280 nm UV LEDs

Used for Water Desinfection

(PresseBox) (Olching, ) One method to produce drinking water is sterilization via UV radation at 280 nm. LASER COMPONENTS offers two UV LEDs at a wavelength of 280 nm, both of which are based on InAlGaN light diodes. They differ in their optical power: The LEUVA77G00HF00 with a wavelength of 275 nm and 10 mW and the LEUFVA66B- 00HF00 at 278 nm and 1,6 mW.

The wavelengths in the UVC range are produced from an alloy of gallium nitride and aluminum nitride. UV LEDs do not need to warm up, have a long lifespan, and are light and compact. Thus, they are perfectly suited for effective use in remote and offgrid sterilization systems, such as, for example, airplanes. Due to direct current operation, a solar installation can also be used as the power supply.
