Read our previous product coverage to learn about Giesemann's FUTURA and TESZLA LED lights.

The following profiles will soon be available for download from the Giesemann website and via their connected support forums. To use the profiles, you must be running the current FUTURA-BT software with Load/Save feature via either PC or MAC:

  • Shallow Lagoon Day-cycle
  • 5 meter Day-cycle
  • 10 meter Day-cycle
  • 20 meter Day-cycle
  • Growth Priority
  • Colour Priority

Four of the first six profiles replicate natural equatorial daylight cycles at various depths.  Two additional profiles are programmed for optimal coral growth and for optimal coral coloration.  FUTURA users can, of course, fine-tune their lighting to best suit their needs and preferences.  These profiles are designed to simplify the initial programming and to serve as a starting point for customization.

Note: Each profile is pre-configured to a maximum peak intensity of no more than 50% on its highest channel to minimize light shock.  Users are provided instructions on how to increase intensity over time if desired as well as add additional features such as cloud cover simulation and advanced sun shift programming.

Additional profiles for Giesemann will also release profiles for their TESZLA LEDs soon.
