The fixtures’ small form-factors provide ease of use as underwater, equipment needs to be weighted to be nearly neutrally buoyant when submerged.
Water filters out light, so the panchromatic LEDs emit a continuous spectrum of light color to supplement what reaches the depths.
They also boast low power usage and can be taken out of the water while still lit without danger of damage from high temperatures.
The SeaSuns are are available using both Litepanels 1×1 and MicroPro fixture designs.
SeaSun 1x1s are available in a Litepanels’ Standard (5600K or 3200K in flood or spot), Bi-Color (infinitely variable from 5600K to 3200K) and Bi-Focus (5600K with variable focus) models.
The smaller SeaSun MicroPro operates off of six AA batteries, and can provide light continuously for up to five hours with Energizer e2 Lithium Ion AA batteries.
The fixture housings are constructed of aluminum and plexiglass, and are rated watertight to a depth of 100 feet.
