The ULX900 is considered by all means the most powerful underwater light for fountains. It offers record-breaking light output and incredible color richness, amplified by sophisticated color-mixing lenses. Full of tech and smart electronics, it uses our new ULX series housing — a rock-solid, all-stainless steel body made of pure Stainless Steel.
All Stainless Steel
The ULX900 is meant for large-scale WaterShow or Architectural fountains. It performs equally great in stunning color (RGBW or RGBAW) or pure, elegant white. The high-quality and high-clarity light output, combined with the scientific-grade optics, the heavy-duty housing and extensive certifications, make the ULX900 perfect for those high-end, high-profile fountain projects.
All Stainless Steel
- Solid metal
The ULX900 is packed with tech. The PCB looks like a small computer, because it is a small computer: an intelligent network of heavy-duty electronics, the microprocessor, embedded drivers, firmware and hardware self-protections, and Fontana’s most recent technologies. All work together to deliver the highest light output, stunning colors, and fast communication with the control system — led:bus or Direct DMX/RDM.
The embedded microprocessor. It’s a masterpiece of lighting electronics control and the heart of our technology. A technology we constantly refine and improve for longer than 15 years.
The brain of the system constantly monitors the fixture status & temperature, optimizing performance on the fly. It communicates with the controller receiving and interpreting data about ID, color and intensity.
At the same time, the system ensures that data get delivered consistently and intelligent sub-systems keep an eye for possibly improper electrical conditions, blocking off noise and interference.
Advanced Electronics — our best technologies yet. Each Fontana LED module looks like a small computer. The profound attention to detail you would expect of Fontana is evident in every sub-system.
Unparalleled Color Fidelity. The color engine uses high-definition drivers, embedded on the PCB. This method allows for accurate, high-precision and high-fidelity control of each LED.
Famous Reliability. The discrete components of the PCB are carefully selected to meet the strictest quality, reliability and performance standards. The smart self-protections further improve the resilience of the fixture.
led:bus is a language. It’s the language that all Fontana lights speak – a technology that we designed from scratch for underwater devices. It’s fully compatible with other languages like DMX, DMX/RDM and Dali. But with led:bus you don’t need to learn anything new, because led:bus is made to work behind the scenes – autonomously and reliably. Led:bus also allows the use of fewer and smaller cables to power and control multiple light fixtures leading to significant cost and resources savings.
With led:bus, all you have to do is connect the cables — and the whole system works by itself. The simplicity of led:bus leads to neater, more organized and manageable installations of complicated systems.
Simple 3-core Cables
You can use simple, non-shielded 3-core cables to power & control multiple fixtures.
Each light has a unique ID and can be configured to listen to a specific address for multi-color light shows.
The LED drivers are integrated to the module simplifying everything and significantly reducing costs.
led:bus is a heavy-duty, extremely reliable communication protocol. It is encrypted too.
Special versions are also available with Direct DMX/RDM control for universal integration in Show fountains.
Fontana is a formally registered DMX/RDM manufacturer listed with the ID 0965h.
Voltage Drop: Irrelevant. Traditional LED technologies are severely affected by voltage drop. When longer cables are used, the lights further away from the power supply have lower intensity. In some occasions, they might not even work at all.
The Fontana technology is unaffected by voltage drop. Fixtures work at their full potential on any voltage between 12-24V DC (true margins: 10V to 36V DC). Every fixture outputs 100% of its intensity regardless of how far it is from the power supply.
Active Thermal Control
Constant, real-time balancing of Temperature and Performance.
Protected from accidentally incorrect connections.
Protected from sudden surges in the circuit voltage.
Industry-leading Technology that eliminates flicker at 4.6KHz.
The pioneering Fontana lighting technology is tested and certified by independent organizations & laboratories to comply with the world’s strictest regulations & standards.

45 High Power LEDs made by Cree, Inc. (USA)
30 in RGBAW version
High-performance and high-reliability electronics work together with high-efficiency and high-power LEDs to create a stunning light output — in white or multi-color. Tight binning and high CRI ensure consistent light output across all fixtures. Color versions offer exceptional color mixing and coverage.
Custom colors and color temperatures (e.g. 4000K, Amber, RGBAW) are available on request. Power & lumens can be modified via firmware to meet project requirements.
10-30V DC Operating Range. Voltage drop does not affect light intensity.
25° advanced, optically-clear Lenses
Also available: 15°, 42°, 65°, 80° and elliptical lenses.
Fontana Lighting Module Gen.3
Application-specific Fontana LED module, designed for the intended use of the fixture. With embedded microprocessor, embedded drivers, advanced electronics, software and hardware protections. Each module is addressable and can be used with led:bus, DMX/RDM or Dali. Single-color versions require only power supply.
The embedded processor on the fixture constantly monitors the operation of the fixture to ensure optimal operation.
The Active Thermal Protection system uses a smart algorithm to gradually reduce the brightness in case of overheating, ensuring the max. possible light output.
Additional hardware systems provide overvoltage, voltage surge and reverse polarity protection.
