Pi Day 2021 Launch: MIT Alums to Offer Innovative Low-UVC Light Halō for Disinfecting Indoor Air in Public Places

GARDENA, CA (14 March 2021) - Today, Pi Day 2021 at 1:59 AM, LUV SYSTEMS, INC. launched its retail website for the LUV Systems indoor air disinfection system, the halō Model 5R/M.  the halō is a first-in-kind low-wavelength ultraviolet (low-UVC) disinfection system, comprising a novel upflow fan and light ring to carry away and treat breathing zone air, returning clean air back into a room.

Danish Khatri, VP-Engineering, notes, "Each Model 5R/M is suitable for rooms up to 1,000 ft2, like typical suburban classrooms or coffee shops.  We expect to lock in Califorinia-mandated safety testing in the near future and plan to accept reservation deposits by the end of the month."

the halō is the first of multiple LUV Systems products that are:

  • PROVEN against Covid-19 and most pathogens;
  • SAFE for people and pets in occupied spaces; and,
  • AFFORDABLE for personal/commercial markets

Neeraj Chaudhary, VP Marketing, notes that LUV Systems products offer “affordable consumer and commercial products to accelerate the safe reopening of economies, while providing necessary peace of mind as people return to a state of normal in homes, offices, schools, retail and entertainment establishments, and transportation systems.”

Ultraviolet disinfection technology has been used for over 100 years in many applications including hospitals, laboratories, and water treatment facilities.  LUV Systems products are designed with a 100x safety margin for acceptable exposures as established by FCC for devices such as cell phones.

LUV Systems’ LUVTM product line includes personal and installed devices to disinfect surfaces and air while people are present and conducting their normal activities, without direct human exposure. LUVTM air disinfection products are designed to clear indoor spaces in less than five minutes, which is 3X faster than the CDC’s published 15-minute guideline for indoor air.

LUV Systems products currently incorporate engineering controls such as motion sensors to automatically control and monitor device operation.  Future product releases are planned with body temperature, tilt, and distance sensors, plus algorithms including a mobile app.

LUV Systems inventions are designed in America and Anu Sood, CEO, states “the products can easily be 100% manufactured in the United States.  We continue to seek business and governmental partners to continue research and development, and secure international patents.”

Approximately 3.14 of LUV's leadership team graduated from MIT, including Sood '86 '87 in chemical engineering, Khatri '04 '06 in electrical engineering, and Stan Thompson '95 in physics.  Our entire team including alums from many exceptional schools wishes you a Happy Pi Day 2021!
