Location lighting power block12 September 2016
The new High Current HC400 power block handles electrical loads of up to 25A. Its lightweight design provides 400 Watt hours (Whr), making it useful for high power lighting systems. For 28v or 30v, lighting systems, like KinoFlo’s new Select 30 or Creamsource Doppio, the HC400 can power those lights directly.
For 48v lighting systems, like the new Arri SkyPanel S60, multiple HC400 units can be coupled with BlockBattery’s new R48-500 adaptor, which converts the HC400 power to provide 48v regulated output. It scales battery system capacity up to 1600Whr with up to four HC400 blocks.
This could run a SkyPanel S60 for three to four hours at the light’s maximum output.
For even higher power lighting systems that need portable AC for field use, multiple HC400 units can be coupled with BlockBattery’s new 1500-INV power inverter. This converts the HC400 power to provide up to 1500W of 120v AC in a scalable capacity from 400 to 1600Whr.
Greg Prentiss, director of sales and marketing, BlockBattery, said: “The new HC400 block battery along with the new R48-500 and 1500-INV fill a significant void in field power of high current lighting systems.”
