We are pleased that you have decided to purchase the Helios S53 UV. This high-quality device will serve you well for a long time if handled properly. The Helios S53 UV Illumination Dome is used to obtain the raw data for the creation of RTI's using software such as Authentica Creator from Truvis. This allows the reflection properties of surfaces to be measured, characterized and realistically displayed.
