Anton/Bauer Announces Next Gen VCLX Free Standing Battery
VCLX NM2 delivers consistent high quality feature length production power for cinematic productions.
The new VCLX NM2 delivers 600Wh of consistent power at 14.4V, 28V and 48V to drive high-power draw equipment at peak performance on cinematic productions.
With 14.4V, 28V and 48V output, VCLX NM2 is the perfect all-in-one battery solution for power hungry cameras, monitors, lights, and other equipment. One XLR3 and two XLR4 connectors provide dual simultaneous high current output delivering consistent 24A current at 14.4V, 16A at 28V or 12A at 48V from the 600Wh NiMH battery.
Weighing in at 29.35 lbs (13.3 kg), the new lighter battery is built to withstand the rigors of set life, grip trucks and shipping cases. The VCLX NM2 is engineered from tough anodized aluminum with over-molded end caps and handle grip. Efficient thermal design with passive cooling means no fan noise on set, and the sealed case is water-resistant up to 8.5” (21.6cm).
Real-time onboard diagnostics via the 2.4” color LCD screen means the battery and equipment can be monitored to ensure peak performance. VCLX smart technology calculates everything being powered via XLR3, XLR4 or USB for maximum power efficiency.
New fleet management allows full command of entire battery fleets. The VCLX NM2 Sends status information including capacity, cycle count, temperature, and time-stamped reports directly from the battery via built-in Wi-Fi or information can be downloaded to USB storage. Owners can save time spent manually testing batteries for healthy inventory with more uptime.
