SAKMA has developed ARMS (Area Radiation Measuring System), a monitoring and inspection system of UV-C energy, which ensures and verifies that the disinfection of spaces with UV-C radiation is carried out correctly.
In the current situation, private companies, residences, shopping malls or public institutions want to offer maximum security and provide spaces free of microorganisms.
This requires a constant, safe and effective disinfection system.
The International Ultraviolet Association, founded in 1990, supports the use of Ultraviolet-C radiation for the inactivation of microorganisms or pathogens such as SARS-CoV-2, damaging their structure so that they cannot replicate in contact with our cells.
The use of ultraviolet radiation is very effective, but misuse can be harmful to health.
Safety is essential and several factors must be considered: Inspect that there is no one in the room, measure the space to be disinfected, the power and radiation time.
So, how do we make sure it's done correctly?
SAKMA has developed ARMS (Area Radiation Measuring System), a monitoring and inspection system of UV-C energy, which ensures and verifies that the disinfection of spaces is carried out correctly.
Placing sensors strategically, a special software allows you to monitor and record all processes taking place: emitted radiation, received radiation, working time, interaction between luminaires, alarms and notifications to the maintenance department.
All equipment (sensors, luminaires and gateway) communicate using standard DALI protocol. Therefore, ARMS system is compatible with other existing luminaires.
The instantaneous potency data received by the sensors and the accumulated energy are recorded and stored on a central unit (CORE), available for subsequent review and treatment.
The system software analyses the data and responds by modifying the radiation time period of the UV-C fixture, ensuring that the cumulative energy recorded by the sensors matches the program designed to provide proper disinfection of the surrounding area, and confirming its success.
The ARMS system integrates seamlessly with ONE and DUO UV-C.
ONE and DUO UV-C are state-of-the-art in-line suspended and surface lighting fixtures that include a germicidal light tube (ultraviolet type C 253,7nm) for disinfecting spaces.
