Endura CUE is the new battery range from IDX which aims to provide all the benefits broadcasters need, at a lower cost. The new range is made up of three models: the Endura CUE-D75, Endura CUE-D95 and Endura CUE-D150.
All CUE batteries have 1x (D-Tap) DC output connector allowing peripherals to be powered direct. The V-Mount connection is a worldwide standard fitting. A discharge cut-off prevents the batteries being damaged by products without a voltage sensing shut-down mechanism.
To achieve the CUE range’s cost-saving benefits, IDX has worked with Sanyo, supplier of Lithium-Ion cells. Improvements in design and the manufacturing process have been combined with developments in microchip technology. These innovations have helped reduce the component count and improved reliability.
Additional features of the CUE range include battery circuit protection, which guards against the common causes of battery misuse.
Using a P-V2 or a P-VS2 adaptor plate (available separately from IDX) the CUE batteries can be used without a standard V-mount connection if required. The range is, of course, fully compatible with all Endura V-Mount chargers and accessories.
