After some time away from the aquarium industry, IceCap is officially back in the game, bringing with them their most popular product, the IceCap 660 ballast. The IC-660s are developed with the same technology as the classic 660 ballast but with some updated improvements like utilizing higher quality, non-lead “RoHS Compliant” integrated components for an environmentally safe product which will also allow the ballast to run cooler reducing the ballasts failure rate.
IceCap 660 Ballasts are the coolest ballasts available using 40% less electricity and burning 40% brighter. Their unique circuitry prevents premature lamp burn out and fading associated with VHO lamps. You can run VHO, HO, and STD lamps in any combination. In summary, the IC-660 is a versatile and powerful ballast. Single ballast can operate any combination up to 4 lamps- with a total not exceeding 440 Watts. The IC-660 is fully dimmable (T12 VHO bulbs only), operates silently, has many available features, is fully repairable and has a 3 year conditional warranty. A reliable high frequency solution for your Industrial, UV, Germicidal, Aquarium and Horticultural applications.
Although this ballast is making its return, it should be noted that the product-line never quite went away. IceCap's former VP Chris Conti went to CoralVue after the company shut it’s doors, and when he left, he took the IceCap 660 and several other products with him. It was at that point that the 660 was rebranded under the CoralVue name. When you have a solid brand that produces superior products, and you attempt to rebrand it, often times brand loyalty is lost in the fray. Kudos to CoralVue for fighting all of the red tape and bringing the trusted IceCap name back.
