Innovative Engineering

The MXP Mini is a masterpiece of innovative engineering. It is economical, yet made of heavy duty Stainless Steel and machined by smart CNCs at exceptionally sharp tolerances. No compromises are made in any component quality – it’s just smart engineering.

Mounting Bracket

For the MXP mini we designed a smart, sturdy mounting bracket for easy installation and firm mounting. The laser engraved sides feature clear angle markings to aid installation, while the bottom hole layout allows for various ways to mount the jet. It’s made entirely of heavy duty stainless steel.

Unibody Cutter

The new cutter of the MXP mini is enclosed in a rocksolid stainless steel housing. The unibody design of the housing allows for passive cooling even without the presence of water to ensure the durability and longevity of the cutter.

Beautiful Finishing

Satin, Brushed, Bead-blasted and Laser-generated finishings are used across the body of the MXP mini to create a beautiful, timeless design. The finishings are carefully created and crafted in a way that they withstand extreme environmental conditions.

Praised for the
full-stream lighting and the incredible color richness.

The MXPmini features the same LED engine as its larger siblings (MXP series), giving it spectacular intensity and vivid colors. The powerful light source makes light travel through the entire stream – from the output of the nozzle up to where the stream meets the surface. Vibrant colors stand out in the dark and create this fantastic, magical effect.

Advanced electronics, smart technologies, and special optics work together to create laser-focused, high-intensity lighting in 4.2 billion colors – at just 8W at full power. Easily controllable via DMX/RDM, or the more efficient led:bus.

All-new Cutter

Jumping Jets are made to pop, burst, jump. Over and over. The MXP mini features an all-new, re-designed cutter. Completely re-engineered from scratch and using intelligent technologies, the new cutter can do its magic all day and night long. It can work continuously without breaking a sweat.

Virtually inaudible and consuming just a fraction of the power the previous generation needed, the MXP mini is the most efficient Jumping Jet we have ever created. It makes an excellent cut, at exceptional speeds, at a hard to perceive rate. This makes it possible to generate mind-boggling water effects that were traditionally possible only with much larger systems.

100% duty rated

The MXP mini can work continuously all-day. There is no limit to this and there is no need to cut the stream every now and then.

90% more efficient

The phenomenal engineering of the new cutting mechanism makes it 90% more energy efficient compared to the previous generation.

98% more silent

The new cutter is virtually inaudible. There is no mechanical sound or other noises when the device is activated or deactivated.

0.10sec high-speed cutting

One 10th of the second. That’s how long it takes for the cutting mechanism to cut the laminar stream. And it can do this 10 times per second at an unforeseen rate and repeatability.

Zero splash-free cutting

The lightning-fast cutter combined with the internal two-stage drop-catcher is what creates a splash-free, crystal clear water stream flying in the air.

Beautiful to see, challenging to conceive.

Fontana jumping jets in operation

One cable.

Our most advanced technologies embedded.

The MXP mini needs only one cable for power & control of the light and the cutter. It work with direct DMX/RDM and can be configured remotely via NFC — even without power.

Fontana Jumping Jets are now controllable via direct DMX/ RDM connection. A standardized, universal method of control that gives you complete control of the jet, with a wide selection of controllers and apps available. It also provides vital diagnostics and the device status back to the main controller via RDM (Remote Device Management).

NFC Configuration Technology

The MXP mini Jumping Jets now feature the new Fontana NFC configuration technology. A simple tap on the jet with your smartphone, and you can see the device status, configure its settings and enable or disable the standalone mode. And you can do all these without having to power up the jet.

  • Automatic Discovery
  • No Power required
  • DMX setup
  • Usage Statistic

1 One DMX connection is required for both the cutter and the light.

2 A non-DMX version of the MXPmini is also available and can be controlled via PLCs or other electrical command-based systems.

3 Fontana is a recognized and formally registered DMX/RDM manufacturer listed with the ID 0965h.

4 The Tapp app is currently only available for Android devices, due to software and hardware limitations of Apple devices.

50% less wiring

The MXP mini requires just one cable to operate. This drastically reduces the workhours at the site and the cable costs – practically by 50%.

80% less panel equipment

All the controllers and drivers are integrated to the jet, you don’t have to make complex control panels with Solid State Relays, LED controllers etc.

Standalone mode available

In this mode you only need to provide power to the jet and it creates light shows and beautiful choreographies on its won.
