Vertex Illumina 360 LED Lighting Fixture (36 Inch)

Vertex Illumina 360 LED Lighting Fixture (36 Inch)

$2599.95 CDN

Inventory Status: Backordered


The SR360 series features more intense Cree XTE LED's for deeper aquariums, or aquarists that want an even brighter LED Fixture.

The Illumina is unlike any other LED lighting fixture on the market, single handedly redefining what is possible for total aquarium illumination solutions.

Underneath the Illumina's sleek, ultra thin exterior are the highest grade LEDs, available, providing unbelievably powerful lighting at extraordinarily low levels of energy consumption. Combining brains with beauty, the technology behind the Illumina allows for an almost endless array of programmable possibilities - sunsets, sunrises, midday scenarios, weather simulations, and much more.

Controlled wirelessly by the controller or your PC, the Illumina allows for the lights to be manipulated by color group, modules, auxiliary modules, and programmed custom groups, for unsurpassed levels of control.

The other secret to Illumina innovation is the Total Modular System. This revolutionary system allows for ever part of the Illumina to be easily removed and replaced without wiring or soldering. You will be able to upgrade the Vertex Illumina effortlessly to keep up with new LED releases. Removing and replacing parts can be done with a snap.

Available in 1' to 6' fixtures, these hand made-in-Austria units provide the highest quality yet seen in the aquarium lighting industry. Never before has an LED device been capable of growing any species of coral while generating such a small carbon footprint consuming almost less than 50% energy compared to most other methods available to illuminate a reef tank. The Illumina's power speaks for itself; its ability to overpower high Kelvin 400w MH bulbs ran on electronic ballasts can be seen by the naked eye.
