CrayoNano's CrayoLEDTM H-series Enters the Class of 100 mW and 5 % Efficiency Performance

CrayoNano's H-series enters the class of 100 mW and 5 % efficiency, with externally confirmed L70 >10,000 hours at 350mA

TRONDHEIM, Norway—13 March 2023— Today CrayoNano announces a performance improvement of our CrayoLEDTM H-series UV-C LED. Entering the class of 100 mW, 5 % wall-plug efficiency at a standard operating current of 350 mA, this LED is a game changer in the disinfection market, standing amongst the market leading suppliers.

The CrayoLEDTM is a high-performance UV-C LED that offers reliable and long-lasting solutions for demanding disinfection applications. The high-power performance class of 100 mW can effectively inactivate bacteria, viruses, and other illness-inducing pathogens in a relatively short amount of time, improving system efficiency and future disinfection automation.

Another key advantage of the CrayoLEDTM is its improved wall plug efficiency of 5 %. This means that the LED is more energy-efficient and generates less heat, resulting in a longer lifetime. The CrayoLEDTM has a L70, TM-21 extrapolated lifetime of more than 10,000 hours at 350 mA, a defining industry required standard. The CrayoLED would have an effective lifespan of up to 5-10 years in commercial and residential Point-of-Use (POU) and Point-of-Entry (POE) water disinfection systems. These systems typically use UV-C LEDs for several minutes per operation cycle, for a total annual usage of approximately 1,000-2,000 hours. The CrayoLEDTM provides a reliable and long-lasting solution for water disinfection.

The long lifetime and high-power output of 100 mW reduce the need for frequent replacement, facilitating the adoption of UV-C LED disinfection in municipal water treatment facilities. These facilities require reliable and powerful solutions to handle higher water flows and reduce maintenance needs. The combination of the CrayoLED’s UV-C LED longevity and performance makes it an efficient and effective solution for water treatment applications.

“Our dedication to continuous development and commitment to quality and performance has culminated in more than 30 % improvement since the product’s launch. Entering the performance class of 100 mW, 5 % wall plug efficiency, high drive current capacity without compromising our values of quality first—make the CrayoLEDTM a reliable, efficient, and robust solution, ideal to enable mass UV-C LED adoption into disinfection applications,” says Michael Peil, CRO. “With these results, we look forward to further characterization of our LEDs at a higher drive current capacity.”

These impressive results demonstrate that the CrayoLEDTM offers versatility through exceptional performance and reliability, making it an ideal choice for system integrators and product designers who require flexibility in their disinfection solutions. Whether needing higher power or longer lifetime, the CrayoLEDTM has the capabilities to meet application requirements without sacrificing quality or performance. With its advanced performance and durability, the CrayoLEDTM is an ideal solution for a wide range of applications that require effective pathogen inactivation.
