Targus Announces Availability of its UV-C LED Disinfection Light to Automatically Disinfect High-Touch Surfaces

Anaheim, Calif. — June 29, 2023 – Targus®, the number one laptop case brand in the US and Canada1 and a leader in laptop cases and mobile computing accessories, today announced that its CES® 2021 Innovation Awards Honoree2, the UV-C LED Disinfection Light, is now available for sale. This essential no-touch solution helps reduce pathogens on device surfaces by utilizing UV-C Light technology, which breaks down the DNA of microorganisms. 

Sleek, modern, and lightweight, the Disinfection Light is designed to stand between your keyboard and monitor on the desktop to automatically disinfect the surfaces of keyboards, mice, and other items within the disinfection range3, reducing the need for manual intervention, cleaning, or touching.  

“Maintaining a clean workspace is increasingly important post-pandemic as businesses move back to in-office and hybrid work environments,” says Mike Sexton, Sr. Director of Global Product Management & Development, Targus. “Our UV-C LED Disinfection Light delivers the perfect low maintenance, automated disinfection solution for individual workstations to eliminate pathogenic microorganisms on critical high-touch surfaces of items like keyboards, mice, and tablets at the office and at home.” 

The UV-C LED Disinfection Light effectively kills or inactivates pathogenic microorganisms. Third-party laboratory testing verified efficacy against Flu Virus (H1N1 Influenza), Staph (Staphylococcus aureus) Bacteria, Pneumonia (Klebsiella pneumoniae) Bacteria, and MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) Bacteria. The Targus UV-C LED Disinfection Light runs for 5 minutes, every hour, to clean the active disinfection area. When the disinfection cycle begins, the light emits a purple ambient hue, indicating that it is in use. 

AC-powered, the disinfecting occurs automatically, so there is no manual cleaning schedule to maintain. Manual cleaning, however, can be initiated with the press of a button, allowing 15 seconds for the individual to leave the active area. There is a built-in auto shut-off safety feature that utilizes motion sensors. Should any motion be detected within the safety zone4, outside of the active cleaning area, or if the device senses any activity within the safety zone, the UV-C LEDs will be automatically disabled. After 5 minutes of inactivity, the Light will resume its disinfection cycle. 

The UV-C LED Disinfection Light (AWV339TT) can be purchased in the US on Targus.com and through authorized resellers.
