Sharp launched the world’s first air purifier with built-in mosquito catcher – FP-FM40E-B. The device is suitable for all households and is developed with the intention of providing families peace of mind and added protection against mosquitoes throughout the year.
The FP-FM40E-B is also able to reduce the prevalence of viruses, allergens and microbes as it is designed to remove particulates as small as 2.5 microns (PM 2.5). Of particular relevance to users in the region is the FP-FM40E-B’s ‘haze mode’ function, designed to effectively filter air by emitting a high dose of Plasmacluster ions for the first 10 minutes at the strongest airflow setting for maximum efficacy. Sharp’s proprietary Plasmacluster ion technology purifies the air by emitting positive and negative ions. See the demo video on how Plasmacluster Technology destroy virus.
The FP-FM40E-B’s mosquito catcher was developed after an intensive studies on mosquito behaviour, conducted in collaberation with the Institute for Medical Research in Malaysia, which is also the WHO Collaberation Centre for Vector. The device also able to trap and kill up to 73% of housefiles. Watch the test video below
