PowerSlot for V-Mount, Uni-slot receivers
Only few professional video cameras also offer a possibility for slide-in radio receiver. The Ambient Recording PowerSlot chassis provides the solution for the renowned ARRI AMIRA camera. The module is fastened between camera and battery, directly interfacing with the camera, and forms a permanent joint with minimal alteration of the balance. The power is looped through to the camera, powering the receiver. Therefore the module also replaces the battery mount of the camera. The PowerSlot is available as V-Slot (AMS-V) and Anton Bauer (Gold Mount) version (AMS-AB), both equipped with a D-Tap connector to power external devices.
The PowerSlot is equipped with an Unislot (Sub-D 25-pin) connector. This makes it compatible with most Slot-In receivers by Lectrosonics, Audio Limited, Wisycom, Sennheiser, etc. To offer highest flexibility, a TA5M jack is attached at the side, offering two balanced outputs on a TA5 connector, for dual receivers.
Thanks to customized cables for ARRI AMIRA camera dangling cables become a relic of the past.
Additionally, the unit incorporates a new powerful buffer-battery circuitry for convenient battery hot swapping. Even with 100 Watt power consumption, the internal backup battery powers the AMIRA for 10 seconds. When fully charged, the unit can accommodate 18 battery changes without recharging.
The battery is automatically recharged with 3 LEDs always displaying the actual status.
