Honeywell UV Cabin System -portable ultraviolet-c light (UVC) system that can reduce certain viruses and bacteria

The Honeywell UV Cabin System is a portable ultraviolet-c light (UVC) system that, when properly applied, reduces certain viruses and bacteria on airplane cabin surfaces.

This efficient and cost-effective system can cover an entire mid-sized airline cabin in less than 10 minutes. Roughly the size of a beverage cart, it can easily be transferred on and off the aircraft to maximize fleet efficiency. The extendable arms deliver treatments to both sides of an aisle at once, minimizing aircraft downtime between flights. 

The Honeywell UV Cabin System applies technology developed for hospital use. Medical studies have found UVC lights capable of reducing certain viruses and bacteria– including SARS CoV and MERS CoV – depending on UV dosage and proper application. No testing has been done specifically as to protection against COVID-19.

The Honeywell UV Cabin System is part of a complete suite of products aimed at helping operators better protect passengers and crew. Minimize downtime, reduce cost of ownership and help improve passenger and crew confidence with the Honeywell UV Cabin System.

UV Cabin System Treatment

The Honeywell UV Cabin System is roughly the size of an aircraft beverage cart and has UVC light arms that extend over the top of seats and sweep the cabin to treat aircraft surfaces. Properly applied, UVC lights deliver doses that medical studies find reduce various viruses and bacteria, including SARS CoV and MERS CoV. Results vary based on UV dosage and application, and no testing has been done specifically on protection against COVID-19.
Dimer and Honeywell have entered into a worldwide, exclusive license as part of a strategic partnership for Honeywell to produce, advertise and sell portable UV technology devices for use within the aerospace industry. Honeywell is currently in discussions with multiple airlines and service providers for the UV Cabin System.
UVC has been used in hospitals, air and water filters, microbiology labs, and other applications.
Most household lamps have between 500 and 700 nanometers (nm) of ultraviolet light. In comparison, UVC refers to ultraviolet light with wavelengths between 200 and 280 nm.
