AN005 - Germicidal Power

Implications of the spectral response of solid-state sources, such as UVC LEDs, when designing disinfection systems.

Klaran UVC LEDs

By Klaran

UVC LEDs provide efficient, cost effective, and an environmentally friendlier alternative to traditional UV lamp technology. This application note examines the differences in emission spectra between mercury lamps and UVC LEDs; how this impacts the design of disinfection systems; and most accurate method for calculating the germicidal power required for systems.
