Core SWX Introduces the Helix Series Batteries

Core SWX said Helix encompasses all the features of Hypercore, with the added function of dual 14 volt/28 volt simultaneous voltage output, answering the call for better designed and performing, on-board high voltage solutions.

Leveraging a proprietary, patent pending technology, Core SWX said Helix is ultra-efficient, providing nearly lossless power transmission at a 99 percent efficiency rate to high voltage operating equipment.

Helix's design allows it to output up to 33.6 volts, within the top range of high voltage acceptance. It draws less current, creating less heat and extending both operational runtime and product longevity.

Helix's infrastructure allows the pack to function as a standard V-mount or Gold mount 14 volt pack in all applications without the fear of accidentally transmitting high voltage. Along with standard powering applications, Helix charges on all standard V-mount and Gold mount Lithium-Ion equipment, including Anton/Bauer, allowing it to integrate into a current fleet of battery packs.

Core has produced a series of mount plate offerings for high voltage accepting equipment. To unlock the high voltage output function, couple Helix with the mount plate.

Once mounted, the battery pack will transmit the higher voltage efficiently to the camera, yet still have access to 14 volt for other production accessories.
