Sorry for late reply,
I just talked to the production department and the reason why the pricing have not been published is that you will need 2 different products to perform an upgrade or add Auxiliary modules:
1- Red Auxiliary Module
2- Upgrade kit

The modules are in stock and ready to ship.
The upgrade kit will consist of special Key for our screws, screws, push device and No bake thermal grease.
The modules are seated on the top of a heat-sink plate with piercing contacts extending out from the other side of the heat-sink.

These contacts pierce the onboard power distribution cable that run inside the Aluminum profile along the side of the lamp. Image
Once the contacts are inside the cable the PVC jacket will create a gas-tight connection.
The push device fits both the Primary module and the auxiliary module.Image

Push device is placed on the top of the PCB. Pressing against the push device the user will push the piecing contacts into the cable and make a connection. Image
This will distribute the force evenly along the whole surface of the PCB and will protect the PCB from getting damaged by the force applied to install it.
There will be no soldering, wiring, marrette…
All these features have been in the lamp design from the beginning however our engineers have been swamped with so much work on Cerebra that this simply lost priority! In actual fact we did have these onboard our fixture at Interzoo over a year ago!
We are releasing the Red modules now, you will not need to fill all he available slots for the Auxiliary modules with Red AUX modules, in my mind about 30% of the slots filled(or less) will be more than enough since these are strong Red LEDs.
So for example in a SR 1200 model you will have 7 spots for Aux modules and I believe 2 or 3 modules would be more than enough to even create a red sunset effect.
Good news is that after I beg for another 3 months we will also have AUX modules in Green, violet and possibly other colors!
As for pricing since the production needs to send the bill of material to marketing to determine a price this is always a very fast process, ooops I meant not so fast!
In other makes if you like to have other color LEDs you will have to remove LEDs and replace with new colors which in our mind will change the color out-put balance of the lamp.
Here you will have the color you already prefer composed by White, Blue and Royal Blue LEDs onboard the fixture and then you can further accent the out-put with other colors without having to sacrifice intensity. Simply because you are not losing white LEDs to add other colors.
Now having said all that, they forgot to order packaging for the modules and the upgrade kit and the NO-BAKE thermal grease must be filled in one-time use syringe so the user can easily apply it between the heat-sink and the Aluminum body of the lamp!
So basically simple case of the brilliant engineer working on design and forgetting to ask us to order syringes and packaging!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The modules will be ready to ship in 2 weeks and pricing should be released sometimes next week!
I hope this helps and once again sorry for delay.

Best regards

thanks for the update, i have a question though...will the software be updated to control the additional color pads available so can i ramp up the red and control it as i do the white/blue/royal blue?

There is no need to update the software, as I mentioned this feature was already implemented into the lamp from day one.
Once installed the controller on-board will detect the new hardware and red module control menu will appear same as the other colors onboard.

Great to see you posting here Vertex :thumbsup:

Have you considered other colours? a yellow or orange pad?

what would be nice is 2 colours to each pad so i could have 6 extra colours to fine tune on my 600mm fixture :roflmao:

I am more than impressed with my sr600, it is a nice light :clap:

Cheers

Jason,
Your wish is my command Sir!
I will soon start a thread getting everyone’s opinion on colors they would like to see.
Bicolor pads are also possible.

With the dual color pads are you looking at red and violet. I did some light spectrum readings as shown in my tank journal and these colors are missing in the spectrum. Would be good to have these in the unit

We haven't received the auxiliary pads they are due sometime this week, maybe you can post some pics of the reds when you get them installed I am not sure on the number of install kit required, will check and let you know.

Alex maybe you want to try the new illumilux for your quarantine tank?

Update on availability of red leds, our shipping company have had some issues with dispatch and the shipment is sitting with the forwarder in Germany now scheduled to leave on the 5 Sept with delivery 9 Sept which is a Friday so we most likely will not have the stock until early the following week.
