Orphek iCon first impressions by Gary Wilkinson UK


"I have updated my Original Orphek Atlantik units, originally V2.1b later the V4 LEDs and now iCon control boards."


He continues...

"At the same time I have changed to  the iCon aluminium tops and new fans. 
Orphek provided a very useful clear booklet, how to exchange the control boards, the only thing I would add is if your first attempt to pair the unit to your network, first come out of the app and then press the reset button."


"It took about 40 mins for each Atlantik unit. Pairing the lights as a group was very easy.
The lights run very cool with the new tops and fans, you also get some metal posts to link the aluminium sections The lights are running <30C even at max power, this is important for the life of the emitters."



"I have done the standard Helios program, used the cloud setting and engaged lunar mode 
An unexpected change was that the light looks crisper, which is strange as it’s the same LED boards 
So far no glitches with the program the Bluetooth works well, it more user friendly than the older gateway network."


And he concludes:

"Lunar mode is shown on the right, this photo is taken at full moon, the channels used are 1 3456 missing out 2"

MantisReef Here is a super quick shot of the display, I have been using Orphek V4's for about 3 years now. Changed them all out with the Icon upgrade 3 months ago. Really not bad at all, did all 5 in an afternoon with a little bit of help.

BoneDoc full tank shot One thing I really like with the Orphek is how good they look ABOVE the tank. It really makes for an overall pleasing aesthetics if you don’t already have a canopy to hide your lights. Even the BRS team noted how good they look overall above the tank in their lighting showdown.

"3 years in,  can't deny the results. As I looked into my empty tank 3 years ago and waiting for the arrival of my Orpheks. This is what I envisioned. A full blown SPS Dominated 600g system with platter size colonies!  Glad I made the choice of going Orpheks!"

OR2 150/120/90/60 Reef LED Lighting X T5
Orphek has been offering panel style LED lighting solutions for the last 10 years, providing a highly diffused light source and delivering the perfect intensity and spectrum to the reef aquarium in the form of the Atlantik series.

Now combined with our OR3 you can get the ultimate spectrum as if you were using T5s!

The idea was to develop an affordable LED, offering a T5 – like coverage length of the tank, but has all the efficiency, spectrum choice and power associated with LED technology with the following benefits:

  • OR3 bar LEDs typically use 50% less power consumption than T5.
  • Unlike T5 bulbs, which need to be replaced very 6-12 months, LEDs require no maintenance.
  • There is no new acclimation period required for corals – there is with T5 replacement for new bulbs.
  • OR3 bar LEDs have an output of around 2 x that of a comparable T5 bulb – meaning less units are required to fully illuminate the aquarium.
  • OR3 heat sink is around 41C and the heat is dispersed upwards rather than heating the aquarium water.
  • Each OR3 bar has multiple LED color chips providing a balanced spectrum for each bar.
  • OR3 LEDs penetrate the water column giving better performance at depth, providing a shimmer effect to give the aquarium a sharper, colorful visual appearance.
  • OR3 bar LEDs come as standard in 2 spectrum choices with customized options available for special order.
  • Just 2 x OR3 bars, a combination of 1 x Reef Day Plus and 1 x Blue Plus will deliver PAR of ~400 at the surface and ~250 + mid aquarium mounted 20cm above the water level.
