Using a Skypanel S60 with a Cine VCLX Block Battery
Pascal Steinhaeusser posted a topic in LightingHello, Was wondering if any of you ever used a Skypanel S60 with an Anton bauer Cine VCLX block battery? I know battery voltage of Cine VCLX has max 28v (3pin XLR) which reduces light output from S60. My question is mainly regarding cabling in order to power the Skypanel on this type of battery. Arri don't seem to have/sell a cable or adapter from Battery input on the head 23-36V DC (4 pin XLR) to 28V (3 pin XLR) output on the Cine VCLX. Do you, in that case, DIY the cable? In which case, what recommendations do you have for AWG of cabling, max length and/or other useful information regarding wiring specs would you have for me? Thank you!
Block battery to power LED 1x1?
James McLauchlan posted a topic in LightingHi all - I've got a big block battery which I was hoping to use to power some portable 1x1 LED panels for location shoots with no mains power. Problem is, the battery has a 3-pin XLR output and the panels I'm looking at have a 4-pin XLR input. I have 2 queries: 1. Can I use some kind of 3-pin XLR to 4-pin XLR adapter / cable to connect the battery and the LED panel? I've seen a few around online but not sure if they're suitable for taking battery power (see Dedolight DEA423 3-pin to 4-pin XLR). I'm also a bit wary about pin polarity etc going from 3-pins to 4-pins... Not sure if they will be correctly wired for the 4-pins on my LED? 2. Am I OK hooking up a battery of this size and power to a 1x1 LED? Forgive me, I'm not very savvy with electrical current - hoping perhaps a Gaffer or Spark may be able to shed some knowledge here! My current assumption is that the LED panel will only draw as much voltage and current as it needs from the battery and won't be at risk of being overloaded. Is this right? The kit in question: Battery: Dynacore DHB-30 block battery - Voltage: 26V - Capacity: 30Ah / 780Wh - Max output current: 30A LED 1x1: Lupo Superpanel (dual colour) - Battery operation: 14.8V to 24V - Consumption: 110W Any advice would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance.
