Mitras LX7 is One of a Kind – Here´s Why

Outstanding Light Performance

PAR Diagram Mitras LX7

Our first-class product design, technical know-how, and extremely careful selection and assembly of the LEDs ensure outstanding illumination performance.

Mitras LX 7 provides the ideal light spectra for marine and freshwater aquariums. Our full-spectrum luminaire uniquely mixes light to provide plants and corals with high photosynthetic efficiency which promote the lush growth of plants and corals.

Graphic above shows typical PAR measurement for LX 7206:

  • Area: 96 x 72 cm (37.8″ x 28.3″)
  • Distance: 30 cm (12″)
  • Interchangeable LED clusters with 72* high-power LEDs (min. 150 lumens / watt white LEDs) for optimum color mixing and uniform illumination.
  • Marine version with hyper violet (HV) and UV – LEDs
  • LED life > 80,000 hours (LM80)
  • Specially selected LEDs from Cree® and OSRAM®  of the latest generation (e.g. XPG3, XPE2, Oslon)
  • CRI >95
  • Our LEDs are operated at the highest efficiency and intentionally not operated at the maximum possible current. Operating at the max possible current significantly reduces the LED life and energy efficiency. Mitras LX 7 incorporates a larger number of LEDs at reduced power and maximum efficiency.
  • You can choose between 2 operation modes: High Output Mode (maximum light output) and High Efficiency Mode (good light output with high efficiency)

*For models with 6 LED clusters.

Instead of using LED lenses that cause light loss, we use special, metal-coated high-performance reflectors made from the same materials used for space technology to maximize light efficiency, increase light spread, optimally blend LED colors, and minimize light loss. Our reflector design mimics the reflective performance of Metal Halide reflectors and reflect 99% of light. This allows for maximum light output and significantly increased light penetration, even in depth.

Evenly distributed light is as important as high light output. Through complex computer simulations and practical tests, we have determined the best possible placement of the LEDs and shape of the reflectors. In order to ensure optimum illumination, the LEDs were arranged in 2 x 3 evenly distributed clusters. The LEDs in each cluster were then placed as closely as possible.
Placing the clusters as close to the edge of the light as possible, provided convincing results:

  • Ideal mixture of the individual LED colors, the light in the aquarium has no disturbing color spots
  • Uniform illumination over a wide area
  • Efficient heat dissipation through the heatsink

Specially coated high performance reflectors additionally ensure a homogenous and natural light impression.

  • The reflection factor of 99 % carries the light also into the depths, without unnecessary divergence losses of the light to the sides.
  • The light is also reflected lightly diffuse from the reflectors. Due to that a homogeneous natural lighting effect is achieved, which is very important especially if different colores LEDs are mixed.

The special protective cover:

  • Is made of highly translucent plastic
  • Has a light transmittance of at least 92% over the entire visible color spectrum

The innovative cooling system (active, passive, and controlled by a microprocessor) ensures reliable protection against overheating for maximum luminosity of LEDs and a particularly long service life (> 80,000 hours).

  • Active cooling is accomplished by extremely quiet and powerful temperature-controlled fans. The speed of the fans are temperature-dependent and are automatically adjusted.
  • Passive cooling is accomplished through a large solid aluminum heat sink with seawater resistant anodized aluminum coating in accordance with DIN 81249-1.
  • Microprocessor-controlled automatic brightness reduction prevents the luminaire from overheating: If temperature continues to increase despite maximum cooling, i.e. due to increasing ambient temperatures, the brightness is reduced slowly and continuously until luminaire temperature goes back to normal.
    This system allows the electronics and the LEDs to always be operated under optimal conditions.

Multi-Channel Illumination Control

With the integrated lighting control, you can conveniently adjust the light output as well as the light spectrum in a wide range exactly as needed and save it as an illumination project of your own.

Very fine Dimming by GHL Perfect Dimming Technology® with over 4000 dimming levels and a dimming ratio of 3000: 1 per light channel (color).

All 9 LEDchannels are separately dimmable in up to 4000 steps. In addition to the variable light spectrum, a variety of functions can also be accomplished:

  • Sunrise and sunset (“East to West”-Simulation) over a single or several luminaires
  • Cloud simulation (also “gliding” over several lamps)
  • Seasonal Lighting >Learn More
  • Thunderstorm simulation
  • Calendrical lunar-cycle simulation
  • Rainy days

The professional and free PC operating software GHL Control Center (GCC) allows you to conveniently operate and configure your Mitras® LX7 with the PC.

With GCC, you can easily create your desired illumination program. Light color and illumination intensity can be programmed to vary over the course of the day.

You can either just take over one of the existing lighting projects for your luminaire, or create your own project from scratch.

User-Friendly Operation

Mitras LX 7 wifi_usb_cloud_

A diverse selection of connectivity options are at your fingertips. Operate the LX 7 directly from the device’s control panel, via PC, or cloud (myGHL). The operation of the luminaire (also as master/slave) is simple and user-friendly.

The graphical display gives you a quick overview of the current operating conditions of the luminaire.

The control panel of the luminaire and its back-lit capacitive buttons offer quick and easy operation. Tasks such as changing settings or starting special effects such as thunderstorm simulation can be accomplished from the graphic display.

Thanks to the integrated control and the built-in radio module, each luminaire can be used in different ways:

  • As Standalone
  • As Master: controls one or several other Mitras luminaires
  • As Slave: is controlled by a master (other Mitras or ProfiLux)
    To control Mitras through a ProfiLux controller, the ProfiLux Wireless Interface (PLM PWC Expansioncard) is required (not included with Mitras LX).

Connect the Mitras LX via the cloud (myGHL), your smartphone, or your computer – built-in WiFi and USB offers you all the connection options you need.

For communication betweeen multiple Mitras LX (e.g. in Master/Slave-mode), the Mitras LX includes a second RF module which works independently from WiFi. Potential home network problems will not affect the Mitras LX, neither will the internal Mitras LX traffic stress the network.

Future-proof: Interchangeable LED Clusters

All Mitras Luminaires are designed with upgradeability in mind. Each type of Mitras can be equipped with any matching LED-cluster type (mixing LX 6 and LX 7 clusters are not possible).
This type of technology gives you the flexibility to swap LED clusters and benefit from the latest technological developments.

For example, an LX 7000 can be converted to an LX 7200 with a simple cluster swap.

All Mitras LX models are equipped with the necessary hardware to support different LED-cluster-types; a firmware update may be required. With GHL Control Center, new cluster configurations can be easily activated.

No Disturbing “Disco Effect”

Unlike many other LED fixtures, Mitras LX lamps do not create an unsightly and disturbing “disco effect”. This effect is often noted as seeing obvious color spots on the substrate which tend to move side-to-side during water surface agitation. Our metal coated high performance LED reflector mimics the reflective performance of parabolic Metal Halide reflectors by perfectly blending all LED channels. In a single Mitras LX cluster, all 12 LEDs are housed on an area of just 25 mm x 25 mm – this narrow arrangement and special reflector design helps achieve perfect light mixing.
