IDX Broadens Its Battery Range

News Image
Across three main display areas, IDX continued to demonstrate why it is the biggest supplier of battery solutions to the broadcast industry.

Ten V-lock battery products were shown; offering a mix of features to ensure the user got the right battery for their application without compromise.

Then in a novel feature, within a bubble tube, the evolution of the Powerlink feature was shown from 2000 to 2017. Powerlink is an IDX invention that allows users to double up on available capacity; stacking a second battery at the rear of a camera or other piece of equipment.

Another innovation from IDX is the D-Tap Advanced which features on their latest DUO Compact battery models. As well as conventional DC output to power ancillaries, it takes up to a 2 Amp charge from the new VL-DT1 charger. This charger, although compact and light, monitors the cell status and controls charge accordingly to extend battery life and performance.

Users of smaller equipment were not neglected with existing battery solutions for JVC and Panasonic joined by new products to work on the Sony L and BPU battery mounts.

The BPU form factor batteries have the benefit of USB power out as well as the advanced D-Tap first seen on the DUO Compact batteries.

The L series being lower voltage have the X-Tap DC output connector and again have USB power out.

A prototype X-Tap charger was shown capable of charging a number of the smaller batteries in the IDX range.
