Re: Eclair ACL Burnt Out HD Motors
Mark, are you going to drop the voltage on your batteries to 13.2? Mercer

I e-mailed Jean Pierre at Aaton to ask about voltages with the ACL HD motor.
He replied: "I must say I haven't the least idea... and no technical notes
can be found in Aaton about these motors. Sorry not to be helpful."
George at OEH replied that with the Eclair HD motor, a battery giving 14.4 volts without a load (ie-tested when the camera isn't running) is OK, but if it tests circa 15.5 without a load (which a fully charged 14.4 volt battery will do) then he doesn't recommend it.
So I guess using a 13.2 volt battery would be safer. (Just pull one cell out of a 14.4 to get 13.2). (-ugh-)
