ARRI M8 HMI Lamp Head

The smallest and lightest fixture in the M-Series, the M8 HMI Lamp Head from ARRI uses lensless MAX technology to combine the characteristics of a Fresnel and PAR source. With a focus range of 15-62°, normally only achieved with supplementary lenses, the M8's output more closely resembles that of a 1000W or 1200W HMI Fresnel but with a far more compact form factor. That translates to more light output with less physical labor and heavy breakable glass. Innovations include CCL, which compensates for power loss when using long cables and Cross Cooling which separates the electronics from the lamp housing and allows safe tilting of the head up to 90 degrees.

Structurally, the M8 employs a robust, tubular steel yoke and disc brakes to safely lock down the 17.2 lb head when tilting. There's no need to worry about moist locations; the M8 has an IP23 weather-resistant rating.

  • Lensless MAX Technology: lighter weight, easy to use
  • Light output comparable to 1200W fixture
  • Smallest lamp head in MAX line
  • Highly mobile for a wide range of uses
  • Focusable between 15° and 62°
  • Cross cooling allows safe operation even at 90° tilt
  • Uses existing 245 mm / 230 mm ARRI True Blue D12 and Chimera accessories
  • Uses existing 575/1200/1800W cables
  • Weather protection class IP23
  • Tilt locks to hold heavy accessories securely
  • ARRI 575/800 High Speed Ballast with ALF and DMX for M8

    The 575/800 High Speed Ballast with ALF and DMX for M8 has been introduced by ARRI to power the ground-breaking M8 lamp head with MAX reflector technology and 1,000Hz capability for frame rates of 1,000 fps and beyond. The EB 575/800W allows high speed shooting of sports events, industrial applications, automotive component testing and ballistics or material testing without any concerns about flicker. This versatile power source has been streamlined and packed with features like CCL to compensate for power loss over long cable runs and Active Line Filter. ALF 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.

    Compatible with ARRI D, X, Compact, Daylight 575W and 800W Daylights with CCL such as the M8, the EB 575/800W features DMX on/off and 100-50% dimming control, as well as automatic detection of lamp heads. The ballast employs both fan and convection cooling and a low noise mode for quiet operation on-set. To help you monitor the unit while shooting, the EB 575/800W has LED indicators for DMX, protective earth, over temperature, frequency mode, lamp on, and detected lamp head, as well as an illuminated On/Off switch.

  • Small, compact size
  • Dual wattage: 575 or 800W lamp
  • Automatic detection of connected 575W or 800W luminaire
  • Controllable frequency: choose between low noise, flicker free or high speed
  • CCL: Compensation of Cable Loss
  • ALF: Active Line Filter
  • DMX controlled on/off, dimming
  • Easy to read DMX setting on luminous display
  • Robust aluminum alloy casting with additional edge protection
  • User-friendly operation
  • ARRI Head to Ballast Cable 575/1200/1800W - 50'

    This is an ARRI Head to Ballast Cable. The 50' (15.2 m) long cable is compatible with 575, 1200 and 1800W heads such as the ARRISUN 5, 12 Plus, 18, and 40/25 heads. It's also compatible with the ARRIMAX M18, the ARRI X X5 and X12, D5 and D12 Fresnels and the Compact 575 and 1200 heads.
