Color Kinetics from Philips provides an easy way to add year-round outdoor architectural LED lighting that can change with the season’s colors.

ColorBurst Powercore gen2 RGBW is a high-output, exterior-rated LED lighting fixture designed for accent and site lighting. The fixtures deliver full-color and white, tunable light output to provide dynamic uplighting, floorlighting, and other decorative lighting applications.

The lights can be controlled with a standalone dial for configuring effects of the lights and provide simple dial and button controls that offer fingertip triggering or full color light shows and dynamic effects. The ColorDial offers eight onboard effects and 16 configurable scenes.


The Philips Color Kinetics Data Enabler Pro merges line voltage with control data and delivers them over a single standard cable to the fixtures, dramatically simplifying installation and lowering total system cost. lighting dial
