- Ecotech Radion XR15w G4 Pro Marine LED Light Fixture - EcoTech Marine
Why does BRS recommend this?
Ecotech has refined their line of Radion LED units over the years to become one of the best LED units on the market today. Now with Micro-fin cooling technology and HEI Optics increasing the color blending capabilities while also increasing the overall spread. With unmatched control through the ReefLink controller and EcoSmart Live programming, a LED unit can’t get much easier than the G4 series of Radion LED Lights.
- More Color
- More Cooling
- More Coverage
- More Control
Revolutionary HEI Optics (Hemispherical Edge Illumination) are now incorporated in all G4 Radion LED lights. HEI helps deliver better uniformity, spread, and overall color mixing allowing the Radions to come very close simulating Halide/T5 combos without any added heat or energy usage. The lens geometry of the HEI Optics offers a significant improvement over standard optics and even TIR lenses spreading the light over a greater area, allowing your tank to have a more even spread of light without any major hot spots.
The completely redefined heatsink of the G4 series of Radions now has Micro-Fin cooling creating more surface area allowing for a quicker heat transfer and dispersion allowing for more passive cooling, and less need for active cooling. Along with the heatsink's cooling fins, a computer driven, silent, IP55 cooling fan allows for active cooling over the Micro-Fins letting your light shine brighter and last longer!
The web based interface lets you control all of your Ecotech Marine products through the cloud. Through your smartphone, tablet, or computer you can control the G4 family of Radion lights anywhere you have internet access. The ReefLink Controller creates a fully inclusive device management system, with the use of the Vortech propeller pumps, Vectra return pumps, and Radion lighting, create an authentic ecosystem that you can control right from your fingertips.

Ecotech offers multiple types of mounting solutions for the G4 family of Radion LED lights. From full tank track systems letting you use multiple G4 Radion lights, to single light RMS mounting arms and hanging kits.
Radion Hanging Kit - Mount a single Radion light quickly and easily. Radion Hanging kits have quick lock fasteners that let you adjust the height making it a great choice for frag systems, or acclimation systems.
RMS Mounting Arm - Mount your single Radion through a robust tank mounting system. The RMS Arm is by far the quickest and least obtrusive option that doesn't require drilling any holes in your walls or ceilings.
RMS Track System - The 3 piece system lets you mount multiple Radion lights in a single track that lets you slide them back and forth to create the best coverage for your tank. The track system is perfect for larger tanks letting you use either a hanging kit to suspend the track system or the RMS Arm Kit for a tank mounting option.
Note: Reeflink Controller required for use with EcoSmart Live. Also controllable through the Neptune Apex WXM Module.
DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT By TWA on 3/21/2019TWA wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI bought 3 radion 15 fw, reeflink, and the mounts. I have had two radions crash (evidently fans stopped working), and the reeflink crash, so that I have to return 3 of the 4 items I spent almost $1,500 on. The reeflink crashed first. Technical support confirmed it was a product problem and that they would replace it. However, what they do is 1) take a credit card and 2) send you a new device (1st the reeflink) along with something to return the defective product. If you don't return it within 30 days, they then charge your credit card (or they do so if the detect water damage). HOWEVER, their policy is to only replace ONE unit at a time. Hence, I cannot send my defective lights in (which went out after the reeflink return process began). So, until they receive the reeflink, I am stuck with 2 lights not working on my 100 gal planted aquarium for possibly two weeks. I expect all my plants will die. ALSO, the "Eco-Smart Live" systems by which you hook up via USB does not recognize a plugged in device. I went to every fish chat room and found that this has been a chronic problem for years.
Software is terrible By Rafa on 1/9/2019Rafa would recommend this product to a friendThe light is
Love the light paired with the ReefLink By Gary (segalplayer) on 11/23/2018Gary (segalplayer) would recommend this product to a friendI have had the Xr-15 above my nuvo ten for about a year now (gen 4) with my reeflink and I love them both. The XR-15 has not once turned on it can to cool down and my corals from LPS & Softies to anemones (Rock) and have had a small 3-4 inch clam on my tank for about 6 months now and it loves the light. Clams are very finicky with lights. I’ve been redoing for about ten years and had used a marineland LED( sucked) ($450), Kessil a80 ($110,(
this was a great light but not strong enough for clams and barley for SPS. And the. Last year on BF I upgraded to a ration and havnt looked back. I got the reef link with it and setting it up was super easy, power on and connect to your laptop and you get to choose whatever you want you light to use. I use SPS AB+ and everything loves it. The reeflink does disconnect from time to time but after you program it once you don’t really need it unless you are trying to control from the app. I use an mp10 with the reeflink also and it’s been great bcs I can go below the lowest available setting with the reeflink since I have a small tank. Highly recommend, you won’t regret it. I am running mine for a 9 hrs on SPS AB+ at 22%, I am using the diffuser on my light along with the RMS. 10/10 recommend.
