The first led bar ever tested in our DaniReef LAB happened to be the Orphek OR2 Reef Day Plus which has been talked about lately.

In some pictures there’s also the sister Blue Plus that we’re going to introduce in the next days. The two LED bars we tested are in a 120 cm configuration.

These bars are beautiful, solid and they seem very well built. Actually they aren’t dimmable, but Orphek said that soon they’re going to release their own dimmer that will allow the adjustment. So, for now, the bars only have the on/off switch that can be timed.

The bars are sold with a hanging kit. Also, on Orphek‘s website is available a hooking system for the tankside. We’ve already said that the Orphek OR2 Reef Day Plus bare are excellently built. The external refinement, we believe in aluminium, works also as heat-sink, and the assembling is simply flawless.

The Programming

Usually no LED bar can be programmed, and the Orphek OR2 Reef Day Plus don’t make exception. But for some samples you can purchase a controller sold separately for the dimming in input and output and for the total intensity. Orphek announced the release of their own dimmer, but it’s currently unavailable.

So, unusually, we can’t give you the consumption and the values of the LED channels, because the LED switch on all at the same time.
