The ecrof-LED is a 16W high-powered LED aquarium lamp that really has a unique form factor we haven’t seen before. The ecrof-LED may be a rectangular box shape but instead of having the LED emitters being spread along the longest and widest side, the ecrof-LED focuses the light through two lenses on one edge of the fixture. While there aren’t massive details yet on this Japanese light, we were able to compile some details to share to give you more of an idea of what this lamp is all about. Click through for a nice little video of the ecrof-LED in action and some more pics.
The svelte body of the lamp reminds us of the Kessil lights with a Macbook touch. This tight package elegantly trades off tons of heatsinking for efficient air movement is just slightly larger than a standard deck of playing cards with two lenses on one end and two control knobs and timer switch on the other. Designed to clamp on, the ecrof-LED has a nifty swivel clamp in the same brushed metal look as the main light.
Packed inside the light are six Cree XP-E LEDs with 40 deg. optics that are actively cooled to keep the operation temperature in check. Each bank of LEDs are controllable from off, then 20 to 100% with an independent knob for each channel. The ecrof-LED also has a simple light timer allowing you to run your light for up to 20 hours straight.
The silent operating fans are rated at only 16 dB and also have built in temperature sensors that won’t shut off until the internal temperature reaches a safe point. The internal sensors will cut the light off in case the light temperature gets too high.
This version of the ecrof-LED has a combination of three blue Cree XP-E and three royal blue Cree XP-E LEDs to be a perfect supplemental lighting but we are hoping there are other combinations of white, blue and white and possibly even some RGB LED combinations in the works. These lights will most like be priced around $400 USD.
