I got three infractions for the stupidest crap in less than a week. The last one was for saying I wasn't going to be able to post on that thread any more! Apparently I'm one point away from getting punted. No big loss IMO.
Anyway, on to the info:
These can be purchased at Nanotuners/Nanocustoms (same company for those that are confused by this). We have a sponsorship in place, but my boss hasn't sent over the banner yet, which is why you don't see us in the sponsor section.
Here is a quick rundown of the features:
- E26/27 medium base socket (same as all household lamps)
- 90-240v AC input for worldwide use without converters
- Cree XR-E series LEDs
- Very efficient heastsink
- '12K', '20K', all blue, and all red color options available (new '20K' color temp coming soon too)
- All lamps available with 40 degree (standard), 60 degree or 80 degree optics
- High PAR levels with low power consumption
levels are high, but can be tailored to the needs of the tank with different optics and height of the lamp above the tank. Here are some PAR
plots that were taken on the 12K lamp. The 20K plots are the same, as color temperature doesn't affect PAR
levels like it does with other light sources.
14", 40 degree
20", 40 degree
30", 40 degree
14", 60 degree
20", 60 degree
30", 60 degree
14", 80 degree
20", 80 degree
30", 80 degree
Now, these numbers are taken in open air, so expect to see about a 10-20% increase in PAR
from focusing of surface agitation and internal tank reflection.\
I'll post some more pictures of the lamps when I have access to my Photobucket account (blocked at work).
