◆ Indicator
- Displays the Clean Level by differing its blinking speed.
- If the air cleaner is operating at the Pollen Mode, the Indicator shows
the image of big dust particles by blinking.
◆ Contamination Level Indicator
- Classifies the various contaminants in the indoor air, as Odor, Mote and Dust,
and up to 8 levels can be displayed.
- Green indicates that the indoor air is clean. Red means that the indoor
air is contaminated.
- During the first two minutes after the air cleaner is turned on, the contamination level
will move up and down because the sensor will be in the
process of analyzing the contamination level of the indoor air.
So it is recommended that you check the contamination level
in 2 minutes.

◆ VOCs(Volatile Organic Compounds) are substances which are
evaporated easily at the room temperature. Common sources
which emit VOCs into the indoor air include housekeeping
products, building and furnishing materials. In sufficient quantities,
VOCs can have direct adverse effects on human health. Many
VOCs have been classified as toxic and carcinogenic substances.
Therefore it is harmful to be exposed to these compounds for a
long period.
