Kessil

Perfect coverage. Awesome colors. Excellent growth.

Kessil’s AP700 LED combines the features and power of their pendant lights with a traditional flat aquarium fixture. This configuration allows the light to be suspended above the aquarium with a hanging kit, mounted to the tank itself with the mounting arm, or placed within your existing canopy with the canopy kit.

The 185-watt LED fixture uses Kessil-designed “Hybrid Optics” that gives their LED array the depth penetration and coverage of metal halide lighting but without the heat and high energy consumption. The Hybrid Optics design uses the latest Kessil patented Dense Matrix LED arrays with a specially designed lens and reflector system. This eliminates lighting “hot spots” often seen with regular LED aquarium fixtures. The AP700 provides a full 48 inches of light coverage with virtually no shading. You’ll also love the light shimmer effect that looks just like natural sunlight penetrating the reef.

Kessil manufactures LED lighting systems for research equipment, photo-imaging and other color-sensitive applications. This LED know-how is found in the AP700’s Full Color Spectrum properties. You’ll be able to select and fine-tune the light spectrum with the AP700’s endless color palate. Kessil Logic allows each color channel to be independently tuned to create the best color spectrum to stimulate intense coloration and accelerated coral growth. Kessil also pre-programs the fixture to always provide the right UV spectrum for coral growth. Kessil Logic ensures the LED array provides consistent output across the light spectrum.

Control of the light’s color adjustments and programming can be made directly on the fixture or wirelessly through the Kessil Wi-Fi Controller app for iOS and Android devices.

What we really like about the Kessil AP700:

  • Kessil pendant technology in a traditional canopy fixture
  • Beautiful shimmer effect like metal halide lighting
  • Excellent coverage across the reef
  • Wi-Fi control through iOS and Android devices
  • Selection of light programs like Lunar Cycle and weather effects

  • Variety of mounting options: mounting arms, canopy mount kit, and hanging kit.

Thanks!

A
A single fixture can handle SPS tanks for up to 36" x 24", you would need 2 units to get full coverage on a 48" aquarium.

This light makes life a whole lot easier with its various programs to choose from (or create) on the associated app. Great color spectrums and intensities to choose from. Pricey yes but worth it if you want a well established tank.

I bought this light about 3 weeks ago to replace a Coralife dual tube T5HO light I had on my 48" tank. This is exactly what my tank needed. Hook up was a breeze. I have an android phone and the wifi setup worked first try. I did notice a few bugs in the app but nothing that bothers me. I currently h...Read More

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.

REVIEW
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 turn...Read More
