The timecode slate with full ACN integration

The ACN-LS timecode slate is a highly accurate smart-slate system featuring a unique product design and functionality.

The completely revised LED timecode display features double the brightness at less than half of the power consumption of its predecessor. This allowed us to reduce the batteries to only 4 AA cells while still achieving prolonged battery life. Additionally, we equipped the new slate with light and motion sensors. Thus, the brightness can adjust automatically to the local light conditions, and the timecode display flips when the slate is turned upside down. The easy removable handle allows for perfect one-handed operation.


Use the display standalone as fully functional timecode interface”

With it’s all-new and revolutionary modular construction, the electronic section of the Lockit Slate can also serve as a fully functional, compact standalone display for documentary or desktop use.


Housed in a machined, pearl-blasted and anodized aluminum body, it can easily withstand the roughest production conditions.

Never loose the timecode when changing batteries…

Thanks to the built-in supercapacitor, the ACN-LS is able to hold the highly accurate timecode for more than 10 minutes after loss of power.
Changing batteries no longer automatically means  re-jaming the slate.
