600 Wh free-standing battery
The Anton/Bauer VCLX NM2 Battery is a 14.4V, 28V and 48V 600Wh NiMH battery that provides dual simultaneous outputs and is ideal for high current applications. Power output is via two 4-pin XLR connectors for 14.4V and one 3-pin XLR connector for 28V or 48V.
This battery connects to the VCLX 2 charger and using an advanced charge algorithm allows the fastest charge on the block battery market. Information such as the product ID, learned capacity, cycle count, time stamped errors, condition of the battery packs, and more is viewable either on the VCLX or through Anton Bauers Fleet Management program, which is made possible by the built in Wi-Fi. Smart electronic fuses controlled internally will prompt a warning on the LCD and will automatically reset and self-heal when the battery detects it is safe to do so. This event is also recorded internally with date and time stamp for reviewing via Fleet Management.
Also built into the battery is an 2.4" LCD screen that accurately displays the percentage of remaining battery capacity at all times so you can perform real-time onboard diagnostics to keep your battery and equipment performing perfectly.
To protect against damage to the battery, this battery has a low voltage cut-off feature which will automatically shut off the battery at 12 volts.
Microprocessor Fuel Computer
Accurately monitors the energy put into and taken out of the battery. This data is processed with sophisticated programs that take into account battery age, self-discharge, charge/discharge rate, cell imbalance, and previously experienced charge/discharge cycles. The battery constantly "learns" its precise state of charge and remaining capacity. This data is automatically transmitted to the charger.
Integral RealTime LCD
Monitor for user interaction and 3 tactile buttons for menu navigation. Accurately displays the percentage of remaining battery capacity at all times.
The multi-voltage output, both 14.4, 28V and 48V makes this battery unique, making it the perfect application for film cameras, monitors, lights and many more accessories.
High Current Output
Allows for 24 amp current drawn from 14.4 volt outputs and 16 amp draw from 28 volt outputs or 12 amp from the 48V.
Anodized lightweight aluminum chassis and bolted aluminum handle with durable over-molded elastomer end caps and handle grip. VCLX NM2 battery protects the cells from impact and normal operating use.
Individual Computer Testing
Like all professional Anton/Bauer batteries, this battery has been individually computer tested, for assurance of optimum capacity, voltage, and overall quality.
Low Voltage Cut-Off
The battery has a low voltage cut-off to protect against damage to the battery. The low voltage cut-off is set to 12V.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I fly with the VCLX NM2?
Yes the VCLX NM2 is a NiMH battery and can be taken as hand luggage or placed into the hold of an aircraft. Because it is a NiMH battery there is no need to discharge it so it will be at 100% charged and ready to go when you get off your flight.
How long does it take to charge the VCLX NM2?
The VCLX NM2 charges from 0 to 100% in 5 hours
Is the VCLX IP rated?
The VCLX NM2 is not IP rated. However the base of the VCLX is water resistant
What power outputs does the VCLX NM2 have?
The VCLX NM2 has 2 x 4-pin XLR for 14.4v, 1 x 3-pin XLR for 28v or 48V and a USB A port. These provide 48VDC at a continuous 12A, 28VDC at a continuous 16A and 10-17 V at a continuous 24A
What information can I get from the VCLX NM2?
This gives the rental houses access to Product ID, Learned Capacity, Cycle count, XLR outputs (V,A) condition of the battery packs, time stamped error/fault reports all in an Excel file format. The unit can either connect to the Rental house WiFi and upload this data to their network or the data can be downloaded on a USB stick
How do I discharge the VCLX NM2?
There is no need to discharge the VCLX.
Can I connect multiple units?
Yes, with an official Anton Bauer combiner unit.
