Premium Materials

Stainless Steel 316L

The FPK mini is a masterpiece of engineering. It uses heavy-duty Stainless Steel extensively and the nozzle is machined by smart CNCs at exceptional precision. The strong faceplate is specially treated to withstand impacts and loads, while the premium finishing provides a long-lasting sheen.

Vandal-proof, UV-Stabilized PC

The only non-Stainless Steel element of the FPKmini is the indestructible and vandal-proof lens. A special grade of UV stabilized and resistant PC is used to protect the electronics while providing phenomenal transparency and color mixing to achieve the optimum lighting output of the LEDs.

It’s the incredible materials knowledge we have mastered that allows us to create such remarkable products.

Show-grade Lighting

You wouldn’t believe the power and richness of color that comes from such a small LED fixture. Using our latest and most advanced technologies, the FPK mini offers incredible intensity and vibrant colors, achieving show-grade lighting qualities.

Vivid Lighting

The light source of the FPK mini 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 little LED module. With comprehensive self-protections, advanced color processing capabilities, and universal control, the FPK mini is the smartest of its kind. It’s also the easiest and most economical 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 mini 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

Reverse Polarity

Protected from accidentally incorrect connections.

Reverse Polarity

Voltage Surge

Protected from sudden surges in the circuit voltage.

Reverse Polarity


Industry-leading Technology that eliminates flicker at 4.6KHz.

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

Nozzles for the FPK mini are compatible with each other, meaning that you can change the effect of your fountain at any time, even years after the installation, giving a fresh look and a different water display.

Integrated Flow Straightener

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

Integrated Swivel

The integrated swivel design allows you to easily adjust the stream angle with the kit installed, without having to remove or dismantle it.

Universal Connection

The FPK mini comes with a universal barb connection for ¾” flexible hose, making it easy to use anywhere in the world.

Simple, Secure Mounting

The slab-hanging format allows easy and secure mounting on slabs up to 80mm thick by fastening only 2 screws (included).

Safety First

Anti-Slip Surface

The top surface of the FPK mini is specially treated and designed to be slip-resistant – shoes on or not.

Recessed – Flush Mounted

At just 3mm thickness and being entirely flush into the ground, the FPK mini keeps toes and heels safe.


The material we use for the light is used in bulletproof applications, making the FPK mini exceptionally impact and vandal resistant.

Meets toe-entrapment code

The FPK mini surface combined with the nozzle design complies with the safety code for toe entrapment.
