The AquaConnect SkyLED T5 and LED hybrid is starting to appear in Germany and Europe and we’re liking the sleek form of the fixture. Not a lot of information is out there on this fixture but we were able to grab a couple of snippets from some sites as well as making some deductions from what we can see in the images.
The AquaConnect SkyLED is the base unit for the hybrid model that features a single bank of 50 watt LEDs in the smaller 2 ft. model with 120 watts of LEDs in the larger, 4 ft model. The AquaConnect SkyLED hybrid packs on four HO T5 lamps with two on each side of the LEDs. Large and extremely quiet fans help keep the temperature down and the unit is controllable via three power supplies to give you a good range of options to get the dawn-to-dusk effect going.
Online vendor Mrutzek Meeresaquaristik has the fixture on its site running €891 for the 2 ft. SkyLED hybrid and €1,189.90 for the 4 ft. version. We’re hoping to get some more information on these fixtures to see exactly what the specs are on the LEDs in particular.
