Kessil A360 Controllable LED Aquarium Light Information

Product Manuals & Documentation

The A360 features Kessil`s new proprietary Kessil Logic™, a unique form of spectral intelligence developed for precise color blending and optimal coral growth. In this new design, instead of varying the light intensity of two different channels to find the desired color and intensity mix, users can select the perfect spectrum and color with one knob and then adjust the intensity with the other. Kessil Logic™ will not only dramatically improve the user experience, it will also boost the light output at both ends of the spectral tuning range by as much as 30%.

External Controllability In addition to its enhanced manual controllability, the A360 comes with a pair of ports that allows the fixture to be governed by external devices. This new control interface operates within a 0-10Vdc 10VDC range, making it compatible with several popular aquarium controllers. When daisy-chained in series without an external controller, the first A360 acts as the master unit propagating its settings to all other lights in the chain.

Shimmer Beautiful shimmering effect gives your tank a natural, sunlit look rivaling MH. It`s like connecting with your own piece of the ocean.

Tunable Spectrum Independently adjustable color channels enables tuning a preferred color within the spectral range thousands of research and testing hours determined to be the optimal spectral points for coral growth and color.

Dense Matrix LED™ technology blends different light wavelengths before they leave the light, providing uniform color throughout the tank. Single light source eliminates spotlight effect, spreading powerful light over a wide area.

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

Design Different lens options let you decide between maximum penetration or maximum coverage area. Engineered for long life, quiet operation, efficient cooling and maximum performance, all in a compact, low maintenance and attractive design.

Comments: Such an awesome lighting system for my 34g reef! It's an over kill lighting system for such a small tank but I'm thinking bigger tank one day. It's Apex ready, easy to install and very bright. I purchased the gooseneck stand too, but it didn't work for me. It seems designed for the rimless tank which I don't have. After reading some of the horror comments about falling in to the tank... I decided to hook it up on the ceiling. It turned out better! Highly recommend it!

Comments: Bought this light for my nano and so far it meets my expectations. It's very bright with beautiful shimmer effect and my corals seem to be loving it so far. Hooked it to my Apex controller and it works flawlessly with controlling both color and intensity variations throughout the day. I have it at the lowest intensity in the morning and evening with the blue color all the way to bright 10K noon sun. Even have it randomly dim to simulate clouds. Personally though, I don't think I would like this light nearly as much if I didn't have a controller!

Comments: Initially the light wouldn't turn on so I didn't know if there was a switch somewhere or what was going on. I didn't find one after reading the instructions again so I disconnected and reconnected everything to try that and it flickered a little and came on. The light looks amazing. Compact and very bright. Corals reacted almost instantly by opening up and seemed to translation really well. Came home one day to find my lights off for whatever reason. So I disconnected and reconnected the power supply a few times then it started flashing and not remaining on. I luckily have a laptop power supply with the same specs and plugs. So I put that on there to try to see if it was the light or that. After less than a week of having the light the power supply was done. I think it was faulty from the factory because if my initial problems getting the light to turn on. Overall a great light. I understand things just go wrong sometimes so I'm not holding anything against kessil.

Comments: I researched the different Led's and I decided to pull the trigger on the Kessil A360WE. I purchased two of them for my 70 gallon mixed reef. They look awesome on my tank! I've only had them on the tank for a day, but I can't believe how they make my corals pop! The shimmer is incredible too and that was a big reason why I purchased the Kessil brand! I have them linked to my Apex and can't wait to experiment with programming them soon! If you are looking for a beautiful with great shimmer then this lights the one for you...the gooseneck's are a great addition to the lights as well....

Comments: The reason I would not buy them again is the way they are supported to the tank. I have my tank open and when I bought these lights I bought the gooseneck holders with them, on my particular tank they did not hold that well after about three weeks with them one of them fell into my tank, I bumped it with my elbow and it fell in. I called Kessil and told them what happened and they told me to send the light to them they would see if they could fix it, when I talked to the rep he said "IT HAPPENS ALL THE TIME,YOU ARE NOT THE FIRST NOR WILL YOU BE THE LAST" Hmm to me that is not good, well the end result was they could not fix it, they said they could but they did not feel it would last to long and told me they had a refurbished one I could buy.I said fix mine and I would buy a refub too , they said if I buy a refurb they would have to keep mine...Hmm At that point I said it's time for a Hydra!
