Welcome to LEDs Magazine’s UV Tech Insights for Dec. 8, 2022. Last month I mulled over the quieter flow of UV-related news from the LED and solid-state lighting community and covered the most-popular UV articles in that edition — those published in 2022 as well as a few that continue to gain visibility with readers due to their continued relevance as the industry considers the market, evaluates the technology roadmap, and develops products geared toward specific purification and disinfection applications.
As we saw the debut of LM-92-22 this year, and our industry contacts covered that process extensively in our Editor’s Pick story below, perhaps it is a not-so-bold prediction to say that we’ll hear a lot more from the Illuminating Engineering Society, International Ultraviolet Association, and National Institute of Standards and Technology representatives involved in those efforts going into 2023 and 2024. I suspect greater adherence to best practices and benchmarks for both component and finished system testing will clarify the market — pointing to what disinfection and sanitization solutions can fulfill manufacturer claims as well as end-customer expectations for safety and performance.
