Powercast Projectors, floodlights, wallwashers
Powercast is a universal and economic range of lighting tools for outdoor applications. The projectors, floodlights and wallwashers all feature Spherolit technology for efficient visual comfort. Their system design with a uniform housing shape produces symmetrical light distributions for accent lighting, but also various wide beam distribution patterns. Powercast is a versatile range of luminaires used, for example, for the illumination of vegetation or the washlighting of façades. With its multilayer powder-coated surfaces, a lockable hinge, a sturdy mounting bracket, and a double cable entry for through-wiring, Powercast distinguishes itself as an efficient lighting tool that proves easy to install.

The quality of the optical systems has a major influence on the overall efficiency of an LED. To produce directed light, as occurs in spotlights, ERCO develops their optical projection systems in-house. A collimating lens, as a secondary lens, is the interface between the LED lens on the printed circuit board and the exchangeable Spherolit lenses acting as tertiary lenses. The collimating lens directs the light of the LEDs into a parallel beam in order that the required light distribution can then be created by the tertiary lens. The principle of total internal reflection in the collimating lens contributes to the high efficiency of the optical system. Decades of experience in injection-moulded polymers ensure the highest quality levels from our in-house production plant.
Characteristics with Spherolit lenses
To accentuate small objects with high light intensity or to cover large distances between luminaire and object. Beam angle < 10°.
The light intensity distribution for highlighting objects of all types, especially to accentuate three-dimensional shapes.
Beam angle: 10°-20°.
Used for efficient accentuation of large objects or to uniformly emphasise a complete spatial zone.
25° - 35°.
To give a flexible, flood illumination of surfaces and spatial zones, especially in retail presentation. Beam angle> 45°.
The Spherolit lens, oval flood, has an axially symmetrical light intensity distribution, producing an oval beam of about 30° by 90°.
The light intensity distribution of the lens wallwasher is designed to provide very high uniformity.
The housing has two cable entries and the mounting bracket a long hole for easy through-wiring. This ensures efficient mounting and connection of rows of luminaires.
The sturdy hinge with graduations facilitates a wide range of tilt and precise alignment of the luminaires.

Powercast with mounting bracket can be mounted directly on the floor, wall or ceiling. Alternatively, it can also be fixed to existing poles and cantilevers.
The double cable entry on the housing and an oval hole in the mounting bracket are provided to ensure easy through-wiring and efficient installation when connecting a number of luminaires.
The sturdy pivot bracket with scale ensures a large swivelling range and consistent alignment of the luminaires.
