Extron Electronics has released the XTRA Series XPA 1002-70V, a convection cooled power amplifier delivering two channels of 100W.
It features a 100dB signal-to-noise ratio and patented CDRS: Class D Ripple Suppression technology that provides a smooth, clean audio waveform.
The XPA 1002-70V is housed in a half rack width metal enclosure, conserving rack space and weighing only 2.5lbs (1.1kg).
Casey Hall, vice president of sales and marketing for Extron says: “The amplifier delivers 100 watts of power into a 70 volt line for powering high impedance distributed speakers, making it ideal for supporting multi-zone applications such as presentation spaces or divisible rooms.”
It includes a power-down feature that automatically places the amplifier into standby after a period of inactivity, and consumes just 10W when idle and less than 1W in standby mode.
The amplifier also has an ultra low inrush current draw to prevent power circuit overload that occurs when multiple amplifiers are switched on simultaneously. This eliminates the need for power sequencing in systems with multiple amplifiers in large centralised equipment racks, and prevents other equipment from experiencing power interruption from associated power surges.
