Anglia Components has expanded its range of Ultraviolet LED solutions through a new partnership with Bolb. The new range of components caters to the growing demand for sanitisation devices as lockdown lifts.
Bolb UVC LEDs boast industry-leading power output >100mW at 250mA drive currents for a single chip, and they have an industry-leading lifetime with an L70 of more than 3000 hours. These impressive results are obtained through a manufacturing process that provides efficient light extraction and superior wall plug efficiency of currently greater than 7.5%, with a technology entitlement far greater than that shortly. Bolb packages its UVC LEDs in the industry standard 3535 and 6060 packages. Still, they have also produced a range of modules around these packaged UVC LEDs that integrate single or multiple devices (arrays) onto a PCB complete with drivers and lenses to make it simple for customers to integrate UVC technology safely into their products.
Ling Zhou, co-founder and CEO of Bolb, said, “We are delighted to begin this partnership with Anglia, a respected supplier to the UK and Ireland. Bolb UVC LEDs are now being integrated into a new generation of portable and home appliances, medical devices and industrial processing equipment for the benefit of a healthier world. We look forward to assisting Anglia customers with such vital, and potentially life-saving, designs.”
Commenting on the partnership, John Bowman, marketing director at Anglia, added, “UVC LEDs are gaining attention because they provide robust, toxic-free disinfection. The addition of Bolb's exceptional products to Anglia's lineup is an important step as we look to offer customers innovative solutions for sterilisation that will play an important role in the post-COVID world.”
