The Angel Plasma fixtures from EuroQuatics offers the aquarium hobby some of the most refined aquarium lights using this cutting edge HID lighting technology. Since EuroQuatics is a Gavita company the Angel Plasma fixtures borrow heavily from Gavita fixtures we’ve seen in the past, with both a sealed solid state unit and an air-cooled model which can easily have its heat vented away from an aquarium display.
Both of Euroquatics’ Angel Plasma fixtures have a potentiometer for controlling the intensity of the plasma lamp manually, being able to lower the power as far as 20% on what is essentially an electrode-less metal halide . Furthermore, the solid state Angel Plasma AP270 and air-cooled Angel Plasma AP270AC will be available with two choices of lamp coloration; the “cool light” 41.01 emitter with a color rendition index of 75 and the “sunlight” 41.02 with a CRI greater than 94.
To further customize the performance of the Angel Plasma lights Euroquatics is offering both fixtures with two choices of reflectors. There will be a deep penetrating reflector with a 60 degree angle and a shallow, light-dispersing reflector with an approximate angle of 120 degrees which is more suitable for broad coral growing tables.
It’s a good thing that Euroquatics is making their Angel Plasma fixture available in two choice of fixtures, two choices of lamps and two choice of reflectors because when you invest in a lamp with a rated life of 30,000 hours or about 8 years of daily use, you want to be sure its exactly what you need. The Angel Plasma fixture will retail for $999 when it becomes available later this year.
