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

Tunability: Tune 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/Daisy-Chain 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.

Great light

Pros: Great design and function

Cons: None

I've had 1 of these running on a 60 gal cube and it is working out great. Beautiful shimmer and look over all. Have a few coral (zoas, mushrooms) that are thriving under this light. I have the spectral controller running this and it all works great so far.

Great lights even better with controller

Pros: Shimmer, ease of use, light quality and photosynthesis, great coral growtg

Cons: None yet owned for more than a year

This light is fantastic all the way around. Great color, spectrum and ease of use. I bought the spectral controller and it varies the spectrum to my settings and schedule. The controller can control several lights. The grow in my corals have been like they are on steroids. The shimmer is the best I’ve seen in led lighting. I am very happy with the kessil 160ae and will be buying 2 more soon.

Disappointing

Pros: adjustable

Cons: unreliable

Used about 3 years gingerly for supplemental lighting during morning & nights and just suddenly died and just right when warranty expired. Please consider something more reliable for LEDs for this price.

Kessil A160WE Tuna Blue

Pros: The color is great, it lights up a considerable area for its size, and the light itself looks great hanging above the tank.The bonus is the shimmer it produces

Cons: N/A

I've had this kessil since 2015, and nothing but positive highlights for it. The light is very silent. The automation using the controller is smooth as daylight.You can manually control the spectrum and intensity by the knobs on the top of the unit, but using the controller is fantastic as you can set it up so the light mimics the natural day long intensity and spectrum pattern and turn on and off the system automatically. The best part is the shimmer effect. It enhances the natural sun light effect and is way cool to see.

Awesome light

Pros: Fully adjustable. Can be mounted easily. Coral growth is amazing so far. The list goes on.

Cons: A little costly but you do get great lights for the price at least.

I have 2 of these over my tank and do a great job lighting it. I will need a 3rd. But will say that these lights are amazing.
