- EcoTech Marine Radion XR30W (Gen 2) LED Light Fixture
excelent LED light By Paul on 5/31/13Paul would recommend this product to a friendAfter years of have 96w PC on my 125g, I bought 3 of these for my 220g reef tank. These LED will last me years and worht the investment . Amazing light and adjustability. Love the programming feature via the computer. The lights are powerful a illuminate the tank beautifully. Cant wait till the tank gets more corals in it as I'm in the set up stage.
Awesome By Alex on 5/21/13Alex would recommend this product to a friendThis light programs easily and other than not coming with hanging kit I'm very happy with it. Awesome color spectrum and subtle shift through the day!!
Lights are nice; User Interface not so much By Bithunter on 4/22/13Bithunter would recommend this product to a friendI do like the lights; very nice colors and flexibility. However, I think the programing interface is overly complicated. You need a PC/MAC to program. The ecotechlive site is not ready for primetime. Could not get the time to reprogram using the live site. It kept defaulting to GMT. I had to go with the PC client to set the time on the lights correctly.
Each time you program the lights, the program has to be written to the lights themselves.
I also own a bunch of AI lights. I like the controller on the AI lights much better. Especially the ability to reprogram with out PC. It's just a hassle to have to drag out a PC, hook up USB to program the lights. Granted, this should only be needed occasionally. The buttons on are hard to remember what they do. First couple of days I had to refer to the manual to figure the button sequence to control lights locally.
I do understand this is new concept for lights. Previously it was just on/off. Now you are mucking with time and colors.
Top notch By Shawn on 4/11/13Shawn would recommend this product to a friendWhat can I say these light are great the programablty of them set them apart from any other lights I have used. Like the guy here at BRS say it like looking at a real ocean reef vs looking at a photo of a reef. Only negative I can say is I wish you were able to communicate with them wirelessly
Radion GEN 2 By Bob on 4/2/13Bob would recommend this product to a friendWOW, all I can say about this light is GET one, I replaced my 120w chinese LED light with this and WOW, Should now better by now, Buy the best the first time and save money in the long run, best light I have ever seen on a tank!!
Great Product! By Bobby on 3/31/13Bobby would recommend this product to a friendI absolutely love this light. As with all Ecotech products it's built solid. Easy to set up. My SPS are doing great! It took about two weeks for them to adjust but they are looking great. Corals are happy. Fish look beautiful. Very low heat if any. I usually will always post a con about a product however I haven't found one yet. I can't say it's to expensive because it's not in comparison to other led's. Ecotech live is just awesome. Thanks you Ecotech for another amazing product!
Great Product! By Bobby on 3/20/13Bobby would recommend this product to a friendThis light is great! It's very bright and beautiful at 100%. It has a great spread. I'm using 3 units on my 220 gallon reef (72X24X24) and it is perfect. The wireless control, fully customized controls, ease of use, beautiful coloration, and quality of build is what gives this a strong five stars. The unit, as with all Ecotech products, is very well built. I absolutely love them.
This is a must have for any serious reef tank... By Rob Coberg on 12/9/12Rob Coberg would recommend this product to a friendThis will be the second XR30W (GEN 2) for a 75 Gallon reef tank I puttting together right now. I was very happy with it. I love the fact you can replace the leds if they burn out for $30.00 a set..I think that itself
is a notch above most other lights out there. It has storm, cloud cover and lots of other features.
It's a Beautiful Thing! By PryorRods on 12/9/12PryorRods would recommend this product to a friendI jut bought these for another large reef I'm setting up in the house. You'll have to go online to set-up and figure them out as the instruction manual is pretty vague. Because, my tank is 3' deep, I was going to go with the Ai's because of the huge PAR difference over the Radions, but since the price dropped, I figured I'd give them a shot. Very, Very nice!
LED configuration not the same as Generation 1 light By rob knasel Reef Tank Adventure on 12/8/12rob knasel Reef Tank Adventure wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThe LED's are actually 32 not 34 now. If you are adding this light to an existing Generation 1 light, be advised the light spectrum will look different in your tank, through all phases of the program. I have calibrated all of my lights and this one stands out amoungst the rest. This is not just a TIR addition.

how many of these will i need on a 72 gallon bow-front tank?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Billy,
Assuming its your typical 4ft tank then 2 of them should do the trick just fine :-)

Do you have to have a computer to run these lights?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Jim,
You don't need a computer to run them, but it does make the initial programming easier and give you more options. All you do is connect it via a USB cable, set the light to how you want it to operate and then it will save the settings (it doesn't need to stay connected).

How many do I need for a 75G 48X18X24 ?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Davis,
The Radion's are made to cover up to a maximum of a 2ft area. For a standard 75g tank like that you would be looking at 2 of the Radion lights.

would like to know is this the new EcoTech Marine Radion XR30 pro series
Bulk Reef Supply Hey there,
This light is actually the Ecotech Radion (2nd Generation). If your looking for the Ecotech Radion Pro, those can be found right here:
Radion lights will communicate with any EcoSmart “w” enabled VorTech pumps in addition to any future equipment designed to work on the EcoSmart platform. Coordinated night mode, storms and other light- and water-synchronized features are what you can expect from the wireless functionality that comes standard with the Radion.

Connect the Radion XR30w with the EcoSmart Configuration Utility to a Windows PC and create customized lighting periods with fully adjustable spectrum and intensity. Opt in grouping and weather features are also enabled. The Radion is fully compatible with the EcoTech Battery Backup. In the event of a power outage, lack of light energy over the aquarium results in corals switching from photosynthesis (producing oxygen) to respiration (consuming oxygen). When used with a Battery Backup accessory, the Radion emits low levels of light intended to prevent corals from respiring, and therefore; your Radion will help to maintain an oxygen-rich environment for your fish during this critical time period.
