Monarch Instrument provides critical speed measurement for Honeywell UV Cabin System


Designed for disinfection of passenger aircraft

Honeywell Aerospace just released its new UV Cabin System to help airlines cope with the ever increasing need to ensure traveling passengers that it is safe to fly during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Germicidal Ultraviolet light technology has been around for years. These germ-killing lights are commonly used in hospitals and food processing facilities however, with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March, interest in this technology to help slow the spread of the disease, has grown tremendously. Ultraviolet light, specifically the UV-C wavelength, has been scientifically proven to destroy the structure of the SARS-CoV-2 virus rendering it incapable of replicating.

Honeywell’s UV Cabin System, which looks much like futuristic drink cart with wings, is said to effectively disinfect an entire aircraft cabin in 10 minutes or less giving airline companies a quick and cost effective method to add an additional layer of sanitization to their cleaning regimen. An operator stands behind a protective shield while guiding the UV Cabin System down the aisle of the aircraft. UVC light fixtures are attached to the sides of the system and light wings extend out over the seats in order to expose all contact surfaces within the aircraft’s cabin to a sufficient “dose” of UV light. Since the UV Cabin system is continuously moving, it is critical that the speed of the machine be monitored in order to ensure that the surfaces exposed to UV receive a high enough dose to destroy any unwanted pathogens. Monarch Instrument’s ACT-3X panel tachometers and ROS Remote Optical Sensors are used to provide this highly accurate and critical speed measurement.
