- LSM Lunar Simulator Module - Neptune Systems
Add the Lunar Simulator Module Apex Unit to create a true lunar cycle to your reef aquarium. Many fish and corals will spawn following the lunar cycle and will help mimic their natural habitat while adding just enough light to the tank to let you see what is going on when the lights go out.
- Module and LED Strings sold separately
- LED Strings available in 2, 3, 4 or 5 LEDs per string
- High intensity LEDs with a wide angle lenses (100+ degrees) to provide the best possible coverage
Lunar Simulator Module Features:
- Plug and Play - Automatically recognized when installed into the system
- Comlete lunar simulation
- Two AquaBus connectors for flexible expansion to other modules via AquaBus
- Upgradeable firmware
- Compatible with all Apex systems
- Includes with 3 Ft. AquaBus cable
Works perfectly By Ed on 1/11/2020Ed would recommend this product to a friendI have an AI Prime HD light and configured the ‘moonlight’ setting. It worked but didn’t change, as an average lunar cycle does.
So, recently I purchased the Apex lunar expansion module, and I couldn't be happier.
As part of the module, it has the ability to add an additional temperature probe, which I did. I leveraged the secondary temp probe for My ATO reservoir. Now I ensure that my RODI water is within the expected temp range before adding it to the tank.
Lunar Simulation Module By Abtin on 5/5/2017Abtin would recommend this product to a friendReally cool addition to my reef tank. Be aware that this module simulates the lunar cycle and phases. That means the lights will vary in intensity and timing throughout the month. This can be observed on the original apex dashboard. You can program to your liking if you do not want Simulation. I purchased the four led string for my 6 foot tank, covers everything very well. It's pretty much plug and play. Just install and apex does all the programming. Make sure your software is up to date.
Good night light By Lawrence on 11/28/2016Lawrence would recommend this product to a friendneeds a longer lead or better yet it needs a ex extension
works great By Donald on 9/2/2016Donald would recommend this product to a friendworks great
Nice leds little expensive. By RJ on 7/29/2016RJ wouldn't recommend this product to a friendNice leds, its true 3 leds do a 6 foot tank just great. Literally plug and play. Cord is a little short had to buy an extension. It is disappointing there is no hanging hardware. So be prepared to have some double sided tape or screws... Etc.
Overall. I'd probably buy again at this point. Perfect for viewing tank at night
It's cool.... By Patrick on 7/15/2015Patrick would recommend this product to a friendI am not trying to get corals to breed or lay eggs. I just wanted something to light up the tank at night so I can see the critters that come out then. It is tied to the lunar calendar and it follows the cycles of the moon so some nights it is super bright others it is pretty dim. It is pretty darn cool even though it is pretty unnecessary. I am really glad I got it so I can see the corals at night. They are very bright I have 3 over a 100 gallon tank 4 feet by 2 feet. Anymore and I think it would be too much and not give that cool moon glow.
great By andrewnemeth3 on 6/4/2015andrewnemeth3 would recommend this product to a friendAwesome lights great look to them
Easy By Andrewnemeth3 on 6/4/2015Andrewnemeth3 would recommend this product to a friendCant get any easier that this product. Full plug and play and with the lighting wizard there is no programming.
Plug and Play By Thomas on 4/6/2015Thomas would recommend this product to a friendi recently reprogrammed my Apex controller to simulate the actual timing of sunrise/sunset via the "If SUN" command. In doing so, I thought, well if I replicate the du 's cycle, why not the moon as well!
Fast forward to the arrival of my LSM module and two-string (LED) moonlights.
You might be asking yourself, "is it difficult to install/program?" The answer is: Nope! The product is as described in my subject line i.e. Plug & Play. The Apex unit does all the heavy lifting for you! My moonlights were up and running in no time flat thanks to the awesome design of Neptune's Apex controller.
Great looking moon lights By Ray on 1/30/2015Ray would recommend this product to a friendEasy to setup. Plug in, Apex will add the program for you. The color on the lights is great. The only problem is that I would like more wire between the bulbs. It works great in a hood, but if you are using any kind of gooseneck mount, you will end up with a wire draped from one gooseneck to the other. Great system other than that.
easy By ward on 12/23/2014ward would recommend this product to a friendPretty cool. Just plug it in and the system recognizes it. I use the default program they have on it and have found no need to change it.
Great lights By Mark on 11/21/2014Mark would recommend this product to a friendI use the three light one over my 180 and it is strong enough that it lights up the tank very well.
How many LED strings can I plug to one LSM? for example, can I plug a "4-sting LED" AND a "5-string LED" to one LSM?
The LSM module will be able to control a single string of LED’s. You can get a string with up to 5 LEDs if you wish, and usually one LED per square foot makes the perfect moonlighting.
