Model 8910UVC | UVC Rechargeable Battery-Powered LED Light
Western Technology is very aware of the urgent need to address the safety of workers in our current pandemic situation. We have the technology and capability to ensure deployment of a dependable germicidal UVC light system. Our solution is the WT GERM KILLER®. This UVC LED light is built around our existing BODYLight™ platform that is currently used by our marine, industrial and aviation customers. It is a rugged handheld battery-operated light now equipped with 275nm UVC LEDs.
The WT GERM KILLER® uses Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI). UVGI is a disinfection method that uses short wavelength ultraviolet (UV-C) light to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions.
The technology we use is 99.9% effective in killing or inactivating mold and mold spores, bacteria including MRSA, TB, E. coli, Listeria, Salmonella, C. diff spores, CRKP, VRE and all viruses including colds, flu, measles, HIV Retrovirus, Infectious Hepatitis, Norovirus and the Coronavirus.

How effective is the UVC BODYLight at killing COVID-19?
How much UVC radiation can a person be safely exposed to?
How much does it cost to operate the UVC BODYLight?
How does UVC light kill the COVID-19 virus?
Does the UVC BODYLight generate ozone gas?
How do I know if germicidal UVC light is being emitted?
UVC Light Emissions
The projected angle of the light emission is over 120°, providing wide UVC coverage and an efficient sanitizing zone of germicidal radiation. The “red”” visible light emission is provided not only to see where to disinfect, but also to provide a visual reference as to where the invisible UVC light is projected. This is for your safety and the safety of others during operation.
Note: UVC option requires operator wear PPE and confirmation required training has been completed. UVC 275nm can be hazardous to human health with extended unprotected exposure.
The 275nm peak wavelength of UVC emissions generated from the WT GERM KILLER®, kills germs & viruses in less than 2 seconds¹ when held 4-inches from a surface.
¹ It has been shown that a 1-second exposure of 265nm UVC light at 1.93 mW/cm2 was sufficient to induce a 100% germicidal effect on microorganisms. (Note: 262nm UVC radiation has been shown to be the peak germicidal wavelength.)

The bumpers on the WT GERM KILLER® – UVC BODYLight are fluorescent orange in color to allow for quick recognition of the purpose of this light. Further the glow-in-the-dark features on the top of the light head and the ring around the battery pack will continue to glow for about 24 hours to aid in FOD safety.
Battery Pack & Power Supply Options
The Battery Pack used with the WT GERM KILLER® – UVC BODYLight is interchangeable with the standard BODYLights currently, so there is commonality in charging and deployment already established. The runtime on a single charge is about 4-hours at high power. The light head can also be connected to a belt-mounted manifold equipped with two battery packs, and a 6-foot cable, providing 8-hours of operations. There is also a power supply box & plug available for longer continuous use.
Bristle Cone Attachment
Another feature for added safety is the Bristle Cone. This cone provides a quick reference for the user as to the effective sanitizing field distance from a surface and also to protect from scattered UVC light off of surfaces to the user and other workers in the vicinity. The Bristle Cone is constructed with nylon bristles set in a ring that is held in place by the front bumpers.
