I lights deliver a proven spectrum that grows coral & will push coral coloration to the MAX. This newest generation of Primes and Hydras moves forward with that focus and delivers more PAR (Photosythetically Active Radiation) and resulting PUR (Photosynthetically Useful Radiation) increasing the efficiency and value of these lights. Additionally this has been accomplished while enhancing the colors that make coral beautiful to the human eye. The new wide spectrum clusters deliver a CRI (Color Rendition Index) that will not disappoint!.
Redesigning the plastics in the Prime and Hydra lineup has resulted in two major benefits: better efficiency and better aesthetics. Efficiency improvements reduce the demands on active cooling for longer component life. Improvements to design thin the fixtures and reduce their profile and presence over your aquarium.
Water resistance is a major benefit in aquarium lighting - and while the new Prime and
Hydras are not waterproof, design improvements make them more capable of facing
the moisture rich adventures of reef keeping.
A dedicated moonlight LED and channel has been added in the new Prime HD, Prime
FW , Hydra 32HD and Hydra 64HD modules. This allows for independent moonlighting
designed to simulate the natural lunar color and intensity.
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 device.
Additional control options may become available for the new generation Prime and
Hydras over time.
Optics and Output
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 targeted full spectrum, TIR lenses
shape the light’s output and improve its efficiency. The result is more color POP as well
as a slightly wider output area and higher average PAR. A combination LED placement
and lens geometry blend the light from the clusters so that color separation is further
AI’s popular HD functionality, through which a user can route power not in use by
one color channel into another color channel is a much loved feature on the previous
generation HD fixtures. As the new product names imply (Prime 16HD, Hydra 32HD and
64HD) all the new HD lights retain this exciting feature.
Mounting hardware as previously available for Hydra and Prime fixtures will work with the new version lights. The exception is the Hydra Flex arm which will require a different light bracket due to the size difference in the new fixtures. The Flex arm bracket will change with he new fixtures. Older flex arms being used to mount the new lights will need a new light bracket.
The AI Hydra 64HD utilizes the latest LED technology from leading manufacturers, arranged to provide the best performance.
