PowerLockit

ACN-PL – The All-In-One Box

Power Distribution | Timecode & Sync Generator | Metadata Recorder

Tidy Up Your Camera

PowerLockit was designed with the core mission of making the camera department happy! We know it can be a tough job to attach several boxes to a camera body and, even more, power them reliably.

The PowerLockit is our answer. This revolutionary, multi-purpose box is the first of its kind as it not only has all familiar power outlets to spare but also combines a sophisticated power distribution, timecode and tri-level sync generator, metadata recorder, and so much more in a unprecedented compact housing.

PowerLockit Functions

Uninterrupted Power Supply

The PowerLockit runs on both external studio power and battery power (preconfigured as V-Mount or GoldMount) with seamless switch-over for continued operation over a battery swap.

Power Distribution

The PowerLockit not only powers the camera but also breaks out into several interfaces to power your accessory:

1x CamPower
3x 2-Pin
1x 3-Pin R/S (24V regulated + Remote In*)
1x USB A (5V / 2A plus data for optional local metadata dump)
1x D-Tap

Timecode and Tri-Level Sync Generator

As with any Lockit, the PowerLockit sets the beat. On set they supply sub frame accurate timecode and genlock to every camera. This enables post-production to auto-conform the clips within a professional editing tool using timecode as reference – saving hours of work with just one mouse click.

Plug & Play

By attaching the appropriate breakout cable, the PowerLockit will auto-configure its sync settings to fit the respective camera. Within the ACN, project framerates are wirelessly synchronized across the whole set.

Metadata Recorder

The PowerLockit is able to record camera and lens metadata of supported devices*, provides the information automatically with 3rd party tools in real time via WiFi – such as the LockitScript App for script supervisors or Pomfort Live Grade.

Add Power To Your Lockit Setup

sync-S

The MasterLockitPlus is part of the highly accurate Lockit Timecode System.

Using Lockits enables easy and intuitive synchronization of cameras and audio recorders while making the alignment of captured material a one-click operation. This workflow saves time and money, while increasing focus on the creative tasks of the post-production.

The first Lockit box was introduced 25 years ago and has received numerous refinements. The Lockit family has since become an established system for mission-critical mobile timecode and synchronization.

Based around a very accurate, temperature-compensated crystal oscillator (TCVCXO) the system can be calibrated in the field to a reference deviation of less than +/- 0.1ppm.

With the newly implemented ACN Continuous Jam, the drift can be brought down to 0. This allows for a synchronicity typically only found in studios, and it doesn’t require hard wiring or relying on problematic RF transmission.
