More SWIT news from NAB 2015.

The second installment of our NAB 2015 SWIT news. We've seen the monitors, now it's time for the batteries.

SWIT announced a new line of batteries at NAB - Heavy Duty Li-ion Battery

Introduction

  • 1.5m drop off resistance. 
    The new series of batteries have an anti-shock structure, protected by an advanced cell cage inside and a rubber cover outside, which protects the battery even when dropped at 1.5 metres high.
  • High load output.
    The battery pack has high load cells, that provide up to 2000W/ 16A of constant power output, capable of powering more high draw equipment simultaneously (especially the CINE cameras). This gives the battery a longer life.
  • Fast Charging
    The battery supports MAX 6A charging current, halving the charging time. For example the 160Wh level battery can be charged to full within 2.5 hours, (with new SWIT charger S-3812A/S) and the high quality contact pins ensure the reliable and safe condition under 6A current.
  • Power info display
    The new power check LED tells not only the remaining power percentage, but also the remaining running time on the equipment (accurate to 15 minutes). Meanwhile, the battery pack features intelligent digital info chips that are compatible with SONY camera info system and can display remaining minutes in the viewfinder.
  • Link power
    To prolong the running time, the new battery supports link connection to each other and comply's with IATA regulations when separately boarding an airplane. The link connection also features stable 3-stud structure, auto-lock and easy press-to-release. (Only with S-8420S & S-8440S)
