Sparmax ARISM Viz Compressor
Intuitive Design – Universal DC Motor – Quiet Operation
The ARISM Viz incorporates two new innovative designs from Sparmax, the Smart-Stop (see info below), and the Silver Bullet Plus. When used in conjunction with each other the result is a compact, ergonomic, and intuitive compressor for airbrushing.
The name VIZ was chosen from the similar-sounding ‘Vis’, which has many meanings in Latin, including ‘Nature’, ‘Efficiency’, and ‘Strength’. It is also encompassed in the word ‘visual’, which we felt was fitting, since when it came to airbrushing the artist was bringing their vision to life on canvas for all to see.
ARISM Viz has a DC motor for universal usage (100-240V) and coupled with its small size it is ideal for travel. Additionally, it is designed to draw less power than comparable AC compressors and is also quieter.
As an optional accessory, the ARISM Viz can also be run with standard Sparmax Battery Packs. A combined set including the Compressor, Battery and Charger is also available.
An innovative and intuitive feature designed to enhance the users airbrushing experience, the Smart-Stop pauses the compressor when the airbrush is placed into its holder and restarts it when it is taken off again. The first of its kind in the market, it is compatible with pressure regulators and bleed valves. Using the Smart-Stop, the working pressure before the compressor is paused will be maintained upon restart; this is comparable to the pressure stabilizing effect of an air tank, minus the space taken up! Additionally, the Smart-Stop eliminates the frequent on/off condition which can occur when using a traditional auto stop + pressure regulator set up without an air tank.
Users with a single action or dual action airbrush will also have the same experience when using the Smart-Stop.
