PLAINVIEW, NY, SEPTEMBER 6, 2022 ─ Core SWX, a leader in battery and charging solutions, introduces the most advanced B-mount charger on the market. As B-mount packs begin to become a mainstay in the cinema industry, the new MACH-Q4MBi answers the need for a B-mount diagnostic battery charger. The new MACH-Q4MBi offers 4A rapid, simultaneous charging along with Adaptive Charge Control (ACC), Core’s proprietary charge protocol which can evaluate battery health during each pack’s charging cycle. Additional features include a standalone discharge function along with offering Core’s patented VoltBridge wireless monitoring platform.
“Core was one of the first to ship B-mount packs in large quantities, and immediately thereafter hire companies, along with production companies asked for a diagnostic charger,” explains Ross Kanarek, CEO. “Our Mach4 Micro series chargers are becoming a staple in the industry for V and G Mount battery charging and diagnostics, so adding a B-mount compatible model is a natural addition.”
Core’s new ACC algorithms can improve battery longevity and performance up to 30% over the life of the pack. It evaluates the battery pack based on age, cycle count, learned capacity as well as last full charge capacity, to determine the appropriate charge routine for the pack. While in charge mode, the charger continually monitors the pack for feedback during the charge process to adjust as needed. This process insures top performing packs are charged as fast as possible, while older packs are charged efficiently while accounting for changes in cell performance overtime to minimize degradation and capacity loss.
In addition to battery management, the Mach 4 Micro Chargers include SafeFly Standalone Discharge mode to allow the packs to discharge down to 30% when AC mains power is not present. This feature provides additional value and allows you to carry one charging system for both charge and discharge of the battery packs.
The new charger will mark its first debut at Core SWX’s stand 11.A22 during the 2022 IBC Show and will ship immediately thereafter.
