That is the best I could come up with, and thought they would set up some UV generating devices rather than have it built into the lighting system.
Perhaps they have some lice or bedbugs that breed very quickly, and the UVs are built in.
I don't recall how difficult it was for Gordon to make it work. Perhaps he did something to the circuitry that is not usually done, like feed more power to UV generators that usually run on a small amount of current. Yeah, I'm going for the last, just as you could drive humans nuts by running high frequencies through the comm system.
