UV-C LED Benefits
Enables disinfection directly at point of consumption
UV-C LEDs and advanced electronic controls allow for a much smaller footprint compared to traditional UV systems. This lends itself to a deeper embedding of UV-C LEDs into processes requiring disinfection.
Solid-state UV-C LEDs will always have a footprint advantage, given the nature of high-power density of LED technology. From a structural standpoint, UV-C LEDs are smaller and offer higher ultraviolet power densities than mercury-based UV lamps, meaning one can concentrate more light in a given area without the aid of external optical components and at a very small footprint.
In addition to power density advantages, a move to digital disinfection™ drastically reduces the overall footprint of UV-C LED systems as lamp drivers and advanced controls are incorporated into a small electronic board along with the UV-C LED.
