How much power does the AiroDoctor consume?

In continuous operation, the AiroDoctor consumes max. 85 watts.

Do I have to switch off the AiroDoctor at night?

No, you do not have to. The AiroDoctor automatically goes into sleep mode in a dark environment, where it continues to operate at the lowest level and deactivates the illuminated LED ring.

Where is the AiroDoctor produced?

The AiroDoctor is produced in South Korea. Here, the device was already used in Corona emergency centers at the beginning of the pandemic and recommended by the authorities for use in public buildings. In South Korea, the AiroDoctor has received scientific support from the renowned Korea Institute of Civil Engineering and Building Technology (KICT) since the beginning of its development. In January 2021, it joined the ranks of KICT's official partner companies and can draw on its technological and scientific resources. The European headquarters and central warehouse are located in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany and are represented by ScreenSource GmbH as co-developer of the AiroDoctor.

How do I know when the room air is no longer clean?

When switched on, the AiroDoctor independently detects when it needs to go into active operation. It also indicates when the air has been sufficiently cleaned. A light diode continuously measures the particle load of particles down to a size of PM2,5 (2.5 micrometer). The device responds to this light diode measurement with a delay of 2 to 3 seconds and automatically adjusts the speed of air purification. The AiroDoctor indicates the progress of air purification via the light indicator. The different colors indicate the air quality:
  • 0-79: very good or good
    (There is little or no health risk).
  • 80-119: moderate
    (Air quality is acceptable, there is a health risk only for a few very sensitive people).
  • 120-159: poor
    (There is a health risk for all persons sensitive to air pollution).
  • 160-500: very poor
    (Air quality is potentially hazardous to the health of all persons).

Is it possible for the AiroDoctor to go into operation automatically (automatic operation)?

Yes. When the AiroDoctor is switched on, it can use the automatic mode to detect when it needs to go into active operation or when the air has been sufficiently cleaned. A light diode continuously measures the particle load of particles down to a size of PM2,5 (2.5 micrometer). The device reacts to this light diode measurement with a delay of 2 to 3 seconds and automatically adjusts the speed of air cleaning. The AiroDoctor signals the progress of air purification via the light indicator. The different colors indicate the air quality:
  • 0-79: very good or good
    (There is little or no health risk).
  • 80-119: moderate
    (Air quality is acceptable, there is a health risk only for a few very sensitive people).
  • 120-159: poor
    (There is a health risk for all persons sensitive to air pollution).
  • 160-500: very poor
    (Air quality is potentially hazardous to the health of all persons).

Is there a remote control for the AiroDoctor?

Yes, a remote control is included in the scope of delivery as standard. The controls on the device and on the remote control are identical.

What must I be aware of during operation?

Do not lift or move the AiroDoctor while it is in operation. Make sure that the power cord, socket, as well as casing parts are not damaged. Do not insert anything into the ventilation openings and do not use any chemical substances (such as insecticides or room sprays) in the rooms to be cleaned.

Why does the AiroDoctor have a child lock and automatic tilt switch-off?

Child lock and automatic shut-off provide additional safety during operation. The child lock protects against accidental key entry, the automatic switch-off activates if the device is moved improperly.

What do the different colors of the light indicator indicate?

The circulating LED lighting indicates the level of pollution in the air, which is measured via the PM2.5 sensor. In automatic mode, the fan level 1-8 regulates itself up and down based on this measurement. The air pollution level is indicated in the range 0-500, which corresponds to the particle load in ug/m3 at a ratio of 1:4.
  • 0-79: very good or good
    (There is little or no health risk).
  • 80-119: moderate
    (Air quality is acceptable, there is a health risk only for a few very sensitive people).
  • 120-159: poor
    (There is a health risk for all persons sensitive to air pollution).
  • 160-500: very poor
    (Air quality is potentially hazardous to the health of all persons).

I want an air purifier that is powerful yet compact and mobile. Does the AiroDoctor meet these criteria?

Yes. The AiroDoctor is a powerful, professional air purifier. At the same time, it is very compact, measuring 400 (W) × 230 (D) × 640 (H) mm and weighing just under 12kg. Practical handles on both sides allow the AiroDoctor to be lifted and moved easily once the power plug is disconnected.

What do the numbers on the display stand for?

The numbers 0 to 500 indicate the density of the measured particles in the room air. The number has a ratio of 1:4 to the measured particle density.

The AiroDoctor cannot be switched on. Why?

The AiroDoctor has a sensor on the front panel of the unit. If this is not installed correctly, it cannot be switched on for safety reasons.

Is there an automatic mode on the AiroDoctor?

Yes. The AiroDoctor recognizes independently when it needs to go into active mode. It also signals when the air has been sufficiently purified.

On how many airflow levels can I operate the AiroDoctor?

The AiroDoctor has eight different airflow levels and one automatic mode.

Does the AiroDoctor have a timer?

Yes. You can set the timer every hour for up to twelve hours. Thanks to the intelligent automatic mode, the device also runs entirely without manual settings. In this automatic operating mode, the AiroDoctor automatically detects when the particle density in the air is too high and takes action.

I see purple light in the outflow vent. Are these UV-A rays?

No. UV-A waves are only perceptible to the human eye from 400nm (nanometers) only. The UV-A LEDs in the AiroDoctor operate at a wavelength of 385nm. During photocatalysis, the titanium dioxide (TiO2) completely absorbs the UV-A radiation from the LEDs. However, the radiation stimulates fluorescent materials to glow, which the human eye perceives as purple. The purple portion is a fraction of the emitted light, so to speak, the fringe of the wavelength used, but not UV-A radiation.

The AiroDoctor operates without ionization. Why do I see a symbol for ionization on the display and the remote control?

The AiroDoctor works without ionization. In a previous version of the product, we used ionization as an additional filter stage. However, it turned out that the results did not show any improvement, but additional risks for product safety and health occurred. Therefore, since Q4/2020, the ionization component is no longer part of the AiroDoctor. Since December 1, 2020, all devices are shipped without the symbol for ionization.

Does UV-A radiation leak out of the AiroDoctor?

No. The KC certification indicates that no measurable UV radiation (UV-A, UV-B, UV-C) is emitted from the device.
