UV Resources has upgraded its RLM Xtreme fixtureless ultraviolet (UV-C) lamp system to include its new 24-volt Contact Controller. The prewired controller streamlines UV-C system installation, cutting time by up to 50 percent and improving safety.
The new UL 1995-compliant safety controller puts facilities almost three years ahead of the November 2019 deadline that requires all HVAC access points to automatically de-energize the UV-C system when opened.
Prior to the prewired system, contractors would have to individually install and wire each access point via conduit. The prewired controller offers HVAC contractors a plug-and-play system, which regulates up to six safety interlock switches/access doors, reducing this labor-intensive procedure.
About the RLM Xtreme
According to Jones, the RLM Xtreme fixtureless UV-C lamp system delivers ultraviolet energy to irradiate coils and destroy mold, bacteria and microbes in high-volume HVAC environments. This UV-C system is designed to help improve air quality, while creating an energy-efficient HVAC system that does not need to waste energy to distribute conditioned air to the space.
The Xtreme lamp system combines UV-C components in a design that’s configurable to fit into most any plenum. Ideal for both new and retrofit applications, Xtreme lamps eliminate the need for rows of metal and glass fixturing.
Xtreme provides for scissor-like overlapping of lamps to eliminate the need for specifying and sizing multiples of fixtures and lamps. The system can be installed in most positions to generate 360-degree UV-C irradiation to where energy is needed the most. Its LampClamp allows UV lamps to slip-in and click in place most anywhere, so that they overlap one another. By eliminating the need for multiple lamp lengths, the clamp system provides for usable energy to maximize performance, even in demanding commercial and institutional HVAC applications.
Xtreme was designed with safety in mind. Xtreme lamps resist moisture/water damage, and the EncapsuLamp (FEP lamp coating) technology protects the system, the space and the installer from lamp residues, such as gas, mercury and glass, should an accidental lamp break occur.
