The Kessil A360WE LED aquarium fixture features a new and improved 90 watt LED array that is brighter than previous versions of the A360 fixture. The Tuna Blue uses the latest Kessil patented Dense Matrix LED array with a specially designed reflector system. Hot spots, common with many pendant fixtures, are eliminated with the A360WE.
This fixture uses Kessil Logic color blending technology that allows precise color blending. Other LED fixtures simply vary two color channels to adjust the spectrum. Kessel Logic uses two independent adjustments knobs. One knob adjusts the color spectrum and a second knob is used to control intensity.
This same smart lighting system is used on professional photography lighting where precise control is critical. Kessil Logic allows for easier adjustment of the lighting system using just two knobs. You’ll be able to select and fine-tune the light spectrum because Kessil Logic allows each color channel to be independently tuned to create the best color spectrum to stimulate intense coloration and accelerated coral growth.
Kessil also pre-programs the fixture to always provide the right UV spectrum for coral and plant growth. The beautiful shimmer looks like natural sunlight penetrating the water!
The light can be hung above the aquarium as a single unit or in multiples that can be linkedfor manual or automated programming and control. The updated control interface operates in the 0-10 V DC range and is compatible with a variety ofaquarium controllers.

Rivers to Reef says: There is really no denying that Kessil has some of the best light penetration for an LED light on the market. The A360WE can penetrate three feet of water! If you don't need that kind of light penetration consider getting the A160WE. It covers the same surface area, but it doesn't have the same light penetration.
Remember, if you are switching from an older LED, fluorescent fixture (T5, T8, compact), or even a metal halide you need to acclimate your coral to your new fixture. Do not blast them at full intensity initially! Ramp up the intensity of your LED lights over time (it may be weeks or more) to get them used to the light. Let your coral tell you if the lighting is too high. You might not need to run this fixture, or any other LED fixture for that matter, at 100%.
