BLV presents LED coral in Vancouver


This year, BLV is a Gold Sponsor at the IAC (International Aquarium Congress), which will be held in Vancouver, Canada from September 25 to 30, 2016.

Following the successful product presentations at the EUAC congresses in Genoa in 2014 and Tenerife in 2015, the company will present another product innovation in Vancouver:

NEPTURION LED coral 120 W is a unique LED fixture developed especially for corals. Its spectrum is adapted to the natural habitat, but features the same colour temperature as the familiar NEPTURION MH series (70 W - 1000 W). As the NEPTURION LED coral is dimmable, the lamp can be easily adjusted to different scenarios.

Additional advantages include clearly minimised heat dissipation and the lower energy consumption of LED fixtures in general, and crucially, the extremely low maintenance costs in comparison with conventional MH lamps, resulting in considerable savings.

The NEPTURION LED coral was designed by biologists and developers to ensure the sustained, healthy growth of corals on the one hand while also allowing the full extent of nature’s unique variety of colours to be experienced.

Dr. Thomas Schwend, PhD in Biotechnology and researcher at BLV, will also give a presentation at the congress on “Designing an LED spectrum for coral reef tanks” and address the specific biological and technological challenges.

BLV is going to present its LED product range at booth 412.
