Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is UV-C radiation harmful to people and animals?
    SAL Systems brings you safe and smart lighting solutions. Our non-mercury based LED lighting system is concentrated in specific areas of interaction, so surfaces and objects outside the marked area are not exposed to the light. Our advanced laser Lidar sensors detect human presence in a millisecond and automatically shut down the diodes, preventing any potential eye irritation or skin harm that may occur from prolonged exposure to powerful UV radiation. Experience the peace of mind that comes with using safe and smart lighting technology.
  • How do you make Credi-Clean safe?
    The anchored installation method Developed by SAL Systems allows for smaller light sources and reduces radiation exposure, ensuring the safety of those nearby. The lights are focused on the exact areas where disinfection is needed, providing precise control and avoiding any "spill" onto surrounding areas. The motion sensors switch off the UV-C light when motion is detected, and will automatically power down if no motion is detected for approximately 3 minutes, only powering on when a valid movement trigger is detected. Trust SAL Systems for efficient and safe disinfection.
  • Why a device for a credit card terminal? what about the rest of the building?
    Research shows a busy cashier could transact with around 300- 500 clients per shift, in certain cases up to 1000 per day! Taking into account that Viruses have been reported to survive on certain surfaces for up to 72 hours, it is vitally important that these high contact surfaces are continually cleaned. By automating the cleaning system, the risk is decreased. Other larger areas only have very few interactions per day, thus less risk.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic has stabilized. Will all these installations be necessary?
    UVC is not new technology and has been used in food processing, water filtration, and hospitals for decades. UVC light has the ability to destroy the genetic material inside viruses and other microbes. These installations will help us continually prevent contact transmission of viruses and bacteria via credit card terminals.
