Disinfection lighting has been used commercially with mercury vapor lamps since the 1950’s. Today the entire industry is being remade with the advent of UV-LED sources. Formerly being limited to disinfection in unoccupied spaces or upper-room applications, now LED products are being commercialized for use in occupied spaces with duty cycle as long as 24/7. Understanding the science of both UV and Visible Light disinfection products helps us make the correct decision for our facilities. Please note the lighting devices being discussed here are not intended to be used as medical devices and are not registered as such under any applicable laws. Finally, 3rd party standards and testing will be presented so that you can better evaluate product compliance to exposure limits as defined by IEC 62471 and American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH®) TLVs ® for human exposure to UV
