Mitras LX 7000 Series
For lush, healthy growth and vibrant colors in your marine water aquarium.
The Mitras® LX 7000 series is an ultra-bright LED full-spectrum light with an enormous power density (versions 7006/7206 with up to 195 W) that ensures natural brilliant colors (CRI> 95), uniform illumination, and radiant brightness in your aquarium. Equipped with the innovative GHL Power Balancing Technology®, the maximum power of LEDs can be divided into different color channels as needed.
With its incomparably high photosynthetic efficiency, the Mitras® LX 7000 series is unique in the market. As with the Mitras® LX 6000 pendant lights, this is achieved by carefully assembled high-power LEDs.
Developed and manufactured in Germany, the light is characterized by the latest in LED technology and is incredibly efficient and durable. Compared to conventional lighting technology, the light can save approx. 50% energy costs per year.
Sleek, Modernized Design – The new Mitras LX7
The elegant Mitras® LX7 is designed to be used as pendant lights over open aquariums. The installation above the basin can easily be done with the stylish Mitras Flex Mount System or GHL Hanging Kit.
* Mitras LX7 may not be used in a closed aquarium below a cover. The clearance between aquarium and Mitras LX 7 must beat least 20 cm (7.9?)
Mitras LX7 is One of a Kind – Here´s Why
Outstanding Light Performance
Our first-class product design, technical know-how, and extremely careful selection and assembly of the LEDs ensure outstanding illumination performance.
Mitras LX 7 provides the ideal light spectra for marine and freshwater aquariums. The full-spectrum light uniquely mixes light to provide plants and corals with high photosynthetic efficiency which promote the lush growth of plants and corals.
Graphic above shows typical PAR measurement for LX 7206:
- Area: 96 x 72 cm (37.8? x 28.3?)
- Distance: 30 cm (12?)
Instead of using LED lenses that cause light loss, we use special, metal-coated high-performance reflectors made from the same materials used for space technology to maximize light efficiency, increase light spread, optimally blend LED colors, and minimize light loss. Our reflector design mimics the reflective performance of Metal Halide reflectors and reflect 99% of light. This allows for maximum light output and significantly increased light penetration, even in depth.
Multi-Channel Illumination Control
With the integrated lighting control, you can conveniently adjust the light output as well as the light spectrum in a wide range exactly as needed and save it as an illumination project of your own.
Very fine Dimming by GHL Perfect Dimming Technology® with over 4000 dimming levels and a dimming ratio of 3000: 1 per light channel (color).
All 9 LED–channels are separately dimmable in up to 4000 steps. In addition to the variable light spectrum, a variety of functions can also be accomplished:
- Sunrise and sunset (“East to West”-Simulation) over a single or several lights
- Cloud simulation (also “gliding” over several lamps)
- Seasonal Lighting >Learn More
- Thunderstorm simulation
- Calendrical lunar-cycle simulation
- Rainy days
The professional and free PC operating software GHL Control Center (GCC) allows you to conveniently operate and configure your Mitras® LX7 with the PC.
With GCC, you can easily create your desired illumination program. Light color and illumination intensity can be programmed to vary over the course of the day.
You can either just take over one of the existing lighting projects for your light, or create your own project from scratch.
A diverse selection of connectivity options are at your fingertips. Operate the LX 7 directly from the device’s control panel, via PC, or cloud (myGHL). The operation of the light (also as master/slave) is simple and user-friendly.
The graphical display gives you a quick overview of the current operating conditions of the light.
The control panel of the light and its back-lit capacitive buttons offer quick and easy operation. Tasks such as changing settings or starting special effects such as thunderstorm simulation can be accomplished from the graphic display.
Thanks to the integrated control and the built-in radio module, each light can be used in different ways:
- As Standalone
- As Master: controls one or several other Mitras lights
- As Slave: is controlled by a master (other Mitras or ProfiLux)
To control Mitras through a ProfiLux controller, the ProfiLux Wireless Interface (PLM PWC Expansioncard) is required (not included with Mitras LX).
Connect the Mitras LX via the cloud (myGHL), your smartphone, or your computer – built-in WiFi and USB offers you all the connection options you need.
For communication betweeen multiple Mitras LX (e.g. in Master/Slave-mode), the Mitras LX includes a second RF module which works independently from WiFi. Potential home network problems will not affect the Mitras LX, neither will the internal Mitras LX traffic stress the network.
Mitras LX7 Features
Optimal Light Spectrum to Suit Specific Applications
For optimal lighting results, we offer two different types with different LED combinations to choose from:
- Mitras LX 7000 (Freshwater)
- Mitras LX 7200 (Marine Water)
Average color temperature will depend on LX 7 type; each type is fine tuned for specific applications.
- For Marine Water
- Diagram shows Relative Spectral Radiation Power, all LEDs running at 100%
- 1000 K – 24000 K adjustment range of color temperature
- 9200 K center color temperature
- 9 separately dimmable colors, LEDs within each cluster:
2 x Cree XP-E2 blue, 2 x Cree XT-E Cool White, 2 x Cree XT-E Royal Blue, 1 x Osram Oslon SSL true green, 1 x Osram Oslon SSL Sky White, 1 x Osram Oslon SSL Blue-White, 1 x Osram Oslon SSL Hyper red, 1 x Hyper Violet 425 nm, 1 x Ultra Violet 385 nm
- Mitras LX 7206 has 6 clusters (Total of 72 LEDs)
Future-proof: Interchangeable LED Clusters
All Mitras lights are designed with upgradeability in mind. Each type of Mitras can be equipped with any matching LED-cluster type (mixing LX 6 and LX 7 clusters are not possible).
This type of technology gives you the flexibility to swap LED clusters and benefit from the latest technological developments.
For example, an LX 7000 can be converted to an LX 7200 with a simple cluster swap.
All Mitras LX models are equipped with the necessary hardware to support different LED-cluster-types; a firmware update may be required. With GHL Control Center, new cluster configurations can be easily activated.
No Disturbing “Disco Effect”
Unlike many other LED fixtures, Mitras LX lamps do not create an unsightly and disturbing “disco effect”. This effect is often noted as seeing obvious color spots on the substrate which tend to move side-to-side during water surface agitation. Our metal coated high performance LED reflector mimics the reflective performance of parabolic Metal Halide reflectors by perfectly blending all LED channels. In a single Mitras LX cluster, all 12 LEDs are housed on an area of just 25 mm x 25 mm – this narrow arrangement and special reflector design helps achieve perfect light mixing.
