The Panorama Retro 36 from Ecoxotic is a larger LED retro fit kit which was designed to suit the needs of medium to larger tanks. Featuring 36 LEDs running a total of 42 watts, the Panorama Retro 36 has a balanced 2:1 ratio of white to blue LEDs with 24 10K white LEDs and 12 royal blue LEDs with an emission peak at 455nm. Measuring in at about 9 x 9″ and 2.5″ thick, the Pano-retro 36 is ideally suited to fastening right into your existing canopy, irregardless of whether you have a shallow canopy for fluorescent lighting or a deeper one for halide pendants. Part of the reason for the slimness is that the Panorama Retro 36 uses a meanwell driver which is enclosed in a remote and protected driver box. The Panorama Retro 36 uses six reflectors which each cradle six LEDs and columnate much of the stray light with great efficiency and reduced cost. The sensitive electronics are protected by a well sealed lid which also sports the diffusing element for more even light distribution. The Panorama Retro 36 will retail for about $340 and should start shipping to vendors here shortly in the first part of August. The Pano-Retro 36 is a great LED retrofit solution for people looking to outfit their tank with more than accent LED lighting and it effectively replaces up to four 12 watt Panorama modules with a smaller footprint and a single power cord.
