Tesla® X Series 144 Watt CREE™ LED Light with (48) 3 Watt High Output LED's
Designed to work over for 4 foot aquariums. (48 inches in length)
Detailed Description of Intelligent Programmable Controller:
From a functional standpoint, these systems offer maximum controllability, with 4 predefined programmable light stages, including: (Sunrise, Daylight, Sunset, and Moonlight). In addition, there is an intensity level setting for each mode, which simulates the natural cycle of the sun/moon... designing your lighting schedule made easy!
See the below example, of the Dawn to Dusk photoperiod.
1. Beginning the day, (e.g. wake-up phase) with 0% white led light, 2% blue led light, and 50% moonlight, for approximately a period of 1 hr.
2. Starts entering more of a dawn phase, whereas 30% white led light is introduced, with an increase of the blue led light to 10%, and moonlight to 30%
3. Starts entering into a more normal daytime phase, which is along the lines of 100% white led light, 40% blue led light, and 0% moon light.
The major benefit of this, is that it brings out the most vivid colors, emphasizing certain fluorescent colors at certain times of the day, and thus constantly presenting an ever changing vision to onlookers. Isn't this part of the reason we got into keeping a saltwater coral reef aquarium in the first place!

If you disassemble most other LED units sold on the market to date, you will notice that after 2 to 4 years many will most likely begin to have integrity issues, like internal corrosion. You can see that all use mass produced, inferior PCBs, drivers, and electronics, that will vastly lose efficiency, often 40% just in the first 2 years. If you disassemble one of our units, you'll see the clean sealed welds, the plated connectors, protection tubes, and the all aluminum superior APCB. Uses passive cooling system. APCB Aluminum Circuit Board and thickened heat sink.
The manufacturer will warrant the parts against defects for a period of 12-months from the date of purchase. If a defect exists during the warranty period, the manufacturer will replace the defective part. This light was designed to be modular and components can be very easily replaced as needed.
