Electronic Control System NU-440 (Class II Type A2) NU-480 (Class II Type A2) NU-427 (Class II Type B1) NU-430 / 435 (Class II Type B2) The TOUCHLINK™ is an easy-to-use LCD touch screen which operates and displays all system functions including on/off functions for fluorescent and germicidal ultraviolet lights, blower motor, and interior outlets. Monitors high/low limits for downflow, inflow, and sliding window position. The password protected TOUCHLINK™ also contains a unique date/clock display and timer function which can be used as a laboratory timer, to set purge cycles, outlet timer, UV light timer, auto-run timer, night setback, or weekend turn-off. The TOUCHLINK™ contains diagnostic functions for a NSF trained service technician or certifier. nitecare™ – A unique system initiated by the window closure, will reduce motor/blower operational airflow to conserve energy while maintaining work zone sterility. User Interface Icons intelliflow™ – Fast, accurate, reliable, dual thermistor airflow sensors powered by TSI, Inc. manufacturer of the same sensor technology used in certification instruments designed to assure optimal airflow performance. Historical Fact: In the early 1970’s NuAire® was awarded a contract to design and manufacture the first modern day Biological Safety Cabinet to meet the U.S. National Institutes of Health Specification NIH-03-112c entitled "Laminar Flow Biological Safety Cabinet". Since that time, NuAire® has grown substantially and now manufactures a wide range of Laminar Air Flow Systems including but not limited to Class I, Class II, and Class III Biological Safety Cabinets. NuAire® has continued to expand with new systems that include CO2 Incubators, Ultra-Low Freezers, Vivarium Equipment, Barrier Isolators, Polypropylene Fume Hoods and Casework. 5 NUAIRE CLASS II BIOLOGICAL SAFETY CABINETS Experience energy savings with DC ECM Technology NuAire incorporates our existing technology and new DC ECM technology to give you the best VALUE — lower energy costs, longer filter life, and reduced noise and vibration.
