Kessil A360W
Kessil has announced an externally controllable version of the popular Kessil A350W.
 
The A360W wide lens version and A360N narrow lens vesrsion have a slightly greater output in the balanced color spectrum setting and a significantly greater output when tuned toward the blue or white ends of the spectrum. Unlike the A350W that has separate controls for the blue LEDS and white LEDs the A360W has one control for color balance and one control for brightness. The A360W also has an Outboard Controller Input allowing you to control both the brightness and color temperature from a Neptune Apex or Reef Keeper 2 Aquarium Controller.  The A360W can also daisy chain up to four units so a single Kessil can control the others or an outboard controller can control up to four Kessil A360W’s at the same time. With the Neptune Apex controller (and I believe the Reef Keeper 2 as well) you can set the light to start with a low intensity bluer light, ramp up during the day to a whiter full brightness, and then reverse towards the evening.  Retail pricing on the new Kessil A360W will be $449.99 and you can pre-order these at Aquarium Specialty and orders will begin shipping no later than the week of March 25th.

PR72

Yesterday we ran another T5 vs. LED comparison but this time we put the T5 lighting up against another Orphek product.  This time we compared the existing T5 lighting to that of the Orphek PR72.  This exhibit is about 200 gallons at the same public aquarium.  Below is a short video that was shot with an iphone 4.  After the break we will post another video clip of the 55,000 gallon display with the Orphek DIF-100 pendant.

 

ABOUT THE ORPHEK PR72 LED PENDANT:

The Orphek PR72 Reef LED Pendant is a member of the new PR72 family of LED Pendants.  Its design goal was to aid hobbyists in growing beautiful corals in medium sized  aquariums or larger systems when multiple units are used,  and coral fragment tanks without relying on energy wasting metal halide or low PAR florescent tubes.

The LEDs were selected from the same LED bins used for the PR156XP fixture to duplicate the PUR lighting spectrum which is beneficial and necessary for growing corals, clams, and marine plants.  The highly efficient Mean Well LED Drivers use on the PR156XP and DIF series pendants are used here as well, no shortcuts were taken. The PR72 Reef LED Pendant will produce High PAR/PUR levels. The pendents offer plenty of PAR/PUR for growing all types of corals because the light energy is concentrated on the needed and desirable PUR spectrum while eliminating LEDs that emit non-essential wavelengths.
