The exterior has evolved; hard edges and contrasting materials have been replaced with a one-piece lens frame that tapers to the lenses and improves the base form factor.

The sheet top also morphs slightly to accommodate backlit tactile buttons that replace the cap sense controls on the previous models. The new buttons make operation of the fixture simpler and reduce the risk of RF interference from other equipment.

EcoSmart Live

Wouldn’t it be cool if the Radion communicated wirelessly with other Radion units. Well, it does – through EcoSMART Live. Lighting control is now in the cloud.

Thanks to the controller’s web interface (compatible with Mac and Windows), Radion owners can enjoy EcoSMART’s cutting-edge controls and user-friendly design on a computer or tablet with an internet connection. New features are implemented automatically, with no work for the user.

Note: A Radion must be connected via USB to a computer running the Connection Manager in order to control your lights from the web.

Battery Back-Up

Blizzard. Hurricane. A motorist hits a utility pole. Stuff happens. The power goes out… the Radion is fully compatible with the optional EcoTech Battery Backup.

In the event of a power outage, lack of light energy over the aquarium results in corals switching from photosynthesis (producing oxygen) to respiration (consuming oxygen). When used with a Battery Backup accessory, the Radion emits low levels of light intended to prevent corals from respiring, and therefore; your Radion will help to maintain an oxygen-rich environment for your fish during this critical time period.
APEX Ready
When you connect Apex Ready certified products to your Apex System, many new options will unfold. How about having your LED lights dim or change color temperature at the touch of your iPad? How about programming your Tunze or VorTech pumps for some serious wave action? That’s what you get when you pair up the Apex System and an Apex Ready certified product.

This product probably is the highest cost light out on the market, i researched putting two of these on my 125 gallon new Cad Lights aquarium. I added the wide angle lenses which make a big difference. This product is easy to use. all you have to do is setup an ecotech live account and then you can customize your program right from your PC or Mac. Ecotech support staff walked me through everything which is what you want from a product that costs so much. The colors are amazing and the money you will save from not having to replace bulbs is huge over the long run. I highly recommend this product as it is one investment i am REALLY happy i made. The Cad Lights Aquarium.....Not so much haha.

Works fine but noisy fan

I bought this because of my kessil 160We did not give the Coral growth that I am looking for. So i decided to give this a try. First thing when i turned it on, is that i notice the light is not giving me enough spread to cover the width of my 30" tank. this is because I am using the RMS mount that does not give me enough height to increase the spread. I am not sure why Ecotech did not make the mount adjustable. So I am going to purchase the wide angle lance hoping to get wider spread and have a more even light across the tank. Also I notice the fan is way noisier than my two Kessils, almost like the fan bearings are about to expire? the built quality seems to be OK but Kessils is way higher quality than this radion. With this said, my Corals seems to responding to the lights better than the Kessils. So I will wait and see what happens in a few weeks. I am sure it wil give me good Coral growth, but the tank looks worst than with the Kessils in terms of shimmer....

Horrible Software

We bought a XR15W and got it set up with the EcoTech mounting bracket. That was the easy part. We then tried to get the light programmed. That part has turned into hours(literally)of frustration. First you have to download their connection manager software. That is not a smooth process in that you have to unzip the files and start the installation application. Then you must use only an allowable browser (like Chrome), turn off any and ALL programs that may keep their Cloud software from writing to the light (in my case 5 programs including Norton), turn on the lights and plug in the USB cord in a certain sequence and then MAYBE you can program your lights. After several hours with EcoTech's technical help, we got the lights programmed. Then we made the mistake of wanting to change the light intensity and time the LEDs came on ... another 2 hours with tech help but this time we never could get it programmed so we are back to manual on/off. EcoTech seriously needs to hire a capable software programmer to make the process seamless and functional. (think Obamacare website). I have NO CLUE why the programming isn't done directly between your computer and the light!?!? Why is their cloud software even involved after you download the EcoTech connection manager software? They claim you don't have to deal with updates but hardly an advantage if it NEVER works. If programmed correctly updates are few and far between. A well engineered design makes it simple to use, not complicated. So, though the LED lights are cool and the mounting bracket is nicely designed, I STILL DO NOT HAVE a functioning program.

I purchased my EcoTech XR30 Gen3 Pro light ficture about a year ago. Once i got it setup , I can honestly say my tank has not looked back. It has made big strides. My coral is so happy with this light ficture. It is well worth the money. I shopped around looking at different fictures, but nothing came close to changing my mind about purchasing this ficture. I was able to have my xr30 pro on one side of my tank and on the other side i kept my old led ficture. Within a couple of months I could see a big difference in my coral. It was funny because one side of my tank . The coral started to change right in front of my eyes. every one of my corals started to lean towards the side that my radion was on. Very happy with my decision of purchasing my radion pro. Now i need to get another one for the opposite side. Good job Eco Tech Marine.

Highly recommended

Excellent product. Spend the extra money and do it right. I have purchased other light fixtures and nothing compares. You can adjust the settings with ease and immediately get the color you are looking for and need. There is no guessing with what color scale you're trying to achieve. The company already has spent the time doing it so you don't have to. Trust me I've spent hours on a maxspect razor and aquaillumination trying to get the color I wanted.

Must have

This is my fourth set of lights for my reef aquarium. I wish I made decision sooner. My last LED light were TrueLumen, but in comparison, Radion is way better in term of luminosity and wireless features, the corals seem enjoy it more. Now my light still running in acclamation 4 weeks period. The best part is now in able to link it with my MP40s, everything can be control on my iPhone. Dan Trinh
