Core SWX Introduces New Power Products at NAB

Core SWX has announced Core HLX mount plates for high-end cine cameras in mind such the Arri Alexa LF, Mini-LF, RED Ranger and Sony Venice.

Core said the HLX Power Management Control (PMC) mount plates can be used in conjunction with the new Cube24, a power supply for the influx of high voltage accepting cinema cameras in the market.

The NPF flat pack was specifically designed to be form fitting on SmallHD's five-inch Focus monitor. The Voltbridge charger provides yet another robust charging option.

The HLX PMC mount plates take power management concerns away from the camera, and provide a “hot swappable” platform between on-board and block battery/AC mains, while providing transparency to the AC on set.

The on-board LCD monitors input percentage/voltage of the power sources, as well as current draw of the entire camera setup. The mount plate system uses a standard two-pin Fischer connector for the power input on the plates.

Complementing the HLX mount plates is the Cube24, a 200w AC to DC 24volt power supply. The lightweight, all aluminum Cube24 is capable of powering the most power hungry cameras through the two three-pin XLR outputs providing up to 200w combined.

The fan-less power supply has internal protections to protect the device against accidental misuse, shutting down and the resetting to operational status. AC input accepts 100-240VAC, making it useable worldwide.

Core’s NPF Flatpack answers the call of the content creation sector of the market who want a low profile, high power NPF L-Series type battery pack. The 7800mAh pack provides the highest capacity offered in an L-Series form, while adding a four-stage LED gauge and a DC power input, accepting 10-17vdc.

Fleet charger

The FLEETQ4Ai and Q4Si chargers are a robust, travel version of the ever popular FLEET Micro Voltbridge chargers. The new economical charger models are without front LCD and touch panel, yet still offer full battery fleet management control and diagnostic capabilities via the Voltbridge app (available on iTunes and Playstore).
