Montreal, Canada (prsubmissionsite) January 9, 2020 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is featuring an in-depth Technical View from François Mirand, EMEA Technical Director at Future Lighting Solutions, on the adoption of UV LEDs in the latest issue of Future Technology Magazine (FTM).

“One battle is already over,” writes Mirand. “The LED has defeated conventional visible light-source technologies in every important indoor and outdoor general lighting application. But what about applications for invisible light in the ultraviolet part of the spectrum?”

The advantages of LEDs over conventional lighting include a small light-emitting surface and small overall package size, long operating life, low maintenance and repair costs, low-voltage operation and power consumption, tight control of the wavelength of the emitted light, and freedom from harmful chemical components.

Mirand explores the various ways that the same characteristics that have made LEDs so attractive for general lighting can be applied to UV lighting applications, including curing, disinfection, chemical analysis and synthesis.

“With the support of Future Lighting Solutions’ optical technology experts and software tools, designers of UV lighting equipment can now use the latest UV LEDs in confidence, benefiting from the space, cost and power savings promised by this technology,” Mirand writes.

Future Technology Magazine is the flagship publication of Future Electronics, and is geared toward engineers and buyers looking to keep up with the latest developments in the industry. FTM comes out eight times per year, and each issue is packed with new product information, application notes, and detailed technical views from Future’s Advanced Engineers and other industry experts.
