Tru-D SmartUVC, a PDI Healthcare environment of care solution, has launched its latest intelligent UVC disinfection products, the Tru-D iQ system. As Tru-D technology was first introduced to the healthcare industry in 2007, this is the company’s most advanced innovation in fifteen years. The product portfolio addresses healthcare facilities’ needs for shorter cycle times with the same efficacy and the ability to implement UVC disinfection in smaller spaces such as bathrooms, physician/ER exam rooms and ambulance modules.
The Tru-D iQ system of connected products adapts to the needs of a wide range of space types to administer a precise dose of UVC. Using Sensor360 technology, Tru-D products provide trusted disinfection of hard, nonporous surfaces with speed and proven efficacy. The proprietary Sensor360 technology measures the reflected UVC energy that bounces back to the robot, allowing the Tru-D devices to provide a measured, required dose of UVC needed for thorough room disinfection.
The iQ system has three components—Tru-D iQ Tower, Tru-D iQ Scout and Tru-D iQ Controller—that together combine to provide a triple threat against unwanted microorganisms including Clostridioides difficile, SARS-CoV-2, influenza A, Staphylococcus aureus and Candida auris.
The iQ system lineup
Tower: Tower is the most powerful and intelligent device of the iQ system. It can be used by itself or together with its smaller counterpart, Scout.
Scout: Scout is a compact, maneuverable component of the iQ system that provides thorough UVC disinfection in small spaces such as bathrooms. It can be used in conjunction with Tower or by itself.
Controller: The Controller is the mobile command center for all iQ disinfection devices and connects to the Tru-D SmartHUB, an all-inclusive, web-based application that provides authorized users with the data, tools and resources needed to ensure each facility gets the most out of its enhanced disinfection program with the use of the Tru-D system.
“The demand for UVC disinfection equipment surged during the COVID-19 pandemic, and it became clear very quickly to health care facilities and environmental services teams that UVC disinfection is efficacious, safe and only adds minimal time to the cleaning process,” said Chuck Dunn, President of Tru-D SmartUVC. “The iQ system takes smart disinfection to the next level and builds on the outstanding performance of the Tru-D Classic device with a product portfolio that improves cycle times, increases efficacy and enhances safety measures.”
In addition, the iQ system provides unique features for operator ease of use and maximum UVC output including:
1. A nestled, smaller, second device that transports inside its larger counterpart.
2. Tower’s Dynamic Dosing which shifts UVC output dynamically between sensors to optimize cycle time.
3. Tower utilizes Flux Acceleration to ensure bulb peak performance by preheating to optimal operating temperature and minimizing bulb startup time.
