Submersible LED lighting for aquariums

LEDtronics announces the LED Light AquariumBar. Based on patented LED grow light technology, the AquariumBar with its broad-spectrum light output supports and enhances growth and development of all photosynthesizing aquatic organisms such as plants, algae, and bacteria commonly found in both fresh and saltwater aquariums.

LED-AquariumBar is equipped with five LED clusters for maximum light output and can be used in both marine and freshwater aquariums. The packaging is suitable for shelf or hook displays, by itself or in combination with other LED-AquariumBars.

The AquariumBar provides excellent primary and supplemental grow lighting for all types of aquatic plants, algae, corals, and photosynthesizing bacteria. All the AquariumBar's internal parts are conformal coated with a waterproof sealant that meets military specifications. A low voltage design means greater operational safety around wet environments and reduces risks to children and pets.

Low light pollution minimizes interference with an aquarium's existing "view lighting". Its cool operating temperature not only prevents unwanted heating of the aquarium but also eliminates the need for noisy cooling fans. The AquariumBar provides an excellent addition to existing fluorescent white lighting fixtures used for display.

LED-AquariumBar is 21 inches long and 2.5 inches wide. One 5-cluster AquariumBar covers 24 inches of aquarium width (parallel to the bar). The LED-AquariumBar is ideal for marine saltwater aquariums up to 18 inches deep and freshwater aquariums up to 24 inches deep.
