Kyocera Develops World’s First Full-Spectrum LED Aquarium Lighting
Kyocera today announced the development of the world’s first full-spectrum LED lighting for aquariums. Kyocera’s high-color-rendering LED lighting combines its proprietary violet LEDs and RGB (red, green and blue) phosphors to create lights close to natural sunlight at specific underwater depths. By combining violet LEDs and RGB phosphor blending technology, Kyocera’s high-color-rendering LEDs produce light extremely close to natural sunlight. By customizing the spectrum, it reproduces the light close to that of the natural habitats of corals and water plants at specific underwater depths.
Kyocera’s proprietary ceramic technology provides excellent durability in an LED light. In addition, an air-cooling function utilizing air convection offers a high output while maintaining high color rendering. Assuming this light would be used near the sea, Kyocera developed a robust design with a heat dissipation structure to use natural air. As this design does not require a fan, which was traditionally considered one of the main reasons for product breakdown, the new aquarium LED light can minimize failures.
Kyocera’s aquarium LED lighting will be available to the Japanese market in the middle of August in four types: Marine Blue reproducing spectrum of sunlight at 2.5m below sea level. Aqua Blue reproducing spectrum of sunlight at 11m below sea level.Natural White reproducing similar spectrum of sunlight above ground and Deep Blue for ornamental purposes.
