The development of the ultraviolet LED street lamp for mosquito traps in Malaysia
Source: Date:2018-08-07

University of Malaya (University) scientists have made use of solar panels and the principle that mosquitoes are easily attracted by light and human scents, to create energy saving and energy saving LED mosquito traps. It can not only combat the local severe dengue fever, but also successfully combine public health with the use of renewable energy. Chong Wen Tong, a scientist, developed a LED street lamp with an mosquito trap to combat local dengue disease, which is powered by solar energy and wind power. Chong said that the mosquito trap was caught using the characteristics of mosquito like human odor, and the mosquitoes were easily attracted by ultraviolet rays, and the system also integrated weak ultraviolet and fan suction. The ultraviolet light is produced by the reaction of the titanium dioxide that is produced by the reaction of the photocatalyst on the trap, and then produces the carbon dioxide produced by the human being exhaled. After the mosquito is successfully decoed, it will be inhaled by the fan to the bottom of the net, so it can not escape. In addition, in order to avoid the shading effect and maximize the acquisition of energy, the solar panel is designed above the system, and the vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) is covered by a Omni-Directional Guide Vane; ODGV, and the line is designed above the light, suitable for water logging. The area is used. The British guardian (TheGuardian) points out that 8 street lights have been set up in the school campus and in the Kuala Lumpur City, the research team and the 1 companies have completed the licensing contracts, and the first street lights are ready to be commercialized. According to the WHO (WHO), the outbreak of dengue fever in Malaysia rose to 19% in 2015, and 96 thousand cases were reported, and the number of dengue deaths in the same year has also increased, and 162 people have increased to 282 from the month of 1~11 in 2014.
