Orphek won’t be unveiling their newest LED light, the Atlantik Compact, until Reefapalooza Orlando this weekend but we’ve got an exclusive sneak peek at the new goods. As you can imagine, the compact version of the Atlantik LED is smaller than its predecessor, with a shorter length and overall more squared out footprint.
The housing for the Atlantik Compact LED features the same white acrylic and perforated aluminum that typifies the look of Orphek’s LED fixtures with the new smaller light clocking in at 13.5 by 9 inches in area and just under three inches thick. The Atlantik Compact uses up to 100 watts of power spread across 64 LEDs and four color channels.
42 of the LEDs are discrete, single color diodes while the other 12 are dual chip LEDs with “wide spectrum white + UV” to thoroughly round out the spectrum. Channel one has 12 x 18,000K white LEDs, channel two has 12 royal blue and 6 standard blue LEDs, while channels three and four control the dual-chip LEDS that range from 395, 410 and 420nm LEDs for the ultraviolets and 6,000K & 18,000K for the broad spectrum whites.
This weekend we are also expecting Orphek to show off their new Helix 5000 protein skimmer with the interesting dual needle-wheel design concept.
