UV Germicidal Light Bulbs Eliminate Contaminants

posted in: News, Uncategorized | 0
Ultraviolet (UV) lighting technology is a proven way to eliminate many airborne and surface contaminants. Using the combination of LED UV germicidal light bulbs with a line voltage occupancy sensor, rooms can be effectively and safely disinfected.

The germicidal light eliminates contaminants using ultraviolet light.  It works well in offices and homes to reduce germs and pollutants on surfaces and in the air working similar to the sun’s rays.  (It has not been tested with the coronavirus.)


  • Made of high quality LED UVC chips. Up to 50,000 hour lifespan.
  • Available in 30-watt; 60-watt lamps with E26/E27 base; and T8 tube lamps
  • Irradiates up to 500 sq. ft.
  • Easy to install: Screw it into the E26 socket like a regular light bulb
  • 100-Volt to 277-Volt
  • Diameter 2.65″ X 7.48″ High

People, animals and plants must not be in the area when the UV light is in use.  After using the light, ventilate the room for 30-45 minutes.  The length of time needed to disinfect a room depends on its size.  Large rooms up to 500 sq. ft. will take about 60 minutes.

occupancy sensors
Occupancy sensors are available in many styles and mounting options.
Combine Occupancy Sensors with UV Lights

To prevent anyone from entering a room when a UV light is operating, it is important to install a line voltage occupancy sensor with control logic that works in reverse of typical occupancy sensing control. This unique occupancy sensor turns off the germicidal light when someone enters the room. This sensor employs a cutting edge infrared sensor to provide omni-directional sensing of an occupant’s presence and movements.

Other features include:

  • Omni-directional quad element infrared sensor
  • 120/277VAC with voltage free normally closed dry contact output
  • Accu-Set potentiometer setting TIME and LUX
  • Recess, surface, or J-box mounting available
  • Multiple changeable lens options
