We’ve had a chance to follow up on the Sunbrite LED System which we first reported live from the MAX show and we are very keen as to how Sunbrite is rethinking how to bring viable LED lighting to the marine and reef aquarium. The blend of function and form is an interesting twist on the development of aquarium LEDs. To recap, the SunBrite LED lamps are the shape and size of the familiar T10 form factor yet they are filled with low power LEDs. Instead of trying to develop a few, highly efficient and powerful LED lights which pack a lot of punch, the SunBrite developers have opted to pack each foot of their lamps with 90 low power LEDs. The 1, 1.5, 2, 3, and 4 foot lamps come in single colors only and they are available in 420 actinic, 470 blue, propink, 10K, 16K, 22k and 65K flavors so you can mix and match them to suit your color rendition preference. The lamps have built in drivers and they are intended to be wired up directly to household current so if you want to use these in an existing fluorescent light fixture, you’ll have to wire around the included ballast. If you don’t want to futz with it, SunBrite also makes a light fixture in 20, 24, 36, 48 and 72″ lengths which include a built-in digital timer and a sturdy metal enclosure. The fixtures range in price from $180-260 but we are unclear on the exact breakdown of the bulb prices. SunBrite is looking for resellers of their fledgling aquarium product so if you’re interested, hit em up via sunbritelighting at hotmail. We’ve been gracioulsy allowed to review one of the two foot fixtures and we’ll be reporting back soon on how the reef is taking to the new lights. Make sure to follow the break for a demo video and more pics of the SunBrite LED System.
