Product information

Light as energy source
Most corals in aquariums need sufficient light. They often feed from the metabolic products of the algae, which live in their tissue. Corals which don’t feed photosynthetically prefer dark places and need to be fed with phyto and zooplankton (JBL KorallFluid, JBL PlanktonPur). To ensure ideal growth it is important to know and to reproduce the light requirements of the individual corals in the marine tank.

Easy to install
Insert the fluorescent T5 tube socket into the fixture and turn until the tube locks into place.

Modelled on nature
With its light colour and its spectral distribution of the light the 15000 K tube meets the needs of the corals and invertebrates to promote their growth.

The full daylight spectrum
JBL full-spectrum tubes create light conditions modelled on nature and reproduce the natural, balanced lighting. Tested by the IFM-Geomar Leibnitz-Institut für Meereswissenschaften and rated as very good and “comparable to natural sunlight”. With energy efficiency class B the tube is particularly energy-efficient.

FAQ
Which electronic ballasts should be used for JBL Solar ultra T5 ?

The technology for fluorescent bulbs is standardised so that the manufacturers of the lamps and the ballasts both determine the ignition and controller of the tubes.

For this reason the tubes can be operated with any electronic ballast.

JBL Solar tubes: My two new tubes don't "glow". Is that due to a production error?

We can exclude the possibility of a production error. If a light doesn't turn on, that is an unfortunate exception.
If you have a light bar with conventional electronic ballasts, I would recommend changing the starters once to see if they are causing the problem. Does the defective tube glow when you change the tubes on the light bar ? And the other one doesn't ? Then there is a defect in the light bar.

Can the JBL Solar ultra T5 fluorescent bulbs be operated with conventional ballasts?

No, this is not possible.

What do the hours of service life indicated for the fluorescent tubes mean ?

Our tubes are not tri-band tubes, but instead, are modern full-spectrum tubes.

If there is a loss of luminance, the operating conditions must definitely be checked. T8 tubes have the longest service life with the least losses at 25 °C ambient temperature, whereas the T5 tubes have the lowest at 35 °C ambient temperature. Most of the closed covers have ambient temperatures that are higher than 25 °C. Generalising data of 8,000 or 10,000 hours of service life should generally be treated with caution, as this data applies to optimised operating conditions.

Can the JBL Solar Ultra T 5 fluorescent tubes be operated with dimmable electronic ballasts ?

Yes, the JBL Solar Ultra T 5 fluorescent tubes can be operated with dimmable electronic ballasts (ECGs)? However, please note that this decreases the useful life of the fluorescent tubes.

Light measurements in nature and in the aquarium

On the JBL expeditions the lux values were measured in various parts of the world, both over and under water, by means of lux meters. As a comparison the JBL research department determined the underwater values in aquariums.
