Providing integrators with a cost effective, turnkey solution for power amplification in any Audia® powered system, Biamp today introduced its new PA-2 Dual-Channel Power Amplifier Card at ISE 2007. Ideal for small to medium size venues such as courtrooms or boardrooms, PA-2 cards enable any AudiaFLEX to directly power 4, 6 or 8 ohm speakers, eliminating the need for extra, separate amplifiers, saving power and rack real estate and reducing overall project time and cost.
"PA-2 cards are a cost-effective alternative to cumbersome external amplifiers," said Matt Kotvis, Engineer, Biamp Systems. "With the PA-2 card and AudiaFLEX, integrators simply need to install microphone and line inputs then terminate the corresponding speaker outputs at the appropriate modules. It's a powerful and versatile amplification package that can only be achieved using AudiaFLEX."
With software configurable options for customizing output power, the new PA-2 cards provide integrators with an equal blend of versatility and functionality. PA-2 cards can be configured from 5 to 30 watts dual-channel and from 10 to 60 watts mono-bridged. An upgraded AudiaFLEX can support up to 12 PA-2 cards with a total power output of 120 watts, providing ample power without compromising processing power dedicated to other DSP functions.
Each PA-2 seamlessly integrates with the AudiaFLEX chassis and provides two amplifier channels, the ability to be configured for mono-bridge, selectable power output ratings, manual or automatic load impedance selection and load and thermal monitoring.
The new PA-2 card is RoHS compliant and complies with all AES grounding practices. PA-2 cards are also covered by Biamp's five-year warranty program.
