ARRI Introduces the AS18:
The"Brightest HMI You Can Plug Into the Wall"
ARRI Lighting introduces the new AS18, an innovative lamphead that works with a new power class of lamp: the 1800W SE HMI™. This lamp boasts an average life of 750 hours and a Luminous Efficacy of 92 Lumens per Watt (L/W). The Color Rendering Index (Ra) is greater than 90 at 6000K (CCT).
Now the "Brightest HMI you can plug into the wall".
When narrower beam angles are desired, ARRI offers the ARRISUN 18. The AS18 uses common ARRI spread lenses and a PAR reflector in combination with spot, medium and flood focus settings. Conversion kits are available to adapt an AS18 to the M18 (as well as an M18 to the AS18).
The AS18 is designed to be highly versatile and to achieve better lighting efficiencies in a new performance class. Intense and efficient, this light showcases convenient, cost-effective qualities in addition to the known characteristics and high standards of ARRI HMIs™. The Arri AS18 also can be used with a 1200W lamp.
The distinctive power class of the AS18 has also necessitated the design of a new electronic ballast. ARRI’s EB 1200/1800 incorporates the latest advancements in efficiency to supply proper power for these lamps.
The M18, AS18 and EB 1200/1800 are available starting summer 2009.
