All LEDs employed by AI are run lower and cooler than the manufacturers suggested maximums to get a longer and more efficient life from the LEDs.

The latest in technology is implemented in the design of all the parts of our products, using computational fluid dynamics software mated with extensive testing of real life prototypes we ensure the proper cooling for our LEDs from in house designed heat sinks. LEDs that are cooled properly are dramatically more efficient. Using electronic design automation software AI is able to produce electronics that not only are very efficient but also runs the LEDs properly.


Parametric optical design software is employed to design all our lenses, with this AI is has produced over 90% efficient lenses that insure the maximum amount of light is captured and dispersed evenly into your tank.

With these three main building blocks that we put into all our lights, efficient electronics, proper cooling, and amazing optics paired with proper color temperature of LEDs make for products that often times consume half the power of the competitors’ lights while still achieving similar or greater par values in your tank.
