• Ecotech Marine to Release Radion XR15wPRO

    The new Ecotech Marine Radion XR15wPRO is here

    Radion XR15wPRO

    We are pleased to announce that the Radion XR30 will be getting a new little brother! EcoTech Marine has been working tirelessly to create a new, smaller Radion LED to compliment the highly successful XR30w. The Radion XR15wPRO features the same great spectrum, same features and same warranty as the XR30wPRO. With one cluster, half the wattage, a 24″ coverage area, and a lower price point, the XR15wPRO is the perfect solution for small to medium-sized tanks where the full output of the XR30w platform is not necessary.

     XR15wPRO FAQs:

    Q: How do I pre-order and when will the fixtures begin shipping?

    A: Ecotech Marine expects to begin shipping out orders by mid July and it takes 2 days for the time Ecotech ships to arrive at Aquarium Specialty.  In stock now – click here.

    Q: What is the MRP of the XR15wPRO?

    A: $449USD

    Q: What is the coverage of an XR15wPRO?

    A: 2x2ft.

    Q: Why is the spread almost as much as an XR30 model light?

    A: Spread is more of a factor of optics than wattage or clusters. The XR15wPRO comes with Wide Angle TIR Optics installed standard so the spread from one cluster is not much less than the spread from two clusters located inches apart on an XR30. What is different however is the PAR at the same % output. You will achieve less PAR with an XR15wPRO versus an an XR30 model. The XR15wPRO is ideal for the many commercially available shallow tanks where PAR at depth is not necessary.

    Q: What is the recommend aquarium size for using an XR15wPRO?

    A: Any customers who are purchasing or setting up a small cube style or shallow all-in-one tank will benefit from purchasing 1-2x XR15wPROs vs. the XR30 platform. Example: 24″ x 24″ Cube (qty. 1 each), 48″ x 24″ (qty. 2 each)

    Q: I have seen pictures of a mounting bracket for the XR30 – will there be a mounting bracket for the XR15wPRO?

    A: Yes, EcoTech will begin shipping the RMS mounting system for both the XR15wPRO and XR30 model lights in Q3, 2014. Comprehensive information for that product will be provided next month (July).  Also, BioTek Marine will be coming out with it’s own XR30wPro mounting brackets sometime during the month of July and will be taking Pre-Orders soon.  The Radion XR30 tank mount is currently available here.

    Q: I have heard rumors that there will be a freshwater version of the XR15 called the XR15 FW

    A: The rumors are true – XR15 FW will be launched after the release of the XR15wPRO. The output, price and configuration will be different than the saltwater oriented models.

    Q: Warranty?

    A: Fixture 1 year, LEDs 2 Years.
