This 18,000 total watt ARRI Daylight 12KW/18KW HMI Fresnel Light Kit put together by B&H consists of one daylight 12K/18K head, a 12K/18K electronic ballast, a 50' cable, a filter frame, and a 4-leaf barndoor set.
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 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 at full spot.
It will throw 167 footcandles, 101 feet in diameter from the same distance at full flood.
The 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.
