If you constantly improve on what is good, you can achieve perfection. An impressive example of this is the new generation of our MOONLIGHT, which combines metal halide and 4 powerful T-5 fluorescent lamps. The moon affects not only the ocean tides, science is forever coming up with new findings on just how much it influences life in the water. Only by understanding the interactions involved are we humans able to explain many behavioural patterns exhibited by the inhabitants of the seas. As developers and manufacturers with scientific aspirations, Giesemann Lichttechnik have used these findings to develop a light that introduces moonlight into the home aquarium.
The MOONLIGHT, the flagship model, simulates natural living conditions day and night, allowing you to observe your fish in the moonlight. Moonrise and moonset, and even the phases of the moon, pose no problem for the complex microprocessor control. They even thought of a cloud simulation. Functions: The moon not only determines the tides. Science always surprises us with new ideas as to how much impact the moon has on the underwater world. Only with an understanding of this interaction can we explain the behaviour of our sea dwelling creatures. As manufacturer with a scientific requirement from our customers, we have encapsulated this understanding and created lights that bring the moonlight into your home aquariums.
The new MOONLIGHT simulates the natural lighting requirements during the day and at night time so now you can even meet your fish in the moonlight. The different phases of the moon are simulated in exact detail using a complex microprocessor. They have even considered the simulation of clouds. With only a 5-watt power requirement during the moonlight phase, the new MOONLIGHT is economic to run and the amount of light delivered is exactly in accordance with that of the moon giving animals and plants the possibility to recover and relax or to wake up and hunt or reproduce.
The new MOONLIGHT comes with a stepless height adjustment as well as with a special power cord and a special UV-filter protects you and the inhabitants of your aquarium from too much solar radiation.The moon affects not only the ocean tides, science is forever coming up with new findings on just how much it influences life in the water. Pure Hightech: The new MOONLIGHT, the flagship model, simulates natural living conditions day and night, allowing you to observe your fish in the moonlight. Moonrise and moonset, and even the phases of the moon, pose no problem for the complex microprocessor control. The new MOONLIGHT combines the intensity and glitter lines of metal halide lighting with the power and colour of the multiple T5 tubes. The integrated computer allows you, to dim the four T-5 tubes individually. At the desired time the lighting starts up at minimum power and gradually reaches maximum performance according to your stipulated requirements. Then, again at the desired time, the system slowly reduces the output down to the minimum.
Not only does this offer the inhabitants of your aquarium optimum living conditions, it also cuts your electricity costs. You can also program a cloud simulation during which the lighting is reduced between 10 and 90 % intensity for a few minutes at random. The blue illuminated liquid crystal display provides clear indication of all functions and operating conditions. The user-friendly display provides information on all settings in as many as four languages. It even tells you when the various fluorescent and metal halide lamps need to be replaced. This new light technology offers a further marked increase in lighting performance.
