Finally you could directly touch ceiling lights like the BluRay, BluRay S, BluRay M, SilverMoon, DayLight and Pixi.

GNC made its name since its first product, the AM466 we’ve enthusiastically reviewed  some years ago (here the italian review). For some years now it has independently presented itself, investing in a lighting based on an elevated number of low-power led and it’s simple to configure, with few choices left to the users. A move that turned to be successful.

The various ceiling lights always had good values, low consumption and great response from the corals, a personal and very appreciated style. Finally all of these has come to the Interzoo, in the international area which is the GNC‘s competence.

GNC BluRay

The flagship product is, without any doubts, the beautiful GNC BluRay.

Linear, with an enormous aluminum heat sink which completely covers the acrylic structure where the led are contained, and that can properly cool them.

  • Dimensions: 300x400x40 mm;
  • Aquarium covering: 90×70 cm;
  • Total led: 588 led;
  • White led 12.000°K: 336;
  • Royal Blue led 450 nm: 196;
  • Red Deep led 660 nm: 56;
  • Consumption: 130 watt max;

As you can see the amount of led is amazing. 588 led per 130 watt of maximum consumption means that each led is run with less than 0,25 watt! And this means driving the led at low current, heating them a little, and proportionally increasing their durability.

The PAR declared by GNC start with 300 and decrease until 150 in the remote areas.
