LED Light Disinfects Its Environment

LG Innotek unveils what it’s calling 'Visible Disinfection Lighting', a functional LED light source that gives the effect of sterilization by sunlight with the indoor light.  The LED realizes the effect of eco-friendly sterilization, i.e., the method used to dry household goods and blankets under the sun, in indoor spaces at any time.


Bacteria become extinct when exposed to sunlight for a long time due to a material called 'porphyrin' inside of bacteria that destroys its cells by reacting with certain wavelengths of sunlight. The company’s solution maximizes the use of a 405-nm wavelength, which porphyrin reacts to.


Sensors 2019 Hits Silicon Valley June 25-27!

Join 7,000+ engineers this June in San Jose at the sensor industry’s biggest event! With 65+ Technical Sessions, 100+ Leading Speakers, 10 new and updated tracks, and 300+ Interactive Exhibits, there’s more opportunity than ever to connect with this booming industry and the technologies driving it. See thousands of the newest technologies in action, learn about the latest applications, and develop invaluable partnerships at the only event dedicated to sensors, connectivity, and systems.


Reportedly, 'Visible Disinfection Lighting' can easily sterilize an indoor space without having to use any chemicals. According to the result of the sterilization power test on Hygienic Light LED by Korea Conformity Laboratories (KCL), 99.9% of escherichia coli get killed.


The product does not harm the human body, its sterilization function can be used without any worries in places where many people pass by such as kitchens or restrooms. The product is verified that it does not have any negative effect on the eyes or skin, from the Photobiological Safety Standard (IEC62471) of International Electrotechnical Commission, an international standard for electrical technology.
