Anton/Bauer highlights Tandem 150 modular power system
Anton/Bauer debuted its new Tandem 150 modular power system at IBC2009. Ideal for remote and on-location shoots, the system operates as a DC power supply once a camera or other device is connected and turned on. It functions by separating the power/charger device from the power supply, allowing a user to simultaneously charge a battery and power a camera. When a 75W draw is exceeded, the system automatically stops charging and performs solely as a 150W power supply. Likewise, if the camera is turned off or the load is reduced below 75W, the Tandem 150 instantly resumes normal operation. The system also allows for high-power applications, a feature previously unavailable with the Tandem 70 system.
The system measures 5.2in x 4.03in x 2.19in and gives users the option of operating the system from the AC Mains (90V to 250V AC, 50Hz to 60Hz), the charger via a car’s cigarette lighter or with the Anton/Bauer Solar Panel.
