Extron now shipping new compact power amp4 November 2016
Extron has revealed the immediate availability of the XTRA Series XPA 1002-100V, a half rack 1U, convection cooled power amplifier delivering two channels of 100W rms for 100V distributed speakers.
This professional grade amplifier features a 100dB signal-to-noise ratio and 0.1% THD+N specifications. The XPA 1002-100V also features patented CDRS – Class D Ripple Suppression technology that provides a smooth, clean audio waveform and an improvement in signal fidelity over conventional Class D amplifiers. The XPA 1002-100V is housed in a half rack width metal enclosure, conserving rack space and weighing only 1.1kg. The efficient design generates very little heat and allows the amplifier to be convection cooled.
“Delivering 100W of power into a 100V line, this new XTRA series amplifier is ideal for powering high impedance distributed speakers in multi-zone applications such as presentation spaces or divisible rooms,” said Casey Hall, VP of sales and marketing for Extron. “The XPA 1002-100V makes it easy to boost amplifier channel counts two at a time, while only using half a rack width of space.”
The includes an auto power-down feature that automatically places the amplifier into standby after a period of inactivity, and consumes just 11.4W 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 feature 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.
