Update on my OR3 delivery. I dont know about your guys' shipments but mine is held up at port. DHL updated me today. My ICONS came in at the 3rd day or 4th day mark after shipment. The or3 for me just got the bad luck.

Icons are doing great. PAR is amazing. I'll try and get some readings posted on my peninsula.

The review of the new Orphek iCon went live this afternoon in the Article section. Many thanks to Peace River for getting this posted.

Installed my unit a few days ago which replaced a single Radion G4 Pro XR30. I've created a colour profile to my taste but would appreciate some input on the channel percentages and the PAR results. I know 500 is high but my Radion was pushing 700 at the same spot in order to get sufficient PAR to the edges of the tank which is predominantly SPS.

What is the PAR at the edges of the tank?

Please excuse the crude attempt at a PAR test and tank... I believe the Seneye meter is known to be far off at the edges but pretty accurate in the middle.
With the exception of the 135 PAR value, your PPFD looks pretty good!

Still chugging along here.

I took a look at your build thread, did you ever try the Helius spectrum? I can't really find any videos showing the spectrum.

It’s pretty much all channels the same intensity that peak then drop, for my setup it wouldn’t be enough par without dragging the peak out, but I do ramp up all channels the same intensity for a while, far as I can tell that the main point of it, using the full spectrum of the fixture.

Thanks! Looking to put 5 Icons over my 300, I really do not want a super blue spectrum

Yeah it’s not super blue running at channels at 100, and if you wanted it wouldn’t be a big deal to drop the blue channel a few percent. I think the “key” to the spectrum is the infrared channel which certainly isn’t blue!

I love this look. Very much like the Radium bulb overdriven by an HQI ballast. A 14K look with all channel even. If you want the Uber blue just drop channel 1 and 2 and your there
