48 inch 4x65 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.

One side dead

Comments: Like many of the other reviewers I was satisfied with the light fixture until one side died. I replaced the bulbs, but still did not work. Most likely a faulty ballast

Comments: It is nice and all however, I would have preferred that the lunar led lights be blue rather then the off white color. Other then that as of this week after setting it up I have no complaints.

1.75 years and still kicking

Comments: I've had the 48" for closing on 2 years. Never had one single problem and mine is way quieter than any PC I've ever known. Also, my 48" only has one fan as advertised. The only reason I'm looking for a new light is an upgrade to a larger tank. Will likely stick with an Orbit but want to try out the MH version.

Bright, not so quiet

Comments: I give it four stars for the brightness and the construction quality. It feels well made and it was well packaged. (Marine Depot also wrapped it well for shipping.) I took one star off for the fan noise. There are 2 fans in the 48" model, one at each end (web site currently says 1 fan). The fans are 80mm computer case fans and they are wired to spin at full speed. (Think of two older, louder computers next to each other.) They are noticeably louder than my computer and compete with my tv, which is in the same room. The fans are accessible and I will replace them with variable speed fans to mellow out the sound, although this will likely shorten the life of the ballasts. So, I recommend but with qualifications. Ignore the "quiet" description.

Quality lights a lil' noisy

Experience Level: Beginner


Comments: I'm new to PC lights. One of the aspects that sold me was the "quiet" feature. However I find the light's fans to be a bit noisy. The lights do their job though and have been bringing my live rock back to life quite quickly. Overall I consider this product a sound buy and have been enjoying it immensely.

Comments: I REALLY LOVE THIS LIGHT. I HAVE ALWAYS LOVE TO WATCH MY FISH AND HATED TO SEE THE LIGHT GO OUT. BUT, WITH THE MOON LIGHT I CAN NOW WATCH THINGS THAT GO ON WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT. IT IS A DIFFERENT WORLD. EVEN THOUGH I HAVE ONLY HAD IT FOR A WEKK I'M SURE THINGS ARE GOING TO BE GROWING MUCH BETTER AND FASTER THAN BEFORE. THANKS,
