This black True Blue D40 4,000W HMI Fresnel from ARRI is the largest fixture in the completely redesigned True Blue series. The 11.8" Fresnel with a beam angle variable from 6.5 - 59° is protected with stainless steel mesh. Pressure die-cast and extruded aluminum alloy components make the D40 lighter without sacrificing strength while improving corrosion resistance.
Since front-heavy accessories like large softboxes are routinely used, ARRI has incorporated a sliding stirrup that allows you to find the light's center of gravity based on the weight of the accessory. A disc brake-type tilt-lock secures the head at the chosen angle with minimal force. Cross-Cooling channels the air through the housing so effectively the D40 can be used at almost any angle. Accessory brackets, a problem in the past, are now adjustable to hold 2 or 4 scrims or filter frames to eliminate light leaks. You can also use the D40 rain or shine thanks to improved IP23-rated weather protection.
ARRI's Cross-Cooling system moves a stream of air around the Fresnel lens and through
the lamphead. In addition, air is channeled through the extruded aluminum alloy housing, reducing lens and housing temperatures. Cross-Cooling allows ARRI True Blues to safely operate at almost any tilt-angle
Adjustable Accessory Brackets
Location crews need space in the accessory bracket for up to four scrims; studio crews suffer from the light leak this creates. Now two-position True Blue adjustable accessory brackets quickly accommodate two or four scrims. By reducing the space between the scrims and
the lens, unwanted reflected and spill light is minimized
The Location Top Latch is specially coated for improved corrosion-resistance and is spring-loaded for fast operation even when hot
Modern fixtures use a wide variety of softboxes, scrollers and other front mounted accessories. Simply slide ARRI's stirrup bracket to quickly and easily adjust the fixture's
center of gravity
ARRI's improved design creates a positive lock so there's no slippage when using heavy
accessories. A stainless steel friction disc functions like a disc brake allowing the
lamphead to be completely locked off with a minimum of force
The D40's optional barndoors use a special alloy with a high strength-to-weight ratio. The barndoor leaves withstand bending and deforming far better than traditional barndoors. In addition, they are now easily tightened to avoid slipping while the larger leaf design provides better control and sharper cutoff
Barndoor Safety Catch
Although the top latch holds accessories securely at any tilt angle, the lamphead features a second safety catch mounted on the bottom accessory bracket that doesn't restrict rotation
Stainless Steel Lens Protection
The laser-cut hexagonal safety mesh maximizes light transmission and is tough enough to withstand location abuse
True Blue fixtures have been designed for serviceability using more common parts across the
line. True Blues require only three Torx drivers to disassemble the complete fixture. Removing a maximum of six universal Torx screws provides easy access to all interior parts. ARRI's aluminum extrusion makes cleaning fixtures easy and an advanced paint process ensures that True Blues will look as good as they perform
IP23 Weather Protection
True Blue fixtures are manufactured to the IP23 standard and are suitable for indoor use or outdoor use providing a degree of protection against falling rain up to a 60° angle from vertical
All True Blue fixtures carry not only CE declaration, but also an independently assessed TUV certification
