Small luminaires appear unobtrusive and direct the focus onto the light. Small luminaire dimensions are convenient particularly in compact spaces.
A prominent architectural detail, Grasshopper is designed for versatile use in the outdoor area. Whether it's accentuating information signs and objects or floodlighting trees or walls - you will find the right light distribution for every task. Their aluminium housing is exceptionally weather-resistant and can be mounted in any position.
The luminaire head can be tilted and rotated in any direction. Maintenance-free optoelectronics guarantee maximum efficiency to save our resources and result in lower operating costs. Precise photometrics prevent spill light as a further eco-friendly factor.

Individualise Grasshopper for your use case
With our “ERCO individual” service we offer you extensive options for the individualisation of series products as well as support in the development of sophisticated special luminaires. In order to match Grasshopper even more efficiently to your project requirements, further variants are available on request in addition to the series configuration. These include, for example:
High-power LEDs: 3000K CRI 95 or 2700K, 3500K, 4000K with CRI 92
Housing: 10,000 further colours

Very narrow to wide beam, rotationally symmetrical light distribution for accent lighting.
8W - 18W
840 lm - 2475 lm
Narrow spot, Spot, Flood
The ideal angle of tilt (α) for accent lighting with Grasshopper projectors is around 30°. This emphasises the three-dimensionality of architectural details, sculptures or trees, without distorting the spatial impression with excessive shadowing.
Arrangement: α = 30°
Wide-beam illumination of larger objects or spatial zones.
Asymmetrical light distribution for highly uniform wallwashing.
12W - 18W
1260 lm - 2475 lm
Uniform vertical illuminance in the outdoor area defines spatial borders. Here, the distance (a) of Grasshopper lens wallwashers from the wall should be around one third of the room height (h). This results in an angle of tilt (γ) of approx. 55°.
Arrangement: a = 1/3 x h or γ = 55°
For good longitudinal uniformity, the spacing (d) of Grasshopper lens wallwashers may be up to 1.2 times the offset from the wall (a).
Arrangement: d ≤ 1.2 x a
The optimal wall offset and luminaire spacing for each product are indicated in the wallwasher tables in the catalogue and the product data sheets.
