Sicce introduces LED lights

By Leonard Ho - Posted Mar 27, 2012 08:00 AM
Hobbyists may know Sicce as the Italian manufacturer of circulation devices. They are now broadening their aquarium product line to include two new LED lighting fixtures. Sicce's passively-cooled LED lights employ A LOT of LEDs per unit. Read their promotional sheet after the jump.

SicceLOGO.jpgThe new Sicce LED Lights are constructed of acrylic enclosures/bezels with large, top-mounted anodized extruded aluminum heat sinks. Both models are passively cooled.

Unlike the high-output diodes used in most LED lights on the market today, Sicce has chosen to use a lot of low wattage white diodes instead (see specs below). Multiple rows of white diodes are supplemented by higher-output blue diodes.  Both fixtures use only these two LED colors, "blue" and "white," to create a correlated color temperature of 14,000°K.  The blue and white LEDs can be turned on and off independently.


The two new models are:


  • 18.34 x 14.40 x 1.6 inches
  • 110 watts
  • 420 LEDs: 392 12,000-14,000°K + 28 446nm Blue
  • PAR value 245 μmol/m2/sec (measured at 23")
  • Color Temperature: 14,000°K
  • 6 ft cable


  • 25.6 x 14.40 x 1.6 inches
  • 170 watts
  • 630 LEDs: 588 12,000-14,000°K White + 42 446nm Blue
  • PAR value is currently not available
  • Color Temperature: 14,000°K
  • 6 ft cable


According to Sicce, their new LED lights feature:

  • For tanks from 20 to 36 inches long.
  • Sicce LED Lighting models have separate switches for the blue and white LEDs.
  • Each model comes with everything you need for quick and simple installation.
  • High-efficiency LED lamps for maximum lumen output and minimal power consumption
  • Optimized for even illumination over the entire tank
  • Safe, efficient and SILENT heat dissipation without noisy fans
  • Light spectrum does not shift over time
  • Modular design is ready to upgrade when you are.  Units can be easily combined to illuminate larger tanks.
  • Built-in timer with sunrise/sunset program option


Pricing and availability TBA (we have unconfirmed reports the AM466 will be around $1,400 USD).  Advanced Aquarist will share more information as soon as it is available.
