This combination light panel is designed to fit on 18" x 18" x 36" vivariums, also known as the "Skyscraper". Exo-terra makes this size and it's difficult to light up well using off the shelf products, but with a combination of both LED strips and a single large diode LED chip spotlight, you get the best of both types of lighting.
When the light source is 36" high you need the penetrating power of a large diode chip, which comes in 10, 20, 30 and 50 watt sizes. Unless you request otherwise, this light will include the 20w diode, which in my experience is enough for most vivarium situations. If you feel you need more power than that, or have plants with high light needs, please contact me to upgrade to either the 30w or 50w diodes. It's usually just a small up charge.
Along with the large chip diode are six custom spec black aluminum strips that combine white diodes running at 6500K and 3500k, as well as red and blue diodes mixed in for better plant growth.
The large diode is cooled by an aluminum heat sink with a built in fan. The diode and fan is on a separate cable from the strip LEDs so that it can be dialed in separately using a dimmer, which allows you more precise control over the output.
This single light panel comes with:
- one 120 watt driver
- two manual dimmer switches, one for the strips, one for the large diode
- one 6 or 10 foot connection cord
- one 1-to-2-splitter cable
Dimensions (width and depth are within 1/4"):
- 16" inches wide
- 12" front to back
- 1 1/4" high
