Bebob has developed the B-Mount, a new battery mount system, in close consultation with ARRI.
German battery manufacturer Bebob Factory GmbH will showcase its newly available B-Mount product range for the first time at CABSAT. This includes its B-Mount batteries, hot-swap adapters and chargers, along with customised V-Mount and Gold Mount adapter plates.
The B-Mount is a new battery mount system aimed at fulfilling the power demands of today’s equipment while providing maximum flexibility at the same time. It has been developed in close consultation with ARRI – the camera manufacturer will be using the B-Mount for all its future cameras. Cross-compatible with on-set camera and lighting equipment from manufacturers worldwide, the B-Mount makes it possible to supply all devices on set using one single battery system.
This newly developed interface has several decisive advantages compared to its predecessors, including being future-proof; providing a dedicated mobile power supply for high-performance 24V devices; having a sturdy connection; featuring the seamless interlocking of individual components; including a universal 24 Volt industry standard for cameras and lights; and providing users with accurate information on run time and charge time, even with stackable batteries, thereby increasing efficiency on set.
