UV Resources: UV Control Panel
The UV-Com™ Control Panel from UV Resources provides a convenient means of monitoring multiple UV-C fixtures installed in individual air-handling units (AHUs). The UV-Com automates the conventional means of manually checking lamps and ballasts, communicating lamp status to most building automation system/building management systems (BAS/BMS). A single UV-Com control panel can simultaneously monitor up to eight separate UV-C fixtures. Multiple UV-Com panels can be linked together in a daisy-chain sequence in order to monitor as many individual UV-C fixtures as necessary. The product is made up of two sub components, the CU2™ and the UVRepeat™. Together, they provide the monitoring of each individual lamp/ballast combination by providing an on-off signal to the facility BAS/BMS. If either a lamp and/or ballast cease to function, the facility engineer is alerted, eliminating the need for individual unit monitoring and providing labor savings for applications with multiple AHUs. The UV-C wavelength is known to reliably provide cleaner, healthier air by preventing microbial buildup in cooling coils and draining pans and duct surfaces. It cleans coils, drain pans, and other surfaces by killing pathogens on surfaces and in airstreams.
