Gold medal for EHEIM LEDcontrol



From October 7 to 8, 2017 the exhibition Animal
Expo - Animalis Show took place in Paris. The EHEIM LEDcontrol electronic
lighting control system was awarded the gold medal in the category of aquatic
innovations presented there.

The Animal Expo - Animalis Show is the largest pet show in France. In addition to
more than 10,000 animals, accessories for various areas are presented here as
part of the "Showcase for new products". A jury of specialist dealers and
journalists will award prizes to the best new products.

In the category aquatic products, the lighting control system for aquariums
EHEIM LEDcontrol was awarded the gold medal. The prize was presented
solemnly at the Parc Floral de Paris on October 7th.

The new EHEIM LEDcontrol is an electronic control system for the simulation of
brightness curve and lighting moods in the room. The light in the aquarium can
thus be ideally adapted to the needs of animals and plants.

The control system is specially designed for the EHEIM powerLED+ luminaires.
In the "fresh plants" and "marine hybrid" models, it is also possible to determine
the light colours (e. g. dawn, sunset, etc.).

Thanks to pre-installed plug connections, the controller is quickly mounted.
Programming is carried out via PC using the supplied software. An individual
lighting scenario can be entered or one of the pre-installed lighting programs can
be used.
