High power rechargeable Li-Ion battery, with V-Mount mounting, for professional ENG film and video cameras requiring high power, lighting and other equipment. It is manufactured with a strong structure of double casing, anti-fall and water resistant. It consists of 24 cells of battery type 18650, reaching a capacity of 290Wh/20.1Ah. It allows to feed during approximately 11 hours the ENG cameras of 30W and approximately 3.5 hours an ARRI Alexa camera. The SWIT PB-R290S battery supports high loads, fast charging and display of digital power information, which is an ideal power solution for field applications.
The PB-R290S battery features an innovative dual-structure housing: internal protective housing and external shockproof housing with rubber covers. The new structure makes the battery very consistent, anti-shock, protects the battery from falls and is IP66 water/dust resistant.
With a capacity of 290Wh/20.1Ah, the PB-R290S battery has the highest admitted capacity for air transport. Manufactured with 24 cells of high capacity type 18650, it provides 290Wh/20.1Ah of capacity, which is the largest capacity on board an airplane.
The SWIT PB-R290S battery has a maximum constant output of 200W/16A, which makes it suitable for supplying sufficient power for film cameras. Normal Li-ion batteries offer 100W/8A outputs and are suitable for most ENG cameras, but Cinema cameras, such as ALEXA, require about 85W of high intensity which is too much charge for normal Li-ion batteries: they will quickly reduce their useful life. On the other hand, if there is a monitor or lighting connected simultaneously, the total power will be greater than 100W, normal batteries cannot deliver that power. Using the high-powered PB-R290S battery, you can get MAX 200W/16A constant current output, for high-power cameras, lighting and other equipment, will not reduce battery life during use.
The PB-R290S battery supports 6A fast charge using SWIT S-3812S charger, to save more than 50% charging time. The 290Wh PB-R290S battery can be charged to 80% in 3.4 hours and reach a full charge in 4.8 hours.
The SWIT PB-R290S has innovative 8 LED power indicators. When disconnected or charging, the LEDs will indicate the percentage of the current capacity and when the battery is being discharged, the LEDs will show the remaining operating time at current consumption, at 15-minute intervals. The battery provides an intelligent digital information chip that is compatible with the camera's information system SONY and RED, it can display the remaining minutes in the camera's viewfinder.
The PB-R290S battery has a DC output D-tap connector at the top of the battery, to power other equipment simultaneously. The maximum output current of D-tap is 10A.
The battery has multiple safety protections. It has an MCU to measure and record data in real time, and will cut power when it detects over-voltage, under-voltage, over-current, high or low temperature. In addition, the battery housing is made of ABS material, with optimized design and non-slip for safe handling.
