Silanna UV shares Photonics West booth with new distribution partner MarktechAt the SPIE Photonics West 2024 exhibition in San Francisco, CA, USA (30 January–1 February), UV-C LED maker Silanna UV of Brisbane, Australia is sharing booth #237 with Marktech Optoelectronics Inc of Latham, NY, USA (a designer and manufacturer of optoelectronics components and assemblies), denoting the start of Marktech commencing distribution of Silanna’s new 235nm and 255nm UVC LEDs, which are said to enable safer, more eco-friendly, lower-power germicidal UV solutions, and chemical or material sensing. “Marktech Optoelectronics is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of UV, visible, near-infrared and short-wavelength infrared (SWIR) emitters and detectors. With over 38 years of experience, they’ve assisted customers in designing best-in-class solutions for a variety of applications,” comments Silanna UV’s managing director Rob Lobban. “The partnership with Silanna UV isn’t just a collaboration; it’s a strategic alliance to deliver cutting-edge far-UVC solutions to the world,” he adds. “Silanna UV believes this partnership can revolutionize germicidal UV and chemical sensing by harnessing the two companies’ expertise.”
Innovative UVC LEDs enable new applicationsAt Photonics West, Silanna UV is showing UVC products including the SF1 235nm series and SN3 255nm series, which are making new UV products and applications possible in fields such as sterilization, water and gas sensing, and instrumentation. These UVC LEDs are available in flat or dome (parabolic) lens SMD format, or in TO-cans ball lens packages. The SMD packages are a small footprint component with two lens options that provide wide or narrow UV coverage angles suitable for a variety of sensing and germicidal applications. The TO-can (Transistor Outline) format consists of a hermetically-sealed package, protecting sensitive components, with a ball lens that creates a narrow UV beam angle for the high irradiance required in most sensing applications. Marktech can also provide Silanna’s 235nm and 255nm LEDs in custom packaging.
Partnership to broaden customer options“We are very excited to collaborate with Silanna to expand our UVC product offerings via the Silanna Safe UVC solutions product portfolio,” says Marktech’s CEO Mark Campito. “With almost four decades of providing optoelectronic solutions, Marktech has the expertise to identify and capitalize upon industry-changing technology such as Silanna UV’s innovative 235nm and 255nm UV LEDs,” he adds. “It is the perfect complement to our own wide range of optoelectronics product offerings.” See related items:
