The Fleet Micro chargers offer a complete battery management system for your battery "Fleet,” including an on-board LCD to monitor the battery packs' smart battery data. The on-board LCD, in coordination with the LED indication, will tell you what function is being performed on the pack at any given point (charge, discharge, etc.)
The on-board LCD as well displays the battery packs stored information and vitals including; Battery Name, Percentage Charged, Voltage, Serial Number, Date of Manufacturing , Temperature, Actual and Design Capacity, and the number of charge cycles on the battery pack. The vitals allow you to better manage your battery packs. You can compare Actual verse the Design Capacity to see when your pack is ageing a bit, and may want to relegate those packs to lower current draw applications to maximise service life.
Cycle count also proves to be critical. The charger has a battery prioritisation function which highlights which pack has these least amount of charge cycles. This allows you to equally distribute your usage across all your battery packs.
We wanted to make sure this charger will work for everyone and anyone. The Fleet Micro series is the most cross-compatible charging product in the industry. Able to address not only Core SWX battery packs but those offered by RED, Anton/Bauer, and many more, this unit will certainly be an integral part in your equipment inventory.
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, the Fleet Micro has you covered.
Fleet Rapid Charging
With a 15A, work horse of a power supply, the charger will charge your packs faster than any other in the industry today. Charging simultaneously at 3A per channel, the Fleet Micro series will charge up to two 98wh packs in under 2.5hrs.
Battery Management Test Mode
Besides being the fastest battery charger in the industry today, the charger offers a TEST mode to determine battery health and recharge performance. The Test mode function which performs full charge-discharge-full charge routine, will identify the capacity of the battery and indicate any performance issues, such as low battery voltage indicating a shorted cell or a cell imbalance condition. This gives you piece of mind, and confidence that the packs you are going out on a shoot with are going to perform as expected.
Transportation of and travel with Lithium Ion battery packs is a concern of everyone nowadays. Fleet Micro chargers have a function which will either charge or discharge all connected packs or a selected pack, based on the battery packs state-of-charge(SOC), to 30% SOC. We aptly named this function "SafeFly:' The 30% SOC level is to meet regulatory requirements for safe Lithium Ion battery pack air transport. The great thing about this feature is that it 's fully automated.
Set an individual pack or all packs to SafeFly, comeback a few hours later, and the pack(s) are ready to be shipped via Air. This will do away with having you or your assistant manually discharge your packs on a piece or multiple pieces of equipment.
The reason for the inclusion of the mini USB on the rear of the unit is simple, it allows you to have more control over your charger. We will have a PC application out (late 2017) which will allow you to monitor, spreadsheet and manage your battery fleet on your computer. In addition, firmware updates will be a breeze, as the USB port will allow you to receive and update your charge firmware in a flash!
Power Supply Mode
The Micro 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 based on current draw.
With the optional "Hypercine module (available late 2017)”, the charger provides both unregulated 12v-16.8v 4-pin XLR, as well as 28v regulated 3-pin XLR DC outputs.
