What do you see from the two figures below? Figure 1 shows the spectrum distribution of our latest product, Blaze series X-60, which is 90% in completetion. Figure 2 shows the result for a Blaze series M-60S unit. One should have noticed that for the newly developed product, the light ranging from 390-430nm is significantly enhanced in comparison with that in a Blaze series M-60S unit. Moreover, the valley shown between 450nm and 530nm for a M-60S unit is also compensated in the new product. What do those changes mean to the hobbyists? The enhancing of the shorter wavelength part can bring out the colors of the corals better, while the addition of Cyan light (490-510nm) can make the whole light spectrum distribution more similar to that measured in the wild under sea water.
The X-60 is mainly composed of LEDs of various colors, including 400nm Near UV, 420nm Violet, 450nm Royal blue, 470nm Blue, 500nm Cyan and 6,500K Cool white. These 6 types of LEDs are further assigned in two independent channels. For Channel 1, the LEDs are 470nm, 500nm and 6,500K. For Channel 2, they are 400nm, 420nm, 450nm and 470nm. These two independent channels can be controlled by the built-in controller, which allow users to adjust either the ratio between two channels and the total intensity output of the whole unit.
As for the most concerned light intensity, the lux value detected under 45cm for X-60 is ~22,000. For a Blaze series M-60S, which consumes the same wattage (100W), the value is around 18,000. But please keep in mind that the new product has dominant shorter wavelength light which contribute to less lux value. This implies that the effective light energy is much more than the reading. The prototype of this new product will be sent to certain research institutes for further test and evaluation soon. We will soon get more information and will keep you posted then.
