  • Patent number: 11006498
    Abstract: A UV-C anti-fouling device that is coupled to power source using a single power supply wire. The device is AC powered, and is capacitively coupled to the conductive surface that is being protected, such as the hull of a ship. The device includes a plurality of UV-C LEDs that are either powered during half-cycles of the AC supply, or powered via individual rectifier circuits, such as a diode bridge, or Graetz bridge. A light guide optically extends the light from the UV-C LEDs. The arrangement is robust against shorts and opens, as well as external inflicted damage.

  • Patent number: 10986716
    Abstract: The anti-fouling load arrangement uses the hull of a vessel as one plate of a capacitor to capacitively couple an electrode of the anti-fouling load arrangement to a power source within the hull. The other electrode of the anti-fouling load arrangement receives current from the power source via a wire, or via the conductivity of the sea water, which may be enhanced by the presence of a conductive plate on the surface of the water. A plurality of anti-fouling load arrangements may be applied to the hull as flexible tiles, or rigid tiles that conform to the shape of the hull.
