Safety is a top priority for us, so Arc has these redundant safety mechanisms built-in to minimize risk and ensure virtually zero exposure:
- A 30-second pre-cycle countdown gives operators plenty of time to exit the room before a UV-C cycle begins. The timer is also paired with a visual pulsing light halo at the top of the device to provide a visual warning that a cycle is about to begin.
- A cycle will not start if there is anyone present when the countdown completes. In the event someone enters the room during a cycle, four long-range 360° PIR sensors detect any motion in the room and automatically shut the device off to prevent any exposure.
- If the UV-C Arc itself moves while running a cycle, it has another sensor that will automatically shut it down (e.g. earthquake situation)
- Since Arc generates and emits data, users are able to see details of all cycle interruption events in real time.
- We have LTE chips that track, report and monitor the use of the units and monitor that the unit and the sensors work perfectly. If any of the sensors are not performing at 100%, we will immediately be notified, and proceed to repair it before it even shows signs of malfunctioning
While UV-C is not safe for human exposure, it is actually an eco-friendly disinfection solution that is safe to use around furniture, food, and electronics. [ex: you can leave a sandwich out on a table, run a UV-C cycle, and it would be perfectly safe to eat]
Unlike chemical decontamination methods (such as sprayers), germicidal UV-C leaves behind no harmful chemical residue, and spaces are immediately safe to enter following a disinfection cycle.
