TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE The D-Box (Weapon/Epic-W/Scarlet-W/Raven, Power Distribution Only) is temporarily unavailable but should be available soon.
Wooden Camera is in the process of putting Amp limitations on the D-Box which will ensure that the camera receives the required 4-6A for normal operation. During the redesign process, the D-Box will be unavailable for order. An upgrade to units previously purchased and currently in use will be available at no charge upon completion of the redesign. If customers choose to continue using the D-Box in its current form, it is important to know what amount of power your batteries are capable of providing. A RED Brick battery can supply up to 10A with the camera generally consuming 4-6A in its standard configuration. Although the remaining power is available from the D-Taps, LEMO compatible connectors, Fischers, etc., it is best to limit the power draw from these additional outputs to 4A or less for best results. Consuming more power than a battery is capable of providing will cause the battery to shut itself off, and possibly damaging the camera and power accessory. Additionally, a camera shut-down can produce data loss.
Cable-less products currently work with any 6.3 release firmware and lower. In the next 4-8 weeks time, we will offer an upgrade option to work with 7.0+ firmware.
D-Box (Weapon/Epic-W/Scarlet-W/Epic-W/Raven, Power Distribution Portion Only) is for owners of our Cable-less V-Mount, Blueshape, of Gold Mount that want to add power distribution, standardized remote start/stop, and hot swap abilities to their RED DSMC2 camera. The completed D-Box assembly is tool-less for installation and utilizes our Cable-less interface which attaches directly to the back of the camera body, Base Expander Module, REDVolt Expander Module, and the OffHollywood O-Mods.
Connectors on the D-Box are contoured to match the Expander Modules' which allow for all cables to be installed with no collisions. The module communicates with the camera and allows any ARRI standard start/stop trigger to be used with the 3pin Fischer port. The DC input on the D-Box is the same as the camera's compatible connectors allowing for an AC power supply or external power plate to be connected to power accessories and camera during a battery change. When both battery and DC input are utilized, the D-Box defaults to the DC input, leaving the battery fully charged.
When combined with V-Mount or Gold Mount plate, one D-Tap is obscured by the right side power outputs. The camera receives an unfused connection to the battery while the D-Box connectors share a 7.5A fuse.
When using Cable-less and D-Box battery modules it is important to know what amount of power your batteries are capable of providing. A RED Brick battery can supply up to 10A with the camera generally consuming 4-6A in standard configuration. Although the remaining power is available from the D-Taps, LEMO compatible connectors, Fischers, etc., it is best to limit the power draw to 4A or less for best results. Consuming more power than a battery is capable of providing will cause the battery to shut itself off, killing the camera and accessory power.
Connectors used in this assembly are not manufactured by LEMO but are made to the same specifications and are LEMO compatible.
