ARRI SkyPanel S30-RP Daylight LED Remote Phosphor Softlight (Blue/Silver, Edison)

BH #ARS30RPM3M56 • MFR #L0.0007723
ARRI SkyPanel S30-RP Daylight LED Remote Phosphor Softlight (Blue/Silver, Edison)
Key Features
  • Manual Yoke
  • Panel Surface Area: 14 x 11.8"
  • 110° Beam Spread
  • 5,600K Remote Phosphor Panel
ARRI continues to broaden their LED line and reaffirm their commitment to accurate color rendering with the introduction of the blue/silver SkyPanel S30-RP Daylight LED Remote Phosphor Softlight. Supported by a manual aluminum yoke, the panel's surface area measures 14 x 11.8", making it an ideal portable, on-the-go light source for mobile applications. Output is controlled via interchangeable phosphor panels to achieve a specific Kelvin temperature instead of adding phosphors to blue LEDs. The powerful native LEDs then excite the phosphor panel that's mounted like a filter in front of the fixture. This method not only uses less electronics resulting in a lower price point, but delivers a color rendition that approaches current definitions of "perfection" and is 10% brighter than its color tuneable S30-C counterpart, which has an output equivalent to a 1,000W tungsten softlight. Both versions of the light draw only 240W.

ARRI continues to broaden their LED line and reaffirm their commitment to accurate color rendering with the introduction of the blue/silver SkyPanel S30-RP Daylight LED Remote Phosphor Softlight. Supported by a manual aluminum yoke, the panel's surface area measures 14 x 11.8", making it an ideal portable, on-the-go light source for mobile applications. Output is controlled via interchangeable phosphor panels to achieve a specific Kelvin temperature instead of adding phosphors to blue LEDs. The powerful native LEDs then excite the phosphor panel that's mounted like a filter in front of the fixture.

Both versions of the light draw only 240W.

This rendition of the light ships with a 5,600K panel with an impressively high CRI of 94, but optional 2,700K, 3,200K, 4,300K and 6,500K phosphor panels with CRIs of 93, 94, 97 and 98 respectively are available, as well as a Chroma Green panel. Dimming from 0-100% can be adjusted locally with the SkyPanel's onboard controller or remotely via DMX or over a LAN. Besides inputs and outputs appropriate to these functions, The light has a USB-A port for downloading firmware upgrades from a thumb drive, PC or Mac.

The SkyPanel S30-RP can be used worldwide, thanks to its included 90-250 VAC power supply but it can also use optional 23-36 VDC batteries when mains power is unavailable. Besides the power supply, the light comes with a combo baby/junior (5/8" | 1-1/8") pin and a standard diffuser. This version of the light comes with a 9.8'-long Edison DC power cable.

Remote Phosphor Panels for Precise Color Rendering and High CRIs
These high-quality phosphors deliver outstanding color rendition and outstanding light output. The remote phosphor versions of the SkyPanel are roughly 10% brighter than the color tuneable versions and have a lower price point due to less complex electronics. Different color temperature panels are available, including 2,700K, 3,200K, 4,300K, 5,600K, 6,500K, and Chroma Green.
True Soft Light Beam Quality
Soft lights are known for their smooth quality of light and even, uniform beam field. SkyPanel's combination of a precise selection of diffusion panels, LED mixing chamber and large surface area allow for the light output to wrap around objects, eliminating sharp shadows and making for an ideal beauty light. The beam field is homogeneous in both color and intensity.
Natural Shadow Rendition
The SkyPanel produces not just impressive light quality, but excellent shadow rendering as well. The soft shadows cut cleanly without exhibiting multiple edges or color fringing.
Versatility Built In
  • While the SkyPanel was designed to be used primarily as a soft light to illuminate people, various built-in features make it extremely adaptable to other uses.
  • With the onboard battery input, SkyPanel can be run off industry-standard batteries. The S30 can be operated at full power on battery power.
  • The SkyPanel also makes an effective space light outputting a large downward-directed pool of color controllable soft light through an optional silk cylinder.
Built to Last
Made in Germany to the high standards for which all ARRI products are known, SkyPanel is constructed from resilient materials and assembled by hand with great care. The combination of an aluminum core with fiberglass-reinforced thermoplastics results in a solid fixture that can withstand heavy daily use on busy film sets. The easily-services electronics have been designed to last beyond a minimum of 25,000, up to a maximum of 50,000 hours while the LED light engine even allows for re-calibration.
Highly Controllable
The SkyPanel user interface is designed for ease of use with a wide range of controls available to the user. In addition to the on-board controls, all functions can be remotely adjusted via DMX or LAN connections.

question

What batteries are you using on the Arri sky panel s30? And what volt are your batteries?
Asked by: athena l.
According to the user manual included with the ARRI SkyPanel Battery Adapter Plate, you may use an Anton/Bauer or V-mount battery that has a voltage of 14.4V, with a minimum of 100 Wh. 210 W is nominal, while 240 W is the maximum recommended for usage with the ARRI Anton Bauer Battery Plate for Skypanel S30 and S60 LED Soft Lights, B&H # ARBPABSP, or the ARRI V-Mount Battery Plate for Skypanel S30 and S60 LED Soft Lights, B&H # ARBPVMSP. Always use two batteries of the same type, age, and state of charge.

question

Which mount of this SkyPanel should I buy if I want to attach a center mount yoke? Is a center mount yoke the best way to have the SkyPanel stand vertical on the floor? What is the best mount to have the lamp stand vertical on the floor?
Asked by: Ames
Not much reason to spin it vertical as its basically square
