SETI ‘highly commended’ by IET’s Innovation Awards for UVClean DUV LED lamp

Deep ultraviolet (UV) LED maker Sensor Electronic Technology Inc (SETI) of Columbia, SC, USA has been selected as a ‘highly commended’ innovative company by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET, Europe’s largest professional engineering society) during its 2010 Innovation Awards.

This year, the IET received a record number of almost 400 nominations for the Innovation Awards, from which SETI was shortlisted to five entries in the category of ‘Emerging Technologies’ for the development of its UVClean deep UV LED lamps.

Based on the same technology as the firm’s UVTOP products, SETI says that its UVClean lamps have been developed to provide a reliable, compact and environmentally friendly solid-state light source for healthy lifestyle products. Markets including water, air and surface disinfection have been identified, as well as phototherapy for treating conditions such as psoriasis, vitiligo and eczema. All of these markets require high-power lamps. SETI has standard UVClean products commercially available at powers of 1–3mW, 3-5mW, 10–15mW and 30–50mW.

UVClean lamps have already been designed into customer’s disinfection products and SETI believes that, with the benefits delivered from LEDs, UVClean will become the industry standard for UV lamps in the healthy lifestyles market.
