Kessil A360W-E WIDE Lens, Controllable LED Aquarium Light.
KESSIL® LIGHTING ANNOUNCES LATEST INNOVATION IN LED AQUARIUM LIGHTS
A360 series introduces Kessil Logic™ and external controllability
Kessil® Lighting, a leading designer and manufacturer of high-quality LED aquarium lights, proudly announces the release of the A360N and A360W models. Based on the award-winning A350/A350W platform, winner of the Reef Builders 2012 LED Showdown, the A360 series brings new features and innovations to the industry and raises the bar for the competition.
The A360 features Kessil's new proprietary Kessil Logic™, a unique form of spectral intelligence developed for precise color blending and optimal coral growth. In this new design, instead of varying the light intensity of two different channels to find the desired color and intensity mix, users can select the perfect spectrum and color with one knob and then adjust the intensity with the other. Kessil Logic™ will not only dramatically improve the user experience, it will also boost the light output at both ends of the spectral tuning range by as much as 30%.
In addition to its enhanced manual controllability, the A360 comes with a pair of ports that allows the fixture to be governed by external devices. This new control interface operates within a 0-10Vdc 10VDC range, making it compatible with several popular aquarium external controllers. When daisy-chained in series without an external controller, the first A360 acts as the master unit propagating its settings to all other lights in the chain.
"We continually strive to bring great innovation to this industry," says David Lowry, Kessil Sales Manager. "Adding Kessil Logic™ to Dense Matrix™ LED makes the A360 a product that is truly one of a kind!"
Beautiful shimmering effect gives your tank a natural, sunlit look rivaling MH. It's like connecting with your own piece of the ocean.
Independently adjustable color channels enables tuning a preferred color within the spectral range thousands of research and testing hours determined to be the optimal spectral points for coral growth and color.
Dense Matrix LED™ technology blends different light wavelengths before they leave the light, providing uniform color throughout the tank. Single light source eliminates spotlight effect, spreading powerful light over a wide area.
No matter which spectral point is chosen with the tunable spectrum, proprietary blend of precision UV light encourages coral color.
Different lens options let you decide between maximum penetration or maximum coverage area. Engineered for long life, quiet operation, efficient cooling and maximum performance, all in a compact, low maintenance and attractive design.
On/off timing, intensity and spectrum are adjustable with a 0~10V external controller. Lights can also be daisy-chained without an external controller so adjustments to one light control all others.
*Color temperature for reference only, and is not a direct measurement of CCT
Kessil Logic™ enables equal intensity across all spectral points. From Sky Blue to Deep Ocean Blue and everything in-between, Kessil Logic™ ensures consistent illumination throughout the light's adjustable range.

Very nice light Review by Merlin
Lights been set up for about a week and so far I'm happy with it. This light is replacing a 150w HQI pendant over a 50gal 36x18x18 high light planted tank with co2 injection. I was a bit worried that it wouldn't look bright enough. I tried a couple of the A150's a couple years ago and immediately sent them back once I saw how dim they looked. I'm happy to report that it produces plenty of light and all my plant are responding with good fast growth. I did not purchase the controller so it's just controlled by a timer. I do plan on eventually purchasing a controller to be able to simulate dusk and dawn. I've also used BML which is also a nice bright led but I prefer the Kessil because it blends the light better and doesn't produce that disco effect which I get with the BML. I'll update my review when I have a bit more experience with the review. Also I rate four stars because I think there's still room for improvement with all LED's mainly with the price still needing to come down a lot. (Posted on 2/7/2015)
