- Ecotech Radion XR30w G4 Pro 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.
Why go PRO?
- Peaks higher around 420nm
- 12 additional LEDs proving a fuller spectrum
- 40 additional watts of power
- Adds Violet and Warm White channels
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.
Fantastic light !!!! By Chris on 9/21/2018Chris would recommend this product to a friendThe Radion XR30w G4 Pro is a fantastic lighting option that will produce large colorful corals, and when coupled with the reef link it opens up a ton of customizable options.
Great lights By Tom on 9/13/2018Tom would recommend this product to a friendThey were easy to set up and they work great
Should of bought them sooner By Slacker on 8/22/2018Slacker would recommend this product to a friendCould not be happier. It arrived fast and in perfect shape. Put them up right away and love them.
Say What?! By Chris on 6/29/2018Chris would recommend this product to a friendI upgraded from a cheep LED and I don’t regret paying for 2 of these. The ease of controlling this with a reef link and the immediate changes in corals are big change from my Current LEDs. If you really care about the health of your fish tank, DONT skimp on lights. Especially since your corals get their food from photosynthesis.
Flawless control with Apex By jmfugett on 6/9/2018jmfugett would recommend this product to a friendI have used these for over three years with the Apex controller and couldn't be happier. I had some trouble with the pairing, but once that worked out I have had no problems. These really are the best LED lights out there. FWIW if you are struggling with wether or not its worth the money to have this level of control for the premium price, the answer is yes. Splurge here. You get what you pay for when it comes to lighting.
Incredibly easy setup By John on 4/13/2018John would recommend this product to a friendI am still pretty new so I can't really judge these on their longterm effects on coral health. But, I can say that set up was incredibly easy,I'm still amazed that they automatically paired to each other without needing to connect to a pc or any modules. My only problem is the fans running nonstop, I'm sure they have a reason, but because of that i give them 8 out of 9 thumbs up
Good and Bad By Joseph on 3/20/2018Joseph would recommend this product to a friendThe build quality of these fixtures is probably the best on the market. You just know your receiving quality. The light output is intense, I would venture to say its more than plenty even for dominated SPS tanks. Now for the bad. The reeflink is a half-baked joke. When you're paying the "Ferrari" price in lighting, I expect a fully capable and fully developed product. The software is far from that. Though it does function. After a few choice words and few cold beers to calm the nerves, you finally learn the bugs in the system. Having the ability to create a dusk dawn effect with the spectrum and intensity of your choice IS the greatest feature of LEDs. However, I am still torn on the quality of light. I have a high energy reef tank with lots of flow and the disco effect is really distracting and hard on the eyes. Not to mention looks ridiculous. If the optics of these fixtures is supposed to be the latest and greatest, I would hate to see anything less. This is almost enough at times to want to sell and go back to MH's. Don't let anyone kid you. The disco effect is STILL an issue. A few hopefull updates to the software and these would be great lights in the world of LED. I am still convinced that MH's give the best aesthetically pleasing light. LED's are still worlds away from this. BUT the efficiency and customization really offset the lack of aesthetics. It really comes down to what you want more.
love these lights By kriss on 2/16/2018kriss would recommend this product to a friendlove the color, love the shimmer, easy to control and beyond quiet
Amazing light By Israel on 12/27/2017Israel would recommend this product to a friendI bought the gen 4 pro 10 months ago (2/17). I run the programming with an WXM module for my apex, extremely easy to get up and running. The growth and color of my sps under this light is crazy 1" frag has grown a 1 1/2" in 3 months compared to a lot less growth under the gen 3 on the other end of the tank.
If you thinking of buying this light just do it, it's so worth it.
The best lights on the market today By oral seymour on 12/13/2017oral seymour would recommend this product to a friendThese Radion G4 Pros are the best lights on the market today. I've been running these for a year and I have no complaints. The new lenses give great spread and the software is probably the easiest to operate out of all the other manufacturers. I'm still pissed I had to pay $100 for a reeflink after paying $800 a piece for 2 lights but now that I have other ecotech equipment it makes the investment worth it.
over hipe and not reliable By carl guennet on 11/20/2017carl guennet wouldn't recommend this product to a friendthose are expensive and dont worth what they ask 2 out of 3 broke within 3 month my last ecotech product. Previous maxspect was better that those
Terrible disco effect By Reefer on 11/14/2017Reefer wouldn't recommend this product to a friendBRS sold me (2) XR15 G4's i had them for less then 24 hours later I want my mobey back. Apparently there open box policy states all sales are final. Last time I purchase anything from BRS.
Are these capable of being controlled through Alexa?
How many XR30s for a 4 foot tank? Red Sea Reefer 350? and should they be mounted lengthwise front to back?
Hi guys, general advice. If I wanted to run some of these on a Red Sea Reefer 250. Would 1 unit do it? Or should I be looking at 2??
I've only been in the hobby for a little over a year w/my 6', 125 gal tank. Currently I'm using T5s, but the unit I have is not ideal for this tank. The coverage is horrible and my corals are not particularly happy with them. They exist but some of them don't seem to be thriving. I blame it on the lighting as I'm pretty particular about water quality. I keep hearing of light controllers and wondered if that was necessary for this unit? Sorry for the rookie question...
Do the leds ever burn out in these? If they do, do you have to replace the whole thing?
How many xr30 pro's would you recommend for a red sea reefer xxl 750 for a mixed reef?
Does the Neptune wxm now support all channels?

Right now I have softies and LPS in my 65 gallon. Eventually I want to get a bubble tip anemone. Would one light be enough wattage for a BTA? What light or lights would you guys recommend to have a BTA?
Ok im looking for the led fixtures that can be programmed with lightening storms as i was shown at my lfs. does this system allow for this. if not do you sell a system that allows this thanks
Hi, Guys, I have an 80 gal. Mixed reef tank, 36"L x 24"W x 20"D. I'm looking to up grade my lights. I'm currently running a 36" SunBrite F-series. I'm interested in the new Radion Pro. Would it be better to go with 2 - xr15 pros or 1- xr30w pro to get the best light coverage. I guess I should mention that my tank has a center cross brace on it which is about 1 1/2" wide plus clear mesh screen tops. Thanks in advance for any input.
Have a great day!
40" long 20" wide would be mounting front to back how many would I need? sps reef
I'm struggling to come to a lighting decisions for my 30x30 cube. For a mixed tank, would 1 30 Pro be enough or would 2 15's from Radion be a better solution? I see the recommended and maximum spread and with them coming in about about the same price point I cant decide. Thanks for your help.
Hope this helps!
I am planning a 96" long by 48" wide by 28" depth mixed reef tank. How many of these would I need?
For a tank this size I would use four of these fixtures. I would, however, depend on the set-up consider using seven xr15s instead which would be cheaper in price and give a much better even spread of par.
