    AI Nano Sol

    At last, we can show you the latest creation from Aqua Illumination–say hello to the AI Nano Sol LED. We’ve been biting our tongues on this one over the past few months and finally Chris Clough and the AI team are ready to unveil their latest creation at MACNA. Here’s an official sneak peak.

    The AI Nano Sol features half the LED power as it’s larger brethren, with four, triple up clusters of Cree XP LEDs. The AI Nano Sol will be made available in Sol White (2 White XP-G : 1 Blue XP-E) and Sol Blue (1 XP-E Royal Blue : 1 XP-E Blue : 1 XP-G White).

    All of this is to be expected if you were to down size the full size Sol, but it is the top interface that really separates this nano light. With the AI Nano Sol users can control their LED intensity and color balance with a simple touch of a finger.

    Using the touch interface, shown at top in the image above and denoted by the +- bar, Nano Reefers can control the intensity of their whites, blues and royal blues. Not only is this a cool way to control LEDs, for smaller tanks it eliminates cord clutter from a separate controller that can be more distracting on smaller sized aquariums.

    The AI Nano Sol is also a great addition for those looking for that extra bit of punch along side their existing lighting–whether that is MH, T5 or even larger AI Sols. Keep an eye out for hands on photos from MACNA.

      Any idea on pricing, is it half of the full size single unit?
