Due to their sterilizing effect against the corona virus, the demand for UV LEDs has increased tremendously. However, UV light can cover many more applications (e.g. odour elimination, disinfection of water, air and/or surfaces, curing, horticulture, medical imaging of cells, drug detection, fire safety, conservation process, photosynthesis…). The traditional lamps have many disadvantages such as finite on/off Switching . In addition, Filters (Hepa, activated carbon, ceramic ...) are based on the storage effect (the pollutants are only retained, but not destroyed), need a maintenance and aren´t suitable for the online control. UVA-LEDs are particularly suitable for coating metal containers due to their better corrosion protection. Also for drying and curing of plastic coatings, or of lacquer on wood, e.g. for floor coverings or wooden furniture and for curing systems of adhesives, as well as for drying in 3D/ink printers, this technology is convincing. The Rutronik portfolio proposes UV-leds, UV-modules, UV-lens, LED-driver, air fan, control-sensor (UV, VOC, PIR …) for the thermal management and heat dissipation . We offer an evaluation board for customers, which detects odors by means of a VOC sensor and neutralizes them with UVA-LEDs plus photocatalyse filter on the one hand and on the other hand a board, which enables the disinfection of air, water and surfaces by means of UVC-LEDS.
Come and join our sessions on 09.06.2021 to get the latest information about full UV-solutions and applications for water disinfection, virus destruction , odour elimination and curing. You can access a series of technical presentations from leading suppliers of electronic components, where you will be shown innovative focus products optimised for use in UV applications. We invite you to take this opportunity to meet the experts from Stanley, Liteon, Laser Components, Assmann WSW, Infineon and Ledil to exchange information with them on the day.
