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 (e.g., 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. The Kona XS range of luminaires was developed specifically for this purpose; the smallest outdoor projector in the range has been reduced to the essentials, providing an efficient and robust tool for planning and implementation of outdoor lighting solutions.

Kona XS adopts the design of its larger cousins in the Kona range, with a modern, tapered housing made of high-quality cast aluminum. Finished with a double powder-coating for a durable refined look, the system supports easy maintenance and provides an IP65 rating to withstand exposure to dust and water, making it suitable for a multitude of lighting tasks in outdoor applications. The sturdy hinge offers a 130° tilt with internal wiring and can be locked in position for secure fixing of the beam direction, with a 350° rotatable mounting plate for pinpoint alignment.

The LED module for the Kona XS outdoor lighting tools consists of high-efficiency LEDs on metal core PCBs. The control gear is a switchable integral driver. All luminaires in the Kona XS range feature a Spherolit LED lens, a collimating lens made of optical polymer for a wide range of distribution options—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. All options are available with warm white (3000K) and neutral white (4000K) light colors with 210 lumens, 275 lumens, 630 lumens, or 825 lumens to broaden the scope for creative solutions.
