Battery Hot-Swap for ARRI Alexa®


UPS backup battery


10A Max Draw


Data exchange


MVQUICKAL is a hot-swapping and digital communications interface, with the same features of MVQUICK, to be installed permanently on the back of ALEXA®. The main purpose of this device is to allow battery replacement without power interruption to the camera through an automatic detection of the battery removal. See the principles of operation.
Best used with BLUESHAPE V-lock batteries, it acts as a digital communication interface allowing direct communication of the battery runtime parameters to the LCD and viewfinder. Additionally, MVQUICKAL provides an alternative power source of about 21Wh to be used as UPS in case of a sudden power failure or extended power requirements.
High-load cell technology permits discharging of up to 10A when used as a stand alone power source. Although the internal battery is recharged with every installation of a fresh V-lock battery pack, a separate charging unit has been provided to allow for fast and full charge when the unit is empty. The V-Lock hooking parts are made in metal for a precise and reliable battery installation and the battery terminals are made with a high-rate and low resistivity alloy for increased current rating.
