NewsDIONIC HD Offers Longer Cycle Life, Updated RealTime DisplayLast Updated: November 2, 2012 2:40 am GMT
(Shelton, CT--November 2, 2012) To continue meeting the growing power needs of professionals utilizing the latest digital cinema cameras, Anton/Bauer® has introduced the new DIONIC® HD battery. This is the newest lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) battery from Anton/Bauer, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company, and a premier global provider of batteries, chargers, lighting and other mobile power systems for the professional broadcast, video and film industries. Part of the company’s Logic Series® batteries, the DIONIC HD powers high-current applications in a lightweight and robust package, making it ideal for digital cinema cameras such as the Sony F65, RED cameras, ARRI Alexa, the Vision Research Phantom series and more.
Delivering up to 10 amps of power, the DIONIC HD is a 183Wh battery featuring special-application Li-Ion cell technology. It incorporates the company’s latest software architecture and improved LCD for superior safety and reliability in the most extreme environmental conditions. Weighing 40 percent less than a NiCad or NiMH battery, the DIONIC HD has 25 percent more capacity and will run a 30-watt camera, monitors and multiple accessories for more than six hours.
“The introduction of the DIONIC HD furthers Anton/Bauer’s commitment to working closely with key cell manufacturers to provide the highest cell quality to our customers,” says Shin Minowa, vice president of product development, Anton/Bauer. “Designed from the most innovative lithium-Ion cell technologies, the new DIONIC HD is generation six. It provides unrivaled capacities and a longer cycle life, with an extended warranty of three years.”
The new DIONIC HD also includes the company’s new enhanced RealTime® display. Simple and easy to understand, the RealTime display indicates both fuel gauge and remaining run-time data simultaneously, without requiring setup. The display incorporates readouts of hours, minutes and remaining capacity, making battery change decisions quick and easy. What’s more, its motion-detection feature incorporates a sleep mode setting that reduces battery self-discharge, allowing for extended periods of storage with minimal capacity loss. The battery can be “awakened” by the built-in motion sensor. These patented features offer confidence for the camera operator.
