PAGlink is the first intelligent linking battery system. It offers more power, more functional benefits and more technological advancements than any other battery system.
PAGlink batteries can be used individually or linked to power a variety of cameras used for broadcast acquisition, video production or digital cinema.
PAGlink is the only system that allows you to combine the capacities of more than two batteries, in any state of charge, to achieve longer run-times or a higher current-draw capability. Up to eight batteries can be linked for charge or discharge - an industry first.
The PAGlink PL150 battery has a capacity of 150 Watt-hours; two units per person are allowed in carry-on luggage when travelling on passenger aircraft.
Linking two batteries doubles the capacity to 300Wh; three batteries provide 450Wh. No other system offers as much power.
Hard-wearing, heavy duty contacts are incorporated for high-current applications. The rated maximum continuous output is 12A when linked (8A individually).
Linked batteries form a network that enables them to communicate with each other, managing the output safely, and preventing the transfer of charge between batteries. Unlike other systems the linked batteries can be in any state of charge. PAGlink also allows batteries to be hot-swapped for continuous, uninterrupted power.
As well as being more intelligent, PAGlink batteries are smaller and lighter, with a higher energy density than any V-Mount system marketed to date. The PL150 takes advantage of the latest high-capacity Li-Ion cells in order to provide a greatly increased capacity, without an increase in size. The PL150 utilises the same battery case as the PL96.
PAGlink batteries feature long-life, premier-quality Li-Ion cells, which have no memory effect, and are completely recyclable. In keeping with PAG’s total battery design philosophy they are constructed to provide the longest possible working life.
The battery case is manufactured from high-impact, injection-moulded polycarbonate which is inherently very strong and also used for motorcycle crash helmets. The internal case design also protects the cell-pack against damaging impact.
The PL150e Battery incorporates a 5-light Run-Time & Capacity Indicator which shows remaining camera run-time in hours and minutes. When linked, run-time is displayed for the total of all batteries connected. Battery state-of-charge is displayed as a percentage, in 6 increments. The display maintains its accuracy by tracking the performance, and adjusting calibration values to compensate for the ageing of the cells.
PL150 and PL96 batteries are totally compatible and can be linked for charge or discharge.
PAGlink batteries support four different camera data systems that display capacity in the viewfinder: Sony, IDX, Red and Anton-Bauer. The battery recognises the system’s data protocol and adapts automatically when connected. The battery can be configured easily for compatibility with the Red camera data system by the user (see instruction booklet).
PAGlink batteries store data in their microprocessor, such as number of cycles and software version, which can be revealed using the PAGlink Battery Reader (Model 9647). This information is designed to assist with the management of a large battery inventory.
PAGlink batteries are firmware upgradeable. They can be updated in the field by the user, in a matter of seconds, without opening the battery case. A software update can be supplied by PAG or your dealer. Updates enable you to benefit from the technological advances that PAG introduces to accommodate developments in camera technology.
PAGlink batteries, in any state of charge, can be charged individually or linked, using any reputable V-Mount Li-Ion charger. The 2-position PAGlink PL16 charger (Model 9707) will simultaneously charge up to 16 PAGlink batteries (8 on each position). When using non-PAGlink chargers, the batteries must be in a similar state of charge when linked (within 40%) in order to be fully charged. Status during charging is indicated on the PAGlink battery’s individual display
The battery features a multi-level electronic protection system which is fail-safe and guards against conditions that reduce battery life. The circuits are coated with Parylene to protect them and ensure the operation of the safety systems in the event of damage to the battery.
The PL150T has been tested by an independent authority to UN standards and certified to comply with air transport safety regulations. Its capacity is above 100Wh, but below 160Wh, and two units per person are allowed in carry-on luggage on passenger aircraft.
