PAG Launches PowerHub for its PAGlink Gold Mount Battery System

PAG America has announced the PAGLink Powerhub, a compact, lightweight, intelligent device for providing outputs for 12-volt camera accessories.

PAG said the hub is designed to be used between the two PAGlink Gold Mount batteries, powering the camera and accessories simultaneously, while maintaining the hot-swap capability. It is compatible with both the PL94 and PL150 PAGlink Gold Mount models.

The PowerHub features five ports that accept interchangeable D-Tap, Lemo (2-pin), Hirose (4-pin) and USB connectors. Four D-Taps and a USB (5V, 1A) are issued as standard.

The low-profile PowerHub is made from a durable, lightweight ABS and occupies a half inch deep gap between two PAGlink batteries.

“The inexpensive and versatile PowerHub is user-configurable and so much smarter than just D-Taps in a battery,” said Bob Carr, PAG America’s sales director.

PAG said the Powerhub will ship to coincide with the 2017 NAB Show. No price was announced.
