I've never had orphek lights, but they seem like incredible quality lights so I will need to give them a try some day.

I have a silly question about the new light you guys recently released. Does the true infrared led diode (850nm or so) emit any visible light, or does it just look like a dead diode when it is on?

Ive heard nothing but nice things about you guys!
Im also planning an upgrade and strongly considering your lights, especially since your spectrum go up to 850 and I think the Radion Pro die off after 6 or 700.

Not just the radion pro, but pretty much every other led out there fades off at 660nm which is the red leds. The orphek dies off over 660 as well but then hits the tank again with the 850nm. Between 660 and 850 its pretty dead if you look at their spectrum chart.

Hi Bioman, thanks for notice ,
In this image can see the deferent btw the Atlantik v4 the line in RED,

Looks like a dead LED. Most people cannot see light above 700nm. The infrared does something to excite the coral somewhat. https://orphek.com/atlantik-v4-reef-aquarium-led-lighting-breaking-new-spectrum-and-par-records/

It does bring out some color in SPS corals but it also grows algae like crazy and it isn't needed by the corals.
Im considering these lights, and since I think the closer we get to replicating the sun the better, can you tell me how you came to this conclusion.

I personally experienced it. In addition Google it and it will be confirmed.
are you talking about the 660nm or the 850nm. I know its true regarding the 660nm reds, but I dont know where the information about the 850nm would be as I have never seen a light with it before this one.
