36 inch 2x96 Watt Current USA PowerCompact Orbit Fixture Information


Product Manuals & Documentation

Welcome to Orbit, the 24-hour lighting revolution. For those who are ready, our SunPaq™ Dual Daylight and Dual Actinic come together with our Lunar Light in one sleek, fan-cooled fixture. With individual bulb wattages from 40 to 130 watts, Orbit offers the leading technologies in an integrated system that works around the clock. That`s one small step to take for a gigantic leap in performance.
  • The most complete 24-hour lighting system
  • Highest output of any lighting system
  • 4 lamps in 2
  • European look
  • Lunar lights every 12"
  • First-Ever 130 watt Lamp 48" Orbit Extreme
  • Includes Docking Mounts
  • Parabolic Reflector
Exquisite Features
A breakthrough in aquatic lighting technology, the Orbit incorporates both daytime and nighttime lighting sources for the ultimate 24-hour lighting solution. Built-in Moon White Lunar Lights (every 12") cast a crisp moon glow for optimum nocturnal simulation and nighttime viewing. The pro-grade Orbit has all of the features that advanced hobbyists demand and their friends will marvel at.

Dual SunPaq™ Enhanced
Industry-first breakthrough technology from Current creates the ultimate lighting spectrum by blending two color temperatures into one lamp. We incorporated a proprietary blend of phosphors from Nichia, the world`s leading phosphor manufacturer. We didn`t stop there, the SunPaq lamps feature the industry`s only 18-Karat gold plated pins for maximum conductivity and corrosion resistance as well as Philips brand filaments. A German parabolic reflector, coupled with our revolutionary dual phosphor SunPaq lamps, produces stunning output—the highest in the industry.

European Design
Sleek, contoured European design, great for any application, enhances the appearance of your aquarium both inside and out. Docking mounts are included for suspension above your aquarium, making feeding convenient and completing the ultra-modern look.

Superior Driving System
High power factor electronic driving system unleashes the power of the SunPaq lamps while preserving and extending lamp life. The patented circuitry inside each ballast ensures consistent high performance and low energy consumption. A 3.15" high-CFM fan quietly cools the ballast and lamps for peak performance. Maximum thermal reduction is achieved by strategic placement of the ballast in relation to the lamps allowing the fans to perform efficiently and quietly.

Comments: I have used this fixture for a few years. For the money, it really is good lighting. I like it. Compact fluorescents sometimes get a bad rap. Not true. They work well. I keep clams with this set up no problem.

Comments: Have had this fixture on my QT tank for nearly 2 years. Not enough light to sustain med-high light corals for very long, but plenty for everything else. Functionally adequate, except for the fact that the fan is not very quiet, and has actually gotten louder (chattering) over time. I think Current USA sells replacement fans perhaps for this very reason? All together, OK - but expensive for what it is. For not much more you could get a decent T5 fixture with individual reflectors that would put out a LOT more light.

Comments: I purchased this for my 125 gallon freshwater tank. It's like I have a new tank now. The lights have brought out all kinds of color in my cichlids. I agree that the fan should blow upward rather than to the side, but it's not a problem where I have my tank. They do have significant heat output, but the elevated design and fan help. Still, my tank went up 1 or 2 degrees. When I set it up, one of the moonlight LED's was not working. I called MD customer service and they shipped me a new LED to install right away, so it was no big deal. Overall, I think it's a great product and I would buy it again. I'm even thinking of getting one for my 29 gallon.

Comments: Decent looking but bulky. Usually that will make it easier to change the bulbs. The craftsmanship is crap. Poor quality plastics are warped. So much for the good ole USA when it comes to making anything worthy. I think I will buy German next time.

Comments: The 36 inch light is just right for our 40 gallon reef tank. It is bright and the fan makes little noise. 3 lunar lights give the tank a new look in a dark room. We are pleased with this light!
