DRUVS and NOTESCLEAN - COVID-19

DRUVS and NOTESCLEAN

Defence Research Ultraviolet Sanitiser (DRUVS).

Hyderabad-based Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) premier lab, Research Centre Imarat (RCI), has developed an automated contactless UVC sanitisation cabinet, called Defence Research Ultraviolet Sanitiser (DRUVS).

It has been designed to sanitise mobile phones, iPods, laptops, currency notes, cheque leaves, challans, passbooks, paper, envelopes, etc.

The DRUVS cabinet is having contactless operations which is very important to contain the spread of the virus.

The proximity sensor switches clubbed with a drawer opening and closing mechanism make its operation automatic and contactless.

It provides 360-degree exposure of UVC to the objects placed inside the cabinet. Once the sanitisation is done, the system goes in sleep mode hence the operator need not wait or stand near the device.

NOTESCLEAN

The RCI has also developed an automated UVC currency sanitising device, called NOTESCLEAN.

Bundles of currency notes can be sanitised using DRUVS, however, disinfection of each currency note using it will be a time-consuming process.

For that purpose, a sanitising technique has been developed, where one has to just place the loose currency notes at the input slot of the device.

It picks the notes one by one and makes them pass through a series of UVC lamps for complete disinfection.
