In-situ Marine Optics

spectraTUNE

World's most accurate sunlight and lunar simulator for conservation

Mimic solar and lunar light spectra at any latitude, complete with sunrise/sunset events and programmable day length.

Applications: Nocturnal houses, Zoos, Conservation Organisations, Husbandry.

Using an array of 16 LEDs driven by an onboard microcontroller, each light module can mimic daylight and moonlight more accurately than any existing light technology. SolTUNE has a fully configurable light spectrum in the wavelength range 380nm - 700nm, with precise brightness control and dimming to below 1 lux. Units operate autonomously to a programmed daily, monthly, seasonal or annual cycle and they can operate stand-alone or in groups up to any size.
