Crystal IS Introduces Optan Surface Mount Device

Crystal IS’s newest Optan product is a surface mount device (SMD). Like other Optan offerings, the high-performance UVC LED is based on native Aluminum Nitride (AlN) substrates, proven to overcome limitations of other UVC LEDs in the market. For manufacturers of instruments, Optan SMD:

- Enables more effective and efficient biofilm and biofouling control. Damage resulting from bacteria and biofilms has wide ranging impact across industries which is estimated to cost several hundred billion dollars annually.

- Supports Total Organic Carbon (TOC) monitoring in water. High levels of TOC can degrade industrial water purification systems – reducing semiconductor yields, contaminating pharmaceutical batches and damaging power and steam generation equipment.

- Can be used as a low voltage source of UVC light for calibration of cameras, photodetectors, etc.

Samples are available immediately. Optan SMD is a long life solution, with low power consumption, giving users an increase in intervals for instrument maintanence. It’s also environmentally friendly, which is essential for when many other solutions are being phased out due to toxicity concerns.
