Giesemann has been known for making high-quality light fixtures that use the highest quality parts available, with a durable powder coat finish. Most people will actually call their light fixtures a piece of furniture with how they look. We have run multiple Giesemann lights for years and have been very happy with them. Between Giesemann fixtures and the many other light fixtures out there, just simply the quality of parts and thickness of material make the Giesemann light fixtures our first choice for almost any tank where the light will be mounted externally and be visible.
The Aurora is the best of what recent technology has to offer. With densely packed LED modules and dimmable T5 lamps fine tuning the perfect light has never been easier.
The Aurora Hybrid LED T5 Fixture has been one of our favorite fixtures to date. With its sleek and stylish appearance and intuitive Bluetooth control, this will be one of the last lights you purchase. Each pair of T5 lamps is controlled individually and there are 3 channels of LEDs to control for fine tuning of shimmer and overall coloration of the light. Bonus features include Storm and Cloud simulation as well as full lunar cycles.

With individual parabolic reflectors designed with CAD software that is produced from 99% reflective aluminum delivered the T5 light into the tank and doesn’t scatter the light and keeping almost all of it shining into the tank. All Aurora fixtures include an active heatsink with variable speed fans that keep your T5 lamps and LED lights running at optimum temperatures.
With the Futura App, the Aurora is one of the easiest hybrid fixtures we have controlled. Simple sliders and multi-point graphing with over 1440 available points allow for easy programming on a computer or Android device. T5 tubes are controlled in pairs allowing for a gradual increase in the light emitted into the tank. There are also 3 channels of LED control to fine tune the overall optical color that you see as well as the low moon and actinic lighting. The LEDs also provide a slight shimmer to give that natural sunshine appearance while the T5 lamps provide full coverage with very little shadows for those acros.
Each 75watt LED group features three independently-programmable LED channels with up to 1440 available set points per 24-hour phase. Each channel is capable of 0-100% dimming.
LED color channels include:
Full Spectrum White
Violet- TRU-UV sub 400nm
All LED’s are zero-loss 120deg Optic-Free 5w CREE X-Series controlled by high-performance linear drivers
Note: 60" Aurora-Hybrid lights will require a step-down transformer for the T5 lamps that is included. The T5 plug will need to be plugged into the transformer to bring the voltage down from 240v to 120v.
All Bulbs Sold Separately.
Futura App is made for android devices only at this time, and there is also software for Windows and Mac computers. IOS app coming soon.
