Infocomm 2007 – Extron Premieres New ENERGY STAR® Qualified, Professional Grade Audio Power Amplifiers

22 07 2007

Extron Electronics announced the HPA 502 and HPA 1001-70V Half Rack Width Power Amplifiers. These professional grade, highly efficient 100 watt amplifiers feature ENERGY STAR qualified designs to help meet green building requirements. They feature a highly efficient Class D design with patented CDRS™ – Class D Ripple Suppression technology from Extron that nearly eliminates EMI emissions and interference with wireless A/V equipment. The HPA 502 and HPA 1001-70V also deliver exceptional performance with more than 100 dB signal-to-noise ratio, unweighted and THD + noise of less than 0.05%. With a compact enclosure, these amplifiers are ideal for installation in racks and lecterns with very limited ventilation, and are convection cooled without the need for fans. The HPA 502 is a two-channel model, which delivers 50 watts rms per channel into 4 or 8 ohms. The HPA 1001-70V is a mono amplifier with 100 watts rms output for 70 volt distributed speaker systems. Both amplifiers are ideal for classrooms, meeting rooms, boardrooms, and commercial environments.

“Our new HPA Series are the first rack-mountable, ENERGY STAR qualified audio power amplifiers,” says Lee Dodson, Vice President of Marketing for Extron. “Audio amplifiers are one of the largest power consumers in an A/V system and we are excited to lead the way with products designed for ‘Green’ A/V systems.”The HPA 502 and HPA 1001-70V consume just 8 watts when idle and less than one watt in standby mode. The HPA 502 and HPA 1001-70V enter into standby after one hour of inactivity, or when the standby port is triggered, and turn on instantly whenever an input signal is sensed. Additionally, both amplifiers are plenum-rated, allowing for a concealed installation above a drop ceiling to prevent theft while providing convenient placement of A/V equipment.
