For HVAC systems
1. Determine a location for the UVPhotoMAX
Signature Series. Mount the unit on the exit
or supply side of the HVAC system and
before the ductwork branches off.
2. Separate the power module from the
mounting plate. See Fig. 1
Remove blue lamp protector. See Fig. 2
4. Mark a 4" round opening (or use the
end of the PCO chamber to mark the
area) on the air duct and cut the hole
needed for the insertion of the
advanced photocatalytic chamber.
See Fig. 3.

WARNING: UV Hazard. Always protect eyes from ultraviolet light.
NEVER look at UV lamps in operation. Unplug or disconnect power
before replacing lamps or servicing.
WARNING: Severe eye damage or temporary blinding may occur.
WARNING: DO NOT operate outside of air handler. Operate only
WARNING: No openings in HVAC system are allowed which would
give direct line-of-sight to the UV light.
In the event of accidental breakage or replacement of the ultraviolet lamp,
please ensure that the lamp is disposed of in accordance with local and state
environmental laws regarding fluorescent lamps containing mercury.
Notice: All wiring inside air handling system in direct line of site of the UV
lamp must be shielded with aluminum foil tape or equivalent non-combustible
material. When installing this unit, select a mounting location that prevents
ultraviolet light exposure to plastic non UV-rated flexible duct liner or
other plastic components with unknown resistance to ultraviolet light.
Ultraviolet light may cause color shift or structural degradation of plastic
HVAC components. If installing where UV light can directly contact fiberglass
duct board, contact manufacturer of fiberglass product for advice on UV
rating. If unknown, install metal sheathing or foil tape to completely protect
fiberglass duct board from UV light exposure.
Adjust Photon Clarifier. See page 7.
8. Place the power module on the unit aligning holes
in tabs with holes in mounting plate (upper left /
lower right). See Fig. 6.
9. Secure the power module to the mounting plate with
the remaining two self-tapping screws.
10. Plug power cable in.

Your UVPhotoMAX is equipped
with an advanced electronic high-
speed power supply that monitors
operation and protects the UV
lamp filaments. It also monitors
elapsed time and bi-annually
reminds that lamp replacement is
required. (See page 8 for reset
instructions). Below is a chart that
describes how to interpret the
Disconnect power supply before beginning installation to prevent
electrical shock or equipment damage.
2. Connect secondary voltage. Refer to voltage color or terminal coding on
transformer for proper wire combination. On terminal type transformer, be
sure that no exposed wire can come in contact with any terminal.
3. Connect primary voltage. Refer to voltage color coding on transformer for
proper wire combination. See Fig. 1 for connection and installation.
4. Tape or protect all unused exposed wire separately to avoid a possible
5. Check installation and reconnect power supply for proper operation.
