Pascal’s new U-PRO Series amplifier module22 December 2016
Pascal launched its new U-PRO Series amplifier module, which has been optimised for self-powered portable PA systems and ultra-compact, high SPL loudspeakers for fixed installation applications.
It offers both single and asymmetrically rated 2-way power channels.
The U-PRO2 has a 280 W + 100 W two channel asymmetrical power rating for 2-way loudspeaker cabinet designs, while the U-PRO1 provides a single channel of 280 W – into 4 ohms.
The product class employs cost optimised drivers that can handle high SPL peaks but have limited long-term power handling capabilities. U-PRO’s singular dynamic power configuration delivers high, non-clipping, short power bursts of up to 500 W and peaks of up to 1000 W.
The amplifier’s residual noise floor is inaudible in the lowest ambient noise environments, such as theatres, concert halls and auditoria.
Pascal’s UREC PFC power supply technology enables universal AC mains operation, delivering consistent, regulated power worldwide and eliminating susceptibility to local power related reliability issues.
Supporting modern connectivity requirements, an auxiliary power feed is available for integrated DSP, network or analogue I/O boards. Readouts of protect/mute, temperature and clip signals are accessible for DSP and network or wireless control implementations, and I/O stages. The U-PRO Series features ultra low standby power consumption for EuP2013 and green energy star compliance, with an Auto Standby/Wake-up feature with selectable time settings.
Senior VP of business development, Peter Frentz says: “Pascal is at the forefront of understanding of and insight into the future requirements of the professional audio market, in terms of the specific application demands for self-powered amplification … Our advanced engineering of the specific performance requirements for distinct applications allows us to design a product like the U-PRO series, able to deliver optimum performance specifications for two distinct applications that demand those same specifications for different ends.”
