Can I operate several LED SOLAR units with one remote control?
You can operate several IR receivers with one remote control. In doing so, the IR receiver needs to be mounted near or at the aquarium cabinet so that it can be reached unimpeded by the IR signals of the remote control. All remote controls work with the same wavelength. This enables you to operate all the receivers with just one remote control unit.
Which LED length fits my aquarium?
You will find a tabular overview on the packaging of every LED. This will tell you which LED SOLAR fits your aquarium. There are two application scenarios for this.
1. You replace an existing T5/T8 tube to install the LED as a retrofit. In this case please refer to the relevant column. Most aquarium owners prefer the shorter model because of the small distances left and right of the tube socket in the aquarium cover. You can either select according to the length of the tube (in mm) or according to the wattage.
2. The second type of installation is as a top assembly or hanging installation. Here the maximum aquarium width is decisive. Please refer to the relevant column. For this type of installation, always choose the larger of the two options for optimal illumination.
Why are there several T5 adapters in the package?
While you may have thought that all 24 W T5 tubes have the same length, there are in fact many different lengths with the same wattage on the market.That's why we've included two different adapters to facilitate a safe and easy installation. In case of an unsuccessful installation attempt, please try an alternative adapter from the box.
How much lumen does my LED SOLAR NATURE have?
On the back of your packaging and in the instructions for use you will find a table that shows the lumen specification (at 4000 K) per product type. Unlike other LED types, the LED SOLAR NATUR mixes the light of cold white and warm white LED to produce the three possible Kelvin numbers. Maximum flexibility for your aquarium type. None of the LEDs runs at the maximum power of 100 %, thus ensuring a long lifetime. This makes it possible to generate lumen values that are almost always identical. The deviation between the 3 colour spaces is minimal.
What does “retrofit“ mean?
Retrofit refers to the option of converting conventional T5/T8 tubes to the JBL LED SOLAR system. You can, without having to remove the aquarium cover or make any structural changes, simply "plug" the new LED into the old tube sockets for operation. Many cat owners are unable to operate an "open" aquarium and therefore need an aquarium cover. The aquarium surroundings also sometimes prevent an open installation. In such cases the retrofit installation is ideal.
Can I combine two LED SOLAR EFFECT units with one LED SOLAR NATUR?
Unfortunately this is not possible. The LED SOLAR EFFECT is connected to the driver (power supply) of the LED SOLAR NATUR via the included cable switch. Thus, all the slots are already occupied. You’ll need another driver for this. You can connect one NATURE and one EFFECT to one driver. Two LED SOLAR EFFECT units on one driver are not possible due to the connectors and the maximum power consumption of the power supply.
