Product Questions

Morning!! Hope everyone is safe.

I picked up these control and the light/arm (A360WE) second hand however I'm missing a few pieces. Is there a way I can order those through you guys? I need the magnetic back plate, power adapter, usb cable and the 3.5mm link cable. If it comes with mounting hardware I would like those too if possible.

Let me know!

what is the difference between this controller the a series spectral controller and the x. both appear compatible between the lights i am looking into. what am i missing?
Question by: jeff on Feb 5, 2020, 5:27 PM
Hey tehre,

The X controller can control the A series of lights and the X series. The A series controller can only control the A series and not the X.

Take care

So if you have your program set and it is running and you physically turn the knobs on the light what happens? Does the program cancel? Does it change temporary then go back to program?
Question by: Robert Damaro on Jun 13, 2019, 5:55 PM
Hey there-

Great question! When a program is set and the light is linked to the controller the knobs on the unit itself will not alter either intensity or color (you would have to disconnect it from the controller first).

Happy reefing! :)

Is this Wifi enabled? Can I control it from an app?
Question by: Lawrence on Dec 29, 2017, 1:54 PM
Thanks for reaching out to BRS!

Unfortunately, the A-Series controller does not have wi-fi capability. Have a great day!

Is it compatible with the Kessil H80??

I'd rather not buy both
Question by: Justin Johnston on Dec 26, 2017, 7:34 PM
Thanks for reaching out to BRS!

Our information from Kessil states that the H-series lights are only compatible with the H-series controllers, and the same with A-series lights and controllers.

Do the lights ramp up and ramp down between all settings that have been programmed? Or do they immediately jump from one setting to another setting when the time is reached for the next set point?
Question by: Jeanette Becker on Nov 18, 2017, 9:16 PM
The lights will ramp between different points throughout the day. It is a very smooth ramp for the intensity and the color spectrum.

Can this work on the H80 refugium light with my tuna blues?
Question by: Jeremy Cleveland on Nov 5, 2017, 5:48 AM

You would need the H-series Spectral Controller to control the H80. https://www.bulkreefsupply.com/h-series-spectral-controller-kessil.html

I'm getting A350 tuna blues, will this work for them?
Question by: Matt miller on Dec 13, 2016, 7:38 AM
Great question! This absolutely will work with A360 Tuna's! :-)
Answer by: Randy on Dec 13, 2016, 11:09 AM
Can these be used to control the Kessil A150's?
Question by: Andrew F. on Jul 24, 2016, 11:12 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.

What if i have more than 2 lights? Do i need multiple controllers?
Question by: Garrett Herrmann on May 8, 2015, 1:36 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.
