ReeFi Uno announcement Oct 9th

Sneak preview of preproduction ReeFi Uno. Only thing that's not the same as final production version is that it uses a 3D printed prototype shell while the production shell is still in the plastic injection mould tooling phase.

 

This little Uno with form factor of only 7.25" x 5.68" x 1.73" pack a whopping 180 watts! Using latest 2 layers copper core PCB fab technology with direct contact from LED diode's thermal pads to copper core for superior heat transfer. That along 4 phase exchange vapor chambers are what make is possible to stay so tiny with such power. Just like the ReeFi Duo Extreme, ReeFi Uno will be backed with 3 years warranty.

 

More exciting specs with pricing and availability will be released Oct 9th. Pre-ordering with discounts will also be available on Oct 9th.

I've just release the ReeFi Uno specs and started taking pre-order with 20% discount.

Following the success of the ReeFi® Duo Extreme, ReeFi® Uno continues ReeFi’s mission to make premium LED fixtures that will be affordable. One of the hard lesson learned from the Extreme is the importance of design for manufacturing. It’s easy to make a few prototype but scaling up for mass production creates more complications. Using the latest PCB fabrication technology, ReeFi® Uno incorporates 2 layers copper substrate PCB with direct thermal path technology which allows the LED diodes, IC drivers, dual-core microcontroller and WiFi to all be on the same PCB. This eliminates many steps in the manufacturing process and eliminates many assembly concerns while still maintaining the best thermal pathway to export heat. Other innovations includes gas exchange vapor chambers to greatly improve transfer heat from the LEDs to the heatsink fins. This enables the use of higher heat density LEDs such as the 4in1 larger LED diodes, thus doubling the number of LED diodes in the same 6×6 LED puck arrays. ReeFi® Uno also incorporates ReeFlectors®, which have become one of the favorite innovations to prevent blinding side glares.

 

Features and Specs at a Glance

  • Complete blue to UV spectrum coverage for best coral coloration and growth.
  • Broad wide spectrum PC Amber, Lime, with Cool and Warm White LEDs bring out the vivid colors of fishes and corals.
  • ReeFlectors® – Anti-glare, more even light distribution, color blend, and natural shimmer in compact form factor with individual ReeFlector™ for each LED diode.
  • 9 Color Spectrums with 9 individual channels and highest precision dimming of 0.097% increments.
  • Auto time sync and Auto moon phase lighting capable on any combinations of channels. Design your own moon color.
  • Easy to setup and program with built-in WiFi web server, fully customizable program schedule settings that can be saved to file for backup and sharing.
  • Advance cooling to keep LED at optimal performance with temperature sensor and PID fan control.
  • 72 LED diodes in 6×6 array, using 12 larger 4in1 LEDs.
  • 180W max power, 83.3% of the power level of ReeFi® Duo Extreme.

Compare to the Competition

  • Most affordable premium Reef LED fixture, under $2 per watt.
  • Most LED dimming steps at 0.097% increments.
  • Most LED color diodes with individual color channel of control.
  • Incorporates high ratio of Blue to UV spectrum to target chlorophyll A and B in corals.

Yes, there will be tank mount options.  I'm still working on converting 3D printable model to plastic injection.

However, basic hanging wire kit is included.

Sweet!! Any idea how much?

I have a 3ft tank and would love to see Par results to see how this compares to my Radion XR30 non-pro gen 3.
How much PAR are you getting from XR30 gen3?

With ReeFi, you'll need to worry about too much PAR. ;-) How deep is your tank? Get/rent a PAR meter so not to PAR shock your corals.

Unless your tank is 3ft cube, you probably want to get 2 Unos, so you don't get too much light spill out of the front and back.

Just put in a order for 6 lights.  Any idea on when they will start shipping?   I’ve been debating on lights for a long time.  These look amazing and you can tell Daniel put a lot of time into the design and layout.  Top that off with a warranty that no one can beat and the choice was easy.

I'm expecting to start shipping them out in early Dec or possibly sooner.  I'm expecting to get enclosure test samples from the plastic injection molding next week.  All other components are pretty much done.

I'm also expecting to get my tank mount samples in next week.  I'll have cool tank mount details to share then.

Thank you for your support!

Do you have a program schedule file that would work well for a mixed reef in a JBJ 30 gallon AIO cube?  That would make the set up super easy.

Also, I do not see documentation/instructions on your website.  Does the light come with it?

Give me your tank dimensions and what average PAR you want at the bottom and I can probably create a settings file for you.  Then you can fine tune it to your liking.
