April has been a busy month for Pacific Sun, who have recently announced two very capable light fixtures that blend LED and T5HO lighting technologies together into a single fixture. We already introduced the Ariel LED/T5HO hybrid last week, and today we’re focusing on its little brother, the Pandora Hyperion S.
Much like the Ariel, the Pandora Hyperion S features LED panels flanked by T5HO fluorescent tubes. The difference between the two fixtures is really just the scaled back firepower and the smaller size. Where the Ariel had four T5HO bulbs and multiple LED panels, the Pandora Hyperion S has just two of the T5 fluorescents and a single 145w LED panel. The “S” in the fixture’s name stands for “shallow water”, meaning this version of the light comes without the powerful white LEDs needed for significant depth penetration.
