Max Technology: new ARRI M40 daylight fixture

Posted on Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

At IBC this year, ARRI unveiled a new fixture from its award-winning Max series, narrowing the gap between the 1800 W M18 and the 18 kW ARRIMAX. Sporting ARRI’s unique, patented Max Technology, the M40 is a lensless system that combines the advantages of a Fresnel and a PAR fixture. The unit is open face and thus very bright, around 30% brighter in Spot, but focusable from 19-60°, producing a crisp, clear shadow. By eliminating the need for spread lenses, the M40 speeds up workflows on set and reduces the risk of lost production time because of glass breakage.

The M40 implements the True Blue features ARRI customers have come to value in recent years. Two strong disc brakes keep the lamphead firmly in place even if heavy accessories are used, while the electronics housing is spaced apart from the actual lamp housing to keep temperatures down and prolong the lifetime of components. The units are ruggedized and IP23 certified to withstand rough location handling and weather.
