UV LED

by CurlyRed on Sun Sep 29, 2019 8:23 pm

Hello,
I was curious about the uv leds. How safe are they? I did not see any information on the power emitted by them, or exposure time limits for skin or eyes. Would that information be available (for example on the 400 nm led)?
Thank you.

Are you talking about these: https://www.adafruit.com/product/1793

If so, here's the datasheet: https://cdn-shop.adafruit.com/datasheet ... asheet.pdf

Luminous intensity is around 350 mcd.

No idea about safety.
