The M18 combines MAX Technology, True Blue features and a new 1800 W lamp. The result is an exciting new class of HMI that can be powered from most domestic sockets. It is as small as a 1200 W PAR lamphead but with 70% higher light output. Adjustable from 20° to 60° beam angle, the M18 can also be used with 1200 W lamps.
