The Turtle was developed in response to the requirement for an efficient photoperiod light for tanks, ponds and raceways.|
This superior quality light source is an entirely self contained floating unit.   It houses a highly effective Metal Halide discharge lamp, together with all the associated control components.
In keeping with Aquabeam's high standards, the lamp starter is safely enclosed within the unit. This avoids the hazzard of transmitting high-voltage ignition pulses along underwater cables and connectors.
Above surface illumination
The Turtle's design makes use of the critical angle optical principal. This minimises the amount of light that escapes by using the water surface as a mirror.
Sub surface illumination
reduces light losses
The position of the discharge lamp relative to the water's surface ensures that a minimum of light passes though the surface to be lost.   This brings the added benefit of easy stock observation.
