  • 6ARRI Filter Frame for 12-18K HMI Fresnel

The ARRI 12/18kW HMI Fresnel System features a powerful HMI lamp head with a 24.5" Fresnel lens, a 12/18kW electronic ballast with Active Line Filter and DMX support, four-leaf barndoors, filter frame, and a 50' head to ballast cable. The daylight-balanced lamp is capable of outputting up to 18,000 watts and work from 190-250 VAC with the use of the ballast.

The Active Line Filter provides a higher Power Factor resulting in more efficient power use. This is accomplished by shifting the voltage and current waveforms in phase and minimizing harmonics and spikes. The ALF also minimizes the current carried back on the neutral leg of the power systems. Included with the light are a four leaf barndoor set and a filter frame for modifying light as well as a 50' head to ballast cable.

ARRI 12K - 18KW HMI Fresnel Light

The Daylight range of studio Fresnels using Double-Ended HMI daylight lamps has been the mainstay of the film industry for many years. Arri HMI Spotlights have the largest lenses in their class and extremely even light distribution.

When fitted with an 18K HMI bulb (available separately), this HMI Fresnel will turn night into day with 1446 footcandles 13 feet in diameter, from a distance of 66 feet @ full spot.
It will throw 167 footcandles 101 feet in diameter from the same distance, @ full flood.

The recommended, optional 12-18K electronic ballast is flicker-free, and may be used with studio/theater DMX-50 capable control boards and dimmers. It has a compact design which offers easy handling in the field. Safety circuits such as over-voltage, over-temperature and short-circuit protection give safe and reliable operation.

Cooler Fixture Housing

Constructed of ribbed aluminum allowing lower operating temperatures and extending bulb life.

Lighting Control

A barndoor set and filter frame are available separately to control the shape and color of the output of the fixture.

ARRI Head to Ballast Cable for ARRI 18/12Kw HMI Fresnel and ARRIMAX 18/12kW PAR - 50'

This ARRI 50' Head to Ballast Cable for ARRI 18/12Kw HMI Fresnel and ARRIMAX 18/12kW connects the ARRI 18/12Kw HMI Frensel and ARRIMAX 18/12kW PAR to its ballast.

ARRI EB MAX 12/18 Ballast

The ARRI EB MAX 12/18 Ballast is intended for use with select ARRI fresnel lamp heads. This ballast has ALF (Active Line Filter), which provides a higher power factor resulting in more efficient power use. This is accomplished by shifting the voltage and current waveforms in phase and minimizing harmonics and spikes. ALF also minimizes the current carried back on the neutral leg of the power systems. Cable Loss Compensation, which prevents power loss in head-to-ballast cables up to 300' long, is also featured. The ballast has a low-noise switch and a power factor of 0.99.

This ballast has substantial DMX control. In addition to On/Off and dimming, both operation mode and frequency can be controlled remotely. For ease of use, indicators on the ballast's front panel display the lamp wattage, DMX channel, operation mode, and selected lamp frequency. High speed shooters will appreciate features such as Active Line Filter (ALF), and AutoScan, ensuring optimum light and image quality for high-speed recordings up to 1000 fps.
