eVIO is highly effective for sanitizing a space. In particular, when operated in a manned environment, eVIO can help sanitize an entire space without affecting the human body by emitting ultraviolet rays that have been stripped of their harmful wavelengths, thereby maintaining a safe and clean environment.
eVIO is also effective in sanitizing object surfaces. Continuous irradiation is possible, especially in an un- attended environment, which maximizes the microbial suppression effect.

Ultraviolet light has a wavelength of 10-400 nm and is shorter than visible light and has a strong bactericidal effect. The wavelength of 222 nm is extremely useful because it retains the bactericidal effect without affecting the human body.
The absorption coefficient of proteins and keratin differs between the 222 nm UV and the conventional UV wavelength. Since 222nm ul- traviolet light does not penetrate into the skin and eyes, it has been found to have lower impact on the human body.
eVIO has a harmful ultraviolet blocking coating inside the lamp, and emits exclusively the wavelength of 222 nm with the harmful ultraviolet rays removed by the UV lamp. The lamp-integrated coating dramatically improves du- rability and maintainability compared to conventional products.
eVIO has a special reflective coating on the inside of the lamp that allows light rays to be reflected inside the light and efficiently extract the 222 nm wavelength
Although the safety of 222nm UV light is scienti- fically supported, the United States ACGIH (Ame- rican Conference of Governmental Industrial Hy- gienists) has established a Threshold Limit Value (TLV). Therefore, the eVIO uses motion sensors to control the operation so that the this limit is not exceeded in a manned environment.
