AKG&L acquires the new ARRI BABYMAX M18 HMI PAR

"Who's your daddy? The BABYMAX M18 has arrived.

Introducing the M18, first offspring of the award-winning ARRIMAX 18/12K. Based on the design principles of the ARRIMAX, the new M18 is an innovative lamphead that works with a new power class of lamp: the 1800W SE HMI. This lamp boasts 750 hours of average life and a Luminous Efficacy of 92 Lumens per Watt (L/W). The Color Rendering Index (Ra) is greater than 90 at 6000K (CCT).

Now the "Brightest HMI you can plug into the wall," the M18 is a lensless, open face lighting fixture that combines the desired light distribution from the optics of a PAR and a Fresnel fixture. The unique ARRIMAX reflector design creates diverging rays to produce a crisp shadow.

With a beam angle (HPA) of 20 to 60 degrees and a wide usable field angle, the M18 is designed to be both intense and efficient."
