Intelligent Parallel Charging For V-Mount Li-Ion Batteries

PAG's new four-channel V4-iPC charger incorporates four V-Mount compatible connectors and is suitable for charging V-Mount Li-Ion batteries manufactured either by PAG or Sony.
The charger features the company's own fully-automatic and highly-efficient Intelligent Parallel Charging regime, which incorporates 3 phases:
  • Phase 1: 'Pre-Charge' prepares shutdown or deeply discharged batteries for charge acceptance
  • Phase 2: 'Testing' determines the type and state-of-charge of the batteries, and the maximum current that can be applied
  • Phase 3: 'Charging' shares the charge current intelligently between the channels, to provide usable capacity as quickly as possible, and achieve four fully charged batteries in the most efficient way
The charger is both quiet and cool-running during operation. It has a lightweight but robust, impact-resistant moulded construction which makes it ideal for location use. The unit can be carried with the batteries connected.
A large, backlit LCD screen provides a continually updated display of battery and charger status, indicating at all times which batteries are receiving charge, the charge current and the battery voltage.
The unit is capable of receiving firmware updates externally, without the need to open the charger. Upgrades could include the facility to charge other cell-chemistries, if required.
The latest PFC power supply technology enables the PAG V4-iPC Charger to be powered from any AC power supply, worldwide.
A separate adaptor is available that enables you to power your camera from an AC mains supply, using the V4-iPC charger. The V4-CPA Camera Power Adaptor is housed in a compact, impact resistant case and can be connected to any channel on the V4-iPC charger. In power supply mode charging is suspended. Connection to the camera can be made using an XLR-4 male to female adaptor lead. The V4-CPA is suitable for powering cameras that accept 16.8V, and can only be used in conjunction with the V4-iPC Charger.
The PAG V4-iPC Charger, Model 9700V, is available in the UK, from PAG Ltd., for only £300.
The PAG V4-CPA Camera Power Adaptor, Model 9701V is available in the UK, from PAG Ltd., for only £99. Prices exclude VAT and delivery.
