Re: D-tap voltage

No, they dont
the original idea of D-Tap was ro drive lights on Betacams. So they were connected direct from the onboard battery, and was not regulated to provide the maximum current available.
Its assumed D-tap is 12V, but could be up to 16V with lithium batteries.

Hope everyone is ok and safe,

I am comparing the on-board 12v batteries specs. The D-tap conexion states de Amps but never seems to specify the exact voltaje. I´m wondering, do D-Taps provide always regulated 12v because that defines the standard or do they provide what voltage the battery state is. Same for the D-taps in on-board battery plates and so on.
