The UV-12C,18C,28C,12HPC,18HPC, and 28HPC units are equipped with a circuit board to monitor the operation
of the UV lamp; it indicates the operation of the lamp through an LED indicator light mounted on the cover of the
unit. The circuit board indicates good operation of the lamp by a continuous “GREEN” color on the LED light.
After 8,320 hours of lamp operation, the circuit board indicates the elapsed time of lamp operation by a continuous
“YELLOW” color on the LED light and the internal alarm will beep every 15 minutes. After 9,000 hours of lamp
operation, the circuit board indicates the elapsed time of lamp operation by a continuous “RED” color on the LED
light and the internal alarm will beep every 5 minutes. The board also checks if the UV lamp is burned out. If the
lamp is burned out, the circuit board will indicate this by a continuous “RED” color on the LED and the internal
alarm will beep every 5 minutes.
