Recently special LED’s have entered the market, which have the ability to generate ultraviolet light; UV-A LED’s.
These special LED’s form the heart of a new generation UV-A lamps; the ASTRON UV LED 15 Watt lamp.
The fact that the name of this new LED lamp mentions 15 Watt lies in the fact that this lamp replaces a traditional 15 Watt lamp and for this it only needs 11.5 Watts to offer the same UV-A output performance.
An improved UV-A tester is able to measure the level of the UV-A light given off by a UV-A lamp. Flying insects are drawn towards UV-A light with a specific wavelength peak of 365 nm
