ARRIMAX 18/12, which lies nearly exactly in the middle of the two, and M40 are separated by the M90. By simply twisting the focus knob, the device can be focused from 15° to 49°, creating an astonishingly flat light field and a sharp, distinct shadow. The workflow on set is sped up by the removal of spread lenses.
The 6,000 W and 9,000 W lamps are fairly comparable in size, allowing the MAX Technology reflector to work flawlessly at both wattages. A very small design that is nearly the same size as the ARRISUN 60 has been created thanks to the improved housing and cooling concept.
The state-of-the-art daylight system for high-quality photos at fast frame rates is represented by the latest electronic super-fast ballast, EB 6/9 HS with AutoScan. All EB 6/9 kW ballasts have a CCL module (Compensation of Cable Losses) installed, allowing full power to be maintained all the way to the light even when extremely long cables are being utilized. This describes a high light output that is constant regardless of cable length.
The accompanying EB 6/9 kW ballast utilizes the housing from the current EB 6000 Baby, which makes the 6 kW Head-to-Ballast cables compatible. The entire system is highly efficient and delivers a light output that is comparable to a conventional 12 kW PAR (with lens) within the confines of a 6 kW PAR system – it punches above its weight!
Arri M90 Description
The M90 adds a new power class of 9000 W to bridge the gap between the M40/25 and the ARRIMAX 18/12. The open-faced, extremely bright unit may be focused from 16° to 49°, generating a strikingly equal light field and a clean, distinct shadow. A new 9,000 W lamp for the M90 was created by ARRI technology partner Osram. It is stable at 1,000 Hz and is almost as compact as the 6,000 W bulb that can also be utilized. Due to this, ARRI was able to create the M90 with housing that was a little larger than the ARRISUN 60.
The EB 6/9 kW, which comes in regular and high-speed versions, is a new ballast that goes along with the M90. It has the power-saving ALF and CCL (Compensation for Cable Loss) technology, just like other current ballasts from ARRI (Active Line Filter). The DMX-compatible EB 6/9 kW is the same size as ARRI’s current EB 6000 Baby ballast.
Ballasts for ARR High Speed
In order to meet the demands of contemporary digital high-speed photography, ARRI is happy to present a new generation of 1000 Hz High-Speed Ballasts. With the new 1000Hz High-Speed ballasts, it is simple to produce flicker-free images of excellent clarity even at frame rates of 500–1000 fps, and frequently even higher. With just a single HMI daylight source, this revolutionary technology may safely shoot commercials, sporting events, industrial applications, ballistics tests, or material testing thanks to the lamp’s increased 1000Hz square wave current.
