The Photon Series is Reef Breeders’ flagship light. Designed for reef tanks from the beginning, the Photon V2+ brings refinement, style and power to your aquarium at an affordable price.
The Photon V2+ adds an upgraded controller to the Photon V2s. Our new controller is very similar in how it is programmed, simply enter the intensity you would like for each hour during the daylight and night time cycle. However the V2+ Controller takes those one hour steps, and automatically splits each hour into 10 small ramping increments. That means smoother ramping and more realistic transitions between night and day.
The Photon V2+ uses 5 watt Cree XT-Es, and 3 watt Cree, Semi, and Osram diodes, bringing the Photon V2+ up to date with the latest in LED technology. There are also 6 dimming channels, so you can have precise control over every color.
Our layout is based on years of reef keeping, research, and consulting with experts and renowned hobbyists. We target both chlorophyll and the accessory proteins and symbiotic bacteria in coral tissues which aide in growth and color. Just ask one of our customers- our layout is one of the best around and has been for years!
Each light is now made with a slim, 100% extruded aluminum case which will not rust in a marine environment and is built to last. Each light includes adjustable tank mounting legs as well as the standard hanging set. Alternatively, you can use the T track on top of the light with your own bolts, for almost limitless mounting configurations.
The Photon V2+s are cooled with silent, temperature-controlled fans. The Air moves over the heat-sink and never comes into contact with the internal electronics, keeping all components cool and dry.
The new Photon V2+ includes a wireless hand-held controller that can program multiple Photon V2+ units at the same time. (Note: The new remotes are not compatible with the original V2- however upgrade kits are available). You can program the light to change all 6 channels every hour for a sunrise, sunset, and moonlight simulation. The new smart controller will then take that hourly program, and automatically break it into 10 smooth ramping points. Because of the WiFi signal the controller uses, you can even program your lights through a canopy while comfortably seated across the room.
The ReefBreeders Photon V2+ is backed in the USA by our full 2 year warranty, which covers parts, labor, and shipping for the entire fixture and controller, both ways.
