Kopp Glass Eases UV-LED Product Selection with Its Revised UV-LED Product Database

Kopp Glass, Inc. announces a new release of its UV LED Product Database. With hundreds of new UV LED's available each year, researching and comparing the various options for a project can be tedious and time-consuming. To streamline the selection process, Kopp Glass updated its UV LED Product Database.

The new sortable database provides specification data on:
•    Peak Wavelength
•    Product Type (Chip, COB, SMD, T-Type)
•    Product Code
•    Radiant Flux
•    Forward Currant
•    Forward Voltage
•    Emission Angle

Kopp Glass' new database now include over 1,380 UV LED products from 27 manufacturers—including products from industry leaders such as Seoul Viosys and SemiLEDs. That is an increase of 97% over last year's database. This UV LED product selection resource has become an industry standard that assists engineers and new product developers in identifying the LED best suited for unique application and performance goals.

Working to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, industries are broadening the use of ultraviolet light for sterilization and disinfection. Along with accelerated adoption in other applications—like medical phototherapy, horticultural lighting, and UV curing—UV LED technology is continually advancing. UV LEDs, especially in the UVC range, are at a higher demand. In this time of urgent product development and resultant market growth, Kopp's UV LED Product Database eases the selection process to expedite new product time to market.

UV LEDs are known to offer significant energy, cost, and space savings when compared to traditional lighting technologies like mercury vapor or high-pressure sodium bulbs. However, designing with UV LEDs brings an entirely new set of challenges. The first step when designing a new device is to evaluate and select an optimal UV LED that meets application requirements. Refer to this comprehensive resource for vital details needed to make pragmatic decisions when choosing a UV LED product.

While Kopp Glass does not manufacture LEDs, Kopp Glass has over 90 years of expertise in manufacturing custom glass products that are used to optimize light output, resulting in differentiated, high-performing lighting products. – So, Kopp Glass knows what it needs!
