Hubbell Lighting, a world leader in lighting innovation, announced today it has commercially launched a series of visible light disinfection SpectraClean™ luminaires to the market.
Cooper Lighting Solutions is leveraging more than 35 years in UV-C lighting expertise from its parent company, Signify, to address the growing global need for the disinfection of air, surfaces and objects. Its UV-C lighting is well-proven and trusted as an effective disinfectant. This was recently validated in laboratory testing - Signify's UV-C light sources inactivated 99% of SARS-CoV-2 virus on a surface with an exposure time of 6 seconds.*
Data showing any safety effects in roadway lighting applications from substituting broad-spectrum LEDs for incumbent sodium or mercury vapor luminaires are limited. This presentation will provide an overview of a new PNNL study investigating whether converting to LED roadway lighting suggests any discernible influence on driving safety. PNNL is partnering with the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission and Virginia Tech Transportation Institute on this project that includes more than 60 municipalities in the Philadelphia region.
Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).
The Illuminating Engineering Society (IES, est. 1906) and the International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA, est. 1999) have partnered to assemble experts in the measurement of ultraviolet C-band emissions (UV-C) to develop American National Standards for the measurement and characterization of UV-C device performance.
