Our favorite Arri HMI the M18, 1800w of pure daylight 5600k color temperature. No hot Arri HMI lens to change. No more broken lenses. No more additional lens box to pack and carry. Plugs into a 20 amp edison household outlet. Spot / flood beam control. Brighter than a 1200 par the Arri 1800w will soon be your favorite Arri HMI too! The M18 HMI Light can also be lamped with a 1200w HMI single ended lamp. It has outstanding photometrics with light output that some say equals a 4k hmi.
The "Brightest HMIs You Can Plug Into the Wall"
Based on the design principles of the Academy Award-winning ARRIMAX, ARRI Lighting introduces the new 1800, an innovative lamphead that works with a new power class of lamp: the Arri 1800 Bulb 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).
The 1800 is a lens-less, open face lighting fixture that combines the desired light distribution from the optics of a PAR and a Fresnel fixture. The unique ARRIMAX reflector design creates diverging rays to produce a crisp shadow.
With a beam angle (HPA) of 20 to 60 degrees and a wide usable field angle, the M18 is designed to be both intense and efficient. 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 M18 to the AS18 (as well as an AS18 to the M18).
The 1800s are designed to be highly versatile and to achieve better lighting efficiencies in a new performance class. Intense and efficient, these lights showcase convenient, cost-effective qualities in addition to the known characteristics and high standards of ARRI HMI's. These new units also support a 1200W lamp.
The distinctive power class of these lights 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.
