New from GHL
The next generation of the GHL Mitras Lightbar has arrived. Our original design proved to be an effective way to provide aquariums with powerful, energy efficient illumination. Better yet, it was and still is one of the brightest LED lights on the market. We applied these traits and added new characteristics to make an even more powerful product. We present you, the GHL Mitras Lightbar 2.


Mitras Lightbar 2 - Features

Updated LEDs
Specially selected high-power LEDs from Cree® (e.g. XPG3, XPE2, XTE), OSRAM® (Oslon SSL) and the newest generation of SemiLEDs® (150 lumens/watt white LEDs) for optimal color mixing and uniform illumination.

Efficient Cooling System
Passive cooling through a single solid aluminum heatsink that runs through the length of the Lightbar 2. Heatsink features seawater resistant anodized aluminum coating in accordance with DIN 81249-1.

Built-in Temperature Protection
Microprocessor controlled automatic brightness reduction protects the Lightbar 2 from overheating. If the housing heats up beyond optimal conditions, LB2 will automatically dim to protect the LEDs and hardware, prolonging LED life.

Uniform Light Distribution
The Mitras LB2 features a translucent protective plate made of XT UV Transmitted® which guarantees optimum light yield and uniformity. This special acrylic is also used for solariums and has a very high transmission for a wide light spectrum.

Equipped with GHL Power Balancing Technology®
PBT allows the optimal use of existing power resources: The power that is saved in reduced color channels can be assigned to other color channels. Safe operation and long life of all LED channels are ensured by a complex micro controller that regulates temperatures, currents and other parameters. More information on GHL Power Balancing Technology can be found here.

Equipped with GHL Perfect Dimming Techology®
PDT allows for super smooth dimming throughout all LED channels. With over 4000 dimming levels and a dimming ratio of 3000:1 per channel (light color), you can accomplish true-to-life simulations. As each color channel changes, PDT makes it possible to create a seamless transition as lights dim or ramp up.

Mitras Lightbar 2 is waterproof according to IP 67 standards. Lightbar 2 is totally protected from dust and against the effect of immersion between 5.9" and 39.3".

With most other lighting fixtures, if a powered fixture is accidentally dropped into the tank, your tank inhabitants are at risk, you're at risk, and the fixture is unlikely to work again. If a Lightbar 2 is accidentally dropped into your aquarium, no problem. Simply take it out of the water, clean it up, and plug it back in!

Various Lengths and Options
Mitras Lightbar 2 is offered in 13 different lengths, making it easy to find the ideal lightbar length for your tank. Several Mitras LB 2 can be connected via a splitter to one power supply unit – this way you have less power supply units and less cables in your cabinet.

Available with 4 different LED-combinations (Daylight, Ocean Blue, Actinic, Deep Actinic).

ProfiLux Controller Compatible
Realistic lighting scenarios such as sunrise, sunset, moonlight, cloud, seasonal lighting, and thunderstorm simulations are made possible with GHL Perfect Dimming Technology®. With over 4000 dimming levels and a dimming ratio of 3000:1 per channel (light color), you can accomplish true-to-life simulations.

I've got the Lightbar 150, had around 6 months - great light.

My only concern is that I wanted to add 2 more to tank once funds allow but I see there is a newer model now?!

Does this mean the newer model will give a different light output.

And whats also concerning me is that GHL have ditched the original lightbar for the Lightbar 2, what was wrong with the 1st one? (which i've spent money on within the last year)

Many thanks

The original Lightbar was on the market for more than 3 years, at some point GHL was going to have to bring out a new version which offered new features. The LB2 has updated LEDs, but are still in the same configuration as the LB1. That means it will still put out the same spectrum.

As you can see in the original post, it also has a new design for better heat dissipation and PBT.

If you can mount this unit right beside the LB1, I don't see why you wouldn't be able to adjust the LED channels to match the LB1 color.
