The new Kessil AP9X LED has landed! Kessil have completely re-engineered the AP700 to create the ultimate marine LED.
The Kessil AP9X LED Light has been crafted for excellence and superior illumination. Its redesigned optics provide an even light distribution that blankets your aquarium with up to 48" of coverage. This uniform coverage minimises hotspots and creates an effect similar to that of a metal halide/T5 combo. The signature Kessil shimmer effect also gives your tank a beautiful, natural, sunlit look comparable to the shimmer of a metal halide fixture - replicating your own piece of the ocean.
In addition to Kessil's signature Tuna Blue spectrum, the AP9X features a full range of individually adjustable colour channels (red, green, purple) that can be accessed via the Kessil app. Kessil Logic ensures that cosmetic colour settings do not interfere with the core spectrum, allowing users to dial in a preferred colour without disturbing coral health. The AP9X also includes 395nm LED chips, which emit True UVA light for maximum coral coloration.
The AP9X features 55 LED chips in a single array, creating a powerful light source with wide coverage. Maximum penetration reaches up to 30" beyond the water's surface for most reefs. Penetration can be further enhanced by positioning units closer together. The AP9X's advanced dimming mimics natural day/night cycles and lunar phases with smooth dimming down to 0.1%-from a gentle sunrise to the faintest moonlight.
Kessil Ecosystem - With two K-Link and two 0-10V control ports, the AP9X can be easily wired to adjacent Kessil fixtures. Lights in a wired group can then be app-controlled via the AP9X's WiFi connection. A single AP9X can act as the wireless access point for up to 10 X-Series lights and 20 0-10V lights - giving you total control over all of your tanks.
K-Link + WiFi - Multiple-fixture setups can be controlled via individual WiFi connections or daisy-chained together to access up to 32 lights via one master fixture. Don't want WiFi signals or interference? Turn off the WiFi and control the AP9X with the built-in manual controls or the Spectral Controller X.
X-Unleashed - Use Kessil's newly redesigned smartphone app to arrange groups, set schedules, add special effects, and customise colours.
Full Colour Spectrum - In addition to the popular Tuna Blue spectrum, users can add in Red, Green, and Purple (Violet + Indigo) by using the redesigned smartphone app. This opens up unlimited colour combinations for aesthetics while maintaining the performance of the core spectrum.
Crafted for Excellence:
Sleek yet Robust - With design elements inspired by marine fauna, high-performance automotive engineering, and the sun itself, the AP9X boasts a sleek, unobtrusive profile with an aesthetically pleasing touch panel. Not just a box of LEDs-the AP9X compliments the natural beauty of a well-maintained aquarium.
Single Arm Mount - The new AP9X Mounting Arm allows the fixture to be mounted with a single arm - the most light spread from a single arm mount fixture on the market. The integrated swivel joint allows 60 degrees of vertical rotation and 180 degrees of horizontal rotation - Allowing you to adjust your light to the orientation best suited for your tank.
Densest Matrix Yet - The latest iteration of the Dense Matrix array enables them to place the chips closer than ever before. More chips in a tighter space results in better colour mixing and a brighter single point source - more like the sun on a natural coral reef.
Heat Management - The AP9X sports a newly redesigned heat sink and an efficient vortex fan that reduces the accumulation of dust and debris - extending longevity and enhancing efficiency. Such an advanced heat management system also contributes to the low profile form factor.
More Light, Less Heat - More efficient LED chips and better heat management result in less energy being lost as heat. This means more light for your reef with the same power draw as before.
Each box contains Kessil AP9X LED, Power Adaptor, Adaptor Cable, 4x Metal Screw Hook and Hanging Bracket, 3x QR Code Stickers.
