ARRI M40 HMI Head

The ARRI M40 HMI Head is a location work horse. Whenever you need to punch light through a silk or bounce light off a reflective surface, an M40 is the ultimate answer. At the design stage, the interaction of lamp, reflector and converter lens was taken into consideration and computer simulated, resulting in unmatched performance. The M40 can be fitted with a 2,500 or 4,000W single-ended HMI lamp, making it a very versatile lighting fixture.

The M40 uses lensless MAX technology to combine the characteristics of a Fresnel and PAR source. With a focus range of 18 - 52°, normally only achieved with supplementary lenses, the M40 outperforms the brightness of its predecessor, the ARRISUN 40/25 by approximately 30% while throwing an even beam with sharp shadows. Innovations include CCL, which compensates for power loss when using long cables and Cross Cooling which separates the electronics from the lamp housing, thus ensuring greater longevity of the head and lamp.

Structurally, the M40 employs a robust, tubular steel yoke and disc brakes to safely lock down the head when tilting. The head weighs in 6.6 lb lighter than its predecessor due to intelligent design, while it's still able to use all of the ARRISUN 40/25's accessories. Don't worry about moist locations either; the M40 has an IP23 weather-resistant rating.

CCL
The lamphead is equipped with a CCL module (compensation for cable loss). When operated with the ARRI EB 2.5/4 kW ballast with CCL, full power is maintained all the way to the lamp even when very long cables are used. This means uniformly high light output independent from cable length.
Steel Yoke with two Disc Brakes
In order to hold even the heaviest accessories safely in place, the M40 sports a tubular steel yoke and two disc brakes. A single, robust steel handle allows one-hand operation for tilting.
Accessories Reusable
The M40 has the same accessory diameter as the current ARRISUN 40/25 so that existing barndoors and scrims can be reused.
Cross Cooling
Like all True Blue ARRI lampheads, the 40 implements Cross Cooling and thus allows safe operation even at extreme tilt angles. The electronics housing is spaced apart from the actual lamp housing to keep temperatures down and prolong the lifetime of electronic components. It is easy to open and to maintain.
IP 23
For outdoor use the M40's IP23-rated weather resistance withstands even driven rain.
ARRI Head to Ballast Cable - 50' (15.2m)

This is an Arri 50' Head to Ballast Cable that connects the Arri Compact HMI 2.5K, 4K, Arrisun & Arri-X 40/25 HMI lights to their ballasts.

ARRI EB MAX 2.5/4K High-Speed Electronic Ballast with AFL, CCL, DMX & AutoScan (US)

Designed for ARRI True Blue, M-Series, and Compact/Theater lamp heads, the EB MAX 2.5/4K High-Speed Electronic Ballast will safely power these fixtures while also providing numerous advanced performance features. It offers AutoScan for optimizing light quality, even when working at frequencies up to 1200 Hz. Other built-in features include an Active Line Filter and Compensation of Cable Losses, ensuring that light quality is consistent and the power supplied is appropriate, even over longer distances. DMX control from a console is provided as well, allowing for remote dimming from 50 to 100%, on/off controls, and the ability to adjust the operation mode and frequency. Additionally, the ballast has a low-frequency setting for minimizing noise and an array of LED status indicators for quickly viewing settings.

ARRI 4-Leaf Barndoors for True Blue D40/ST5, M-Series M40 & Compact 4000 Fresnels

The 4-Leaf Barndoors for True Blue D40/ST5, M-Series M40 & Compact 4000 Fresnels attach to the front of the fixture and restrict light from areas of a set. ARRI barndoors are heat resistant and rotatable.
