Lüdenscheid, April 2017. With Kona XS, ERCO presents a new system of outdoor lighting tools designed to complete the range of compact luminaires with low power consumption. Kona XS may be small in design but it is big on quality, with lighting technology and a robust construction that meet the professional standards of architects, lighting designers, landscape and urban planners.
There are many situations in private or public outdoor lighting projects where small and precise lighting tools are preferable to a powerhouse approach - especially when used near to people in urban areas, for example when displaying objects in sculpture gardens or for outdoor areas near to cultural buildings such as museums and galleries. The required criteria in these applications, such as glare control or flexibility, are often easier to meet with several smaller luminaires than fewer large ones. ERCO has developed the new Kona XS range of luminaires specifically for this purpose - the smallest outdoor projector in the ERCO range has been reduced to the essentials, providing an efficient and robust tool for effortless planning and implementation of outdoor lighting solutions.
Reduced to the essentials
Kona XS adopts the design of its larger cousins in the Kona range, with a modern, tapered housing made of high-quality cast aluminum in an understated and distinct design. Finished with a double powder-coating for a durable refined look, the system supports easy maintenance and thanks to an IP65 rating, withstands exposure to dust and water, making it suitable for a multitude of lighting tasks in outdoor applications. The sturdy hinge with internal wiring can be locked in position for secure fixing of the beam direction, with a rotatable mounting plate for pinpoint alignment.
Precise and efficient lighting concepts
All luminaires in the Kona XS range feature highly efficient Spherolit LED lenses, offering the superb lighting quality and wide range of distribution options that lighting designers have come to expect from ERCO: projectors ranging from narrow spot and spot to flood, floodlights with rotationally symmetrical wide flood light distribution, and lens wallwashers with asymmetrical light distribution for highly uniform wallwashing of vertical surfaces. True to the ERCO luminaire system concept, all options are available with warm white (3000K) and neutral white (4000K) light colors, while different lumen packages broaden the scope for creative solutions still further. As a result, Kona XS enables precise and efficient lighting concepts in the outdoor sector without detracting from the magic of the night.
