Anton Bauer Expands Dionic Sequence With B-Mount Choices

Anton Bauer is increasing their Dionic 26V sequence, with new B-Mount choices of two batteries, the Dionic 26V 98Wh and the Dionic 26V 240Wh. They’re additionally including a brand new quad-charger for the brand new B-Mount batteries. The batteries, the charger, in addition to a variety of battery plates have been developed in cooperation with ARRI to be used with demanding cameras, such because the not too long ago launched ARRI Alexa 35. Let’s have a more in-depth look.

A fast recap: the transfer to B-Mount as the brand new trade commonplace has been occurring for some time. We now have reported on this earlier than. The primary causes for this have been, that V-Mount and Gold-Mount have been constructed across the former trade commonplace of 12V, whereas B-Mount is ready to help each 12V and 24V workloads. Aside from that, B-Mount additionally makes use of an open protocol, developed by Bebop and endorsed by ARRI as an open trade commonplace (please confer with our ARRI Tech Speak).

Retaining in thoughts that larger workloads additionally imply bodily greater batteries, B-Mount has been developed to deal with larger weights securely. Whereas there have been workaround for V-Mount and Gold-Mount to broaden their capabilities, B-Mount is the devoted answer.

The New Dionic 26V Sequence B-Mount Batteries

The growth of the Dionic 26V Sequence for B-Mount is available in two sizes: 98Wh and 240Wh. Each have the next options:

  • 20A max draw
  • 12A steady draw
  • Over 300W constantly out there
  • Use B-Mount protocol for communication with digicam gear
  • Safety towards discharge, overvoltage, quick circuit and thermal
  • Compliant to UN38.3 IATA lithium-ion battery rules
  • Fast charging

The Dionic 26V Sequence’ polycarbonate mix development presents excessive resistance to warmth, humidity and chilly. Each batteries are rated to function between -4°F to 140°F / -20°C to 60°C. The native B-Mount development, reduces the necessity for devoted circuitry, in flip decreasing the burden and warmth manufacturing of the batteries. They arrive in at 2.05lbs / 0.93kg and 3lbs. / 1.36kg respectively. With compact sizes of three.9” x 5.2” x 2.8” / 9.9cm x 13.1cm x 7.1cm for the 98Wh and three.4” x 3.9” x 5.2” / 9.9cm x 13.1cm x 8.7cm for the 240Wh model, they’re additionally fairly compact for the output supplied.

Quad-Charger for Fast Charging

Each Dionic 26V Sequence batteries may be hot-swapped and help speedy charging. Because of this the smaller 98Wh model will cost in ~1.5 hours to 100%, whereas the 240Wh will cost in ~3.5 hours to 100%. David Pasko, engineering supervisor at Anton Bauer additionally stresses that the “native” 26V development additionally will increase the variety of cost cycles per battery lifetime, over “regulated” or “dual-voltage” development.

The brand new quad charger has a low profile design for stackability and higher storage choices. It additionally robotically detects which battery nonetheless has the strongest cost and thus prioritizes the charging course of, for the quickest potential outcome. It is usually WiFi-ready, which is able to make it a well-liked alternative for renting homes, and usable in ENG/EFP/OB autos.

For extra info on the Dionic 26V Sequence, head on over to Anton Bauer.
