Product Description

The ION-8000 Fiber Optic Illminator is most commonly used to light fiber-optic swimming pool lighting. The feature which makes the ION-8000 so unique is that it uses an LED bulb unlike Metal Halide or Halogen bulbs used in almost all other illuminators. The ION-8000 is a direct replacement for popular illuminators like the Fiberstars 6000, 6004, 6008, 2004 & 2008 as well as the Supervision SV150T, SV150T6 & SV25 series.

The benfits of LED include much longer lamp life, brighter light output and lower operational costs. The ION-8000 can handle up 1,000 strands of fiber where it's competitoin has a maximum strand capacity of 450 strands. Finally the ION-8000 is a very compact unit meaning that it is about half the size of the Fiberstars & SuperVision Illuminators.

I live in Boston. Can I leave the ION-8000 unit outside over winter without a cover? Is there a preferred direction for mounting that would increase longevity in the inclement weather? I plan on putting the power supply in a UL box however.
 Reply

A  Answered on 5/5/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Dan. This Illuminator outdoor rating is IP67 and operating temperature is 14°F to 176°F. Which means that it's protected from dust and capable of withstanding water immersion between 15 cm and 1 meter for 30 minutes and can withstand temperatures of  14°F to 176°F. I wuld recommend that you bring it in during the winter in Boston.

Hi, John. The Illuminator and the power supply is rated for outdoor use. However, it's recommended that the power supply is placed in an UL Nema Box Enclosure.

Hi Guys. I would like to purchase this unit, replacing my old Fiberstar.........that has lasted 15 years I tried working it out on the Instructions, but in simple english, can this unit be Programmed to Colour Change every 15 / 30 seconds .4 also my fiber at the moment, (42) is pinned to the Outside Concrete Wall, if i Upgrade to 84 fibers, will it need a cunduit or support on the wall? can it also run around my hot tub at a right angle. Alan
 Reply

A  Answered on 4/19/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Alan. This unit does have a slow color changing and a party mode, however, the timing cannot be altered. IF you want to upgrade to an 84 strand cable, you will first have to make sure your track can is large enough. It can be run at a right angle.

I have a supervision eclipse 2 illuminator, are you familiar with this product? The unit is beyond repair but when it worked I could remotely use it through my Pentair easy touch controller, what do you recommend replacing this OLD unit with and will it work with my PENTAIR control system? Also I need the new unit to be water proof since it will be mounted outside. Please give me your feedback. Thanks

A  Answered on 11/13/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Danny. You can use this Fiber Optic 9-Color Illuminator W/ LED Bulb as a replacement. It is waterproof and will be able to be controlled by your Pentair controller.

?     Asked on 7/27/2017 by Howard

Does this unit have a cooling fan and if so is it loud? It seems if you use a 24vdc power supply without the interface you interrupt power to toggle through colors. Is there a way to just have the colors cycle?
 Reply

A  Answered on 7/27/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Howard. This unit does not have a fan but uses the SynJet flow system which is a fanless cooling system. You can set the illuminator's memory to either the slow color changing or the party mode.

hi - Is this LED Illuminator a complete replacement for the Supervision SV150T tower? Is it as simple as unplugging the fiber connector from the old tower and into this unit? (and hook it to power as directed in the installation manual?) Thanks!
 Reply

A  Answered on 3/17/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, This unit can replace the Supervision SV150T Tower, I do not think that the installation would be that simple because the fiber port connect may not be the same. Please review the ION-8000 Installation Manual for installation instructions.

How do you get this unit to change or cycle through the colors? Is additional equipment needed for that? What colors will this unit produce?
 Reply

A  Answered on 7/29/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Brian M.

There are two possible way to control this system. One is your standard light switch, the other is a control box and 24v power source. The best way to understand is to review the Owners / Operators Manual for the system.

?     Asked on 7/9/2015 by Ranz

I have a 6004, all the particulars of that unit are house within the plastic case. Does the 8000 install inside of the 6004 housing or does it sit exposed. How many components comprise this system as I see (2) pictured and how is it lined up with the fiber optic cable?
 Reply

A  Answered on 7/11/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Ranz, No the ION-8000 does not get installed inside of the 6004. You would completely remove your Fiberstars 6004 illuminator and the ION-8000 would take the place of your 6004 illuminator. You would receive both items in the picture the black item is the illuminator and the silver box is the controller. Your fiber-optic cable would go into the front port of the black LED illuminator.

Hello, If the bulb is still working the fan or another internal part may have failed. I would recommend going through he trouble-shooting in the owner's manual.

Hi Tyson, I would suggest the ION LED Fiber Optic Illuminator this is a great unit which is very bright, economical to operate and has a very long lamp life. For installation I would contact Visual Aquatics in Orlando they are great, let them know INYO sent you, here is there contact information http://www.visualaquatics.com/contact.html

I want to install the SV 150T6 or the IL-ion-8000-sb, I have not decided yet. I will be using this with 150' of the SV42 perimeter cable, is this correct the correct illuminator? If so this is a pool renovation and i want to use the SVLS 42 (which i will need 13 0f them) but i saw it is no longer available , that means that i have to use the SVTRK-42? i am right ? Thanks , in advance.
 Reply

A  Answered on 5/19/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Pablo, Either the SV150T6 illuminator or the IL-ion-8000-sb LED illuminator will work with the SV42 perimeter fiber optic cable. I really like ION Led Illuminator as it is very bright and the bulb lasts a very long time. The SVLS42 is no longer available and you would require the SVTRK-42 Track.

We are building a wall close to the pool and thinking of a waterfall. Where does everything go? Can the pool pump be used instead of a dedicated pump? How far can the illuminator be from the waterfall? How far from the wall to where the water hits the pool? In other words, how close does the waterfall have to be to the pool?
 Reply

A  Answered on 7/10/2006 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

The illuminator and pump can be placed where your exisiting pool pump and filter is located. The further the distance away from your pool, the more more fiber and a higher HP pump you will need. We recommend purchasing an additional pump for a waterfall. If you use the same pump, the waterfall will take away from the existing water circulation and your pool will not be properly filtered. For the basics on how it all works, please visit our Fiber Optic Waterfall Guide: http://www.inyopools.com/fiber_optics_waterfalls.aspx

Can I use Super Vision Fiber optic cable with a Fiberstars illuminator?
 Reply

A  Answered on 5/28/2006 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Both companies' cable will work with either the Fiberstars or Super Vision illuminator. You will need to make sure that you have the proper perimeter track in your pool to accommodate the appropriate cable.
