Aquael Leddy Tube Retrofit 18W Plant (115-120cm)
LEDDY TUBE RETROFIT are replaceable universal LED modules that can be installed in place of the T5 or T8 fluorescent lamps (adapters included). They consume half as much energy as regular fluorescent lamps to emit the same amount of light. It is also worth noting that LED modules do not heat the water in the tank. Since they emit directional light, no reflectors will be necessary. The modules employ light-emitting diodes with a long service life.
The LEDDY TUBE modules employ advanced LED technology. As a result, they emit the same amount of light as regular fluorescent lamps while consuming half the energy, which is important for environmentally conscious consumers and translates into considerable savings on electricity bills. An additional advantage of LED modules is their durability. Unlike the regular fluorescent lamps, whose light output drops by half after one year of use, LEDs can be used for many years without replacement, thereby saving even more money.
The LEDDY TUBE modules are very easy to install. Each model is supplied with special adapters so that they can be assembled into any luminaire. The modules draw power from an independent supply source. Four versions of the product are available: two for freshwater aquariums (LEDDY SUNNY, which emits light with a colour temperature of 6500 K similar to natural sunlight, and LEDDY PLANT with a colour temperature of 8000 K, designed to enhance the growth of aquatic plants) and two for marine aquariums (LEDDY MARINE, which emits light with a colour temperature of 10000 K, designed to improve corals growth and LEDDY ACTINIC – 20000 K – for better colours of corals).
The innovative self-repair system
Being the most up-to-date lighting solution for aquariums, light-emitting diodes have been actively displacing the outdated fluorescent lamps from the market. They provide the ideal light parameters for an aquarium tank, while consuming far less energy than conventional light sources. In addition, their service life is several times longer than that of fluorescent lamps. This means additional savings, as there is no need for frequent replacement.
In order to make their service life even longer, AQUAEL, the leading manufacturer of LED lighting fixtures for aquariums, has implemented a novel solution. The latest generation of the LEDDY SLIM and RetroFit lamps is equipped with an innovative self-repair system.
In the course of time, some of the LEDs installed in a lamp may occasionally fail. AQUAEL has developed a self-repair system to provide an effective solution to this problem. In the SUNNY version of LED lamps, if a diode stops working, its functions are taken over by the neighbouring diodes, which START EMITTING LIGHT WITH AN INCREASED POWER. Thanks to this, even after the failure of individual LEDs, the lamp continues to operate properly, and the light power and parameters remain unchanged.
In the PLANT version of LED lamps, the self-repair system is based on the presence of ADDITIONAL LEDs that ARE OUT OF OPERATION in a new lamp. This is normal and by design. The additional LEDs are only activated if one of the primary diodes stops working. In this way, the lamp continues to operate properly, and the light power and parameters remain unchanged.
Thanks to the new self-repair system, the LEDDY TUBE RETRO FIT lamps will serve even longer, providing the ideal lighting conditions for observing the aquarium and for the growth of plants.
