MATRIXX-II DIMTEC You may recognise the style as one of the most stunning designs to hit the aquatic market in recent years, and you would be right. With bodywork borrowed directly from our flagship FUTURA LED range, the MATRIXX-II utilises a full assortment of features borrowed from its bigger brother in a cost effective T5 format with computer designed reflector and high quality, fully dimmable ballasts made by Philips.
CONTROL WITH EASE Every MATRIXX-DIMTEC is controlled via Bluetooth from your home PC, smartphone* or tablet computer*. The individual light groups, consisting your choice of POWERCHROME T-5 tubes available in 5 different colors. All color mixes, dimming phases and lighting scenarios can be simulated using the standard software. Unique to the MATRIXX DIMTEC is the ability to adjust levels on a T-5 group basis, meaning that different light saturation levels or even whole lighting scenarios may be programmed for different areas front to back within the same aquarium dependent on the stock requirements.
With its wide beam overlapping output, the MATRIXX-II offers the most even light distribution for any T-5 lights available up to date on the market. Excellent depth penetration is also gained by overlapping the output from several tubes, building up intensity to gain depth punch without sacrificing even distribution.
STYLE WITH UNCOMPROMISING BUILD QUALITY Unlike many T5 units that have outer bodies constructed from simple thin pre-fabricated metal sheet held together by rivets. The MATRIXX-II uses an outer chassis constructed of heavy duty extruded and formed aluminium alloy, into which the components are hand assembled, before being topped off with an exquisite upper glass panel, whilst the underside gets the addition of a high quality acrylic splash screen as standard to ensure both the tubes and high efficiency reflector are protected from splashing or spray from air stones or surface located pumps.
ENJOY THE DETAILS The outer body of the MATRIXX is also coated in a tough anti-corrosion anodised silver finish, or painted in high gloss pure white.
Each element that makes up the outer chassis is painted or anodised pre-production to ensure that all faces (including joints and internal faces) are completely protected to limit salt or water ingression thereby reducing the risks of corrosion over extended use even in the most demanding situations.
Whereas many manufactures use cheaper ballasts and other materials to keep costs down, we understand that price is nothing without reliability. Each MATRIXX-II is assembled using only the finest quality internals, from lamp holders and wiring, right up to and including high quality ballasts – made by Philips - that are chosen for durability, stability and reliable output.
The lamps sit in front of a dedicated highly polished aluminium reflector that is 99.8% reflective and profiled via CAD software to offer the best possible transfer of light back to the aquarium in an evenly distributed manner.
PIN-POINT-PROGRAMMING Just one of the advanced features of the MATRIXX-DIMTEC is Point-Point programmability, whereby each T-5 group within the array can be independently programmed with various set points across the light period by the user. The total number of set-points available is a staggering 920, meaning the MATRIXX-DIMTEC stands head and shoulders above the rest when it comes to virtually unlimited programming capacity. This allows for both realistic daylight intensity adjustment over the full spectrum and light cycle, but also fine adjustment of the light field colour rendition across the lit period as well, allowing realistic replication of sunset and sunrise phases, on through the daytime high intensity period, and back into low intensity full night.the capacity to have a non-fixed focal point of intensity (sun shift)- a feature unique to the FUTURA.
KEEP-COOL The MATRIXX-II uses both passive and active cooling. Passive cooling occurs by direct heat transfer to the aluminium outer chassis and upper glass panel that acts as an inbuilt heat diffuser, whilst active cooling and air circulation is taken care of by way of two inbuilt fans. This ensures that the MATRIX-II runs at the perfect operating temperature to ensure good lamp lifespan and optimum output.
KEEPING THINGS STABLE
When designing any light fixture, temperature control is a crucial factor to both maintain the lifespan of the components and lamps, but also to maintain output at optimum levels. Too hot, and the lamps lifespan and output is reduced costing the user money, Too cold and the Lamp wont reach optimum operating temperature resulting in lowered performance.
