The AP700 employs high quality, hybrid optics which helps give great spread and coverage while not losing its penetrating power, and giving the closest look to metal halide lights from almost any other LED unit. Kessil designs and produces their own LED Dense Matrix Array’s which gives them full control over quality and the spectrum of LEDs used in their products.
The Kessil AP700 has full WiFi capability which now unlocks the ability to program storms, cloud cover, day cycle, acclimation modes, and the lunar cycle all from an iOS* or Android** device, without any need for an additional stand-alone controller. Just download the app and connect your preferred device to the light for complete control!

The AP700 is not compatible with the APEX for control ability. However you can still use the energy bar to turn it on and off. Also, there is not a controller for this light, just the app from Kessil.
Depth and width would not be a problem, but length would. At 18" above the tank it has an effective footprint of 48" by 24". Have a great day!
We have a 48" 125 mixed reef that we are lighting with an AP700. I would like to supplement this light to accomodate a bit heavier SPS stock. My Idea is to add a Kessil 360 on one side and slide the AP700 over, or to add a Kessil 160 on both sides of the AP700. Would either of these be a good option or am I barking up the wrong tree? If they are a good option, which would you suggest?
As always, thank you for your help.
Also, I only have Android devices to control the fixtures. When will the app for android devices be released?
Have a great day!
I have a 24" L x 18" W × 18" H tank. Would this light be excessive? I only keep lps and soft corals at the moment.
if you have access to the app then it is currently available and will work! No need for an iPad if you have the app. Within in the app you can set one to the correct settings and copy the settings saved to the second light. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions.
The Beta has been released and we hope to hear an update in the next few months. No exact date as of yet.
Overall we would recommend the Ap700 due to its controllable features and color settings. This will have a spread of 48 x 24 and certainly will work well for softies with SPS up top. The App has been updated and seems to have much easier support. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
With their 48" x 24" spread two fixtures would be perfect for a tank of your size! This will offer a wide spread of light for complete coverage. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Square base of 50 cms X 59 cms (19.76" X 19.76") Height 40 cms (15.81")
Would this lamp be too much light?
Tha tank will be rimless, I do not want to drill holes on the ceiling. Do Keissel have the fixture to mount it on the edge of the tank?
This light would be a little excessive however could be run at a lower intensity. The Kessil A360 would be a smaller better option for you! These can be mounted with the Kessil Mount to the back of the tank. The A360 can attach as well with the Kessil Gooseneck. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The Videos were a representation of 100% intensity at the blue spectrum. Overall with the full length and depth of your tank for full spread you will want to start around 50-60% intensity and slowly increase until the corals are able to adapt. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The AP700 does not currently have control via the Apex. It currently only has the built in wifi control via an iPad app for control. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The single AP700 has a spread of 48" x 24". This is a full spread and if a higher amount of PAR is required you may consider 2 fixtures placed closer to the water level. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
