Powercast is a universal range of economic lighting tools for outdoor applications. The projectors and floodlights feature cutting-edge technologies including LEDs and Spherolit reflectors for efficient visual comfort.

Their system design with a uniform housing shape produces symmetrical light distributions for narrow spot to wide flood accent lighting, but also various wide beam distribution patterns. Powercast is a highly versatile, cost-effective and flexible range of luminaires used, for example, for the illumination of facade details, signs or vegetation. The rectangular housing with protection mode IP65 encloses the lighting technology and the control gear.

With its multilayer powder-coated surfaces, a lockable hinge, a sturdy mounting bracket, and a double cable entry for through-wiring, Powercast distinguishes itself as an efficient lighting tool that proves easy to install and ensures excellent protection against the effects of the weather. For high illuminances, Powercast is available with efficient metal halide lamps. An optional internal anti-dazzle cylinder can be used for additional glare protection in applications where visual comfort is particularly crucial.

The Powercast models with low-voltage halogen lamps are valuable for dimmable lighting. Just as in spotlights with Spherolit reflectors for indoor applications, the Powercast reflectors can also be replaced without tools. So here, too, the light distribution can be changed to suit the application. As a particularly low-maintenance, energy-efficient alternative, Powercast projectors are also available with LED technology in warm white and daylight white light colours.

Optimal lighting control is ensured by lens systems consisting of a specially developed collimator and different lenses for spot, flood and wide flood characteristics. The DALI-compatible luminaires for low-voltage halogen lamps have digitally address able control gear which means that each luminaire can be individually controlled – for instance using the ERCO Light System DALI with its integral ERCO Light Studio software.
