The Fleet Micro Q and Fleet Q “i” series of chargers continue to be the most advanced in the industry, now with the inclusion of the Voltbridge Wireless Charger Fleet management. The chargers offer a complete battery management system for your battery “Fleet.” Besides being the fastest battery chargers in the industry today (four 98wh packs in under 2 1/2hrs.), the chargers offers a TEST mode to determine battery health and recharge performance.
With the inclusion of a micro USB on the rear of the unit, that data can then be viewed and managed with a PC application. The micro USB doubles as an input for future free firmware upgrades(downloadable via the web).
In addition to battery management, the Fleet Intelligent Charger Series includes a SafeFly mode. With one touch of the onboard membrane button console or via the Voltbridge App, the chargers will either charge the connected packs to up to 30% or discharge to under 30%, depending on the state of charge of those connected. The one-touch operation allows you to quickly prepare all packs for air travel or shipment. This feature can also be applied to a single connected pack.
The Fleet intelligent series is also the most cross-compatible, able to address not only CoreSWX battery packs but those offered by RED, Anton/Bauer, and many more. With this additional charge compatibility, it provides piece of mind that whether you’re on location with multiple crews, charging legacy packs, or your rental Fleet, this Fleet series has you covered. Once the battery pack is connected, the Fleet Intelligent Series chargers first determines the packs’ chemistry and then make and model to properly charge the pack to optimal capacity. The chargers can simultaneously and automatically do this for up to the 4 packs connected via a microprocessor driven circuit design.
The series includes a 90w DC 4-pin XLR power supply to power most cameras. In addition to the on-board power supply, the charger doubles as a battery bank when in “Hypercine” power supply mode(unregulated 12v-16.8v DC). The charger parallels all the on-board battery packs to provide continuous power, and the charger’s LCD reports back available capacity as well as remaining runtime. With the optional “Hypercine module,” the charger provides both unregulated 12v-16.8v 4-pin XLR, as well as 28v regulated 3-pin XLR DC outputs.
The chargers are available in Gold Mount and V-mount, backed by a 3 year warranty, and made in the USA.
