Each model is made from a lightweight architectural grade aluminum alloy making it much easier to install if you compare it to other bulky & heavy full length fixtures. The fixture housing uses a passive cooling design so there is no need for fans which can can become noisy or simply fail to work over time.

The fixture has an onboard controller with LED display but the fixtures can more easily be controlled from any iOS or Android device with the use of the for-mentioned ICVS module. Each model includes near-UV diodes (super actinic – 410/420nm) that is required for Chlorophyll-A photosynthesis.

Other features Include:

  • Mimic Nature from Dawn to Dusk
  • 4 individually programmable channels
  • Includes Tank-top Mounting Legs
  • Utilizes Cree XLamp, XT-E & XP-E LED chips
  • Neptune Systems Apex Controller IOTA Ready**

If your aquarium is larger than 72″ x 26″ then Maxspect has addressed that issue connectivity to additional Razor X fixtures. When multiple fixtures are connected together, the aquarist can put the fixtures into master/slave mode whereby all settings are programed into one fixture.
