Arcadia T5 Twin Controller with Bulbs

SKU: PZBU1DEQ13 Category: Tags: , ,


The Ultraseal T5 Electronic range of fluorescent controllers are IP67 rated, meaning that the controller can be completely concealed within the hood of the aquarium. When using T5 high output lamps, it is essential that an electronically ballasted unit such as this is used – traditional magnetically ballasted units will not suffice.

Key Features:

  • Waterproof lamp leads and controller body for installation inside the aquarium hood
  • Long mains with integral power switch lead for easy installation
  • Independent lamp circuits (twin lamp units) – if one lamp fails the other will continue to run
  • Engineered to deliver Arcadia performance at an extremely competitive price point
  • All of our aquarium lighting controllers are supplied with our patented Ultra seal IP67 lamp leads to ensure a waterproof seal at each end of the lamp

Fitting Tips:

The Arcadia Aquatic Ultraseal lamp holders offer both keeper and animal total security against dangerous water ingress. To comply with the new waterproof lighting regulations we have designed and made this system to be IP67 or waterproof. This does however mean that the lamp holders must be tight. To enable the safe and easy fitting of lamps the following advice is given:Unscrew the lamp rings from the lamp holders.Use a very small amount of Vaseline (non-petroleum based) on the rubber seal on the inside of the sealing ring to moisturize the rubber seal. Wipe away and overspill from the lamp holder and lamp.Slide the lamp ring over the lamp and carefully line up the pins on the lamp with the two holes inside of the lamp holder and push gently. The lamp should seat into the lamp holder with a slight click. At Aquacadabra we advise you do not turn the lamp as the pins will sheer off.Slide the lamp ring back down towards the lamp holder and holding the lamp tight with one hand screw up the lamp ring until gently seated with the other.T5 lamp run hotter than T8 lamps and the rubber seal around the lamp sealing ring may stick to the lamp or degrade over time, these rings can be easily replaced with product code AB5R or ABT5LL. As product code AB5R will eventually be removed as the intention is to discontinue it going forward.
