One of our first beta testers Skyler was kind enough to send us an update on his progress. He uses a Coralux Storm Controller running up to 3 LDD drivers off of each channel. As you can see, the results speak for themselves. Well done Skyler.
I finished the lights. Let me tell you, this is exactly what I imagined “controller” wise. Let me give you a run down of what I have.
Meanwell Power supply 48v @ 9.4a
9 meanwell LDD-700h drivers
- 3 daylight
- 3 royal blue
- 3 blue/uv
1 meanwell LDD-350h
on all 3w bridgelux leds, except for the 1w moonlights.
Obviously, with the Storm I had to splice some channels together.
So the most I have is 3 Ldd’s running off each channel. Wiring of the Storm was very easy nothing unexpected, I did fry one of the LDD’s but that was my own doing lol. I can agreed with the frequency mapping of the clouds/lightning people mentioned in the reef central thread. 1 could be a lot less frequent. But over all Ben I think the Storm is spot on to the needs of even the advanced reef keepers. I spend around 10-20 hours a week on my tank, constantly tweaking and testing and I haven’t found anything I would change on the storm. EXCEPT, I would get the Storm X so I could really let tank shine! Pics of almost everything.
Alight, well you know how the get me. Thanks again
