JBJ Gives Us a Sneak Peak at Their New Pacifica LED Fixture

JBJ USA is back at it in the LED department, and they’ve given us a sneak peak at their latest creation, the Pacifica LED fixture. According to JBJ reps, this Pacifica falls outside of the Unibody family and was designed specifically to be packaged with the JBJ 30L rimless nano aquarium.. The goal for this pairing obviously being a way to give aquarists a plug-n-play package right out of the box. And as most of us know, JBJ has been quite successful in this realm as they’ve been moving all-in-one nano aquariums for years, and with this light and tank combo, we can get some serious LED power in a sleek new nano package.

Getting back to the light, the Pacifica uses a total of 96watts spread across 32 LEDs. Each LED has it’s own individual reflector and the fixture sports a 50/50 mix of 12000K and 20000K diodes. In addition to the spread of diodes, the fixture will also come with a set of built-in moonlights, bringing the total power consumption to about 104watts. A controller is also planned for the Pacifica as an add-on to give more functionality and control to aquarists, but an official release date for that accessory is still undetermined.

The Pacifica LED fixture has a planned release sometime in mid-January, though they light has been trickling into the retailers over the last week with less than 50 fixtures in total being shipped out. A full press release should also be released in the very near future, clearing up any questions that anyone should have.

    From JBJ update:

    “PACIFICA Update; to improve the night time viewing we’ve decided to alter the array from 4×1 watt 456nm moonlight LED’s to 4×3 watt. The moonlights do not have optics but are distributed evenly throughout the unit (check out the pics) below. This will bring the total operating power of the Unit to 108 watts if the moonlights are kept on continuously.”

    So instead of 96watts, it’s 108watts due to the moonlights if they’re on continuously.

    This looks almost identical to the LED light produced by Innovative Marine. I got one of these when I got my Nuvo 38 but returned it. Had the following problems. No way to control the light intensity: ON or OFF. The metal ballast shown here got NUCLEAR hot (possibly defective). The neck that supports the LED was rigid, and not flexible. I had been waiting for this, but now that I see it in greater detail, I guess I’ll have to go find something else.
