Blade Coral Growth
The Blade Grow offers immense power in a thin package. Coral Grow features a LED mix that maximizes spectral peaks needed for coral photosynthesis. Use alone or augment with the Blade Glow for a color combination that fits your needs.
A balance of blue and white diodes efficiently addresses the photosynthetic needs of coral. The Blade Grow delivers output in the deep blue through blue range of the spectrum (400-500 nm) which is proven to be a highly effective marine spectrum range.
The AI Blade utilizes a cluster group configuration. Each Blade size includes roughly one cluster group per foot. Tight grouping and balanced diode placement contribute to the incredible balance and shimmer that the Blade platform delivers. The Blade Coral Grow includes the following 24 diodes per cluster group.
- 12 – Royal Blue
- 6 – Cool White
- 6 – Blue
Optics are one of the most important components of an advanced lighting system. Edgefield™ technology incorporated in the Blade delivers even PAR, smooth color mixing and exceptional spread.
Edgefield optics, designed exclusively for the Blade, provide an incredible, 95 degree spread while achieving unmatched light mixing along the length of the blade. The specular exit surface presents a crisp and natural shimmer in your aquarium.
Tank Rest Included
For Blades sized up to 39.1 inches the Low Profile Tank Rest is included. The tank rest extends up to 4.5 inches on either side of the blade (for a total of 9 inches).
Mounting Clips Included
For Blades over 39.1 inches Blade Mounting Clips are included. These clips are compatible with the AI HMS Single-Arm and HMS Hanging Kit rails. Different application? No problem, the Blade has many other mounting options available or use the clips with your custom mount.
Blade is not only versatile but built to last in the harsh-environment of marine aquariums. Blade meets IP66 standards which indicate the highest protection against particles and a high level of protection against water.
The Blade incorporates a highly efficient heat sink design. Passive cooling means no fan and no air movement or fan noise. This makes the Blade ideal for lighting aquariums in living spaces where less noise is a big plus.
