The Stinger was developed especially for the many “under-serviced” or hard-to-access A/C systems in use today, such as fan coil units, heat pumps, unit ventilators, terminal units and individual duct runs.
Stinger is ideal for critical areas too, units above ceilings, or in specialty equipment applications in hospitals, industrial plants, and pharmaceutical plants – anywhere UVC is needed in small equipment.
Specs and Certifications
Stinger employs a state-of-the-art and low voltage power system that safely and efficiently delivers 18 Watts of UV power to difficult applications. Stinger’s components are water resistant and easily serviced, and with its low voltage power source, code and safety issues are greatly reduced. Stinger is safe, simple, and just right for many of today’s applications – it’s also the most affordable and easiest to install choice available in the market.
Stinger Fixtures are factory assembled and tested. They consist of a mounting base, gasket, power supply, power socket, lamp socket, lamp, and high spectral reflector.
The Mounting Base and Gasket are constructed of reinforced high-performance plastic for structural integrity and long life equipped with an integral neoprene gasket to ensure a safe and leak-proof installation. They are mounted outside the airstream with the lamp to extending into conditioned air. Stinger’s unique, integral “water dam” prevents water incursion into, or past the fixture when the lamp is mounted vertically.
The Power Supply is a 24V, high-power factor, Class P, Sound Rated A, Type 1 outdoor type with inherent thermal and end-of-lamp-life protection. Its design maximizes lamp performance over its life in air of 1–70° C, 100% RH, and most any velocity. It incorporates a patent-pending safety “slide-lock” constrained by a convenient twist-on 24V power socket that when combined, facilitate the prevention of UV-C exposure.
The Power Socket utilizes a twist-on GU24 style connector for quick and inherently safe connections from soft-wired power or from its exclusive power transformer.
The Lamp Socket is a G24-Q4, sure-grip, snap-in style for quick, safe, and secure lamp installation and change-out.
The Lamp is a high-output, hot cathode, G24-based, 18W quad design that produces broadband 250–260nm UV-C without ozone production. It can produce its specified output at most any air velocity of from 1–70° C.
The High Spectral Reflector (optional use) is constructed of aluminum and designed to block and/or reflect 160° of radiated UV-C energy from any user-selected direction.
Independent Testing is in accordance with all known safety requirements of Underwriters Laboratories.
