The EverSafe® III TOUCH Control advanced microprocessor safety controller is designed to enable simple and precise user control of all hood or workstation functions. EverSafe™ III has 18 primary control Icons that allow the end user to view and/or modify the hood or workstation settings. The primary home screen features display of face velocity to show users they are working within OSHA requirements. Face velocity is vividly displayed in either linear feet per minute or meters per second. The lower portion of the EverSafe™ III TOUCH controller screen is designed to give the following information to the end user; current date, time and blower setting.
EverSafe™ III TOUCH control maintains fume hood or workstation face velocity by taking constant measurements at the opening and automatically adjusting airflow to ensure compliance to user preset values. The end user is allowed to determine desired face velocity through the "Blower Settings" icon. Mystaire® calibrates and ships each ductless hood and filtered workstation with a preset face velocity of 80 linear feet per minute or .4 meters per second.
Sophisticated electronic controls determine chemical breakthrough based on the type of solvents used within the hood or workstation. Visible and audible alarms alert the operator if airflow is at an unsafe level or if the installed filters are approaching saturation, allowing sufficient time to replace filters.
The EverSafe™ III TOUCH control microprocessor safety controller allows the end user to select the built-in solid state gas detection package sensitivity. The solid state gas sensor can be set at three distinct levels that correspond to established occupation levels. A sensitivity level set point should be selected by the end user that is appropriate with the TLV for the current chemical being manipulated. This provides the end user with an audible and visual alarm that indicates the primary installed filtration has reached saturation and allows the installed safety filtration to protect the end user during experimentation shutdown.
EverSafe™ III TOUCH control displays current installed filtration within the hood or workstation and provides a bar graph consumption monitor to show filter life. The "FILTERS" icon, when pressed, displays the following filtration type; Main, Safety and Pre-filter. Additionally, the end user can select and change the three types of filters independently of the others.
Energy monitoring is standard with EverSafe™ III TOUCH control and continues to become a focal point of every laboratory. Cost of operation is a focal point in every business's operational budget. EverSafe™ III TOUCH control allows end user display of hood or workstation energy consumption through the "ENERGY USE" Icon. Displayed to the end user is a log of energy consumption, by the ductless hood or workstation, of the life time kilowatt hours and real time power/current/voltage.
