New to the market for 2019 Hawk-Woods NP1 data battery system offers communication read outs to feature run-time remaining, percentage of battery and current draw. Over the years NP1 batteries have been solid and very robust offering piece of mind upon powering audio equipment.
Moving forward with this style battery, Hawk-Woods are offering an upgraded NP1 solution to feature the communication to a distribution shoe via a display, all existing kit will still work with the new and improved NP1 setup aslong as at least one NP1 data battery is being used for communication.
To begin with a distribution unit NPD-8S will be available with a display, whilst boasting up to 8x Hirose outputs, six of these switched in three's and two un-switched. Using a different connector as an input allows more current due to Hirose's low current value, meaning you will be able to take power from each Hirose available! A belt clip which can be rotated, will allow you to position the distro ideally within your audio/sound bag!
NP1 data battery offers communication read outs to feature run-time remaining, percentage of battery and current draw. The display will feature this information once a NP1 data battery is connected.
For power in use NPD1 with battery NP-98D and cable LA-8.
