Pacific Sun has announced their latest model of the Pandora Hyperion LED lamp: the Hyperion S, described by Pacific Sun as their "shallow water" version. The eight channel multi-colored 200 watt LED+T5 hybrid fixture is wirelessly controlled via bluetooth. The Hyperion S is due out on April 20, 2013 with a retail price of $899 USD ($699 Euro)

The new Pacific Sun Hyperon S

The Pacific Sun Hyperion S employs a new proprietary LED panel that does not include any white LEDs.  Pacific Sun claims the Hyperion S is the first full spectrum LED light that does not use any white diodes. In addition to the 145 watts of LEDs, two 24W T5 fluorescent bulbs allow owners further customization of the color output.

The Hyperion S includes all the bells and whistles of a high-tech LED lighting system such as multi-colored, multi-channel, wirelessly controlled LED unit, all tidily wrapped up in an attractive, slim (less than two inch thick) white housing.  We provide the full general specifications below.
