I've just finished with a group buy, and am planning another. This time, with a simpler design and yet still a "dimming" solution.
The fixture is similar to the run-of-the-mill China based black case setups you see in your local fish stores, and elsewhere (eBay, Craigs List, etc). And yes, these are similar... yet, with a twist. They are High power, cheap priced, 3 colors of LEDs and dimmable! (however, no controller/timer is included - you must use knobs to dim on top of unit).
They are 165W units, or (55) 3watt LEDs in one fixture.
... coverage is a 24" x 24" x 36" (or deeper) area per panel.
Great for deep tanks, or for those who like to mount their lights high above the water line!
LED COLORATION IS;
(27) 12,000K WHITE
(14) 460NM BLUE
(14) 440NM INDIGO (dark blue)
One 110V cord/switch, and one knob control; All White
One 110V cord/switch, and one knob control; All Blue, and All Indigo
Typical warranty of 2yrs manufacturer, with the ability to get spare LEDs and possibly drivers for local repair if needed. They also come with hanging kits, and 110V cords (6' long).
What's the difference between these, and other units on the market (eBay, Craigs, etc.etc)??
- Configuration (3 colors of LEDs)
- High power (165watts over the standard 112watt or 119watt)
- Dimmable (if they are too powerful, dim them to your needs)
- Low cost for custom fixtures
They look like (excuse the purple reflection, cases are black in color) ...click on picture for larger view...
I've got to order a minimum of (4) to get the good price...
(includes taxes, Western Union transfer fees and shipping via DHL)
It'll take 10 days for them to manufacture (due to custom color), 1 day for burn in/test, and 2-3 days for them to arrive on my doorstep. It's not fast... but for those who are patient, come good things.
I'll (personally) be ordering 2 as backups to my already new LEDs (and possibly for Reef friends).
Let me know as soon as possible. Any questions, I prefer a PM!
