    Being a Lockit at its core, the ACN-CL carries the DNA of its predecessors and inherits all the unique and appreciated features, combined with the unprecedented ease of use that has been first introduced with the NanoLockit.

    Battery

    Running off a changeable Li-Ion battery that can be charged in the unit while operating makes sure you never be let down with depleted power when you need it the least.

    The supplied NP-50 type battery is not only widely available along with economically priced chargers but also used by top tier professional radio mic brands which further helps reducing the variety of gear to carry along.

    Connected to a Mac or PC the USB-C port also serves for deep level settings or MIDI timecode I/O without additional configuration.

    Display

    Just like the NanoLockit, jamming units to time of day with the internal Real Time Clock is a one button experience, but with the additional perk of a crisp OLED display. Lockit can also operate as master by automatically jamming units that are added or restarted during the day.

    The OLED also brings the useful timecode compare tool introduced with firmware 6.0 so it is easy to determine if other equipment is still in sync – with an accuracy of 1/100 of a frame.

    Size and Signals

    While our smaller units were always marked by a prefix such as Tiny or Nano, the ACN-CL proudly carries the name “Lockit” and it wouldn’t do so without supplying both timecode and sync signals.

    Designed for today’s equipment it supports 1080P and 1080i genlock for project rates 23.976 to 60 FPS while audio recorders are covered with wordclock up to 192 KHz.

    Outputs

    Dual Lemo output connections provides maximum flexibility and continued use of available cables. TC in and out follow industry standard and allow for syncing of 2 cameras in parallel or jamming via a cable while leaving the synced unit connected.
    The primary output carries timecode and genlock/wordclock. This gives you the freedom to choose running it either on straight, Y-split cable or 2 separate leads using the second connector for timecode which also connects to devices that support ACN for metadata transfer.

    Powering and charging

    External power and charging are available through a common USB-C port. Connected to a Mac or PC the Lockit transforms into a MIDI timecode interface without additional configuration and allows for deep level editing of the settings.

    Not just for the bling the sync LED is now full RGB so we have another color for status indication and party mode. We fit all of this and more in a compact solid aluminum case that makes the ACN-TL TinyLockit and even ALL601 LancLogger look large by comparison.
