Kessil has finally released some info about a few long-anticipated new products, the Kessil A350 and the Kessil A350W Tuna Blue LED Aquarium Pendants.
Ever since the splash of the Kessil A150W, reef enthusiasts have been waiting to see what Kessil is going to do next. The Kessil A350 provides more than twice the light, of the A150W and is rated at 90W. The A350 models, use Kessil’s dense LED matrix to provide the combined output of many LED chips in a compact form factor. Additionally, this new aquarium LED pendant uses the vapor phase change cooling element to provide long LED life and cooler running temperature.
The A350 and A350W utilize 2 control knobs; the first control’s Kessil’s proprietary “Sky Blue” spectrum, while the second controls another one of Kessil’s proprietary spectrum “Ocean Blue.” Since each is independently controlled, each hobbyist, can achieve the color spectrum they feel is best for their setup.
Here is a comparison of the two lights:
The A350 LED is designed for tanks deeper than 24 inches, or where corals require more intense lighting. The A350W LED model, offers wider spread for tanks of up to 24 inches in depth.
Kessil will be releasing the A350 towards the end of April, and the A350W towards the end of May 2012, each for a retail price of $399.
