    Ecoxotic has been busy rolling up plenty of next generation products in the last few months and today added to the portfolio of newness with the announcement of the new Ecoxotic Panorama Retrofit 2D featuring higher output LED chips, optical lenses and a dimmable LED driver. The flexibility of the Panorama Retrofit 2D and improvements to an already simple design, make this one of the easiest and robust ways to add LED lighting to an existing setup.

    Like its predecessor, the Panorama Retrofit 2D is designed to to drop into a hole cut into existing canopies or be hung by optional mounting hardware. The passive cooling includes a well-designed and large aluminum heatsink to pull heat away from the fixture and, if mounted through a hole, keeps heat from being trapped inside the canopy.

    The Panorama Retrofit 2D is adequate to light a 2 ft. 2 ft. section of aquarium and is a good combination of 10,000K white and 453nm blue LEDs. The addition of the optical lenses provide an incredible amount of light and give the perfect color rendition for marine, reef and freshwater aquariums. Use the light alone or add some Panorama Pro or Stunner LEDs to create your custom appearance.

    In order to use the dimmable LED driver, you must connect it to a 0-10V dimmer system for use (GHL Profilux, Digital Aquatics ReefKeeper and Neptune Apex & Apex Jr. systems).

    The new Ecoxotic Panorama Retrofit 2D LED fixture retails for $358.00 USD and is available at the Ecoxotic website or from your favorite Ecoxotic retailer. The Ecoxotic Panorama Retrofit 2 is also available for $10 less and does not include the dimmer driver.

    Why on earth would one want the diffuser grid on the unit like that. It would only lessen the output

    not really hey thnk it has to do with the light spread look at all the DIY's in USA all the optics are diffused and not clear. i also though that it did not make sense but i never bothered to ask anyone

    the plastic is specially designed and etched inside the cover to maximise stray lighting and compensate for the loss through the water proof cover.
    to the naked eye there isnt much diff.

    And if you put a par meter under it there is a massive difference. The optics improve the par enormously. Not quite sure why or how.

    Is there a specific minimum or maximum hight restriction when using LED's..? How close or far from the water surface..?
