Superior Gold Mount Battery System
The PAGlink HC-PL150T is a high-current replacement for Anton Bauer Li-Ion batteries. The smaller and lighter PAGlink battery is compatible with the Gold Mount camera plate and with Anton Bauer Li-Ion chargers. There is no need to replace expensive chargers in order to benefit from the many advantages of PAG’s revolutionary, intelligent linking battery technology.
PAGlink is an Industry First
PAGlink is the industry’s first intelligent linking battery system. It offers more power, more technological advances and more benefits to camera professionals and than any other battery system.
PAGlink batteries can be used individually or linked to power a variety of cameras and equipment used for broadcast acquisition, video production or digital cinematography.
Link-Up and Power-Up
PAGlink is the only system that allows you to combine the capacities of two batteries or more, in any state of charge, to achieve longer run-times or a higher current-draw. Up to 8 batteries can be linked for charge or discharge – an industry first.
Increased Capacity, Same Size
The PL150 takes advantage of the latest high-capacity Li-Ion cells in order to provide a greatly increased capacity of 150Wh, in the same enclosure as the PL94 PAGlink battery, and only 1.5oz heavier.
The PL150 is designed for high power-consumption applications, such as a digital cinema camera and multiple accessories. Two batteries can be linked, combining their capacities, to create a 300Wh power source, with a weight of just 3.4lbs (1.54kg) approx.; linking three batteries provides 450Wh; no other system offers as much power.
The rated maximum continuous output for an individual battery is 10A, and 12A when batteries are linked. PAGlink offers more power for set-ups that include multiple accessories. Hard-wearing, heavy duty contacts are incorporated for high-current applications. Linking batteries shares the load and contributes to an extended battery life. PAGlink 150Wh batteries have a 2 year guarantee. No other battery system offers such good return on investment.
Compliant with Air Transport Regulations
The PL150 has a capacity above 100Wh, but below 160Wh, and has an allowance of 2 units per person, in carry-on luggage, when you travel by air. Li-Ion batteries that have capacities greater than 160Wh are banned from passenger aircraft.
The PL150 has been tested to UN standards by an independent authority and certified to comply with air transport safety regulations.
Each PAG Li-Ion battery is labeled with its UN Test number and air travel quantity allowance, based on its capacity.
The PAGlink Network
Linked batteries form a network that enables them to communicate with each other, managing the output safely, and preventing the transfer of charge between batteries. Unlike other systems, the linked batteries can be in any state of charge. PAGlink also allows batteries to be hot-swapped for continuous, uninterrupted power, putting an end to time-consuming camera reboots during shooting.
Smaller & Lighter Batteries
As well as being more intelligent, PAGlink batteries are smaller and lighter, with a higher energy density than other Gold Mount batteries of equivalent capacity.
The PL150 can be linked to any other PAGlink Gold Mount battery for charge or discharge, regardless of rated capacity or state-of-charge.
Run-Time & Capacity Display
The battery incorporates a numeric Run-Time & Capacity display, unique to PAG. Remaining run-time is shown, on-load, expressed in hours and minutes, to a resolution of 1 minute. When batteries are linked, the run-time figure is for the entire stack, but a single button press shows individual battery capacity as a percentage of full, in 1% increments. The display maintains its accuracy by tracking the performance, and adjusting calibration values to compensate for the ageing of the cells.
PAGlink batteries communicate automatically with the camera data system that allows Anton Bauer batteries to display their remaining capacity in the viewfinder and LCD.
Linked Battery Charging
Linked battery charging was developed by PAG and is unique to the PAGlink system. It is more efficient because it allows more batteries to be charged on fewer and smaller chargers, with less user-intervention.
PAGlink allows up to 8 batteries of any rated capacity, in any state of charge, to be linked for charging.
The batteries control their own charge regime which means that Anton Bauer Li-Ion chargers can be used. The number of batteries that can be charged linked is dependent on the charger model and firmware version.
Using PAGlink chargers is the best way to ensure the longest possible battery life. The 2-position PL16 charger (Model 9707A) will charge simultaneously up to 16 PAGlink Gold Mount batteries (8 on each position).
Status during charging is indicated on the PAGlink battery’s individual display, which can be inverted for legibility, with a single button press.
After being fully-charged, PAGlink batteries can be left safely stacked on the charger, until they are needed.
PAGlink batteries store data in their microprocessor, such as number of cycles and software version, which can be revealed using the PAGlink Gold Mount Battery Reader (Model 9647A). This information is designed to make battery management easier and more efficient.
PAGlink battery firmware can be updated in the field by the user, in a matter of seconds, without opening the battery case. Updates enable you to benefit from the technological advances that PAG introduces to accommodate developments in camera technology.
