Lemo Upgrade for SmallHD 500 Series Monitors
Media Blackout's Lemo Upgrade for SmallHD 500 Series Monitors provides a Lemo DC input or output to the already versatile 500 Series monitors from SmallHD. The 500 Series Lemo Upgrade includes a replacement mounting block for the back of the monitor. This milled aluminum block will house the Lemo connector and regulator board, giving the much needed room for the additions. While this eliminates the mounting point on the back side of the monitor, it still supplies a mounting point on its underside.
Input - When configured as an input, the Lemo connector can accept 9-36V. The input also features short-circuit protection, thermal shutdown, and a soft-start feature that reduces inrush current.
Output - When configured as an output, the Lemo connector is supplied by both onboard battery plates. Internal diodes prevents any power from being back-fed into the monitor through the Lemo while also keeping the two battery plates isolated from one another. Be aware that there is a .8V drop from the internal batteries through the Lemo connector, so you must make sure your device can accept the voltage.
Input / Output - When configured as an input/output, the upgrade comes with the features of the Input and Output options, but it is assembled with a 3-pin Lemo connector. Pin-1 is ground, pin-2 is input, and pin-3 is output. We recommend purchasing a cable with the upgrade.
Output Cable - Since most Wireless HD receivers require at least 7V of power, we do offer Lemo Booster Cables as an add-on option. Booster cables feature 2-pin Lemo (0B.302) connectors on both sides of the cable and a 12V, 2.2A booster circuit.
This modification requires the purchaser to send in their 500 Series monitor. Media Blackout does not currently offer new devices with modifications already applied. Return shipping will be calculated on checkout. Cables can be purchased separately. Please check out our 2-pin Lemo Cable page for additional cables. Output cables will be appropriately wired for the output polarity you choose.
Need to know more about 2-pin Lemo polarity? Check out our Help Center Article. Other devices may be suitable for modifications as well - just contact us to find out. It is not recommended to use the Lemo output when powering your monitor from a battery eliminator as most battery eliminators are designed only to output enough current for the monitor only.
All Media Blackout cable assemblies use genuine parts and high-quality cable. Cable assemblies are made to order at our office in Los Angeles, CA. If you need custom assemblies, please contact us.
