1. Kessil A80 Controllable LED Aquarium Light - Tuna Blue

The new Kessil A80 LED fixture is an ultra-compact, completely silent, LED fixture that is great for Nano Reef Aquariums and Fish-Only Aquariums.

Innovative heat dissipation allows for fanless, low maintenance, shell-shaped design. Advanced optics create smooth color mixing and a beautiful shimmer.

Dense Matrix LED Array
Kessil`s unique, efficient Dense Matrix LED array is built in-house and packs high-power and deep penetration onto a single small chip.

Utilizing Kessil`s carefully designed optics and the Dense Matrix array, the A80 provides the most light per watt of any fixture built so far.

The result of years of research and testing, our aquarist-specific spectrums ensure vibrant coloration and prolific growth.

Advanced Controllability
Use the dials on the fixture to quickly set the spectrum and intensity for a personalized look or use your favorite 0-10V controller. Kessil Logic™ maintains consistent output no matter the spectrum. Daisy-chain multiple lights (with Link Cable, sold separately) for seamless control from a single source. Or, use the Kessil Spectral Controller (sold separately) for advanced programming and automated control.

Intuitive and Affordable Light Control

Equipped with flawless touch control and a vivid color display, the Spectral Controller X is effortless light control at the touch of your fingertips. Its straightforward approach to light control programming allows for endless customization options without the confusion. The sleek, modern design ensures a beautiful and cohesive setup that won`t disrupt the look of your aquarium.

Smart K-Link Communication

The new K-Link communication method is an upgrade of the easily plug & play 0-10V, allowing users to network multiple A360X together(up to 32 fixtures per chain) and set individual groups to run their own programs. K-Link is also a two-way communication, meaning the Spectral Controller X can detect the number of lights in the network, the status of the lights, etc.

One Controller, Two Ports - Backward Compatible

Each controller is equipped with one K-Link port and one 0-10V output port. The K-Link port allows users to connect to the new A360X, while the 0-10V port is for Kessil’s 0-10V light fixtures.

Maximum of 12 programs can be created

Quick Set: Create unique dawn and dusk effects by altering light intensity and color throughout eight different time points.
