Grand Solar series

Aqua Design Amano has faced many aquatic plants by making numerous numbers of aquatic plants. In this process, Grand Solar I is one of the terminus ad quem of our lighting equipment. Its development tips after all existed in the Mother Nature. In the actual water of the freshwater river, strong sunlight only penetrates into water during two hours before and after noon time, and the light is reflected on the water surface for the rest of the day time. From these observations, we came up the idea to use metal halide lamp for the strong lighting, and softer lighting with fluorescent lamp, in order to realize the natural sunlight.

In this development process, we examined the material carefully, and produced all the materials within Japan. The design of Grand Solar I is simple, yet it equipped with slits for releasing the high temperature from metal halide lamp, and radiator fin. We also adapted highest quality level electronic ballast for Grand Solar I. The ballast is the core of the metal halide lamps, and in a sense it is the most important part. From this point, we can say brand new electronic ballast of Grand Solar 250 is the groundbreaking development.
