We Love the Visible Spectrum....It Just Isn't Big Enough
The Hydra fills the visible light spectrum with light to spare. AI set the standard in LEDs, and have taken them years of experience and customer feedback to provide an even wider spectral output with the AI Hydra by adding 415nm Violet and 400nm UV LEDs to the mix.It Blends
The Hydra uses proprietary 80 degree lenses to provide uniform light output and color blending. AI`s latest lens design utilizes the same TIR (Total Internal Reflection) optical design while incorporating a diffuse exit surface to optimize color blending.
*Optional 50 degree lenses are available for those needing more penetration.Wireless
