When using UV-C lighting, the building occupant’s safety should be the priority. That’s why the Philips Dynalite UV-C control system is designed to enable operation of UV-C solutions in a safer way.
Safety First – Why Controls
While UV-C light offers significant benefits in inactivating the DNA and RNA of micro-organisms*, it must be used with care and consideration for the safety of people and animals. Direct exposure to UV-C damages skin and the retina, therefore it must only be used when people are outside of the areas irradiated by the UV-C light.
This solution includes safety mechanisms such as authorized activation, warning alerts before activating UV-C lamps, move- ment sensors and emergency stop switches to deactivate in case of potential hazards. The Philips Dynalite UV-C control system helps ensure that authorized operators can use and manage the UV-C solution in a safer way. The control system’s multiple mechanical and network safeguards are designed with safety in mind and help prevent exposure to harmful UV rays while at the same time applying the appropriate UV-C dosage.
A proper UV-C disinfection system performs the following control functions:
*Data shows that Signify’s UV-C light sources irradiating the surface of a material inoculated with SARS-CoV-2 at a UV-C dose of 5 mJ/cm2 (exposure time 6 seconds) resulted in a 99 % reduction of the SARS-CoV-2 virus present on that surface. This study determined that a UV-C dose of 22 mJ/cm2 results in a reduction of 99.9999 % of SARS-CoV-2 virus on that surface (exposure time 25 seconds). Research details and variables are available upon request.
The system utilizes a range of components that work together to enable the operation of the UV-C lighting without any people or animals occupying the irradiated space.
