Abstract: A mobile sanitizer movable across a surface to sanitize the surface. The sanitizer may comprise an ultraviolet light source that illuminates the surface and a microprocessor control. The control may adjust the light source intensity in response to a speed of the movement of the light source relative to the surface. And, for instance, the control may drive a display indicating how movement of the device relates to sanitization settings input by a user.
Abstract: Methods, devices, and materials that include, in certain embodiments, a mobile device, movable across a surface by a user, that provides ultraviolet light for a process of sanitizing or sterilizing the surface that comprises an ultraviolet light source for illuminating the surface with the ultraviolet light to thereby sanitize or sterilize the surface. The device may include a movement sensor operatively coupled to a microprocessor that receives movement data from the movement sensor, and an indicator that is operatively coupled to the microprocessor, with the microprocessor comprising programming to perform a comparison of the calculated dosage to a predetermined dosage, wherein the microprocessor, based on the comparison, controls the indicator to provide instructions to the user.
Abstract: Ultraviolet light is an effective sterilization agent. Convenient mobile sterilization devices are described herein that, in certain embodiments, provide indications to a user of how much sterilizing light is required for a given sterilization goal and how much light has been applied to a surface towards that goal. Users can move the devices across a target surface as needed to sterilize or disinfect the surface, with the device tracking the dosage applied to the surface. One embodiment of a mobile device that comprises an ultraviolet C (UVC) light source, a distance detector, an indicator, and a microprocessor that receives data from the distance detector for calculating an intensity of the light from the source on a target surface and for calculating a dosage of the light on the surface to provide a signal to the indicator when a predetermined dosage is achieved.
Abstract: Convenient mobile sterilization devices are described herein that, in certain embodiments, provide secure storage in a niche in a protective housing and one-button action to automatically deploy and activate the device for quick and powerful destruction of germs on a surface using one hand. Users can hold the UV-light device and move it across a target surface to sterilize or disinfect the surface. The device may be compact, easily deployed, provided with a durable cover for secure storage, and equipped with safety shut-off features to prevent unwanted uses.
Abstract: A light fixture assembly with a mounting element for attaching a light fixture accessory to a stem of the light fixture assembly, the light fixture accessory detachably connectable to the mounting element, the light fixture assembly also having an interface for attaching various light fixture accessories to the bracket.
Abstract: The invention relates to a light fixture assembly having a ballast substantially maintaining a consistent current and further includes an indicator for indicating a problem with the light fixture assembly. A switch remote from the ballast may be provided where a circuit in cooperation with the switch impedes the flow of electricity through the ballast when the switch is in an off position. The light fixture assembly may be assembled and disassembled, namely the lamp head, post, base, ballast, and electrical cord, without use of a tool.
Abstract: A light fixture assembly kit, distributed in a single package, providing for a versatile light fixture assembly that may be freely configured and re-configured as either a desk-mounted light fixture, a floor-mounted light fixture or a clamp-type mounted light fixture. The light fixture assembly kit provided as a premium to a customer for obtaining an article of commerce or a service, such that the various configuration pieces may be provided as upgrades or additional premiums as the customer obtains and/or purchases various articles of commerce or services.
