Pacific Sun Introduce Metis Led
Fixtures build with newest XP-G and XM-L Cree led chips – suitable for aquariums with mixed – LPS and SPS corals. Fully controllable.
As a result of more than a year of dedicated work, we have developed a product whose task is to simulate lighting that in every way is most similar to natural sunlight. The integrated intelligent computer makes it possible to simulate natural sunset and sunrise, moonlight according to the lunar calendar (all transitory phases, from new moon to full moon), simulate overcast conditions, as well as fine-tune the lighting - its temperature and brightness - by means of the integrated software that simulates the seasons of the year. What is more - the user is able to access other advanced features of the light control, such as changing the color temperature (in the 13,000 - 23,000K range), altering light intensity according to a curve (PAR Activity), and controlling the lamp's cooling system. All of these parameters are configured through a clear and easy-to-use application run on a PC-based computer. Communication with the lamp is maintained via wireless Blue tooth interface. Thanks to all these features you can conveniently adjust and change the parameters of your lamp while sitting on a couch and enjoying your aquarium.
Thank you again and enjoy owning the future of lighting!
Metis LED from Pacific Sun is packing a serious LED package
The Metis LED is Pacific Sun's newest solution for high performance LED reef aquarium lighting. Since Pacific Sun has been designing and manufacturing original LED lights for the aquarium hobby just about longer than anyone, their Metis is probably the first 4th generation LED light in the aquarium industry, and with this succession comes a wealth of the best LED lighting features that reef keepers are looking for.
Our favorite detail about the Pacific Sun Metis LED light is it’s incorporation of four types of LEDs running at a couple different power levels. This Metis LED fixture will have an even ratio of four different led types on board: Neutral white and cool white Cree XPG LEDs running at 5 watts and blue and royal blue Cree XPE running at 3 watts each.
As great as humans are at designing and engineering delicate electronic products, machines simply assemble them better and all the electronic parts of the Metis LED are assembled by machines – not by humans like with previous Pacific Sun LED lights. This means that all electronic parts are mounted with very high precision – and Pacific Sun LED will be able to extend the duration of their product warranty of the Metis LED, although we do not know exactly what that will be.
The outer cover (housing) of the Metis LED is made from stainless steel which is available in two choices of finishes- pearl cosmic white and space anthracite which is probably similar to a dark coal color. Of course the Pacific Sun LED has the same external control ability of each LED channel via Pacific Sun controllers and the GHL ProfiLux so you can get your lightning effects, dawn to dusk simulations, lunar cycle and maybe even a little cloud cover action.
Metis LED lights are available in three different sizes:
- 2x100W – 33.5″/850mm – suitable for aquariums up to four feet/120cm £789.99P
- 3x100W – 49″/1250mm – suitable for aquariums up to five feet/160cm £1,145.99P
- 4x100W – 65″/16500mm – suitable for aquariums up to 6 feet/ 200-210cm £1.1549.99P
