Atlantik iCon vs Atlantik V4 why it is worth upgrading
Orphek has been over the years progressively introducing new benefits and fine tunning to your Atlantik and Atlantik Compact fixtures.
Orphek takes a leap into the future and presents the new Atlantik iCon Compact – Intelligent Connectivity, so let’s take a look NOW and THAN!
The Atlantik iCon is a total new experience of Orphek Atlantik series!
This time, more than ever, we are launching a new Atlantik LED Light with a number of significant improvements and valuable changes! You will get access to our new app; improved air flow and cooling system; faster connectivity like never seen before; an amazing dimming control of your light never offered in the market; the best spectrum ever developed by us, better color control, new modes… and much, much more!
We don’t know if you are aware but contrary to other brands, Orphek Solutions offer UPGRADE possibility. (read about Orphek Reef Aquarium LED Lighting thinks green!)
Orphek products are built to last
So, with no further due, let’s get to it!
Here is a list of what we have upgraded.
- All LEDs been changed.
- We have changed both LED chip and the encapsulation manufacturer.
- There are also some internal improvements in the internal lens with supporting UV radiation for all LEDs. (Even for the white ones). By the way, Orphek is the only company proving glass lens for its UV/violet LEDs. You already have the glass lens in the Atlantik V4!
2. LED PCB:
- The new LED PCB comes in black and with a new LEDs’ design.
- While the Atlantik V4 had 4 channels Atlantik iCon has 6 channels (now you get 2 more channels!)
3. Cooling system:
- We added a high quality surface treated alloy top, tapering from 6mm to 2mm at the corners.
- We have also added a brass sleeve over the screw post to conduct the heat to the top aluminium covering.
- Now all speed fans work as one and they change speed following the intensity of the light.
- Fans have a control system to stop under 30%. So the new Atlantik iCon is completely silent during the lunar cycle. In fact, there is a significant noise reduction in this new fixture.
4. Atlantik iCon control system:
- The new Atlantik iCon comes with an awesome new Orphek App.
- Although the Atlantik V4 comes already with IoT technology, the Atlantik iCon is developed with a friendly technology both easy and fun to use, and the new Orphek App. is compatible with both IOS and Android, with iCloud support and many other cool features that the V4 does not provide.
- In fact, the new Orphek App. is not just an app, it is also a new operating system!
- Now you will have Smart communications – WiFi/Bluetooth and hotspot sharing, so you can connect the light to the internet from your phone, without the a gateway/router. That means a higher level of security.
- While the Atlantik V4 has 0 to 100% progressive dimming control, the Atlantik iCon comes with advanced 1000% dimming control system – Orphek now offers in Atlantik iCon full progressive dimming capacity in all channels.
- By the way, we are the first and only company in the world offering 1000% dimming control system (0-100% and 0.1-1% for Moon Cycle)!
Being a company in continuous development, Orphek has taken its decade of research and testing to achieve an evolutionary spectrum that is based on the Atlantik V4 spectrum, but intelligently improved, offering now the new Atlantik iCon, with not only a new spectrum, but we have also reorganized the entire LED array, so you can control each color bandwidth separately, allowing you to have more control of the color appearance (check the new 6 channels chart above).
While the Atlantik V4 spectrum research resulted into bringing to you an amazing balance between the light corals need and the overall appearance you want to see in your tank. , the new Atlantik iCon comes with the fine-tuning that Orphek researched and developed over these last years.
Finally we developed each channel with a combination of LEDs colors and quantity based on the needs of corals; respecting their natural response to light wavelengths; and to provide the best color pop, health and growth spectrum, while giving your tank the natural look, mimicking nature at its fullest.
More new improvements…
PAR: Atlantik iCon is truly one of a kind and stands out from the rest with a Highest PAR value, it is certainly in a league of its own. The peak value is incredibly high, as it is close to 1000 PAR !!!
Reseting procedure: Now there is no need to open or disconnect the power supply. The new Atlantik iCon can be reset just by clicking the reset button 4 times.
Improved signal: The new Atlantik iCon can be connected at very long distance and even pass through walls. So the router can be further away in your home.
Atlantik iCon does not need a gateway.
Orphek Atlantik iCon is a Cloud based program, so even if you delete the Orphek Appall your setting are saved. Now it is also available both automatic update for the App and the light system.
Orphek new App. for the Atlantik iCon will continue to be updated and improved for better functionality.
