Completely solderless assembly. Matching connectors are included. YES


The LED assembly must be used with matching LED drivers. If using with ReedLedLab controller and drivers, control channels on the drivers can be configured by jumpers. Instructions.



  • Full-spectrum
  • Small dimensions (size is determined by secondary optics)
  • 12 power LEDs, Latest C35 generation by Semileds
  • 5 LED types combined in 5 independent channels, to provide unique control over spectrum*
  • Sufficient radiation power and suitable spectrum for best coloration and growth in a freshwater planted tank
  • Minimized “Disco effect”, due to densely populated LEDs and the use of hybrid secondary optics with diffusers
  • A completely solderless solution simplifies the assembly
  • 100% quality control for all LEDs on the assembly
