How does it work?
Ultraviolet light in the germicidal wavelength (185-280 nano-meters) renders the organisms sterile. When organisms can no longer reproduce, they die. Our solution kills the bacteria on both your hands and the device simultaneously.
How hot do the LED's get?
Germicidal UVC LED lamps do not produce much heat - about the same as normal LED’s.
Should i clean my device?
Yes - depending on the surrounding environment, UVC lamps should be checked periodically (approximately every three months) and can be cleaned with a dry cotton cloth or paper towel.
What is UV-C?
Ultraviolet (UV) light is a component of the electromagnetic spectrum that falls in the region between visible light and X-Rays. This invisible radiation includes the wavelength range of 100 nm to 400 nm. UV light can be further subdivided and categorized into four separate regions:
How long does The Arc last?
The Arc will last for up to 3 years with regular use. We provide a comprehensive maintenance package for all of our products that provides replacement parts in the event of defective models.
What are the benefits of UVC LED's?
UVC LEDs are compact, durable and well suited to battery powered operation for point-of-care tools and mobile healthcare equipment. These devices quickly and reliably provide low to high level disinfection on a range of semi and non-critical patient care equipment. Proven maintenance free germicidal performance against spore forming bacteria. Compact and portable product designs. Consistent, effective and trackable hygiene compliance
What are the 4 Categories of UV Light?
100 nm to 200 nm Far UV or vacuum UV (these wavelengths only propagate in a vacuum)
200 nm to 280 nm UVC – useful for disinfection and sensing
280 nm to 315 nm UVB – useful for curing, tanning and medical applications
315 nm to 400 nm UVA (or “near UV”) – useful for printing, curing, lithography, sensing and medical applications
