Key Highlights
  • HMI Head + Ballast + Barndoor
  • High speed ballast with Autoscan
  • Lens-less MAX technology


ARRI M90 HMI System High Speed Light with Barndoor closes the gap between your ARRI M40 HMI High Speed System (ALF & DMX) and your ARRIMAX 18/12. This light fixture is focusable from 15° up to 49° just by turning the focus knob. It produces a remarkably even light field and a crisp, clear shadow. The elimination of spread lenses speeds up the workflow on set. The 9,000 W lamp is very similar in size to the 6,000 W lamp, which makes the MAX Technology reflector function perfectly at both wattages. The superior housing and cooling concept have made a very compact design close to the dimensions of your ARRISUN 60.

Together with the latest electronic high speed ballast, EB 6/9 HS with AutoScan, this combination represents the state of the art Daylight system for high quality images at high frame rates. All EB 6/9 kW ballasts are equipped with CCL module (Compensation of Cable Losses) enabling full power is maintained all the way to the lamp even when very long cables are used. This means uniformly high light output independent from cable length. Since the accompanying EB 6/9 kW ballast uses the housing of the current EB 6000 Baby, the 6 kW Head-to-Ballast cables are compatible and the whole system is highly efficient and delivers a light output close to a traditional 12 kW PAR (with lens) within the dimensions of a 6 kW PAR system – it punches above its weight.


  • Lens-less MAX Technology
  • Light output matches a 12 kW PAR with a lens
  • Small and lightweight as a 5 kW PAR fixture
  • Use with 6000W (120 V nominal) lamps and ballasts
  • Suitable for high frame rate images
  • Tilt locks on both sides hold your heavy accessories
  • Weather resistant IP23
  • Easy maintenance
