i was handed a teradek bolt to try for today on set and i have a questions regarding the receiver and power sources.
the package contents contain 2x ptap to lemo, suggesting to me that a cable would go to each the transmitter and receiver.
the transmitter worked fine with the cable and patp power.
i had the receiver screwed atop a smallhd ac7, which was powered by an anton bauer dionic 90 and hytron 140 for testing.
the monitor received power normally but when i plugged the teradek receiver in via ptap to lemo, the monitor shut off and the battery meter flashed. i tried this with a vmount adapter and battery (not connected to the monitor) with the same result. when the receiver is plug into dc power it works fine.
the teradek bolt power input reads 6-28v
i am still behind on my eletrical knowledge. why would none of the batteries power the bolt? im sure this is somethin as simple as "it draws too many volts," but why does the the input show 6-28v?
have a good one.
