L1.37489.B M90-1


More light, less work

The M90 closes the gap between M40 and ARRIMAX 18/12, which sits almost exactly in the middle between the two. The unit is focusable from 15° up to 49° just by turning the focus knob, producing 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 the 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 lens)
  • As small and lightweight as a 6 kW PAR
  • Can also be used with 6,000 W (120 V nominal) lamps and ballasts
  • Tilt locks on both sides hold any heavy accessories
  • Easy maintenance
  • Weather resistant IP23
  • Suitable for high frame rate images
