Dual accessory mounts, advanced connectivity options, and a robust IP65-rated dust and weather-resistant construction ensure reliability in challenging filming conditions. The Aputure Electro Storm XT26 Bi-Color LED Monolight (No AC Plug) also features innovative electronic modifiers that enhance optimization and offer motorized control. Notably, this XT26 version is sold without an AC plug.

Chipsets and Color Accuracy

In addition to a 2600W output that rivals industry-standard 12,000W tungsten Fresnels and 4000W HMIs, the light is equipped with a powerful chipset that delivers accurate color reproduction across its tunable CCT range from 2700 to 6500K. It offers a CRI and TLCI of 98 and SSI of daylight and tungsten at 74 and 85, respectively. The latest-generation dynamic white chipset also introduces green-magenta color correction, allowing for precise adjustments between 3000 to 6000K. The XT26 outputs up to 65,200 lux at a distance of 9.8' using its included 35° reflector.

Professional Connectivity

Designed with professionals in mind, the XT26 offers advanced connectivity options, including Sidus Link app control, LumenRadio CRMX, Art-Net & sACN via etherCON, and 16-bit DMX512. These features seamlessly integrate the fixture into existing lighting workflows, providing lighting technicians and programmers with complete control over its operation.

Expanded Mounting Options

Featuring dual accessory mounts, the XT26 offers both the universal Bowens Mount and the innovative electronic A-Mount compatibility. This unique combination makes it one of the most adaptable fixtures on the market, catering to a wide range of modifier options, such as the versatile Spotlight Max. The A-Mount, designed for heavy-duty modifiers, including the optional F14 Fresnel, guarantees stability, durability, and optimized color accuracy while supporting motorized focus control. The Aputure mount is also compatible with the optional 20 and 50° reflectors.

Advanced Liquid Cooling Technology

To effectively manage heat dissipation and maximize light output, the XT26 incorporates advanced liquid cooling technology. This innovative design guarantees that users can access the full potential of the fixture's light output while maintaining optimal performance.

Additional Benefits

The fixture comes with nine built-in lighting effects and max and constant output modes. 0.1 to 100% stepless dimming is available as well as PWM and high-speed flicker-free dimming modes. Adding to its versatility, it also supports battery operation via dual 48 VDC inputs. In terms of convenience, the XT26's included high-output control box features side and top-facing ports, and a control box handcart is also supplied for easy transportation. If needed, users can also benefit from an optional motorized yoke that allows for smooth remote operation.
