The brand new Kessil AP700 LED light has arrived.

NEW Kessil AP700
LED Aquarium Light

The Kessil AP700 is a one stop shop for any modern reefkeeper and combines all the features, functionality and light spread that most reefkeepers should ever need – and all in one neat unit.


WiFi Controllability


The AP700 is so much more than just two A360s, as it not only takes on a new slimline panel form, it does away with unsightly control cables as it is fully controllable by Wi-Fi. It combines all those popular blue Kessil spectrums with full colour control, so if you want to add more red light to your Kessil colour spectrum you can do while at the same time enjoying that shimmer and those popping coral colours.


Maximum Coverage -Awesome Colours


At 185 watts total power consumption the AP700 provides enough lighting punch for even the most demanding SPS corals while at the same time being able to light a whole 48x24” reef tank on its own! Lensing options mean that the beam can be focused or softened and diffused, so whether its T5, metal halide or both light spreads you want to simulate at the same time, you can do, due to Kessil’s unique hybrid optics.

Hybrid Optics


"Hybrid Optics" simulate the effect of a Metal Halide T5 Combo. Our specially designed lens and reflector combination provides a broader delivery of light and superior penetration. This virtually eliminates shading while minimizing hot spots.



Maximum Coverage


The new "Hybrid Optics" combine with the two latest generation of Dense Matrix LED arrays, giving up to 48" of coverage. The AP700 has been designed and tested to consistently provide the best spectrum and delivery for coral growth and coloration.


For a Mixed reef: Coverage is 48"x24" hanging 15"-18" above water surface.


For an SPS dominant: Coverage is 36"x24" hanging 5"-7" above water surface.



WiFi Controllability


The iPad app gives users access to advanced manual control and program customization, as well as offering the ability to sync groups of lights. App features include full color control, acclimation, lunar cycle, weather effects, and more.




The Kessil shimmer effect gives your tank a beautiful, natural, sunlit look comparable to the shimmer of a Metal Halide fixture. It's like replicating your own piece of the ocean.


Full Colour Spectrum


The new generation Dense Matrix LED brings aquarium lighting colours to a new level. Full Colour Spectrum is now available for the AP700. With the iPad app, users can choose a range of blue from Deep Ocean Blue to Sky Blue, and can even select other colours such as green, yellow, red and purple for a different aesthetic.


Colour Mixing


Different wavelengths within a single LED array are seamlessly blended, emitting a uniform colour with widespread coverage.


Kessil Logic


Independently adjustable colour channels enable users to tune a preferred colour within the spectral range while maintaining the best usable spectrum for coral growth and coloration. Kessil Logic™ maintains consistent output across the spectrum, Sky Blue to Deep Ocean Blue.




Patented Dense Matrix LED™ technology concentrates multiple LED chips into a single array, creating a powerful light source that offers better and deeper penetration without sacrificing coverage. The maximum penetration can be 24"-30" from the water surface for most reefs. The penetration is even greater by spacing units closer together or with the use of AP700 optical accessories.



No matter which spectral point is chosen with the tunable spectrum, Kessil's proprietary blend of precision UV light encourages coral coloration.



Compact and sleek design features quiet operation, innovative heat management, and efficient, long-lasting LED construction. This design also allows for more mounting/hanging options: Mounting Arms, Canopy Kit, and Hanging Kit.
