New Surface Mount Device Delivers Highest Power Output to a New Class
of Innovative Products
HAYWARD, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–RayVio
Corp., an advanced health and hygiene company, today announced that
it has launched a new series of ultraviolet (UV) LEDs with the highest
power output available from a small surface mount device (SMD)
footprint. RayVio’s leading technology enables the UV disinfection of
water and environments by fostering a new generation of powerful and
portable health and hygiene devices.
RayVio’s new series of UV LEDs are among the smallest commercially
available at a width of 6.5 millimeters, enabling unparalleled
flexibility to incorporate into a range of products from
self-disinfecting water bottles to hospital surface cleaners. The
technology provides up to 40 milliwatts at 100 milliamperes continuous
current operation in a single package, the most power available in that
size on the market. With its wavelength in the range of 280 to 290
nanometers and its high power density, RayVio’s LEDs deactivate the DNA
of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens, thereby preventing disease.
“RayVio’s innovative new form factor brings the protective power of
ultraviolet light to a galaxy of innovative new products,” said Dr.
Robert C. Walker, CEO of RayVio. “We’re facing serious global challenges
around hospital-acquired infections and contamination of the food and
water supply. This new technology marks an important step in providing
peace of mind to billions of consumers around the world.”
UV light is widely used
to protect against germs in water, surfaces and air, and can also aid
in treating skin diseases including psoriasis, eczema, rickets and
jaundice. However, traditional UV light sources are bulky, fragile and
contain toxic mercury. RayVio’s UV LEDs are portable and compact and can
be used safely across a range of applications, from cleaning water tanks
in home humidifiers to disinfecting water at the faucet. RayVio is
working with partners across the globe to incorporate its line of UV
LEDs into a new generation of products and applications.
Coupled with a hemispherical quartz lens, RayVio’s new UV LEDs provide
precise beam shape, enabling uniform light distribution over a large
area. RayVio UV LED emitters are offered in a range of wavelengths,
power levels and easy-to-use mounting designs. They also offer industry
leading thermal resistance at 6°C per watt, are RoHS (Restriction of
Hazardous Substances) compliant, and are manufactured in a precision
high-tech facility in Silicon Valley, with additional high volume
manufacturing partners around the world to meet soaring global demand.
RayVio will exhibit its technology at the Association
for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology Annual
Conference (APIC 2016) on June 11 through 13 in Charlotte, North
Carolina. Product samples and a wide range of application support are
available through sales@RayVio.com.
