Orphek to release five new LED products

By Shane Graber - Posted Jun 07, 2011 02:00 PM
We have just received word that Orphek is releasing five new LED products later this month: A submersible, dimmable LED strip, T8/T5 LED tubes, a nano LED bulb, and a new spotlight bulb color. More information after the jump.
Orphek to release five new LED products

The new Orphek PR-S dimmable, submersible LED strip.

These new products will add to their growing LED product line.


T-8 and T-5 LED Tubes

Advanced Aquarist first blogged about Orphek's T-8 LED tubes on May 22.  These are direct replacements for T-8 fluorescents, and can also retrofit into existing T-5 fixtures with the adapter (included with each tube). The tubes are powered by the fluorescent fixture, although minor retrofitting will be required as the fluorescent ballast needs to be removed. Instructions are included.

The T-5 tubes need to be powered by an included small external ballast and will be available in 24, 36, 48, and 60 inch lengths in daylight and blue/UV-violet options.

Available color options:

PR-S”: all white
PR-S-UV”:  White / blue / UV-Violet
ML-S”:         Blue
ML-S-UV”:  Blue / UV-Violet


PR-N7

Using the same body as Orphek's ML7 PAR-30 bulb ("incandescent" screw-in type), the N7 contains 3 white, 3 blue, and 1 UV/true violet emitter, each diode running a two watts. These are also Gen2 diodes, which Orphek claims emits more PUR:watt than any other emitters.

The N7, like the ML7, is dimmable and available in 110V and 220V.  These bulbs are designed as color-enhancing spot-lights.
