[December 2, 2013, Allentown, PA]—EcoTech Marine is proud to announce the launch of its latest product, the Wide-Angle Total Internal Reflection (TIR) Lens, which provides a wide spread option for larger aquariums. The lens will be sold as an accessory for new and existing Radion fixtures.
Optimized for the highest PAR possible over a wider coverage area, this lens accessory allows an aquarist to customize their Radion fixture to trade light penetration for coverage. Extremely useful for shallower aquariums (up to 24” deep) or for non-SPS dominated aquariums, this accessory adds a great deal of flexibility to the application of Radion fixtures. It is especially useful on tanks with dimensions that result in light coverage where one Radion may be insufficient but two lights are excessive, such as on 36” wide aquariums
“We are committed to increasing the value of our products by improving their flexibility and capability, not just for those starting with the EcoTech brand – but also for our loyal customers who have made us the company that we are ,” said Tim Marks, President. “The Wide-Angle TIR Lens can be credited directly to the insight and input provided by our hobbyist community. We promised future upgrades for the Radion lighting platform, and we continue to deliver on that promise.”
The Wide-Angle TIR lens is designed to achieve a 36×36” spread at approximately 9” above the aquarium versus a 24×24” spread for the standard TIR lens. This increased spread is achieved by diminishing the peak PAR achieved at the center of the fixture. The kit can be installed on all Radion LED fixtures sold to-date.
