UV-Com™ Lamp/Ballast Monitor

Monitor Multiple UV-C Fixtures

The UV-Com Lamp/Ballast Monitor combines two of our most popular supervisory solutions to ensure that lamps and ballasts are operational across multiple air handlers. The UV-Com marries our CU2™ lamp/power supply monitor and our UVRepeat™ module to merge multiple lamp/power output signals into one output for monitoring by most building automation/management systems (BAS/BMS).

Packaged in a 2- or 4- UVRepeat board option, the system can monitor 15 and 29 lamp/power supply combinations respectively. Both options provide a single point of contact for most BMS systems to remotely monitor lamp/ballast functionality.

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.
