Cycle times depend on the size of a space. For example, The Arc can inactivate over 99.99% of harmful microorganisms in a 1,000 sq ft space in just 7 minutes.

Larger rooms take slightly longer, while smaller spaces (such as some hotel rooms, bathrooms, and patient rooms in hospitals) can be treated in less time, typically 3-5 minutes.

The touch time required is a brief 2 minutes per cycle, so operators can be productive while a cycle is running.

How to calculate running times for Arc:

- You walk to where you'd place Arc in a room, and with the laser, you measure the distance to the walls in 90% angles (like in the picture)

You take the farthest distance of all, and the time immediately under is the time of the cycle you'd have to run

- Arc disinfects 400 sq ft in 3 mins, 900 sq ft in 5 mins, and nearly 2,000 sq ft in 10 mins.
- The biggest this table recommends is 2,304 sq ft spaces with 11 min cycles because we reach the point of diminishing returns beyond about 12 min cycles.
- We could do a 14 min cycle time for ~3,000 sq ft, but because of the diminishing returns, you're about at the point where two 7 min cycles are better.
- Also, a room this large isn't a good use case for Arc as there would likely be shadowing affecting disinfection.
