By introducing the HYDRA 64HD with even more LEDs better colour mixing, wider spread, more colour, more compact, more water resistant, and more refined, all without sacrificing anything that made the 52HD, great. Aquaillumination has always listened to the feedback from hobbyist, retailers and aquaculture facilities. As time goes on, they continue to shape their lighting products to meet and exceed the expectations of the community, for better performance, greater reliability and improved ease of use, understanding that to be your first choice for aquarium lighting they must always be delivering the best value in performance, features and support.
- More LEDS
- More PAR
- More Spread
- Improved Optic Design
- Improved Water Resistance
- Thinner Profile
- Dedicated Moonlight Channel
- Wider Spectrum (channels)
- Easier and Faster to Connect to MyAi app
Redesigning the plastics in the Hydra line-up has resulted in two major benefits: greater efficiency and better aesthetics. Efficiency improvements reduce the demands for active cooling resulting in longer component life, and by reducing the profile depth has enhanced the presence of the light over the aquarium.
Water resistance is a major benefit in aquarium lighting - and while the new Hydras are not waterproof, design improvements should make them more resilient to accidental splashing and environmental moisture.
Output in terms of PAR, color mixing and spread are all improved with the new fixtures. The incorporation of more LEDS results in a more complete full spectrum and TIR lenses which shape the light to its most efficient and effective result in both more colour POP as well as a slightly wider output area. LED placement and lens geometry blend the light from the clusters so that colour separation is further reduced. A dedicated moonlight LED and channel has been added in the new Hydra 64HD fixtures. This allows for independent moonlighting programmes that will deliver the desired aesthetic without needing to be a part of your primary schedule or risking over exposure for your livestock.
When HyperdriveTM HD Technology was introduce with the previous generation of AI lights it revolutionised the way that the LED colours could be controlled, bringing more power and colour where you want it for your corals and fishes, plus the freedom to use your smartphone or mobile device as a controller. This unique innovation in aquarium lighting still leads the way and allows you to direct power from the LED colours you have turned down to use with the colours you want to turn up, providing you with access to the maximum power output of your light, regardless of your choice of spectrum and creating the most vivid colours in your tank you have ever seen. By coupling HD technology with the latest TIR colour blending lenses we can direct all of the light into the aquarium, exactly where it is needed, providing optimum PAR with minimal light loss or annoying glare for the observer.
..... Brilliantly Simple and Brighter than Bright.
SIMPLE BUILT-IN CONTROL
Control on the lights will use the existing myAi app which is free, simple and very quick to program offering onsite direct BLE connection through your smart mobile device. Additional control options may become available for the new generation Hydras over time.
Schedule Mode - The intuitive schedule mode is so easy to program you will have plenty of time for more important tasks, like enjoying your corals.
Easy Setup - Want an even easier way to program your lights? Your covered. The Easy Setup wizard is a breeze.
Acclimation - Installing new equipment can be stressful for your livestock. Acclimation mode provides the gentle transition they need to adapt and thrive.
Manual Mode - Kelvin Set your lights to the exact colour temperature your corals need with the handy Kelvin wheel. Then set the intensity with the inner wheel.
