For customers looking for the highest levels of integration and customization, Excelitas offers custom designed UVC disinfection component and module solutions. Beyond customization, we offer key features such as power control, intensity measurements, beam shaping, closed-loop feedback, motion-activation, and a wide array of safety features to limit accidental exposure.

Excelitas has a field-proven history of supplying pulsed Xenon light sources into disinfection applications. With the ability to provide broad spectral distribution over the germicidal band, these pulsed xenon light sources ensure this energy will adversely affect most any pathogen. From these legacy technologies, we have developed the latest in UVC LED-based solutions that can be incorporated into a turnkey system with internal power regulation, monitoring and cooling. These products are offered through our OmniCure product line and are end-to-end stackable to offer a scalable and streamlined off-the-shelf solution.
