Zetlight presents at Cips 2017 a new series of waterproof led ceiling lights
This article is also available in: italian
We are talking about a new series of three ceiling lights of increasing power, from 80 to 210 watt according to the length. Especially designed for the marine world, with a strong peak on blue spectrum, these ceiling lights are the new full range by Zetlight for the demanding public of marine aquariums. Especially suggested for soft corals, LPS, and the first easy SPS. Actually the powers involved don’t let us believe this is a ceiling light for demanding Acroporas. After all the price will be characterized by being a middle way in the current market.
Technical Features of Zetlight series ZT
|Power||80 watt||140 watt||210 watt|
|Light output||3.300 lumen||4.900 lumen||8.600 lumen|
|Dimensions||58x26x4(h) cm||78x26x4(h) cm||118x26x4(h) cm|
The most interesting feature of this ceiling light is the fact that it is IP67 certificated, namely to be completely protected from water splashes, even abundant, as you can see in the opening picture.
The ceiling light has a very traditional setting, thin, with length development and passive cooling system through dissipating wings. Of course it is not submersible, since it’s only IP67 and not IP68, but it certainly safeguards better from the accidental exposure with our aquariums water.The extensible lateral brackets allow a great flexibility of fitting, as they cover, in the large version, 15 cm more of the length of the ceiling light for each side, and 10 in the smaller ones.
The led selection is a full spectrum approach, with a significant number of different low-power led, as you can see in next schedule.
Leds of the new Zetlight ZT series
|Deep Blue||19%||19%||19%||455-460 nm|
|Royal Blue||5%||5%||5%||470-475 nm|
|Total Led number||64||128||192|
As we can see there are low-power led, and their allocation leads to a predominance in percent of the blue-violet channel about at 69%.
To provide a strong illumination, good also for SPS corals, we need only to place side by side more than one of these ceiling lights. In this way we can obtain a stronger light and penetration and a better coverage.
We really enjoyed these ceiling lights because they can fit different tank sizes. Because they are reasonably powerful, and to keep SPS corals we just have to place side by side more than one. And because they are IP67 and safeguard us even from profuse water splashes
