Brighter than Metal Halide HQI Designed for tanks 2 to 5 feet deep, 500+ PAR value at 24″ from center is more than double that of a 250W Metal Halide HQI. New, specially designed lenses provide the best combination of high PAR and light spread. For a 24” deep tank, use one Ecoray 112DX for approximately 30” x 20” area to provide 150+ PAR at 24” around the perimeter of the 30” x 20” area, increasing to 500+ PAR toward the center. For larger coverage, place it higher above the water level. Deeper tanks will automatically get larger coverage. 150+ PAR is generally considered to be the minimum lighting requirement for LPS corals while clams and SPS corals generally require 300+ PAR. Do not be confused with many low PAR LED units in the market claiming large coverage area for similar or higher wattage, these units generally produce only 40-100 PAR at 24” from center (one twelveth to one fifth the PAR of Ecoray 112DX). These low PAR LED units do not provide adequate lighting intensity and they are not suitable for reef aquariums with LPS and SPS corals.
250+ PAR at 24” from center with only Blue LEDs on Turn on the Blue LEDs only and watch the intense colors of your corals.
Up to 100 lumens per watt Latest generation High Power 1 Watt LED produces up to 100 lumens per watt, more than 50% higher lumens output compared to older generation 1 Watt LED. The 112 1 watt LEDs combined are brighter and more efficient than 37 3 watt LEDs, with much lower heat.
Cooler operation With 1 Watt LEDs, an aluminum PCB, a thick aluminum base plate that serves as heat sink and super quiet cooling fans, the Ecoray 112DX produces an LED junction temperature of only 56 °C (133 °F), far lower than the 88 °C (190 °F) allowable maximum.
Modular design Fits most reef tank sizes. For full coverage, place Ecoray 112DXs 6 to 7 inches apart. Get larger spread and wider separation by placing Ecoray 112DX higher above the water level. Install either the short or the long side facing the front. For example: -a tank 5 feet wide by 22” front to back width, 24″ deep, would use 2 Ecoray 112DX with the long side facing the front. -a tank 7 feet wide by 30” front to back width, 24″ deep, would use 4 Ecoray 112DX with the short side facing the front.
Save 50% energy Use at least 50% less energy than 250 W Metal Halide lights, while getting much higher intensity. Generally, replace one 250 W Metal Halide with one Ecoray 112DX to provide similar light spread.
Eliminate Metal Halide bulb replacement costs Metal Halide requires bulb replacement every 6 to 9 months at a cost of $60 to $80 per bulb. LEDs have life expectancy of up to 50,000 hours.
Eliminate cooling costs Due to the intense heat generated by Metal Halide lighting, a separate cooling system is usually required that consumes additional energy and expense.
All Aluminium Housing The high quality, corrosion-resistant, light weight, all aluminum housing is designed to last a long time over your reef aquarium. Most competitors’ models are made of painted steel which will corrode in 12 months or less.
Completely Sealed Electronics PCB board, LEDs and all electronics are completely sealed to prevent moisture and air from entering the sealed area. Drivers are located outside the sealed area to allow for easy replacement, if necessary.
Compact, Light Weight and Simple No separate, heavy ballast boxes or an on/off switch. Simply plug the Ecoray 112D into your timer, and then into an electrical outlet.
