Simultaneous 14v/28v Power Output
Helix is the most complete on-board battery system ever offered to the cinematic industry. The system encompasses all the features of Hypercore, with the added function of dual 14v/28v* simultaneous voltage output, answering the call for better designed and performing, on-board high voltage solutions.
Near Lossless Power Transmission
Leveraging a proprietary, patent pending technology, Helix is ultra-efficient, providing nearly lossless power transmission at a 99% efficiency rate to high voltage operating equipment. Helix's unique design allows it to output up to 33.6v, within the top range of high voltage acceptance, thus drawing less current, creating less heat and extending both operational runtime and product longevity.
Helix's uniquely designed infrastructure allows the pack to function as a standard V-mount or Gold mount 14v pack in all applications without the fear of accidentally transmitting high voltage. Along with standard powering applications, Helix charges on all standard V-mount and Gold mount Lithium-Ion equipment, including Anton/Bauer, allowing it to seamlessly integrate into your current fleet of battery packs.
Compatible with All Applications
Core has produced a series of mount plate offerings for high voltage accepting equipment. To unlock the high voltage output function, couple HELIX with the mount plate. Once mounted, the battery pack will transmit the higher voltage efficiently to the camera, yet still have access to 14v for other production accessories. In addition, the battery mount plates are compatible with standard on-board battery pack. This compatibility allows you to still use your existing V-mount and Gold mount battery packs on wide range voltage cameras.
To provide the cells protection against accidental impacts; the cells are incased in an over molded, non-slip rubberized housing, something Core SWX has been offering for nearly a decade. All these advancements in the mobile powering space have allowed them to offer a rating of up to 2000 charge cycles on these packs, currently the best in the industry.
To protect self-discharge even more and to help with travel regulations since all lithium ion battery packs need to be at or below 30%, Core SWX incorporated "storage mode" into the Hypercore battery packs back in May 2016. All of the Hypercore batteries are shipped from Core SWX warehouse in storage mode which reduces the chance of the battery packs being delivered in a fully depleted state of charge as well as reducing service life. When the battery pack is received by the client, they can either fully charge to awake the pack, or they can simply hold down the LCD backlight button for 20 seconds. The packs can also be placed to go back into storage mode, making this feature furthermore valuable for clients who also travel or ship their production gear via Air.
