Perfect Coverage. Awesome Colors. Excellent Growth.

The AP700 leverages the technology of Kessil`s award-winning pendant lights and expands it into a larger, 185-watt panel platform.

Hybrid Optics
"Hybrid Optics" simulate the effect of a Metal Halide T5 Combo. Kessil`s specially designed lens and reflector combination provides a broader delivery of light and superior penetration. This virtually eliminates shading while minimizing hot spots.

Maximum Coverage
The new "Hybrid Optics" combine with the two latest generation of Dense Matrix LED arrays, giving up to 48" of coverage. The AP700 has been designed and tested to consistently provide the best spectrum and delivery for coral growth and coloration.

For a Mixed reef:
- Coverage is up to 48"x24" hanging 15"-18" above water surface.
For an SPS dominant:
- Coverage is up to 36"x24" hanging 5"-7" above water surface.

WiFi Controllability
The iPad app gives users access to advanced manual control and program customization, as well as offering the ability to sync groups of lights. App features include full color control, acclimation, lunar cycle, weather effects, and more. *iPhone and Android support coming soon!

The Kessil shimmer effect gives your tank a beautiful, natural, sunlit look comparable to the shimmer of a Metal Halide fixture. It`s like replicating your own piece of the ocean.

Full Color Spectrum
The new generation Dense Matrix LED brings aquarium lighting colors to a new level. Full Color Spectrum is now available for the AP700. With the iPad app, users can choose a range of blue from Deep Ocean Blue to Sky Blue, and can even select other colors such as green, yellow, red and purple for a different aesthetic.

Color Mixing
Different wavelengths within a single LED array are seamlessly blended, emitting a uniform color with widespread coverage.

Kessil Logic
Independently adjustable color channels enable users to tune a preferred color within the spectral range while maintaining the best usable spectrum for coral growth and coloration. Kessil Logic™ maintains consistent output across the spectrum, Sky Blue to Deep Ocean Blue.

Patented Dense Matrix LED™ technology concentrates multiple LED chips into a single array, creating a powerful light source that offers better and deeper penetration without sacrificing coverage. The maximum penetration can be 24"-30" from the water surface for most reefs. The penetration is even greater by spacing units closer together or with the use of AP700 optical accessories.

No matter which spectral point is chosen with the tunable spectrum, Kessil`s proprietary blend of precision UV light encourages coral coloration.

Compact and sleek design features quiet operation, innovative heat management, and efficient, long-lasting LED construction. This design also allows for more mounting/hanging options: Mounting Arms, Canopy Kit, and Hanging Kit.

Great Lights

Just hooked these up and I must say the color, shimmer and power are great. I have had LED lights since I started my 220 gallon tank in 2012 and these make my tank look totally different and awesome.

This light is amazing

I bought this to add coverage to my 36" deep tank by 36" wide. The shimmer at 50% power at the height of the day is incredible. The ease of plug and play on the wireless control is great. Since I haven't owned it long I will have to review how the corals respond. My friends when I turned the lights on said, "why is your tank look so clean." It seemed to me as well that the crispness of light really highlights the whole setup. The two things I can say negative is the moonlights are a little bright and price. If this light could be justified by adding the price of two 360's with a controller I would say it is about $100 over priced. That said you could make the argument that it is worth the extra cost the light brings to the whole setup.

It's awesome

I have only seen this in the store, but I want one! The fixture is sleek and stylish, and produces beautiful light. The programmability is awesome. And I expect that the coral will love the light.
