Project Spotlight

Ocean Park, Hong Kong

Soul of the Ocean – a permanent multimedia show for Ocean Park, a premier international theme park and resort destination. A combination of music, dancing fountains, special effects, and an international cast of 20 artists create a spectacular experience.

The show extensively uses Fontana FPK series and Robotic Systems for its dancing fountains. The YSwitch-enabled kits create stunning water effects – highlighting the phenomenal show-focused capabilities. Despite the vibrant ambient lighting, the powerful LEDs and special optics make the jets stand out with myriads of colors.

This show fountain also uses Fontana’s latest Robotic Systems.

Stainless Steel 316L

The FPK 9000 is made of pure, heavy-duty Stainless Steel. The housing is made of a solid piece of Stainless Steel. The strong faceplate is specially treated to withstand impacts and loads, while the premium finishing provides a long-lasting sheen, exceptionally resistant to corrosion and deterioration.

Precision Engineering

The “Precision Engineering” philosophy of Fontana is evident in every element. Intelligent and exceptionally precise CNCs process all parts of the FPK 9000. Every bit is carefully designed for a specific purpose, and all parts fit with each other perfectly, in a factory-assembled system.

Safety First

The top surface of the FPK 9000 is specially treated and designed for increased slip resistance – shoes on or not. And being entirely flush into the ground, the FPK 9000 cover helps keeping toes and heels safe. All electrical parts run on low voltage.

Commercial Grade

All parts of the FPK 9000 are made for use in commercial water features. Demanding projects, challenging environmental conditions, unattended access to the public, strict regulations, and erratic maintenance are precisely what the FPK 9000 is made for.

Show-grade Lighting

Using Fontana’s latest and most advanced technologies, the FPK 9000 offers incredibly poweful and vibrant colors, making it ideal for show-oriented and interactive fountains.

Vivid Lighting

The light source of the FPK 9000 comes from our show-oriented technologies. It offers exceptional vibrancy and color fidelity – on the entire color spectrum. This translates to magical lighting shows and unforgettable experiences.

Smart Technologies

A genius LED module. With comprehensive self-protections, advanced color processing capabilities and universal control, the FPK 9000 is the smartest of its kind. It’s also the most reliable and heavy-duty to use in interactive water features.

Application-specific Optics that concentrate light on the jet.

Embedded Microprocessor constantly monitors the fixture.

Active Thermal Protection for enhanced operation & lifespan.

Works with long cables without being affected by voltage drop.

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 17 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.

led:bus ID

Addressable Fixtures

Each light has a unique ID and can be configured to listen to a specific address for multi-color light shows.

led:bus ID

Integrated Drivers

The LED drivers are integrated to the module simplifying everything and significantly reducing costs.

led:bus ID


led:bus is a heavy-duty, extremely reliable communication protocol. It is encrypted too.

led:bus is compatible with DMX, DMX/RDM & DALI
Direct DMX/RDM

The FPK 9000 is also available with Direct DMX/RDM control.

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.

Reverse Polarity

Active Thermal Control

Constant, real-time balancing of Temperature and Performance.

Reverse Polarity

1The Tapp app is available only for Android due to current technical limitations of Apple iOS.
The NFC DMX/RDM Controller is an optional accessory – use suffix [.DMX] when ordering.

A variety of precision nozzles can be connected on the jet.

The FPK 9000 is available with a range of nozzles as a standard configuration and can be ordered with custom nozzles like Foam, Lily, and Rotating jets.

Integrated Flow Straightener

The Fontana-designed internal flow straightener reduces turbulence from the pump supply and optimizes the flow performance of the nozzle.
