Core SWX RED KOMODO VMT Plate

core kvm 1

CoreSWX has announced their new VMT Plate for the RED KOMODO that converts the dual BP mount to a V-mount. A gold-mount version is also in the works.

KFB CXV KOMU 500x500 3 1

The battery plate has passed RED’s third-party accessory program which means that it has been tested by RED’s engineering team for compatibility.

The CXV-KOMU is a BP to v-mount plate direct mount specifically designed for the RED Komodo camera, allowing use of 14.4V V-Mount batteries and leaving the camera’s DC input available for AC power and battery hot-swap.

KOMODO PROFILE

When used with “smart” batteries that pass SMBUS data like Core SWX batteries, the camera will read battery percentage and runtime, providing accurate remaining battery capacity info. It’s equipped with 3 DC output ports: P-Tap, USB, and 2pin Lemo.

The plate also has a reinforced V-Mount locking mechanism, making it more durable and robust. You can see a knock test by Jason Diamond below.

Pricing & Availability

The CXV-KOMU retails for $199 USD and is set to ship from mid-October.

It is also available in a bundle with two Nano V98 batteries for $689 USD.

Core SWX also has a few RED KOMODO specific cables available on their website.
