Anton Bauer Hot Swap instead of diode saves 0.6 V
Posted 28 May 2011 - 09:56 AM
But when placing two batteries my built-in diodes still took 0,7 volt off.
That's a lot!
I had a call with technician Robert Ploeg from Anton Bauer Netherlands.
He advised me to use a accesoire called a hot swap from Anton Bauer instead of diodes.
It is using some kind of electrical gimmick so it only 'eats' 0,1 V.
This means that my rig will fly way longer with same batts!
Better even: he send me one to dissasemble the electrical components so I could mod my steadicam.
This seems to me like heaven on earth for the power consumption problem!
Thanks guys from Anton Bauer Netherlands!
There might be a downside with other brands: it only works with AB's because of the 'intelligence' inside.
Will mod this week and will post details later.

It says at the bottom of the page that they are sold out of the diode. Email is there to find out if this is still the case.
