At NAB, PAG will bring a complement of new lightweight and compact accessories for its PAGlink battery system, enabling linked charging from an ultra-mini form-factor and allowing users to easily access battery data.
PAG's PAGlink is available in Gold Mount and V-Mount formats. It comprises compact, lightweight, intelligent linking batteries, available in 94 or 150 watt hour capacities. When linked, the battery capacities are combined and discharged together to allow a current draw of 12 amps. Sharing the current demand prolongs overall battery life and provides a better return on investment.
PAG’s PAGlink PowerHub is a lightweight, ultra-compact and user-configurable camera accessory power device that eliminates the need to build D-Taps into a battery. Instead, the unit provides the outputs required to power camera set-ups that feature multiple 12 volt accessories such as a camera light, monitor, audio and transmission devices.
Designed for use between two PAGlink Gold Mount batteries, while only increasing the depth of the battery stack by 0.4-inch, PowerHub maintains hot-swap capability while keeping accessories powered-up.
Four D-Tap connectors are supplied as standard and a USB connector (5V, 1A) is included to power smartphones or similar low-voltage devices. These connectors are interchangeable with Lemo (2-pin), Hirose (4-pin) or 2.1mm (PP90) connectors, available as options, and can be used in any of the five ports. Connectors can be configured in any combination to meet any user requirement.
PAG Micro Charger
The PAGlink Micro Charger, the world’s smallest (2.8 x 2.5 x 1.3-inches), single position multi-battery charging kit, serves as a light-traveling linked-charging companion for PAGlink batteries.
