OCReef XP-E® 72 Watt CREE™ LED Aquarium Light with (24) 3 Watt High Intensity LED's
The CREE™ LED is leading the LED lighting revolution with its unprecedented lighting-class brightness, efficacy, lifetime and quality of light. These lighting-class features enable the CREE™ LED to replace many traditional light sources and save money with energy-efficient light and long lifetimes.
Why should I choose CREE LEDs?
CREE™ is the leader in LED innovation and technology. CREE™ LEDs are constructed of such great quality, that they are being used by major companies worldwide for Aquarium Lighting, Computers, Cell Phones, Flat Screen Televisions, Digital Cameras, Satellites, Commercial Airliners, Aviation, Universities, and Homes. And that's just to name a few. You can't go wrong with a CREE™ LED Aquarium Light. After seeing this, you'll have to ask yourself, "What's in my LED Aquarium Light"?
Specifications / Optic Lens:
The 72 Watt CREE™ 3W LED Light Fixture using 80 degree optic lens gives an extreme light spread with penetration from 24 inches up to 48 inches of water depth. Is perfect for large to nano sized aquariums. The unit measures approx. 16 inches in Length x 6 inches in Width x 2 inches in Height (L x W X H). Weight: 10 lbs.
- Operating Frequency 50Hz/60Hz. The LED's are rated for over 50,000 hours, providing 5 years or more of maintenance free and eco-friendly use. Unlike Metal Halide bulbs that require costly annual replacements, due to their deteriorating output and unpredictable color drift. Specifications subject to change.
Outer Casing Cover Color:
The Black Color Outer Casing Cover is painted with a completely sealed finish, to prevent rust.
No Heat Increase:
Running these light fixtures over your aquarium will drastically reduce the aquariums overall operating temperature. Therefore, typically there is no need to use other heat removal apparatus, while running these lights. Running these light fixtures gives you a working environmental temperature - 20 to +30 c. If you plan on using this fixture with or around other lighting fixtures including fluorescent or metal halide, "no worry" because the fan, ensures the unit stays cool at all times.
As you introduce new corals to your tank, you do not need to reduce lighting hours, you can simply dial down the lighting until your new corals get accustomed to your tank. A minimum wavelength of around 430 nanometers (nm), or higher is the required wavelengths where photosynthetic efficiency is at its highest for symbiotic corals. The 72 Watt CREE™ LED Aquarium Light produces a spectrum of light giving a pure 455~465nm spectrum with no harmful UV radiation unlike Metal Halides and T5 Fluorescents. And with the power supply built into the powder coated dimmer box, makes for an easy and less clustered installation.
For reef aquariums 48 inches or 4 foot in length, fully stocked with corals, it's recommended to use 3 units minimum, either hung over the aquarium (with the included hanging kit), or placed on top of a glass aquarium top cover. For reef aquariums 48 inches or 4 foot lightly stocked with corals, fish only, fish only with live rock, and planted freshwater aquariums, you could run 2 units at a higher elevation to create a wider spread. PAR measures at a 48": Average of 270+, peak of 380+. Measurements are much greater as the depth of the aquarium decreases.
