Anton/Bauer Shows Off Dionic HCX Battery, Tandem 150 Power System at Cine Gear Expo
Anton/Bauer, a brand of The Vitec Group, showcased its Dionic HCX high-current battery and Tandem 150 modular power system at Cine Gear Expo 2010.
The Dionic HCX has a 120-WHr capacity, a built-in motion-detection sensor, and a “deep-sleep” capability, which increases battery life by mitigating lithium-ion battery self-discharge when the battery is not in use. Weighing just 2.4 lb., it can withstand high instantaneous current draws. In addition, an enhanced LCD RealTime fuel gauge indicates up to nine hours of run-time when the battery is used under low-power load conditions.
The 2½-lb., fully automatic Tandem 150 modular power system functions by separating the Gold Mount device from the power supply, allowing a user to simultaneously charge a battery and power a camera. Ideal for remote-location shoots, it features a solar panel to charge any battery in the Anton/Bauer product line via available sunlight. It can also rely on a car’s dependable vehicle power outlet.
