Stop using the P/D-Tap connectors on your expensive state-of-the-art equipment. Why ? (READ THIS TESTIMONIAL NOW!) One reverse polarity insertion and you'll be happy you did! Reverse polarity insertions are among the leading causes of P-Tap'ed equipment failure. The SafeTap detects this deadly condition and never enables the output to the device it is connected to. Lentequip’s new SafeTap connector is a complete reinvention of the existing PowerTap by Anton Bauer and similar D-Taps, featuring a first ever computer controlled connector. Built-in intelligence monitors for reverse polarity, over/under voltage and short circuits so you'll never need to worry about damaging your expensive equipment due to any of these hazardous conditions! The reverse polarity monitoring alone will save rental houses and owner operators costly repairs with unnecessary production downtime and lost revenue.
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 cross section 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.
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 which resists considerable pull-out forces thanks to friction features built into the lower shell housing.
I have redone several of my cables with this connector. I feel much safer now, knowing that if an AC jams it in reversed, it'll not fry my device. Worth every penny.
Lentequip's SafeTap provides protection for your expensive equipment and peace of mind in the production or rental house environment. It delivers value far and away above its modest cost, and is supported by a friendly and ethical manufacturer.
Lentequip's SafeTap is all I use on all my rigs because it gives me peace of mind, and most importantly it protects my investment. I wouldn't drive a car without insurance and I wouldn't risk going abroad without my shots. Similarly, I won't let my gear on set without SafeTaps.
This is a great product. I've loaned out my gear before, only for someone to reverse the polarity and blow it up. These are now on all my cables. If you make your own cables these are a godsend and only cost a few dollars more than the Antons. You'll thank me. I agree with the other reviewer. Worth every penny.
I'm very happy with my SafeTaps! Thank you.
...deine Erfindung ist Spitze.
It came to my attention today that your SafeTap very much works! An impatient assistant jammed a P-Tap splitter box in backwards. Your SafeTap was plugged into the reversed box... then into the Arri Mini. Needless to say, the Mini is fine, no thanks to the assistant, much thanks to you. Love this product.
They are wonderful! I am making some cables now, and I really love the build quality. I am pretty sure we wanted a 100 though.
Can we still arrange that?
Ja, alles in Ordnung!
Leider 2 Tage zu spät gekommen. Kurz vorher ist noch ein Teradek zerstört worden.
Aber das passiert ja jetzt nicht mehr! :-)
