Lentequip SafeTap Connector - Single
Product code : LEN.STAP1
Now shipping new Revision 4. SafeTap Revision 4 ensures that the ground connection ALWAYS comes first which has been proven to minimize 12G SDI driver electronics damage on newer cameras when using external P/DTap accessories.
Patented protection for all your P or D Tap powered accessories. Built-in intelligence monitors for reverse polarity, over/under voltage, short circuits and prevents battery deep discharge.
Note: This is the connector only & has no cable attached. It will require that you or your technician solder a connection cable to the connector. Each SafeTap comes with instructions or these can be downloaded on the FAQ tab above
SafeTap: It's not money spent, it's money saved!
The SafeTap Connector from Lentequip is an active D-tap battery connector which features a built-in multi-colored LED indicator to provide feedback on reverse polarity, over/under voltage, and short-circuit conditions which can damage your battery or your attached equipment. A sleep mode is activated at 10V, indicated by a blue light, to guard your battery against deep discharge. This feature prevents your power source from draining into the damaging extreme low voltage zone should you inadvertently leave a powered accessory unattended. The assembly is quick and easy with "knock-out" sections on the left and right sides of the housing which allow for easy cable exit. Cable strain relief is accomplished via a tie wrap which counteracts pull-out forces.
Pulsating Green: All systems are good and the input voltage is between 11 and 18V
Fast Flashing Orange: Input voltage exceeds 18V (power output disabled)
Slow Flashing Orange: Input voltage is at or just below 11V, indicating a low battery
Blue: Input voltage is at 10V or less (power output disabled)
Red: 8A current limit exceeded (power output disabled)
Fast Flashing Red: SafeTap is plugged in backwards (power output disabled)
Purple: Too hot (power output disabled)
The SafeTap provides user feedback via its multicoloured LED. 8 amps continuous may be drawn from the connector but may have to be slightly de-rated based on ambient temperature, lead length and the cross section of cable used. A sleep mode is activated at 10V, indicated by a blue light, to guard your battery against deep discharge. This feature prevents your costly power source from draining into the damaging extreme low voltage zone should you inadvertently leave a powered accessory unattended.
Prevents Damage to Batteries & Equipment
The SafeTap was also designed with easy and speedy assembly in mind. Knock-out sections on the left and right side of the housing allow for easy cable exit. Cable strain relief is accomplished via a simple yet effective tie wrap.
NOTE: To ensure polarity protection for your equipment you MUST have the SafeTap tied to the cable that goes DIRECTLY to said equipment! Putting a SafeTap on a PTap splitter, for instance, will NOT protect "dumb" PTaps plugged into the splitter from reverse polarity!
