Xenon UV Light

The Xenex is a xenon uV light device for automated disinfection of healthcare facilities. The room disinfection system is designed to destroy viruses, bacteria and bacterial spores without contact or chemicals. The portable system can disinfect as many as 30 rooms per day. A pulsed xenon uV lamp delivers a germicidal dose of uV light, while the Xenex Smart Lamp system uses reflectors and movement to focus uV light toward “high-touch” surfaces. An on-board database logs system activity for utilization tracking analysis, and a visible light filter blocks the bright xenon pulse in rooms with interior glass. Safety features include a motion detection system and door guard.
