The new line of Orphek Amazonas LED lights are aimed at replacing metal halides in public and large-scale aquariums. Using the same multi-LED chipset as the Orphek Kaspian, the new Orphek Amazonas eliminated the white LEDs using a wide range of colors to mix a better shade of white.
The Amazonas 80 is an 80W light designed to replace a single 150-250W metal halide bulb and Amazonas 320, a 320W light that features four of the LED chips found in the Amazonas 80, that would replace a 400-1,000W bulb.
A nice feature is its IP67 rated housing and light is completely waterproof so it can even be mounted outdoors or in a harsh environment. It also has flexibility in reflectors with a 15°, 45° and 60° options to match the depth and spread of the applications. For example, the Amazonos 80 fitted with the 60° reflector will cover 1m x 1m at 1m above the water and at 2m hits over a 2m x 2m area.
The main selling point is an affordable (retailing around $300 for the Amazonas 80) waterproof LED that is as easy to change and mount as a but at an affordable cost with better output at a fraction of the power consumption than traditional MH.
The 80W chipset features 80 3W integrated LEDs in a range of colors all driven at 1W using a waterproof light Menwell driver. There are two versions, the Amazonas 80 xp white and Amazonas 80 xp blue with one designed to push out a whiter light and the other hitting more of the blues.
For larger needs with more control, the Amazonas 320 features four LEDs on four independent channels. The Amazonas can be controlled using the IoT gateway and app used for the Oprhek Atlantik series.
