PAG will feature three new PAGlink Gold Mount accessories at the NAB Show in Las Vegas
At NAB 2017, PAG, one of the broadcast industry’s longest established global providers of innovative portable power solutions, will launch its new travel charger, powerhub and battery reader for the PAGlink Gold Mount System of compact, lightweight, intelligent linking batteries.
The new PAGlink Micro Charger is an ultra-compact travel charger. It features a single charging shoe that clips onto Gold Mount battery contacts. The lightweight charger is compatible with both the PL94 and PL150 PAGlink Gold Mount batteries. PAGlink offers unique technology that allows up to 8 batteries to be linked for simultaneous charging. Three 94Wh PAGlink Gold Mount batteries can be charged overnight (11 hours), without user-intervention. The Micro Charger can also be used to charge Anton Bauer Li-Ion batteries sequentially.
PAG claims its new charger is the broadcast industry’s smallest, most economic, multi-battery charger.
PAG will also debut its new PAG Gold Mount Battery Reader. Managing your PAGlink Gold Mount batteries efficiently using data stored in their processor,
can be achieved easily using this new Reader. The compact device can be clipped onto the battery contacts to reveal useful information such as the number of cycles, the date of manufacture, capacity in Ah, software version, serial number and more.
The Reader is compatible with both the PL94 and PL150 PAGlink Gold Mount batteries, as well some Anton Bauer models. You can now track the usage of your inventory, large or small, and manage it more efficiently, ensuring that all your batteries are used equally. The Reader can also be used to put PAGlink batteries into sleep mode for transport or storage.
“This inexpensive accessory is a must for broadcasters and rental houses”, says PAG’s UK Sales Director Nigel Gardiner.
Last but not least, PAG will introduce the new PAGlink PowerHub which provides all the outputs you need for your 12V camera accessories. The Hub is designed to be used between the two PAGlink Gold Mount batteries, powering your camera and accessories simultaneously, while maintaining the hot-swap capability. It is compatible with both the PL94 and PL150 PAGlink Gold Mount models.
The PowerHub features 5 ports that accept interchangeable D-Tap, Lemo (2-pin), Hirose (4-pin) and USB connectors. Four D-Taps and a USB (5V 1A) are issued as standard. The low-profile PowerHub is manufactured from a durable, lightweight ABS and occupies a half inch deep gap between two PAGlink batteries.
“The inexpensive and versatile PowerHub is user-configurable and so much smarter than just D-Taps in a battery”, says PAG America’s Sales Director Bob Carr.
The Gold mount Battery reader is already available and both the Microcharger and the Powerhub will be shipping in the second quarter of 2017.
PAG products are distributed by Carr Distribution Group in the USA and they will be presented at the Aspectra booth #C9518 during this years NAB Show in Las Vegas.
