An interview from the 2017 National Association of Broadcasters Convention in Las Vegas with Andrew Butler of Anton/Bauer. With more than 40 years of proven experience, Anton/Bauer is recognized as the world’s premier provider of multi-chemistry battery, charging, and monitoring technologies for the professional broadcast, pro-video, cinema and healthcare industries. The company’s industry-standard products are compatible with every camera brand on the market today, while providing top-tier levels of safety, performance and reliability. In this interview Andrew talks with us about the LPD Discharger, a dedicated Unit that discharges up to Four Li-ion Batteries simultaneously to ensure Compliance with IATA Air Transport Regulations.
The all-new LPD Discharger, developed in partnership with one of the world’s largest rental houses, can discharge up to four 90 Wh batteries in three hours or less, helping customers comply with the IATA regulations that state that Li-ion batteries transported as cargo must be charged to no more than 30 percent of their rated capacity.
As a dedicated battery discharge unit, the LPD requires no external power; rather, it uses energy from the batteries it is discharging. This allows for travel-friendly operation and ensures that the discharging process does not damage the batteries. Weighing less than 1 kilogram, the system is fan-cooled and thermally protected, making it safe to use and leave unattended in any environment. With its robust metal chassis, the Anton/Bauer’s LPD Discharger is designed to be shipped to any location with the batteries attached for the user’s convenience.
