Door Micro Switches In UV Sterilization Cabinets

What are micro switches used in the UV sterilizer cabinet?

When we use the sterilization and disinfection cabinet, we first need to turn on the power switch. The power switch used here is a boat-type rocker switch. The primary function of the rocker switch is to open or close the power connection circuit of the disinfection cabinet. The general specification is 6A 250AC or 10A 125VAC. Different power, materials, and functions can be selected according to actual needs, for example, 10A 125VAC, 6A 250VAC, 3A 125VAV; long pointed feet, raised feet, long feet, etc.

Another type of micro switch used in sterilization and disinfection cabinet doors is Unionwell’s SWP series door switches. The usage scenarios are as follows:

When we open the door of the sterilization and disinfection cabinet, the SWP door microswitches are in the off state. The door light micro switches will automatically disconnect the circuit connection of the sterilizer disinfection lamp, that is, turn off the disinfection lamp. In this way, door micro switches can avoid that the disinfection lamp is still working after the door of the sterilization and disinfection cabinet is opened, which will cause physical harm;

When we close the door of the sterilization and disinfection cabinet, the SWP door micro switches are on, the circuit of the ultraviolet disinfection lamp is connected, and the disinfection cabinet plays a disinfection role.


Working principle of ultraviolet sterilization and disinfection cabinet

Ultraviolet sterilization and disinfection cabinets use ultraviolet rays of appropriate wavelengths to destroy the molecular structure of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) or RNA (ribonucleic acid) in microbial cells, causing growth cell death and regenerative cell death, achieving sterilization and disinfection. Effect. This disinfection method is based on modern epidemiology, medicine, and photodynamics. It uses specially designed high-efficiency, high-intensity, and long-life UVC band ultraviolet light to irradiate flowing water to directly kill various bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens on the object’s surface. Die for disinfection.


What types of disinfection cabinets are there?


1.High-temperature electronic disinfection cabinet

The effect of killing bacteria and viruses is good; the heating speed is fast, the time is short, and the time for one disinfection is generally less than 25 minutes. At the same time, no gas is generated during the disinfection process, which is easy for users to accept. High-temperature electronic disinfection cabinets are suitable for tableware and tea sets made of stainless steel, aluminum, ceramics, and glass but not for heat-resistant plastic, lacquer, wood, and bamboo products.

Generally, the power consumption of electronic disinfection cabinets at home is about 600-700 watts, and the power consumption of each disinfection is more than that of low-temperature types. Slightly expensive.


2.Low-temperature disinfection cabinet

Sterilization and disinfection take a long time, and it takes 60 minutes to complete disinfection. If the door seal of the cabinet is not well sealed, a small amount of unpleasant odor of ozone will escape. But any material can be sterilized, including plastic bottles, nipples, tea sets, and cutlery. Low-temperature electronic disinfection cabinets generally consume less power, most of which are below 200 watts at home, and the price is relatively low.


3.Dual-function electronic disinfection cabinet

It has the functions of high-temperature and low-temperature disinfection, which can be used for high-temperature and ozone disinfection. It is an ideal disinfection cabinet for household use. The power consumption of this type of sterilizer is similar to that of the high-temperature electronic sterilizer, and the price is slightly higher than that of the high-temperature electronic sterilizer. However, its complete functions can meet the disinfection of tableware made of any material, which is prevalent among consumers.


4.Mini electronic disinfection cabinet

  The ozone method is used for disinfection, the appearance is beautiful, luxurious, and chic, and the price is not high. However, this kind of disinfection cabinet is not equipped with a blower device, the ozone is not uniform during disinfection, and the ozone sinks, which has the disadvantages of uneven disinfection and poor disinfection performance.


5.Ultraviolet sterilization cabinet

Ultraviolet rays with appropriate wavelengths can destroy the molecular structure of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) or RNA (ribonucleic acid) in microbial cells, causing growth cell death and regenerative cell death and achieving the effect of sterilization and disinfection.
