Is ultraviolet radiation a concern for plasma lighting systems?
No, not if used as recommended. Plasma lighting systems produce ultraviolet (UV) radiation in addition to light, and luminaire manufacturers should use UV-absorbing glass to shield people and objects from radiated UV. Some manufacturers of plasma lighting systems provide recommendations on the specification of glass to be used (LUXIM 2010a).
NLPIP did not measure UV radiation from the tested plasma lighting systems because it was beyond the scope of this study.
