The UV Spectrum contains all the wavelength from 100nm to 400nm , generally divided into three types:
Dental treatment instrument and detecting forgeries use are the UV LED's early application , but the performance, cost and durability, efficiency and product life extension make the use of Ultraviolet LED increase rapidly . The Ultraviolet LED application at present includes: an optical sensor and instrument (230-400nm), ultraviolet authentication, bar code (230-280nm), sterilization for surface ponding (240-280nm), identification and body fluid detection and analysis (250-405nm), protein analysis and drug invention (270-300nm), medicine, light therapy (300-320nm), polymer and ink printing (300-365nm), detecting forgeries (375-395nm), surface sterilization / Beauty sterilization (390-410nm). In the coming months and years, there will be further improvement, especially in efficiency scheme.
The use of Ultraviolet LED will grow faster. Special cost-effectives election for a particular use of UV LED program or using standard techniques, from the two aspects of cost and performance , the former is often more practical. Ultraviolet LED are used for array in many cases , and light beam and light intensity consistency is important in the whole array . If there is a supplier needs to provide the entire array for specific application , the total bill of the material will reduce, the number of suppliers will reduce too. and the array can also be tested before delivery to the design engineer, In this way, the number reduction of transactions can save engineering and purchasing costs, and provides efficient solutions to meet the requirements of special terminal application.
Make sure to find suppliers who can provide customized cost-effective scheme according to your application requirements. For example, one has ten-year-experience in PCB design, custom optical devices, ray tracing and tooling supplier, will be able to provide a range of options for the special solution of the most cost-effective.
