Portable AC Power System Revealed
SANTA MONICA, Calif.–PortableACPower.com,
Inc. has unveiled the Freedom-1 portable AC power source, which allows
production professionals to take AC power to remote locations.
According to the company, the Freedom-1 AC power system is
designed with portable lighting fixtures and video monitors in mind, as well as
the ability to charge mobile phones and camera batteries.
Freedom-1’s technology provides conditioned, pure sine-wave
AC power, like that provided in studios.
The Freedom 1 Power Solution is packaged with a F1 Power
Module, which can be removed and exchanged within the Freedom-1 system and
recharged from an AC or DC power source (such as an automobile’s 12V system).
In its Normal Mode, each module can power a Litepanels 1x1
fixture for 2 hours, 20 minutes. In its HD Mode (high current), each removable
Freedom-1 battery can power a Joker 200 Watt light for 30 minutes. For longer
runtimes, additional power modules are available. A built-in fuel gauge allows
monitoring of the remaining battery life.
The Freedom-1 power supply is protected against overload,
short circuit and high-voltage input.
Freedom-1’s dimensions (10-by-6.6-by-10-inch)
also make it easy to store and transport.
