Everlight launches UVC LED series for medical treatment, water and air purification/sterilization
Taiwan-based Everlight Electronics Co Ltd has launched its ELUC3535NUB series of UVC LED products, which use epitaxial and flip-chip technology on a sapphire substrate, for sterilization applications.
Popular markets for UV applications are curing, medical treatment, photocatalyst and counterfeit testing. Recently, rapid growth of demand in UV markets has been seen, especially in air purification and the sterilization of standing or running water. Everlight has invested in LED technology for many years and has developed UVA and UVC products. There are already existing 2016, 3535 and 4545 packages for UVA (UV black light radiation, 360-410nm) including low to high wattages and several kinds of emitting angles for individual customer options.
Packaged in inorganic quartz glass with an emission wavelength of 280nm, the new ELUC3535NUB UVC LED Series (3.5mm x 3.5mm x 1.4mm) spans three different intensity levels (2mW, 10mW and 30mW), making it suitable for applications such as medical treatment, water or air purification and sterilization of germs, viruses or mold. Furthermore, the ELUC3535NUB LEDs can be used for deodorizing and bactericidal treatment, when installed for example in a modern smart toilet. A similar effect can also be achieved by using the firm’s UVA3535 (1.8W, 120℃) LEDs in combination with titanium dioxide (TiO2).
