Orphek Osix – OR3 LED Bar iCon Smart Dim Controller Launch

by | Mar 8, 2023 | Equipment | 0 comments

Orphek officially announces the launching of Osix – The OR3 Bar iCon Smart Dim Controller!

Osix is a smart device with iCon technology that allows you to program, control, monitor, and dim your OR3 Reef Aquarium LED Bars and integrate them with Orphek iCon LED solutions.

ONE SMART DEVICE THAT WILL CHANGE THE WAY YOU HAVE BEEN REEFING!

BEST SPECTRUM BY DAY + REAL NATURAL MOONLIGHT BY NIGHT:

  • Osix allows you to get the best spectrum created by Orphek during the day with 1 – 100% dimming range.
  • Osix allows you to combine this with their moonlight spectrum during the night with a 10,000% (0.01 to 1%) dimming range.

Osix’s 10,000% dimming system gives you optimal coral growth coloration and health.

Like most living creatures, coral and fish need a dark period to rest. According to research, corals must have a period of darkness to achieve optimal coral growth coloration and health.

Ordinary dimming systems offer you a 1% to 100% dim range. This is appropriate for day time, but not for night time.

WHAT ABOUT ONE BLUE LED FOR MOON CYCLE?

For starters, the Moon spectrum is not blue. It reflects visible light emitted by the sun, so it is full spectrum.

Second, the 1-100% dimming range of the one blue LED for night and moon cycles is not advisable, because this single LED still creates photosynthetic activity.

During a Moon Cycle, for each phase of the Moon, this one LED progressively increases its PAR: first day = 1%, second day = 2%… and on the 15th day, at full moon, it will reach a peak of 15%.

That means that the corals in this environment will continuously be in photosynthetic activity, generating residual energy inside of them. It also means that this 1 LED that works at night with a 0-100% dimming system of light will continuously disturb your fishes’ circadian rhythm and all biological clocks of the marine creatures in your tank.

ORPHEK’S APPROACH

Relying on decades of academic research, Orphek R&D Teams developed and engineered the One and Only Real Moon Cycle in LED Reef lighting solutions, reproducing Nature at its fullest.

How Osix is changing the game

Osix allows you to correct biological clocks and create an optimal environment for coral spawning while getting the best spectrum for coral health, growth, and color pop.

  • Osix allows you to use Orphek 10,000% dimming technology for Moon cycle.
  • Osix allows you to program dimming progression 24Hs year round, mimicking Nature.
  • Osix allows you to choose the channels you will run your moonlight cycle with for full customization!
