While toxic to dangerous HAI-causing pathogens, IPT UV disinfection systems are completely safe to humans, designed with automated operation and safety features that make these UV robots harmless for patients and staff.
UV Lamp Construction – Safe Amalgam Lamps
IPT’s three UV disinfection units are built using safe LP amalgam lamps that contain no liquid mercury, and less total mercury than the average overhead fluorescent bulb used throughout hospitals today.
Our UV lamps are compliant with EPA Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Potential (TCLP) testing, are considered non-hazardous waste and are safe for handling and disposal under federal law.
The IPT 3200 comes with an automated shutter system that protects UV lamps, while the IPT 2280 and IPT 1140 feature hardened, rigid steel cages for maximum durability.
UV Radiation Protection During Operation
Standard safety features keep hospital personnel and patients safe during UV-C disinfection treatments with IPT’s germ-killing robots. IPT’s systems are activated using our military grade remote control, which in combination with the Steri-Trak™ cloud-based management system, schedules, monitors and documents all UV-C disinfection treatments.
The remote control is used from outside the treatment room. Door motion devices prevent the UVC robot from operating when someone is in the room.
Capabilities of our automated devices include:
- Ability to monitor up to 4 entrances
- Auto shutdown if any alarmed door is opened
- Senses door movement
- High and low sensitivity settings
- 360⁰ Infraredmotion sensors detect human presence
- User access PIN to engage system
All of IPT’s robots can be safely operated in rooms with large windows without endangering personnel or patients because our systems only emit germicidal UVC rays, which do not penetrate glass.
