CX2 - 2-Channel, Camera Slot Mount Receiver

Battery Bud II

CX2

Professional, 2-channel “Slot” ENG wireless camera receiver. Two versions: for Panasonic or Sony cameras with intergrated receiver slots. Provides impressive RF range, True Diversity reception across both audio channels with Front-end digitally controlled tracking filters and up to 80 MHz switching bandwidth.

Menu

The Menu uses a blue OLED display. The menu is incredibly intuitive and a snap to work with under pressure in the field. You can choose to have both channels displayed together or each individual channel for larger view.

Output & Powering

CX2/P output: Panasonic - Outputs and External DC are via the 25-pin D-Sub connector on the bottom of the unit.

CX2/S output: Sony - Outputs and External DC are via the 15-pin D-Sub connector on the bottom of the unit. Aux balanced outputs of both channels are also via the Binder 7-pin connector on the top.

Features:

  • up to 80 MHz Switching bandwidth in 25 kHz steps (24 usable MHz spread at one time)

  • 512 - 572 MHz and 614 - 694 MHz operating ranges - via 2 frequency blocks

  • Compatible with En2 TXPH and miniTX Transmitters

  • True Diversity across both audio channels for Camera integrated Slots

  • Front-end digitally controlled tracking filters

  • Camera Slot Mount design - audio output and DC power via D-sub connector

  • 25-pin D-Sub for connector Panasonic Cameras (CX2/P)

  • 15-pin D-Sub connector + Aux 7-pin Binder for Sony cameras (CX2/S)

  • Scan for open frequency or for Transmitters

  • Table Scanning with Spectrum Analyzer showing open frequencies in 200 kHz steps

  • Menu system driven by OLED display via three durable pushbuttons

  • Visual LED indicators for diversity switching and signal loss

  • 7-pin Binder locking connector for Aux outputs on CX2/S (Note: It cannot be powered through the Binder 7-pin)

  • 6-18V External DC supplied by camera via D-Sub

  • 32 factory preset frequencies available in each Table

  • 32 user selected frequencies in 25 kHz steps can be stored in each Table Made in the UK

What is ‘true diversity’?


Most manufacturers offer ‘diversity receivers’ with two antennae connected to only a single receiver. Signal switching
takes place between the antennae (at rf level) which means there is often an audible ‘click’ on the recorded sound as
the signal being delivered to the receiver is momentarily interrupted during switching. With the true diversity DX,
that problem doesn’t happen since switching takes place between the two receivers at the audio frequency level with
no interruption of signal.

Menu Control

The CX2 is set up using a series of menus which are viewed in the OLED display.

The menu is incredibly intuitive and a snap to work with under pressure in the field. It has a programable screen saver to save battery life. OLED displays are even readable in bright sunlight.

You can choose to have both channels displayed together on the HOME screen or an individual channel for larger view.

Powering

External DC to power the CX2 is supplied from the camera via
