WARNING: This product is designed for indoor installation only.
The UV-1500C is designed as a multipurpose room air purification system. The unit can be placed in a room sitting on
the floor, it can be mounted on the wall to maximize floor space or it can be mounted into a suspension (drop) ceiling.
FEATURES
1. The UV-1500C is equipped with a speed control to allow the user to adjust the airflow through the unit from 35
cfm to 100 cfm.
2. The UV-1500C has a safety shut off switch that disconnects power to the fan and the lamp if the front access
door is opened.
3. The UV-1500C is equipped with a circuit board to monitor the operation of the UV lamp; it indicates the
operation of the lamp through a LED indicator light mounted on the front access door. The circuit board
indicates good operation of the lamp by a continuous “GREEN” color on the LED light. After 8320 hrs 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 9000 hrs 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. The circuit
board will indicate this by a continuous “RED” color on the LED and the internal alarm will beep every 5
minutes.
III.