Corals love it By David on 7/28/2018David would recommend this product to a friendI would have given it 5 stars if the software had better instructions. Running 2 XR15's G4 Pro's on my 75 gallon mixed reef. The connection manager would not connect until I disabled my anti-virus software. Once I figured that out setting up using the USB and Coral Labs AB+ settings was pretty easy. It took me a few days of playing with it until I got the program set the way I wanted it.
Software is garbage..... By Trevor P on 4/22/2018Trevor P wouldn't recommend this product to a friendIt's like owning a Ferrari with a 2 cylinder. Love the light, but the software is garbage. Every time I try to update anything It's a week long process. ALWAYS says off-line. Uninstall, reinstall, cord after cord, and doesn't matter what light I use. Wish for the money they would just work. If I set and left them never changing any settings again, would be great. STAY AWAY...
Expected Better By Brandon on 3/29/2018Brandon wouldn't recommend this product to a friendEcotech is the "Apple" brand of reef aquariums, sleek, stylish, and powerful. But none of that matters if the lights are garbage. Good luck trying to get these to pair with your reef link. I have daily fights with my Vortechs' as well. I had a two year old G3 have a critical malfunction and Ecotechs' Customer Service was useless, "Just buy a new light" was basically their recommendation. I am sorry, but if you spend $400 on a LED fixture, I expect the LED fixture to last. Which is the main reason I went with LEDs. I understand other people have better luck, not me I guess. Looking into alternatives.
Added the Xr 15 to the middle of my tank By richard on 2/26/2018richard would recommend this product to a friendI have two g 4 pros in my tank but wanted just one cluster for the middle over my euro brace love this light just as much as my g 4 pros :) only down side brs was out of stock so I had to order from a different vender which I hate to do :(
Coral Lab makes a world of sense By RicksReefs on 1/17/2018RicksReefs would recommend this product to a friendI nuked my tank with g3s but the coral lab project and g4 platform gives me knowledge as well as performance power. The information provided in the coral lab project empowers you to have an amazing reef.
Just great By Jerry on 11/1/2017Jerry would recommend this product to a friendI am new to reef lighting but so far it is an amazing and I have no regrets. Easy to set up with reeflink and its all been a great experience.
Awesome Functionality By WebCitz on 9/10/2017WebCitz would recommend this product to a friendWe have this over our frag tank in the office. It has great options once you start going through all the color profiles and setting up the automation. The lunar cycle is really cool. Not sure yet on how to get the thunderstorms to happen once in a while, but either way it is an awesome light. Easily covers the IM Fusion 20 gallon tank we have it over.
a lot of light By airwarf on 7/17/2017airwarf would recommend this product to a friendSuper simple and sleek looking with the echotech mount on my 60g rimless cube. The ability to adjust spectrum, intensity, and many other effects on this lights daily program is amazing. It's honestly what everyone wants in a light.
It's SUPER nice to be able to control this EchoTech product without a Reeflink unlike other EchoTech products.
Works great By Musical Reef on 5/8/2017Musical Reef would recommend this product to a friendI'm new to reefing, so I don't have much to compare this to, but as a new reefer, I found the lights easy to use and program and my corals are growing well. Honestly, what else could i ask for? They have some fun (lightning and disco) but useless features that are great for showing off to your friends :) The programming is nice and versatile, but a little buggy at first. Once you play around with it, you get to understand where their web interface has issues and ways to work around it. It's honestly not a big deal, but as a programmer I want to go in there and fix it! I did have an issue in the beginning where the application wasn't recognizing one of the units but a phone call to support and they fix it within minutes. Their service is great. I know some people get upset at the fact that they have to call service to begin with, but it looks like in all the reviews service handles their issue well. I also love the fact that they have templates that come with the program. I remember feeling lost when I first started and then saw the templates and sighed a big relief! I wish they would add more templates to their vortechs next. Two small complaints, first the price and the price of the mounts. I feel a little ripped off that their mounts are so much money especially after spending so much on the lights themselves. Second complaint is that the fans kick on more than I expected. Nothing bad, but I was hoping that at 50% usage they would never kick in. But being new to this hobby, maybe my expectations are not realistic.
Hi, does the Radion XR15w G4 Pro LED Light Fixture come with a goose neck or a mounting fixture?
The mounting options for the Radion fixtures are sold separately. Currently they have the RMS tank mounts, light tracks, or hanging kit options available.
Have a great day!
I currently have XR15w G3 Pros on the RMS mounting arms. Will the new G4 fit on the same mounts?
Does this light have a built in controller for the settings?
Does it have a ramp mode for time scheduling?
This light can easily be programmed using a computer and a USB cable, it does not have on board programming. You can also use the Reeflink to have a wireless connection to program the light cycle, including sunup/sundown.
I have a tank 48 in L x 13 in w x 24 in H would two of these XR15 work? I have softies but mainly LPS, I do want to get into SPS
Hi, are the HEI Optics that come standard with this fixture the wide angle option?
Are the hanging kit also comparible with the xr15w?
