UV LAMP
(MCO-18AC(UV) or MCO-18AC with MCO-18UVS3)
The clauses below are applicable when the model is MCO-18AC(UV) or an optional UV system kit
MCO-18UVS3 is installed.
A UV lamp is located inside the duct to sterilize the water in the humidifying pan and air circulating in the
chamber.
Following shows precautions and instructions about the UV lamp.
 When all chamber attachments are installed correctly, only the inside of the duct and the inside of the
humidifying pan cover are exposed to UV light.
 Correctly install all of the chamber attachments when starting a cell culture, and never turn ON the UV
lamp when the humidifying pan cover is removed.
 Always install the humidifying pan cover even when using the incubator without turning ON the UV
lamp. Leaving the cover uninstalled will affect the chamber temperature distribution and the humidity
recovery performance.
 The UV lamp stays lit for a preset period of time after the outer door is closed. The default setting is for
5 minutes. The period can be changed when necessary as shown in the page 21.
 If the outer door is not opened for at least 12 consecutive hours, the UV lamp will light for the preset
time period every 12 hours. The period can be changed when necessary as shown in the page 21.
● When checking the UV lamp operation, open the outer door and push the door switch with the inner
door closed. The visible blue light can be checked under the humidifying pan cover. The UV light is
harmful to eyes. Never turn on the UV light with the inner door or humidifying pan cover opened.
 The recommended replacement time for the UV lamp (i.e., when the UV output ratio drops to approx.
70% of its initial value) is when the accumulated ON time reaches 1,000 hours. When the accumulated
ON time reaches approximately 1,000 hours, the UV indicator blinks (when the UV lamp is not lit). It is
recommended that the UV lamp be quickly replaced at this point. Contact a Sanyo sales representative or
agent for information on replacing the UV lamp.
 If the UV lamp burns out, E18 is displayed on the digital temperature indicator. If this occurs, replace
the UV lamp. When replacing the UV lamp, replace the glow starter (type FG-7P) at the same time.
Contact a Sanyo sales representative or agent for information on replacing the UV lamp.
