Aqua Illumination announces Prime HD LED
The Prime HD retains the same form factor and feature set as the original Prime (notably built-in WiFi control and integration with AI's current LED systems). The Prime HD still utilizes a single 13-LED puck like the original, but it has been modified with new mix of LEDs and a 10% boost in power (55 watts vs 50 watts). The new LED puck is configured in the following way:
- 3x Cree Cool White XP-G2
- 3x Cree Blue XP-E2
- 3x Cree Royal Blue XT-E
- 1x SemiLED 415nm Violet
- 1x Cree Green XP-E2
- 1x OSRAM Deep Red OSLON
- 1x SemiLED 405nm UV
Comparing the supplied spectrum analysis, the Prime HD outputs more light around the "actinic" (400-420nm) region than its predecessor.
Available June 15, 2016, the retail prices are:
- USD $225 (before sales tax)
- GBP 230£ (includes VAT)
- Euros 265€ (includes VAT)
Note: There are no upgrade path available to original Prime owners.
