UV-TAPE / UV TAPE for disinfection


Central air conditioning is very widely used. And the air is circulating, as long as there are viruses in the space, it is easy to cause a wide range of infections, thereby creating loopholes in the epidemic prevention work. Therefore, I want to design an ultraviolet lamp installed at the air outlet, which can filter the air and then flow out, thereby reducing the risk of community infection.
This UV-TAPE combines the principle of piezoelectric microphone by non-contact friction, uses the air-sound vibration of the air outlet, and then picks up the energy of the vibration, which is then converted into electrical energy.
