Ultraviolet beams are an efficient means of water purification or sterilisation. LG Innotek, industrial partner, and LASER COMPONENTS, has announced the first UVC modules with water resistant (IPX7) and waterproof (IPX8) housings. They can be applied close to or even in liquids, thus providing highly efficient purification and low dispersion losses.
Both modules are equipped with SMD LEDs emitting at 278nm and featuring an optical power of 2mW. They only require 12VDC power sources. With sizes of only a few centimetres, they can easily be integrated into a vast range of applications.
