It is reported that ANSI / IES RP 44-21 has been adopted as a new standard for UV sterilization irradiation by IES (Illuminating Engineering Society).

(New York, February 15, 2022) The Lighting Engineering Society (IES) recently introduced a standard, ANSI / IES RP-44-21 Recommended Practice: UV Sterilization Irradiation. This new standard is UVGI for disinfection . Addresses the use of, the potential dangers of humans, the potential impact on materials and plants, UVGI technology, and safety measures and precautions.

“Of course, there is a renewed interest in the use of bactericidal UV radiation for disinfection purposes, ” says Dr. David H. Sulini, Chairman of the Photobiology Commission . Since COVID-19 is unlikely to be our last pandemic, we will use UVGI technology more extensively as an important tool to mitigate and prevent the spread of more current and future viruses.

“IES is on the cutting edge by setting new standards that truly fulfill our mission to further innovate lighting professionals and improve lives through the quality of light, ” said IES Standard Director, Brian Libel. Included in the set of standards for lighting applications and published under the consensus of the IES Photobiology Committee, this document is relevant to disinfection by germicidal UV irradiation because UVGI can be used to disinfect contaminated air, water and surfaces. It is essential for some lighting professionals.

“A filter is required even at 222 nm if irradiation to humans is a prerequisite. “—It can be interpreted as “Care222 is the most promising candidate for UV sterilization light source in occupied space”

Currently, the most effective and safest way to fight against COVID-19 is far uvc 222nm technology.

Care222 is a new disinfecting light source(far uvc 222nm technology) that, even though not harmful to the skin or eyes of humans or animals, deactivates bacteria and viruses in the same manner as conventional ultraviolet sanitizers.

It can be installed in a high location, such as on the ceiling, to irradiate its entire surroundings. This makes it possible to deactivate or eliminate a wide variety of viruses and bacteria both in the air and on environmental surfaces. 

Care222 uses an excimer lamp (a mercury-free UV excimer light source produced by Ushio especially for outputting monochromatic ultraviolet with a primary wavelength of 222 nm) in combination with a special optical bandpass filter (200 to 230 nm) which passes only ultraviolet wavelengths that have no harmful effect on people.

Ushio holds exclusive rights to utilization of the key technology, which was patented by Columbia University (New York, NY) in 2012.

My Lumens Artemis Far UVC Disinfection Devices equipped with Care222 module(filtered far uvc 222nm technology) developed by Ushio, Japan.
