The Kessil® AP9X LED is a 185 Watt panel platform for saltwater aquariums with touch and WiFi control as well as with digital K-Link control. Thanks to the variably combinable spectrum and an outstanding coverage area, it ensures excellent coral growth and coloring. It is also characterized by innovative heat management with exhaust air devices on the sides. The newly designed heat sink and an efficient vortex fan reduce the accumulation of dust and dirt, which extends the service life and increases efficiency.
All luminaires in the Kessil® X series can be connected via WiFi dongle or, in the case of the AP9X luminaire, directly to the APEX app from Neptune. The new APEX IoTA interface enables perfect integration into the Neptune system and convenient control of all functions of the Kessil® lights.

In addition to Kessil’s signature Tuna Blue spectrum, the AP9 features the full range of individually adjustable color channels red, green and purple (Violet + Indigo) that can be accessed via the Kessil app. Kessil Logic™ ensures that cosmetic color settings do not interfere with the core spectrum, allowing users to dial in a preferred color without disturbing coral health. The AP9X also includes 395nm LED chips, which emit True UVA light for maximum coral coloration.
Multiple-fixture setups can be controlled via individual WiFi connections or daisy-chained together to access up to 32 lights via one master fixture. Apart from WiFi, the AP9X can be controlled with the built-in manual controls or the Spectral Controller X - simple control with just one device:
- In manual mode you can instantly tune spectrum and intensity for on demand light customization.
- Quick Set creates unique dawn and dusk effects by altering light intensity and color throughout eight different time points.
- With the acclimatization mode, the introduction of new lights to a tank or new corals to an existing setup is very easy. The acclimation timeline can be customized to suit specific needs.
- The Lunar Cycle Mode simulates all phases of the natural moonlight cycle.
With the Kessil app (iOS / Android) all colors of the spectrum can be set thanks to independently adjustable LED channels.
Kessil® Logic™: The specially designed lens and reflector combination maintains a broad delivery of light and superior penetration and, thus provides persistent output across the entire adjustable spectrum and thereby ensures consistent coral growth and excellent coloration. Shading is eliminated, hot spots are minimized.
The 185 Watt panel platform features touch control to easily adjust intensity and color, and to select the moonlight mode. Built-in WiFi provides even greater control and ease of customization.
WiFi controllability: The Kessil® app (iOS / Android) gives access to advanced manual control and program customization, as well as offering the ability to sync groups of lights. The app features include full color wheel control, acclimation, lunar cycle, weather effects, and more.
Kessil®’s patented Dense Matrix LED technology concentrates multiple LED chips into a single array, creating a powerful and penetrating light source with wide penetration and large area coverage.
For a mixed reef: Coverage is 48" x 24" / 120 x 60 cm hanging 15"-18" / 38 - 45 cm above water surface. For an SPS dominant: Coverage is 36" x 24" / 90 x 60 cm hanging 5"-7" / 13 - 18 cm above water surface.
Kessil®’s patented Dense Matrix LED technology concentrates multiple LED chips into a single array, creating a powerful and penetrating light source with wide coverage and eliminating shading. The maximum penetration can reach up to 30" (75 cm) beyond the water's surface. Penetration can be further enhanced by positioning multiple units in close proximity to each other.
Different wavelengths are seamlessly blended within a single LED array, emitting uniform color across the coverage range.
Beautiful, unrivaled shimmer replicates the look of natural sunlight reflecting from the water.
