Lextar launches UVC LED sterilization solutions
Vertically integrated LED product maker Lextar Electronics Corp of Hsinchu, Taiwan (a subsidiary of Ennostar Inc) has launched comprehensive UVC LED sterilization integrated solutions with over 99.9% sterilization efficiency, noting that – since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic – the demand for sterilization has surged, and the application of UVC LEDs has become more diverse.
Lextar can offer full-band UVC products with wavelengths ranging from 255nm to 285nm with different emitting angles to satisfy various sterilization demands, and these products have been used on home appliances. For air sterilization, Lextar provides the sterilization modules in air conditioning which – in combination with the air outlet system – have been accepted by the top three Japanese air conditioning/purifier brands and major home appliance manufacturers in EU and USA. The surface sterilization solution is used by robot vacuum, kitchen and sanitary-ware manufacturers in Europe. For water sterilization, start-up brands in the European Union (EU) and the USA have used Lextar’s UVC module in static sterilization and in faucets in dynamic sterilization to provide a safer water supply.
In addition to being used in consumer electronic products, Lextar says that its high-power UVC products are also suitable for crowded places that require long-term bacteriostatic suppression such as medical or research institutes and public places. The high-power UVC air-conditioning sterilization module – co-developed with Future Taiwan Advanced Electronics Pte Ltd – has now been applied to the negative-pressure wards of Taiwan medical institutions. The advantages of concentrated light and non-diffusion are beneficial for increasing sterilization efficiency, which can meet the requirement for a zero count of colonies detected and clean air while reducing the risk of infection and improving the quality of hospitalization for patients.
