What if i have more than 2 lights? Do i need multiple controllers?
Question by: Garrett Herrmann on May 8, 2015 1:36:00 PM
Great Question! You will only need one controller for multiple lights on one tank, simply use the kessil link cable to connect the lights and program both from a single controller.

Can these be used to control the Kessil A150's?
Question by: Andrew F. on Jul 24, 2016 11:12:00 AM
Hi there,
The A150 series of lights are not controllable by an external controller. The Spectral Controller is intended to be used with the A160 or A360 series of lights.

  • Excellent Controller By Reeflover on 4/27/2017

    I give it a 5 but...... Please be advised when setting up your light schedule that it MUST run on Military Time! If you try to run regular time ( 1:00 ) @ 1:00 instead of 13:00 hrs you will be lost & it's not in the instructions to leave on Military time! Other than that it's awesome & works like a charm!
  • excellent controller By choss on 2/20/2017

    Easy to program, it comes with a nice acclimation mode feature that I often use when introducing new corals. I'm able to control 2 lights independently. Only feature I would like to see improve is that the controller only allows 5% increases in power. I would have liked smaller % increases
  • Easy to use, low cost controller. By Zachary on 11/14/2016

    If you're like me and you don't want an apex controller, the kessil controller is for you. Its super easy to program, and the acclimation mode makes it even better so you don't have to worry about frying your corals. Definite must for anyone with Kessil lights.
  • Very satisfied By Emelito on 11/4/2016

    Happy and content for buying this product simple and efficient.
  • Worth every penny By Lance on 8/18/2016

    This controller is exactly what I needed. It took an hour or so to learn how to program it. With a little help from online videos I was using it like a pro in no time.
  • Works as intended By Paul on 5/21/2016

    Works as intended.
  • A must have By Bluesking on 4/14/2016

  • Kessil light controller By juschillin2 on 3/3/2016

    Wonderful addition to the light system. Never have to touch it! Well worth the cost. Did take me a while to understand and get the hang of it, but once there...it's a breeze.
  • Good Controller By Eric on 11/13/2015

    I would recommend purchasing this if you do not already have another controller that will work with the Kessil lights. It adds much more controllability (ramping color/intensity etc.) than just using the kbobs on the lights and an electrical timer. It is also easy to program and the acclimation mode is useful in helping to not stress out your livestock by changing light sources.
  • a must have By fishguy32903 on 11/12/2015

    easy hook up. nice mounting plate. programs fairly easy. a winner!!!!
  • Couldn't be better By LDH on 10/20/2015

    Exactly what I needed to make my Kessil shine ( sorry pun intended) super easy to use thanks to brs YouTube instructional vid. Literally took 3 mins to set up out of the box. Does exactly what I want it to! That's it..
  • Very Nice Controller By Brett on 10/7/2015

    Very easy to setup and program, especially with the video on Bulk Reef Supplies YouTube channel. has taken a few times to get the lighting and intensity correct to where algae is not growing and needing the glass cleaned every couple of days.
