It is a very small, bright read-out unit, that gives you the ability to read-out the distance anywhere, everywhere.Vincent-Aaron Segers 1st AC, Owner Operator, Belgium

If working with common range finders, such as cmotion‘s cfinder III, ARRI‘s UDM, Cinetape or Ward‘s Sniper, the cdistance can be connected directly to the cvolution hand unit, the cvolution camin or ARRI‘s UMC-4.
The sleekest setup can be achieved by using the cdistance directly with the cfinder III. Alternatively, if you are using an Alexa mini with an LCUBE CUB-1, ARRI‘s miniature signal converter, you can also use the UDM or Cinetape in a cforce daisy-chain setup.
ARRI WCU-4 support, which will allow to get the distance read out, if connected to the WCU-4 as well, will be coming with a future WCU-4 firmware.
3 buttons on the top enable functions to adjust brightness, view (choose between distance, focus, iris or zoom visualisation) and unit (metric or imperial).
small and light weight
Can I use the cdistance with the compact LCS?
Yes, you can connect the cdistance to your compact LCS hand unit through an LBUS cable. Please note, that if working with a UDM or Cinetape, you will need an LCUBE CUB-1 to convert the serial protocol of the Ultra Sonic measurement into the LBUS protocol.
Can I use multiple cdistances at once?
Yes, you can use on cdistance on the camin, to visualize the distance, focus, iris or zoom value, and another one connected to the hand unit.
Can I use the cdistance with an UDM, even, if I do not have a cvolution camin or other cmotion products?
Yes, if you connect the UDM sensor to an LCUBE CUB-1, you can have a bright and clean distance read out on the cdistance. For changing settings of the UDM, you will need to reconnect the UDM display.
Can I use the cdistance on my WCU-4?
Not yet, but this is planned for a future release of the WCU-4
How much ampere does the cdistance draw?
This depends on the brightness level and power source:
|7.2 V||12 V||24 V||operating hours if connected to hand uni t|
|brightness level 1||0,06 A||0,03 A||0,01 A||approx. 31 hours|
|brightness level 2||0,08 A||0,04 A||0,02 A||approx. 22 hours|
|brightness level 3||0,09 A||0,06 A||0,03 A||approx 20 hours|
|brightness level 4||0,13 A||0,08 A||0,04 A||approx 13 hours|
|brightness level 5||0,25 A||0,15 A||0,09 A||approx 6 hours|
|brightness level 6||0,43 A||0,26 A||0,17 A||
