Ecotech marine has expanded the technology found in the standard Radion XR30w model; the Radion XR30w Pro represents the cutting edge in LED technology, power, spectrum and spread. Utilizing EcoTech’s TIR lenses and outfitted with 42 top-bin LEDs in eight different colors and running off of six channels, the XR30w Pro gives you unsurpassed full spectral output from 405nm (Ultra Violet) to 660nm (Hyper Red). The XR30w Pro’s premium LED’s provide proficient and precise light output, while six channels of control allow users to adjust each color group individually.
The Radion XR30W Pro is ideal for aquarists who want to accomplish the highest PAR ratings, have a deep aquarium or want wide light spread with broad spectral coverage. Its lighting system diffuses well into deep tanks where it is difficult for local lights to reach. Some corals that prefer dwelling at the deep end can benefit well from this lighting system. Even if you own a wide sized aquarium this light is efficient to light even the darkest corner of the tank. Its build-up is actually for the purpose of giving maximum benefit to large sized tanks; be it depth wise or width.
This product was unveiled at MACNA in September last year and since then those who have used it have reported excellent results. It has been reviewed by many enthusiastic aquarists and all their views about this lighting system are positive in every way. Price is a bit high but as we always say reef keeping is a little pricey if you want to achieve hindrance-free result. This product was much awaited by enthusiasts who want the best system for their reef aquariums and when it hit the market, buyers could not wait for any price decrease.
The Radion XR30w Pro brings you EcoTech Marine’s new Total Internal Reflection (TIR) lens, which directs more of each LED cluster’s output directly into in your tank. TIR lenses boost peak PAR levels by up to 45% and total (average) PAR levels by up to 23% – without compromising spread or consuming any additional power. Its water resistant cooling fan is an awesome feature you will hardly find in any other lighting fixture. Its full spectrum output from ultraviolet (405nm) to hyper-red (660nm) illuminates the reef tank in the best possible way giving a feel of natural lights to corals of different types.
Its special hanging and rail kit system is designed to optimize looks while mounting it on top or teaming it up with extra Radion fixtures. Its sleek design and lightweight anodized aluminum and steel makes it easy to install anywhere and look like some assets added to your tank rather than just a necessity. The lighting fixture does not shadow the natural look of your tank; it simply blends with the charm of its simplicity. Its contemporary design adjusts well in most aquariums and contributes to the glow in water. Hanging and rail kit fixtures of EcoTech can be ordered separately or purchased at local stores.
You can now control your aquarium lighting though EcoSMART live. Its controller web interface is compatible with Mac and Windows and through this users can enjoy EcoSMART’s cutting-edge controls and user-friendly design on a computer or tablet with an internet connection. New features are put into service automatically, with no toil for the user. However, a Radion must be connected via USB to a computer running the Connection Manager in order to control your lights from the web.
