UV-Com™ Control Panel Monitors Multiple Ultraviolet (UV) fixtures
SANTA CLARITA, CALIF. (OCTOBER 20, 2014) — The UV-Com™ Control Panel from UV Resources provides a convenient means of monitoring multiple Ultraviolet “C” (UV-C) fixtures installed in individual air handling units (AHUs). The UV-Com easily automates the conventional means of “manually checking” that lamps and ballasts are operational and communicates this lamp status to most building automation/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 a major 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 while additionally killing pathogens on surfaces and in airstreams.

The UV-Com™ Control Panel from UV Resources automatically alerts facility managers and building engineers when ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) lamps and/or ballasts are not working properly, effectively eliminating the need for multiple manual check-ups. Each UV-Com panel monitors up to eight UV-C fixtures and multiple panels can be combined to monitor any number of fixtures necessary.
Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) has been used extensively since the mid-1990s to improve indoor air quality, cut energy consumption, boost performance and reduce maintenance. A new control panel from UV Resources, called UV-Com™, enables facility managers and building engineers to remotely monitor multiple UV-C light fixtures automatically.
Facilities that use ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) in air handling units have always required manual checks to verify operation. A new control panel from UV Resources, called UV-Com™, enables facility managers and building engineers to remotely and simultaneously monitor multiple UV-C light fixtures automatically.
