Pulsed Xenon UV Disinfection Intense Air & Surface Technology


Rapid Pathogen1 Reduction

Inactivate pathogens by utilizing UVA, UVB, and UVC wavelengths


Modern Approach

A modern alternative to 254nm low pressure mercury lamps


Minimal Architectural Impact

The compact design of this module will not disrupt the design of a space

Pulsed Xenon Technology Overview

Pulsed Xenon UV disinfection technology is the modern approach to 254nm technology. The unobtrusive module can be installed in the ceiling for full room coverage or lower on the wall to treat hard to reach spaces. Pulsed Xenon technology utilizes a broad spectrum of UVA, UVB and UVC wavelengths delivered in intense pulses every six seconds that damage the pathogen1 beyond repair.

How Pulsed Xenon Technology Works


Pulsed Xenon Lamp

A pulsed xenon lamp is a confined arc flashlamp which produces microsecond to millisecond duration pulses of high radiant intensities capable of operating at high repetition rates. Xenon is the gas used for excitation inside the glass enclosure of the lamp.

Maintaining Safety Through Controls

PulseX is intended to be utilized in unoccupied spaces. The product includes an onboard occupancy sensor that turns the product of if motion is detected. An additional layer of control that verifies a space is unoccupied is required. A simple solution is available with nLight controls.
