The next generation of CoralCare’s innovative LED fixture is here.

CoralCare Gen2 offers a new, slimmer design, with passive

cooling and wireless control. What’s more, we’ve further refined the

light spectrum and distribution to create a more natural reef appearance, natural light patterns and promote coral growth.

With the second CoralCare generation, you still enjoy the light quality you’d expect from traditional T5 fluorescent or metal halide marine aquarium lighting, but with all the benefits from LED lighting. The lights give very good results for growth of both SPS and LPS corals. CoralCare lighting is designed to achieve an ideal balance of coral growth, natural reef appearance and natural light patterns.

Let life flourish with a wide spectral range. Proper lighting is one of the key aspects when maintaining a marine aquarium with corals and reef fish. The corals need the correct light intensity and spectral content to grow efficiently, but reefers also demand a good color rendering so they can enjoy the brilliantly vivid colors of the corals. The Philips CoralCare spectral distribution is designed to achieve an ideal balance of those two criteria. With the CoralCare Gen2, we’ve further optimized the light formula in order to enhance the natural color rendering in daylight settings and maximize the fluorescence of the corals in evening settings. The new Gen2 design features 68 state-of-the-art LEDs, smartly grouped over two distinct user-controlled channels. This offers you control over a wide range of color points (from natural white to saturated blue), without ever worrying about harming your corals with the wrong spectral content.

Philips CoralCare Gen2 creates a perfect light balance, thanks to its unique light distribution and color mixing solution.

Just as with CoralCare Gen 1, the light is homogeneously mixed and distributed thanks t o the optical light guide and diffuse glass plate. We’ve further refined this with CoralCare Gen 2 by grouping the LEDs in triangular clusters and adding four carefully placed clear areas in the glass plate. The clusters and the emplacement towards each other are deliberately chosen in order to create subtle but natural light patterns in the water. The clear areas in the glass plate add some extra dynamic light effects the moment warm natural color points are selected. This effect mimics the patterns perceived on the ocean floor at noon when the sun is at its highest point. During the evening, when blueish color points are being selected, this dynamic effect fades just like it does in nature.

The chosen architecture results in an ideal balance between efficiency, uniform light distribution in the aquarium, color homogeneity and the right level of light dynamics.

Your CoralCare Gen2 LED fixture can be controlled wirelessly or with PC. Besides that it also includes 0-10V for third party controllers. And what’s more, your new wireless controller is also compatible with CoralCare Gen1 fixtures. Choose from user friendly preprogrammed lighting schedules, or easily create a custom 24 hours lighting schedule to suit your coral needs. You can even share your lighting schedules with other reefers! Direct control is useful for maintenance, or checking on your reef inhabitants. There’s an acclimatization phase for introducing new corals, or installing new CoralCare lamps, allowing you to gradually increase the intensity of the light to match the needs of your corals. The single box system (with drivers integrated) also includes a hanging kit for quick and efficient installation, with adjustable height and positioning.
