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 Color Spectrum

The new generation Dense Matrix LED brings aquarium lighting colors to a new level. Full Color 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 colors such as green, yellow, red and purple for a different aesthetic.

Color Mixing

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

Kessil Logic

Independently adjustable color channels enable users to tune a preferred color 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.
