UVC LED technology is advancing rapidly with new applications becoming commercially viable across a wide range of industries. This post will detail a new UVC LED lamp from ProPhotonix, the COBRA Clean FX1, including the key features of the lamp, the key applications it can be utilized in and a brief discussion of the benefits of using LEDs in a UVC application.
COBRA Clean FX1: 265nm UVC LED Line Light
The COBRA Clean FX1 is a UVC LED lamp with strong uniformity at 265nm, peak irradiance of 55mW/cm2, and peak energy density (dose) of 65 mJ/cm2. It is a fan-cooled UVC lamp with a compact form factor and, as with the other LED line lights in the COBRA series, is designed with LED technology.
COBRA Clean FX1 Key Features
- Compact, 265nm UVC LED lamp
- Peak irradiance of 55mW W/cm2
- Peak energy density (dose) of 65 mJ/cm2
- CE and UL certified
COBRA Clean FX1 Key Applications
The COBRA Clean FX1 can be utilized in water, surface, and air disinfection applications in the following industries:
- Laboratory and medical
- Packaging materials
- Industrial applications
- Food processing
Rapid Development Solution
ProPhotonix has developed this UVC LED lamp for rapid development in UVC disinfection applications. This line light can provide an ideal evaluation product for water, air and surface disinfection. UVC LED technology has shown to be effective against pathogens such as E. coli, L. innocua and COVID-19. The COBRA Clean FX1 has been designed for optimal pathogenic performance as the wavelength is set at 265nm, which has been shown to be the most promising wavelength for peak effectiveness. This reliable platform is configurable with various optical and electrical configurations. The COBRA Clean FX1 is also stackable, which means it is available in almost any length in 100mm increments. These features can be tailored for your application requirements, allowing for optimal system performance.
UVC LED Benefits
Traditionally mercury lamps were used for applications requiring UVC. UVC LEDs, however, offer significant benefits over traditional technology. These benefits include:
- Compact form factor
- Longer illuminator lifetimes
- Precise control
- Predictable light output
- Thermal management
- Environmentally friendly: ozone and heavy metal-free
