Current USA 48 inch Outer Orbit 2x150w 10K HQI-MH w/ 4x54W T5 HO & 18 Lunar Lights Information




  • High intensity PowerPaq HQI metal halide lighting—available in both 150W & 250W
  • Microprocessor based driving system—15% more light output**
  • SlimPaq T5HO Enhanced with high lumen output lamps
  • LED Panels provide both blue & white lunar lighting
Screaming Performance
The PowerPaq 10,000K HQI metal halide will make your corals thrive with stunning intensity and awesome color rendition. Packed with lumens, the 10,000K provides the natural shimmering effect found on coral reefs. Coupled with a highly efficient electronic driving system and SlimPaq Actinic T5 High Output lamps, the Outer Orbit HQI produces more lumens per watt than any comparable lamp or fixture—hands up!

Leaping Illumination
Powered by an advanced electronic driving system, the high output T5 SlimPaq lamps are driven to their maximum potential while ensuring long lamp life. The patented circuitry inside each ballast ensures consistent high performance and low energy consumption while meeting FCC standards with EMI protection and low THD. All components are the highest quality available, meeting ISO 9001 standards, and are potted to reduce thermal stress and increase ballast life expectancy. A German parabolic Powerwrap reflector increases light output up to 99% and surrounds each T5HO lamp for maximum light output. Integrated fan cools both ballast and lamps for efficient operation.

Panelit
Features both blue and white Lunar lights mounted on a removable LED panel. Each color is independently controlled—allowing you to use both colors for a gradual ramp up, or one color for nocturnal viewing.

Great Lights!

Comments: Believe it or not I replaced an H-series Solaris lighting fixture with these lights and I am completely satisfied. I did replace the 150w 10K MH bulbs that it came with to 150w 14K Phoenix bulbs because the bulbs that came with the fixture were not blue enough for my LPS's. They should offer an option in bulbs. Other than that these lights are great. The T5's give my corals much more color than my Solaris ever did. I love the fact that the ballasts are internal because I do not have enough room around my tank to put more external ballasts. This was one of the factors I needed to take into consideration when purchasing the lights. Heat was another factor, but my tank has remained in the 77 degree range with all of the lights on. Also, the night white/blue LED's each have their own switches so I can control the amount of light on my reef at night when feeding. Current gets 2 thumbs up from me.

Comments: This is nice set up however they could have done 3 HQIs in this space (60") instead of 2. I added 2 of the Current USA #1600 15" dual color retrofit kits to each side for supplemental lighting in the ends of the tank.

Comments: We have only had the light for a couple of weeks. It seems to be much better than the coralife pro we had. It set up much easier and the corals love it. We have a new controller for it and will allow it to bring the light up slowly. A very nice light.

Awesome Light get this one! T5

Comments: I did hours of research about lighting before I decided to look into the outer orbit fixtures. Like I read when researching lights, this one produces a lot of light in a little space. As long as that space is 24in. A 20 in version for the Solana would be very nice. The 12 moon lights are a very nice feature and have their own switches on the T5 version. The PC version just has plugs and has to be plugged and unplugged to turn on and off. It also only has one of each led per side instead of 3. All of this and the fact that the 4 T5s make it easy to customize a look (especially in the summer when you might not be able to run the halide if you don't have a chiller) more then make up for the difference in price between the two fixtures. My only gripe is with the mounting hardware. You have to get very creative to hang it if the tank is narrower then the light. Which most 24 inch long tanks are. Another thing to note is that the moonlights are a little bright for moon lights. I wouldn’t use them everyday so the fish get some time in the dark. A note to manufacturers: since the led panels are removable and have their own power supplies. Please make us some High output individually reflected led panel replacements. You could even put more leds in the same area. This would let us cut back on the MH usage saving heat and energy. In closing I like this light so much that I am designing my new tank around it. All you need to worry about is if 150 MH watts are enough for you. If not buy the 250. But I would stick to the T5 versions if your wallet will let you. I had them both and the T5 version is much nicer which is why it costs a hundred more.

Interval/External Heat Issues

Reviewers Rating Great

Comments: I have been using this light for 8 months and I really love it, it's bright, it looks good, and illuminates my entire tank. Recently, at about the 8 month mark, my T5's started to flicker. the problem got progressively worse and eventually T5's didn't ignite at all. Long story short MD replaced the ballast at no charge (as always excellent customer service) 3 hours into the replacement of the ballast I complete the wiring project and the T5's are back up an running. By the way, replacing the ballast didn't take an electrical engineering degree, but you do have to be a bit handy. The reason for writing this review is that I believe the ballast (both sides - one ballast for each pair of T5's) gave out in less than a year due to heat issues. If I had to do it all over again, I would purchase the 2x250w version of this light, which has an external driving system for the MH. I really believe this would make a difference and run the T5's much cooler. Unless CurrentUSA has changed the ballast (Sunpark Electronic ballast inside) I would think other people are having similar issues. On a side note, I also replaced the MH bulbs within a few months. I felt the 10k bulbs were too white for my taste and replaced them with 14k bulbs, better match for the T5's anyway. Overall, I am very happy with the purchase, just thought I would give others a chance to learn from my experiences.
