Tilta Universal Battery Plate – Powering Small and Large Cameras and Accessories

September 25th, 2018

The Universal Battery Plate by Tilta provides continual power via P-tap and dummy batteries for both, small and large cameras, all while powering accessories too.

Tilta’s Universal Battery Plate has been designed as an accessory for their camera cages. Originally created for production and cinema cameras, the battery plate’s power options have been extended to many more, by using the corresponding P-tap cable and dummy battery. A 14.8V V-Lock battery powers the camera – DSLR and mirrorless – and other accessories, providing continuous power.

Four additional power outputs are available on the device through the P-tap outputs, as well as one SDI input and two SDI outputs, which can be used for splitting the camera’s video output to a monitor, recorder, or wireless device.

Another configurable feature is the rod mount, which can be unscrewed and placed at the top or bottom of the battery plate. This allows users to adjust where the battery plate should sit, depending on the rig configuration.

The Tilta Universal Battery Plate will be available soon, with a range of dummy batteries and power cables available.

What are the voltages on the outputs? Are all of them 14.8 standard d-tap or is anything else offered? Is it regulated?
For mirrorless cameras – does the voltage conversion happen on the dummy battery side?

No locking 4 pin hirose connectors which are something of a standard and don’t fall out like d tap.

Not exactly revolutionary, or am I missing something?!. The Tilta v-lock plate I’ve owned for years does this already… powers my blackmagic or Sony camera, smallhd monitor and audio recorder etc all from the one v-lock. A lot slimmer than this block too.
