With increasing concerns about urban air pollution and the COVID-19 pandemic, people are becoming more conscious of the air they breathe. The Teco Pure UVC Module is designed to provide a solution to this issue. It features a set of cleaning modules that can be easily integrated above the air conditioner. In addition to filtering out harmful PM2.5 particles, the module is equipped with UV-C technology that effectively sterilizes and disinfects the air.
One of the key advantages of the Teco Pure UVC Module is its easy installation process. There is no need for an extra power socket as it is integrated into the air conditioner's motherboard through an expansion chip. Users can control the module through the remote control or a mobile app. When the air conditioner is turned on, the module is activated, filtering and sterilizing the air at the source of indoor air circulation. This ensures a continuous supply of clean air, providing the same air purification effect as a standalone air purifier.
The Teco Pure UVC Module stands out not only for its functionality but also for its energy efficiency. Unlike traditional air purifiers that require regular replacement of filter consumables, this module utilizes electrostatic dust collection technology, reducing the need for consumable replacements. Additionally, the integrated chip design allows for lower power consumption, minimizing the carbon footprint while enhancing the quality of life and creating a healthy environment.
During the design process of the Teco Pure UVC Module, the team faced challenges related to the material's chemical properties. UVC irradiation can cause the plastic shell to become fragile and crack over time. Through extensive experimentation, the team adjusted the intensity and angle of UVC irradiation and optimized the composition of the plastic shell, resulting in a stable and long-lasting product.
Launched in January 2022 in Taiwan, the Teco Pure UVC Module has become a unique and highly sought-after design in the industry. It addresses the increasing demand for clean air in a convenient and efficient manner. By integrating air purification with air conditioning systems, Teco Electric and Machinery Co., Ltd has created a solution that enhances the quality of life while reducing energy consumption.
The Teco Pure UVC Module was recognized for its excellence and innovation, receiving the Iron A' Design Award in the Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning Products category in 2023. This prestigious award is given to designs that meet professional and industrial requirements, integrating industry best practices and competent technical characteristics. The Teco Pure UVC Module stands as a testament to Teco Electric and Machinery Co., Ltd's commitment to creating a better world through innovative and practical designs.
