Re: D-tap voltage
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
some batteries with multi-D-taps on the side specify a max current supplied at each. Some plates with D-tap have a built in replaceable fuse. So one can't assume it's always "direct from the battery". Usually the spec sheet will warn you if battery damage, through misapplication or defective cabling, is a possibility.

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.
