The laudation of the jury: „A considerable reduction of the operating costs whilst maintaining a high performance of the protection functions, promises the Claire® safety cabinet.
Apart from the energ-efficienty eco-mode, modern EC-fans and air dynamically optimized HEPA-cartridge filters, especially the auto-on-off-function is intended to guarantee the extremely energy-efficient operation. If the user is not within the vicinity of the presence sensor, at the end of the safety clean cylce the front window will be closed automatically. All consumers are switched off, to conserve valuable energy. If the user enters the detection area, the original operating state is reinstated.
Thomas Wollstein, VDI-Expert and juror, summarizes: »There is an energy saving mode, energy efficient illumination with LEDs and the cabinet is so clever, that it can go to sleep when it i being used. The last point is standard for consumer electronic equipment, but for a safety cabinet it is definitely a novelty.«“
