Sensorex Evaluates Crystal IS UVC LEDs

Crystal IS UVC LEDs offers design freedom over mercury-based lamps

Sensorex, a manufacturer of sensors for water applications, has evaluated Crystal IS UVC LEDs as a light source replacement to mercury-based lamps.

Testing confirmed that brighter, longer lifetime UVC LEDs were a significant contribution to a UVT monitoring instrument that is able to achieve full intensity instantly; optimises UV disinfection dosage guaranteeing that systems are not under- or over-dosing water and reveals cost savings greater than the one-time cost of purchasing the UVT monitor.

"With Crystal IS, Sensorex can manufacture state-of-the-art sensors for water monitoring" says Larry Felton, CEO of Crystal IS. "Their willingness to test and implement new light sources proves why they continue to be a market leader."

The Crystal IS UVC LED allows manufacturers to fully exploit the power of UV-based technology to improve productivity, increase accuracy and create greater flexibility in product designs. Crystal IS UVC LED technology, made possible by the unique, low defect AlN substrate, delivers superior light output, better spectral quality and best-in-class reliability and lifetimes, a game changer for environmental monitoring, life sciences and analytical instrumentation. 

"The small footprint, long lifetime and low power consumption if Crystal IS deep UV LEDs is ideal for the UVT-LED product," said Dan Shaver, new business manager at Sensorex. "This makes for a versatile product with extremely stable readings in all conditions, over an extended lifetime."

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
