IDX DUO-C190 High Capacity High Load Battery Now Shipping

News Image
Eagerly awaited by users of cameras needing longer run times or those with high current needs, the DUO-C190 addresses both requirements and arrived with IDX dealerships in May.

The DUO-C190, weighing around 1,000g, is extremely lightweight and compact for a battery with a capacity of 185Wh. It supports a continuous load of 11A/120W, ideal for modern high resolution cameras with their demanding power requirements or for users of larger LED lights.

It features a new D-Tap advanced socket with conventional D.C. output, but in addition it will permit controlled charging from a small lightweight travel charger that IDX will introduce in the autumn. In addition, there is a second D-Tap D.C. output and a USB power output with a current rating of 2.3 amps rather than the 1.0 amp of earlier DUO batteries.

Quality is assured through the partnership with Panasonic Sanyo who work closely with IDX in the design of the battery protection circuitry and supply the Lithium Ion cells best suited to demanding broadcast applications.

Continuing the trend seen in the CUE battery range, the Duo Compact is designed to meet stringent PSE safety regulations. Currently Japanese specific but likely to be adopted worldwide, the regulations demand that individual Lithium Ion cells are isolated from each other within the battery in a honeycomb like structure.

IDX is the world's leading manufacturer and supplier of batteries, chargers, LED on-board lights, wireless HD video transmission, power supplies and mounting accessories to the broadcast, professional video, audio and portable electronic industry. Established in 1989, IDX employs staff across locations in Japan, USA and Europe to serve a worldwide customer base.
