ソウル半導体、自然光LEDの”SunLike”で世界初の高いアイセーフティ認証

韓国安山市–(BUSINESS WIRE)–(ビジネスワイヤ) — 世界的なLED (発光ダイオード)専業メーカーのSeoul Semiconductor Co., Ltd. (本社:韓国安山市、代表理事:李貞勲、以下「ソウル半導体」)は、太陽の光に最も近い光を発するLEDの”SunLike”が、光源の安全性に関するアイセーフティ認証でRG-1の評価を受け、最高レベルの安全性が認められたと明らかにした。 アイセーフティ認証は、LEDから発せられる波長を分析して、安全性に基づいて等級分けされる認証である。照明の安全性の優先度が非常に高い欧州地域では、アイセーフティ認証が不可欠であり、目で直接見たときに、視力に危険を及ぼす可能性のあるリスクグループ3 (RG-3)以下の光源については、完成品に警告文を記述することを義務化している。 SunLikeは、東芝マテリアル株式会社(本社:神奈川県横浜市、代表取締役社長:青木 克明)のTRI-R技術を応用した自然光LEDで、このたびアイセーフティ認証でRG-1の等級を受けた。 RG-1は、当該光源の下で一生生活を続けても生体学的な危険がない安
