A couple of weeks ago, we reported the release of the Metis CRP LED Aquarium Fixture from Pacific Sun. Now, Pacific Sun’s newest project is complete. According to a recent press release, Pacific Sun is the first aquatic company to produce LED fixtures with the newest Cree XM-L LED chips.
With an official release date of March 1, 2011 this new LED line will be offered in three sizes: Metis XM 2x150W 850mm, Metis XM 3x150W 1250mm, Metis XM 4x150W 1650mm. Each panel has 24 LEDs, 12 1D0 White Cree XM-L (up to 10W), 6 XP-E 465nm Blue (up to 3W), and 6 450nm Royal Blue LEDs (up to 3W).
A great feature about these new LED fixtures, is the use of Micro-Molex plugs which allow each part to be replaced with no soldering or wiring. This means that any future upgrades or repairs can be conducted with ease.
The modules can be controlled via Bluetooth with each color managed independently, to simulate sunrise, sunset, and overcast conditions.
