Fresh-Aire UV® Introduces Control Panel for Commercial UV System Monitoring, Efficacy & Safety

Fresh-Aire UV Control Panel provides automated monitoring for efficacy feedback and safety in an easy-to-install, control panel.

Fresh-Aire UV®, Jupiter, Fla., one of the world's leading manufacturers of ultraviolet (UV), gas phase carbon media air filtration and PCO air purification products, introduces the Fresh-Aire UV Control Panel, a control panel that automates the monitoring of UV-C wavelength feedback, safety and efficacy for new air handling unit (AHU) FAUV Commercial Series UV light systems.

The electro-mechanical, 16 (l) x 12 (w) x 8 (d)-inch transparent ABS plastic control box, which is compatible with most building automation systems (BAS), features a front panel hour meter that displays real-time UV lamp life. It can send an alarm when replacement lamps are needed or a default is detected. The clear-view front panel also features a red light indicating the UV system's operational status. An optional radiometer and its LED readout display separately tracks each lamp's microwatt degradation.

The Fresh-Aire UV Control Panel also incorporates an amp current sensor that sends an alarm if a lamp malfunctions. All efficacy and on/off data can be reported to a BAS.

The Fresh-Aire UV Control Panel also carries safety features such as an AHU door cut-off switch and a front-panel reset button. It also comes with a separate electrical panel box connection that houses each lamp's power supply/ballast that can be remotely located closer to the AHU's UV lamps, if needed.

The Fresh-Aire UV Control Panel is designed to work with Fresh-Aire UV's commercial APCO® Rack System, Tubular Rack System, and the Airborne Duct System, as well as other Fresh-Aire UV systems. It can also accommodate an unlimited number of lamps to simplify large systems for installing contractors and streamline maintenance and operations for building engineers and technicians.

•Â Assembled, factory-wired and made-in-the USA at Fresh-Aire UV's Jupiter, Fla. production facility;

•Â The surge-protected, weather-resistant enclosure can be mounted indoors (NEMA-1), outdoors (NEMA-3r);

•Â Available first quarter 2015;

•Â Next generation will incorporate a state-of-the-art optional programmable logic controller (PLC) compatible with all BAS systems and be available in the third quarter 2015;

Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) is a laboratory-proven, reliable method of disinfecting biological contaminants in the airflow and the internal surfaces, drain pans and evaporator coils of AHUs.
