizio delivers even and intense UV radiation over a 60 degree angle

Fabrizio delivers even and intense UV radiation over a 60-degree angle. Its radiation power is much more intense than the previous model.

High-quality pure UV output

Fabrizio mounts a special filter to cut off all the visible light and allow only suitable UV radiation for perfect UVF photos. The UV LEDs produce UV radiation but also a lot of undesired visible light.

Hand-held and standard tripod adapter

Fabrizio comes with and handle and an adapter for photographic tripods, just as a camera. How convenient! We work on scaffoldings and on-site, not just in laboratories, so we need a versatile handling of the lamp.

Fabrizio can be hand-held or attached to a standard photography tripod.

Fabrizio made at CHSOS workshop

Fabrizio is proudly crafted and assembled in the CHSOS workshop. We produce a few items and we keep production as prototype mode. This allows as to constantly improve our products.

 

FAQ

Questions received from our community.

How this UV lamp perform in comparison with standard UV tubes in terms of intensity?
It depends on what UV tubes you are using.  Fabrizio‘s radiant power is 14250 mW. You should check what is this value for your UV tubes. On the other hand, UV LEDs lamps, like Fabrizio, are preferred to former UV fluorescent tubes for a number of reasons. UV LEDs lamps are much smaller and lightweight. They are much more portable than UV fluorescent tubes. Also, the UV LEDs can be filtered eliminating any visible noise in the violet region. UV fluorescent tubes are not filtered because they are very large and filtering them would be unpractical (very costly).    A source of pure UV radiation allows documenting the actual color of the fluorescence materials without the usual blue cast due to the UV fluorescent tubes.
