The UV spectrum is a segment of light which is notably absent from the range of LED lights now widely available for the aquarium market. VolxJapan (maker of the LeDio LED spotlights) and Eiji at 1.023World are colaborating to develop a true UV LED lamp. What Eiji received from VolxJapan is the Prototype UV LED combined with Ledio7. This Ledio7 with UV is re-designed from original Ledio7 because it should have more protection for Human eyes from the UV. Ledio7(DeepBlue)+UV has 3800lx from 30cm and the value of UV is 0.01mW/cm2. Â This light angle is 60 degree, so this light can emit enough UV to many corals, but the spot light effect will not be as pronounced. The UV and 420nm wavelength neighborhood of light has been an important spectrum for the keeping and coloring of SPS corals and we look forward to seeing more LED lamps delivering these important wavelengths of light to aquarium corals. Ultraviolet light includes a wide range of wavelengths and of course we are talking about the mild UVA spectrum, not the skin cancer causing and germicidal UVC spectrum.
