Helix Max 98 Series
Helix Max is a game-changing on-board battery system that revolutionizes the cinematic industry with its cutting-edge power capabilities. With a focus on powering cinematic camera and lighting equipment, Helix Max is the most complete battery system ever offered to the industry, featuring a Native Dual Voltage, 14v/28v output, providing better designed and performing on-board high voltage solutions.
The Native Dual Voltage platform is an advanced power delivery system, which allows Helix Max packs to be both compatible with 14v equipment and chargers, as well as high voltage cinematic camera equipment and lighting. Whether you choose V-mount, G-mount or B-mount, this cutting-edge technology enables the Helix Max to output up to 33.6v, which is within the top range of high voltage acceptance, resulting in less current draw, less heat generation, and longer operational runtime. With this platform, Helix Max can provide up to 12A peak on high voltage and 24A peak on low voltage devices, making it the most efficient and versatile power solution for cinematic equipment and lighting. It allows for 100% efficient power transmission since there is no power regulation on the battery mains, ensuring that your equipment runs optimally and without interruption. Whether you’re shooting on location or in the studio, Helix Max’s Native Dual Voltage technology ensures that you have the power you need to get the job done with maximum efficiency and performance.
The Helix Max 9 and 150 are equipped with a 3-phase backlit runtime LCD, strategically mounted on the side of the pack, providing the camera operator or grip unparalleled information on battery life and charge status. This advanced LCD is designed to display estimated runtime when the pack is not in use and actual calculated runtime when it is in use by sampling the load every 3 seconds. When placed on a charger, the LCD rotates 90 degrees to display the remaining charge time until the battery is fully charged. Additionally, the LCD displays a bar graph, runtime in hours and minutes, and remaining percentage capacity, allowing filmmakers and lighting professionals to make informed decisions about their power management strategy.
Additionally, Helix Max battery packs are able to communicate remaining runtime to the camera’s display. By transmitting the same information displayed on the runtime LCD to the camera, operators can view important data such as voltage, battery runtime, and percentage directly on their camera. This feature not only saves time by eliminating the need to check the battery’s status manually, but it also ensures that camera operators always have the most up-to-date information about the battery’s performance. With this level of communication, professionals can work with greater efficiency and accuracy, knowing they have a reliable power source to support their creative vision.
Helix Max can cover all of your high voltage and low voltage powering needs, making it the go-to power solution for all cinematographers and filmmakers. So, if you are looking for an ultra-efficient, dual voltage platform that guarantees lossless power transmission and optimal performance, Helix Max is the perfect choice for you.
Thanks to Core’s Sub60 Charge technology, the GT8 charger can rapidly charge your batteries, allowing you to use the same packs multiple times throughout the day, or “same-day cycle,” without worrying about long wait times for recharging. This feature is perfect for traveling professionals who face challenges in traveling with lithium-ion battery packs. With the GT8 charger, you can travel with fewer packs while maintaining the confidence that you can cycle the packs faster for your cinema and lighting production needs.
