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.

Ecosmart Live

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.

Manufacturer Info

EcoTech Marine has revolutionized the way people think about water movement in reef aquariums. Our technologically superior pumps produce unmatched broad yet gentle flow, while placing the motor outside the tank—preserving the beauty of your aquarium and enhancing the health of your aquarium ecosystem. The EcoTech leadership team consists of aquarium enthusiasts and engineers with a penchant for challenging the status quo. When EcoTech took root in the science labs of Lehigh University and University of Oklahoma, we realized there were serious differences between the native aquatic ecosystems in nature and the terrestrial habitats created in aquariums—and that little was being done to address this gap in the marketplace. Since that day, we have worked tirelessly to improve the “state of the art” to enable our customers to have the healthiest, safest and smartest aquarium possible. That’s why our products offer a wide variety of easy-to-program modes and have been thoroughly tested and endorsed by marine-biologists—making it the most versatile and life-like pump on the market.

Excellent light/software

Comments: The Radion is an all around great light. There are a lot of choice for lighting fixtures; some with more and better LEDs than the Radion. Where I believe the Radion stands out is 1) the software gives you incredible control of the light; and 2) the build quality is clearly present in this fixture. I have been using a radion since they were released (upgraded my gen1 to a gen3 in February) and I am convinced that this is the light for me. My SPS continue to grow and flourish with great colors under these lights. I have had multiple generations of SPS now growing 100% under the Radion and I can stay that this light will not only grow SPS, but under the right conditions it will rival MH and T5 fixtures.

Comments: I found these easy to install with the Ecotech hanging kit. I used the reeflink to set them up. Not much documentation with the software, but was still easy to get these lights working perfectly. The colors are amazing, and I see more shimmer in the water than I did with my halides. I am on a 4 week 40% ramp up, so we will see if the coral continues to love them.

Comments: I have had 2 Ecotech Radion XR30w GEN 3 PRO running on long rail kit on my 100 Gallon REEF TANK that's 5 ft in length & the 2 XR30 Gen 3 PRO'S give MORE THEN ENOUGH COVERAGE. THEY ARE ACTUALLY SO POWERFUL, MINE ARE TURNED UP TO ONLY ABOUT 13%-15%. JUST GREAT OPTION to be able to adjust your lighting intensity based on your coral needs... I have a HUGE variety of corals & fish in my setup running 2 years now almost & have seen significant difference in coral growth the last 6 months I switched over to Ecotech. BEST CHOICE I EVER MADE :) Before I was running a 4 fixture 60 inch T5, which was good but being in Vegas, just gave off heat & knew there were better fixtures out there. Wish the phone app was easier to use though but these fixtures BLOW EVERY OTHER COMPETING LIGHT OUT THE WATER. I was VERY hesitant to spend this much $ on new lights when I already had a good light setup going, but ended up REALLY BEING THE BEST purchase I made so far for my tank. **ENTIRE TANK OVERALL LOOKS BETTER** & even a few fish like my female Leopard Wrasse have brightened up a LOT, turned more blue with the new lights :) They have more features & functions that I don't even know YET LOL but are awesome & DEFINITELY WORTH THE $. With this brand, U REALLY GET WHAT U PAY FOR. *5 STAR RATING*, just wish the ipad/phone ECOTECH app was easier to use like the MANY features avail like creating diff random lighting effects, play with colors in lighting, switching colors around, etc. It's def a LARGE amount of $ for light fixtues, but if your looking to upgrade your lights TO THE VERY BEST TODAY, I personally think it's better to wait & save the money for the Radion Brand versus going with a cheaper/knock-off brand.. ALSO VIRTUALLY GIVES OFF **NO HEAT** AT ALL! JUST SUPER PRODUCT ALL AROUND. Just REALLY wish they brought the pricing down at LEAST for multiple fixtures, or would be nice if the they offered package OPTIONS w/ their lighting & pumps with at least SOME DISCOUNT!

Comments: Great lights when there working. Well yesterday the Radion Pro 3 just died. No Leds would light. Reef link still talks the light and you can reset everything and try to update. Even the demo modes do not work. If I hook it up to PC with usb cord I get a flashing pink over the three buttons only. Is this some code? Anyone have a answer? I have to wait till Monday to call Ecotech. Corals will not be happy.

Comments: Got two of the G3's a few weeks ago. The build quality is great, very nice as you would expect for the price and from Echotech. HOWEVER, for the money, its crazy you have to spend another $200 to connect wirelessly. They need to make a model with the wireless built in as you only need one. The lights connect to each other by RF. Its very cool that they also talk to the Vortech pumps as well. My big gripe is with the software. I'll cut echo tech some slack as its listed as BETA, but its very buggy. When it works, its amazing to be able to control the intensity of every light spectrum individually. You can customize your schedule with infinite possibilities. Overall, Its a great light but as a total package, its a work in progress.

Comments: Replaced my old bulb system with a pair of these. I was nervous at first, but did the research and choose the best product for price, functionality and customization. My only word of caution is do not set them at 100% to begin with (I bleached my coral at first), but doing it slowly over the course of a month. My corals look amazing and show new growth and fibrate. I am using my with a Apex controller without any issues with the latest firmware.

Comments: Amazing fixture, this replaced a popular brand full spectrum Chinese fixture, the difference with my corals between the 2 fixtures is nothing short of amazing. My corals looked washed out before with the cheap Chinese leds, after only a couple weeks with the Radion my corals have returned to their true colors and the fluorescence is awesome! The fixture is expensive but worth every penny IMO. Will eventually purchase a reeflink for wireless control but for now I'm happy programing the light with my Mac.

Comments: I'm a reef enthusiast, not a reef junkie... so I have a simple timer for my inside the tank powerhead.. no need to over control everything. Yes I do have an Apex to control heat, cooling and my auto top off system..I've had my tank for 3 years and this is by far my best investment yet. I almost purchase another brand at $2500 but they don't even have the natural program that EcoTech has. I use the USB cable connection, no need for a real time wireless connection, find the program setting that works for you, program the light and your done. Again I'm not controlling powerheads so wireless control was not a biggy for me. The light output is fantastic compared to the T5 HO's i used to have. The natural program lets you pick start time, end time, chance of clouds, and chance of lightning and the program does the rest. Really nice. The quality is superb. I did purchase and install the 110 degree lens...
