To control radiation and ensure full treatment success, precise UV-sensors can be used to monitor the dose. This either ensures more efficient treatment processes optimized in time and applied doses, regardless of changes in light-source efficacy because of e.g. dirt or dust, or just gives an alarm if requested pruifcation result cannot be achieved. Overdosing is prevented to minimize energy waste, accelerated aging, and higher stress to exposed materials. Condition monitoring and predictive maintenance is achieved by active tracking of UV light source aging.
Benefit from ams OSRAM’s established solutions for presence detection, tamper/misalignment detection or even smart access control as supportive safety measures when deploying invisible UV-C light in areas accessible by humans for upper air, active curtain or full room UV-C purification.
First, our cost-efficient 1D direct time-of-flight (dToF) based presence detection allows active scanning for any moving or static objects which should not be in room while treatment is active. This enables selective blocking or interruption of service in the case of unintended presence. Second, active detection of changes in positioning and orientation of the UV-C light source modules, monitoring sensors, or protective covers is possible. Third, smart biometric access control to tracking that no people are in the room during treatment or device maintenance other than trained and authorized personnel.
Please note that the effectiveness of the UV-C LED technology is significantly influenced by the specific implementation in the end application. Depending on the mode of operation, devices based on the UV-C LED technology emit highly concentrated visible and non-visible light which can be hazardous to the human eye and skin. Products which incorporate these devices have to follow applicable safety regulations.
