The A160WE 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 A160WE comes with a pair of ports that allows the fixture to be governed by external devices. This new control interface operates within a 0-10Volt DC range, making it compatible with several popular aquarium controllers. When daisy-chained in series without an external controller, the first A360 or A160 acts as the master unit propagating its settings to all other lights in the chain.

Shimmer Kessil lights are the only LEDs capable of producing a spectacular shimmer that rivals MH. The effect gives the look of natural sunlight on a coral reef. It`s like having your own piece of the ocean.

Spectrum Kessil LED chips are manufactured in-house with spectrums customized for aquarist needs. Dense Matrix™ technology is used to build LED arrays with unique spectral blends. A proprietary blend of UV light enhances coral growth and color.

Penetration Patented Dense Matrix LED™ tehcnology concentrates multiple LED chips into an array, creating a powerful light source with better and deeper penetration, without sacrificing coverage. E-Series LEDs are 15% brighter.

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

Design High performance and low maintenance. Simple and compact units feature quiet operation, innovative heat management and efficient, long-lasting LED construction

TunabilityTune the spectrum (10,000K – Actinic) and intensity for a personalized look. Kessil Logic™ maintains consistent output across the tunable spectrum.

Controllability Compatible with 0 ~ 10V external controllers such as the Kessil Spectral Controller or Apex with VDM Module. Multiple lights can be daisy-chained for control by either a single external controller or first light in chain.

  • Color Spectrum: 10,000K – Actinic
  • Fixture Dimensions: 4" x 2.48" (Length x Diameter)
  • Coverage Area (fish-only and soft corals): up to 24" surface diameter
  • Coverage Area (mixed reef with LPS or SPS corals): up to 18" surface diameter
  • Power Supply: 100-240 VAC (Input), 19-24V DC (Output)
  • Power Usage: 40W
* Please note: Controller/DaisyChain cables are sold separately. They are NOT included.

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.

REVIEW
Love this light. Very bright and powerful. The color spectrum is great too, ranging from a dark blue for nighttime, to a very bright white sun imitation. The reflection it makes on my ceiling also adds a coolness factor. I have mine on my bicocube 29. I customized the tank by taking the hood off and...Read More
