Designed with power and durability for film and television professionals, the Electro Storm XT26 Bi-Color LED Monolight from Aputure is a bi-color point-source fixture offering 2600W of dynamic white CCT from 2700 to 6500K and tint control, dual accessory mounts, advanced connectivity options, and a rugged IP65 dust and weather resistant construction to withstand demanding filming environments. The XT26's innovative electronic modifiers provide enhanced optimization and motorized control. This XT26 version comes with a 60A Bates connector.

Available Power Options
Depending on the territory in the world, the XT26 can be powered from household circuits, but know that it requires more than 110V, 30A to operate at full power. Highly known in the cinema lighting industry, the included 60A Bates connector will allow the XT26 to run at its full potential.
Chipsets and Color Accuracy
In addition to a 2600W output that rivals industry-standard 12,000W tungsten Fresnels and 4000W HMIs, the light is equipped with a powerful chipset that delivers accurate color reproduction across its tunable CCT range from 2700 to 6500K. It offers a CRI and TLCI of 98 and SSI of daylight and tungsten at 74 and 85, respectively. The latest-generation dynamic white chipset also introduces green-magenta color correction, allowing for precise adjustments between 3000 to 6000K. The XT26 outputs up to 65,200 lux at a distance of 9.8' using its included 35° reflector.
Professional Connectivity
Designed with professionals in mind, the XT26 offers advanced connectivity options, including Sidus Link app control, LumenRadio CRMX, Art-Net & sACN via etherCON, and 16-bit DMX512. These features seamlessly integrate the fixture into existing lighting workflows, providing lighting technicians and programmers with complete control over its operation.
Expanded Mounting
Featuring dual accessory mounts, the XT26 offers both the universal Bowens Mount and the innovative electronic A-Mount compatibility. This unique combination makes it one of the most adaptable fixtures on the market, catering to a wide range of modifier options, such as the versatile Spotlight Max. The A-Mount, designed for heavy-duty modifiers, including the optional F14 Fresnel, guarantees stability, durability, and optimized color accuracy while supporting motorized focus control. The Aputure mount is also compatible with the optional 20 and 50° reflectors.
Advanced Liquid Cooling Technology
To effectively manage heat dissipation and maximize light output, the XT26 incorporates advanced liquid cooling technology. This innovative design guarantees that users can access the full potential of the fixture's light output while maintaining optimal performance.
Additional Benefits
The fixture comes with nine built-in lighting effects and max and constant output modes. 0.1 to 100% stepless dimming is available as well as PWM and high-speed flicker-free dimming modes. Adding to its versatility, it also supports battery operation via dual 48 VDC inputs. In terms of convenience, the XT26's included high-output control box features side and top-facing ports, and a control box handcart is also supplied for easy transportation. If needed, users can also benefit from an optional motorized yoke that allows for smooth remote operation.

How many amps does this light pull and what type of connector is on the power supply?
Asked by: Jeffrey
The plug type of the Aputure Electro Storm XT26 Bi-Color LED Monolight (US Plug) BH #APEXT26US is not specified. It is a 3500w light. On 100v power that is about 35Amps. The light is not suitable for normal US household power.
