The Bebob COCODVL is a single battery converter for Sony NPF-970 batteries. This unit mounts to Sony cameras such as the Sony VX, DSR, HVR and HDV series and allows you to power camera lights and other accessories.
Coco I-dvl a voltage converter between the battery, camera and accessory. The bebob converter
Coco I-dvl will mount in place of the battery - press and push it down. Then mount the battery
on the same way to the designed holder at the converter.
The 7.2V voltage of the battery, also the Infolithium®-information will passed through the Coco to camera.
Another 8.4V Output (4pin Hirose connector) was designed to supply wireless mic receivers.
The built-in voltage converter supplies, via Twist D-Tag output® 12V power for a camera light
or an external LCD monitor. The match connector is a normal D-Tap and through the Twist-Technology
it is possible to choose the cable guide you desire; while the polarity will be retained.
The Coco-dvl is designed to output a steady 15 W (20 W max. power) at 12V. This is enough for an LCD
monitor, video transmitter or camera light with 10 W bulb. It is also possible to use a 20 W bulb
as long as the camera light is dimmable. When you switch on a 20W bulb there is a start-up peak
which will overload the built-in fuse of most batteries. High-quality batteries incorporate an
internal thermal safety circuit designed to stop current flow when out-rush current is exceeded
to protect the battery from melting or exploding. The circuit can only then be rest by placing
the battery on the charge for a rest cycle.
Warning: The Coco I DVL can only output 0-20W, so do not use an item which draws more than 20W (such as 35W bulb in the Lux or Lux DV).
The running time of camera and light at the recording mode amounts with a 10W bulb to 135 min.
And 75 min. with a 20 W bulb.
Included in this package is an wireless adaptor-plate (WCOL06) accessory to neatly attach a wireless mic receiver.
The Adaptor must be screwed to the Coco.
