NDT-Journal edition 153 technical article: 16 SECU-CHEK UV LED lights meet the manufacturer standard Airbus AITM 6-1001 (Issue 11)

UV LED lights have to meet many requirements in the industrial sector. Because since UV LED lights have been used, for example, in NDT (non-destructive testing), the UV lamps have to conform to the manufacturer’s standards so that they can be used at all.

The DGZfP (german society for NDT) regularly publishes the NDT newspaper, a publication renowned in the non-destructive materials testing industry.

But what is the DGZfP e.V. exactly? Here are a few facts:

  • DGZfP e.V. is a non-profit association
  • founded in 1933 and thus the oldest NDT society in the world
  • Editor of the NDT newspaper
  • Development of standards and guidelines (Germany-wide / worldwide)
  • Organization of the relevant specialist committees for NDT
  • Allocation of various prices / up-and-coming prices in the field of non-destructive material testing
  • Qualification / certification of personnel for NDT


In order to guarantee test results that are as reliable as possible, the processes and tools of the employees, suppliers, suppliers, etc. must meet certain NDT standards. The DGZfP and various other organizations and some of the manufacturers themselves publish these standards. This gives companies the opportunity to meet the critical criteria in the area of UV LED technology with the appropriate UV lamps.

SECU-CHEK as a highly specialized manufacturer of UV LED lights is a member of DGZfP e.V. and was mentioned in the NDT newspaper with a technical contribution when the new manufacturer standard Airbus AITM 6-1001 (Issue 11) was published.

UV-LED luminaires with the Airbus AITM 6-1001 standard in the ZfP-Zeitung No. 153RIL-CHEMIE, the technology-leading provider of UV LED lights for NDT, has already delivered 2 months after the world’s most demanding manufacturer standard for UV LED lights, the AITM 6-1001 (Issue 11) from Airbus, 10 hand lights and 6 stationary models from the SECU-CHEK UVE series, which meet this standard and are also qualified according to Rolls-Royce RRES 90061, ASTM-E 3022 and ISO 3059.

The UVE series was developed under the aviation slogan: “FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION”, which should always apply to NDT, for uncompromising, reliable and safe testing.
The floodlights of the UVE series are characterized by extremely uniform illumination, even at short working distances, as well as a very gentle radiation drop at the edge. In contrast to commercially available UV LED lights, the illumination area is much more uniform with a larger central evaluation area.

The advantages of the mercury vapor lamp and LED technology have been combined so that these lamps can be tested better, faster and just as safely as with discharge lamp-based UV lamps Test costs can be significantly reduced.
The microprocessor control, with more than 15,000 lines of software code, provides extended functions, such as the adjustable adaptation time signaling, and monitors the luminaire fully electronically. For example, the UV radiation is automatically switched off in the event of the failure of a single UV LED element or insufficient battery power.

Eight of the 16 models are equipped with the groundbreaking automatic dimming. The continuous dimming of the white light and the cross-fading between UV radiation and white light, at the push of a button, to the adjustable brightness enable an optimized evaluation without flashing the eyes.
The resulting continuous viewing of the fluorescent displays, even when using the white light, allows a safer, faster and fatigue-free evaluation and assessment without stressing the eyes.

In order to experience the high performance and robustness of the lights in practice, RIL-CHEMIE offers demonstrations on site as well as free one-week test orders.
