Core SWX new power solutions

NPF SHD in use

Core SWX, has announced new power solutions prior to NAB 2019. The four new products are:

Core HLX mount plates

The Core HLX mount plates were designed for high-end cine cameras such the ARRI ALEXA LF, ARRI ALEXA Mini-LF, RED Ranger and Sony VENICE.

The HLX Power Management Control mount plates take power management concerns away from the camera, and provide a “hot-swappable” platform between oonboard and block battery/AC mains, while providing transparency to the AC on set. The mount plate system uses a standard 2-pin Fischer connector for the power input on the plates, simplifying the array of cables production companies and rental companies need to inventory, while addressing many different camera makes.

The on-board LCD monitors input percentage/voltage of the power sources, as well as current draw of the entire camera setup.

The HLX Power Management Control mount plates are available for on-board mounting to ARRI cameras, rail mounting for the Arri Mini LF and Alexa, and gold mount and v-mount backing for the RED Ranger and Sony Venice.

  • HLX-PMC-G for ARRI
  • HLX-PMC-V for ARRI
  • HLX-RR-G for RED Ranger
  • HLX-RR-V for RED Ranger
  • HLX-VEN-VP for Sony VENICE

The HLX Power Management Control (PMC) mount plates can be used in conjunction with the new Cube24, to create an ideal power supply for the growing number of high voltage cinema cameras. 

Mount input: DC 11-34v
Fischer 2-pin DC input: DC 19.5-34v
Output for Camera/P-Taps: DC 11-34v/11-17v Unregulated

Cube24

Core SWX new power solutions

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 3-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.

NPF flat pack

Core SWX new power solutions

The NPF flat pack was specifically designed to be form fitting on SmallHD’s 5-inch Focus monitor. 

Core SWX new power solutions

The NPF-SHD is a near 60wh L-series type lithium ion battery pack design to provide a lower profile powering solution for the SmallHD Focus monitors.

It was designed to allow for full rotation of the monitor on the tilt arm while not blocking the air vents on the back of the monitor.

  • Capacity: 7.2v, 7800mah
  • Size: 5.2″ x 3.1″ x 1.3″
  • Weight: 0.78 lbs

The battery pack features a 4-stage LED gauge along with a 7-17v DC input which allows you to powertap into the battery pack on larger camera rig configurations and route regulated power into the monitor. Should the DC input power be interrupted, the pack will seamlessly discharge from the battery cells. While the DC input allows for the added flexibility of charging the pack, the pack will charge from most L-series chargers as well.

Voltbridge charger

Core SWX new power solutions

Rounding out the new offerings are two new additions to the Voltbridge charger lineup.  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).
