Welcome to the UV Tech Insights newsletter for July 14, 2022. While the effectiveness of ultraviolet disinfection mechanisms is established, the application of various technologies to real-world environments requires careful planning and design, as well as test methodologies for qualitative performance. We'll have more on the LM-92-22 standard for you in our upcoming July/August magazine. 

In this issue:

Lighting scientist Cliff Yahnke outlines factors impacting safe and effective implementation of environmental disinfection systems.

Continued education on standards and development of best practices may help assure facilities managers of the value of commercial UV deployments.

Luminus XFM-5050 UVC LEDs enable new disinfection applications by delivering more than 250 mW from a compact 5mm x 5mm package. Their compact size, high optical output at 270-280 nm, long lifetime and eco-friendliness enable the replacement and phase-out of mercury lamps.

Learn about a short-pulse test method used in electro-optical measurements of LEDs, which will be further applied to UV LEDs under LM-92-22.
LM-92-22, a joint IES/IUVA standard, should help drive consistency of characterization data for disinfection sources.
Understand the challenges of UV lighting and the need for standards and metrics, and compare disinfection methods to form a holistic view of germicidal applications.
A selection of ultraviolet systems delivering air, water, or surface disinfection shows the span of both conventional and emerging germicidal UV sources.
Houston-based illumiPure will connect UV-C, UV-A, and other pathogen-fighting technologies with the Finnish company’s protocol.
Companies that rushed UV-C disinfection products to market based on legacy lamp and LED sources are finding building owners and managers want to test the germicidal technology in a limited fashion.
Billed as a first-of-its-kind terminal equipment controller, the 75F Helio Node is bundled with five sensors and flexible mounting options for enhanced energy efficiency and indoor air quality (IAQ) capabilities.
When employees can bring their authentic selves to work, the result is a more productive environment.
