produces fantastic aquarium lighting units, and their state-of-the-art Radion XR30w Pro LED Lighting System is no exception to their phenomenal track record.

The Radion XR30w Pro brings professional-grade lighting technology to the consumer and is easily controlled by EcoSmart Live, the web-based aquarium command center provided by EcoTech Marine.

Features

The Radion XR30w Pro comes fully stocked with 42 energy-efficient LEDs in a variety of colors: cool white, deep blue, blue, green, hyper red, yellow, indigo, and ultraviolet. The colors and intensities of the LEDs can be controlled on six channels using EcoSmart Live, or can be manually adjusted to a number of pre-programmed settings.

This lighting system is ideal for aquarists who desire high levels of photosynthetically active radiation, deeply penetrating or widespread light, and broad spectrum coverage.

The actual lighting fixture of the Radion XR30w Pro is rectangular in shape and plugs into a large power supply unit that connects to a wall outlet. The power supply pulls 170 watts from the wall in order to power 155 watts of LEDs.

A great feature of the Radion XR30w Pro is its optional battery backup connection that is available directly on the power supply unit.

The Radion XR30w Pro can be mounted on your tank with EcoTech Marine’s RMS (Radion Mounting System) XR30. The mounting system’s bracket is designed to fit most commercially available aquariums.

The mounting system holds the light 8 inches above the top of the tank. The position of the Radion XR30w Pro can be changed both by rotating the unit and by moving it side-to-side in the RMS XR30.

Additionally, different rail lengths are available to accommodate larger and smaller tanks.

EcoSmart Live

Using EcoSmart Live—which can be run on any computer, tablet, or smartphone—you can set up a daily schedule of adjustments for your Radion XR30w Pro lights. This means that when you are at work and your tank is at home alone, your lights can be set to automatically adjust to provide your corals with high levels of photosynthetically active radiation.

Say hello to healthy, growing corals. Then, when you’ve returned home for the evening and are entertaining your most recent crush, your tank will already be bathed in beautiful light ideal for viewing pleasure. Looks like your Radion lights just became your favorite wingman too!
