The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) Hyderabad based premier lab, Research Centre Imarat (RCI) has developed an automated contactless UVC sanitisation cabinet known as Defence Research Ultraviolet Sanitiser (DRUVS). The sanitiser has been designed to sanitise mobile phones, iPads, laptops, currency notes, cheque leafs, challans, passbooks, paper, envelopes, etc.
The DRUVS cabinet is having contactless operation which is very important to break the chain and the spread of virus. The proximity sensor switches, clubbed with drawer opening and closing mechanism, makes its operation automatic and contactless. The sanitiser provides 360 degree exposure of UVC to the objects inside the cabinet. After completeing the sanitisation, it goes in sleep mode and the operator need not wait or to stand near the device.
NOTESCLEAN, the name of the device has been developed by the RCI which is an automated UVC currency sanitising device. Currency notes in large can be sanitised using DRUVS, sice each sanitisation of each currency note is a time consuming process. A sanitising technique has been developed, where one has to just place the loose currency notes at the input slot of the device. It picks the notes one by one and makes them pass through a series of UVC lamps for complete disinfection.
