UVC light not visible.

UVC light is not visible to the human eye so NEXNORD engineers have added a faint glow to the LEDs to show that the device is on.

Warning

UVC light can damage human tissue so when installing or servicing the Titan UVC LED air duct light, you MUST

WEAR:
  1. UVC light protective eyeglasses like these to protect you from damaging your cornea. NEXNORD will provide these to Titan UVC LED light installers and service technicians at no charge.
  2. Long sleeves shirt, pants and latex or work gloves
DO NOT:
  • Look directly at the UVC light.
