Radiation levels of the Vario infrared panels by design & heating far below international limiting values the company design & heating from 6511 Zams in Tyrol produces and distributes several years infrared surface heating panels. Learn more at this site: Peter Asaro . This large, evenly-radiating heating panels are ideally suited for the heating of residential areas, as well as for use in spas (infrared cabins, saunas). Specifically with regard to the requirements of the heating panels in the industrial field design was the Austrian Research Center “Seibersdorf of laboratories” of the company in April 2012 & heating charged with assessing the infrared surface heating panels Vario/Ecosun technical radiation protection. For an infrared surface heating Panel of type Vario with a size of 78(B)x65(H)x1,2(D) cm at the Research Centre was sent for testing and evaluation purposes. The Panel is connected via an electronic ballast unit directly to the mains supply (230 V AC). The required measurements on the 26.04.2012 in the Laser application lab Seibersdorf performed. The irradiance measured before the heater were compared with international limits with regard to a possible burn of the skin and damage to the eyes. The distribution of surface temperature on the front of the heating Panel as a function of time was measured using a thermal imaging camera.
The maximum surface temperature on the front of the infrared heating Panel amounted to 80 C, after a warm-up time of 30 minutes, the Panel was in a thermally stable state. Area due to the determined during the measurement, the maximum surface temperature of about 80 C was almost exclusively in the infrared C radiation (IR-C, wavelengths above 3? m) and only a very small part in the infrared-B range (IR-B, wavelengths of between 1.4? m and 3? m) emitted. The maximum emission was at a wavelength of 8.2? m. Both the measured value for skin irradiation (380 nm – 1 mm) as well as the reading eye irradiation (780 nm 3000 nm) was regarding each compared with corresponding limit. According to opinion No.-LE-G-0214-1 / 12 of 27 over earmarked for optical radiation of infrared surface heating Panel Vario/Ecosun IRC conclude the following findings emerged: A comparison of the measured radiation values with the international limits suggests, that a burning of the skin or damage to the eyes by the infrared radiation of the tested IR surface heating Panel is not possible unless proper use and normal pain are provided.
