CEL announced a new family of Deep UltraViolet (UV-C) LEDs for a wide range of sterilization and disinfection applications including consumer goods such as self-disinfecting holders for toothbrushes and kitchen utensils as well as sterilizing wands for items such as smartphones, tablets and keyboards. Other applications include water treatment, sterilization of medical equipment and disinfection of heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems.
CEL’s UV-C LED’s features include an emitting wavelength of 275 nm, which is a particularly effective wavelength in the UV-C spectrum at killing bacteria for sterilization applications. In addition, CEL’s devices provide high efficiency with long lifetimes that have been lacking in competitor offerings. For example, CEL’s 3 mW output version, with a 25 mA current requirement, has a lifetime exceeding 10,000 Hours. CEL LEDs consist of a cutting edge AlGaN chip in a very high thermal conductive 3.5 mm × 3.5 mm ceramic package with a shielded transmittance glass lid.
CEL’s UV-C LEDs are available for shipment globally through Digi-Key Electronics, the worldwide electronic component distributor.
