PS Engineering Launches High Performance Audio System
Lenoir City, TN - The long-established leader in general aviation audio control has added to their extensive list of products with the introduction of the PAC24. This audio control panel was designed from the outset as an upgrade/replacement for the popular KMA24 –71, a product manufactured by King Radio. The KMA24-71 was used extensively in dual audio panel installations for high-performance and rotary-wing aircraft. The PAC24 can easily replace these units, while adding utility and performance.
The many of enhancements include; a powerful headset audio amplifier, and high-performance IntelliVox® intercom, dual audio capability in a single box, full duplex mode for wireless operations, and expansion capability with stereo IFE input.
The audio amplifier is capable of providing 120 milliwatts (mW) into general aviation headphones. According to PS Engineering’s founder and president, "We asked helicopter pilots what they needed. They said they wanted more audio punch to get through the cockpit noise. Since they will wear earplugs under their helmets, they need a clean audio signal with lows of energy.
"Also, pilots want clear crew intercommunications and simple operation. That is what IntelliVox® is all about! We have had great success with the IntelliVox® in the loudest environments, from open door helicopters to WWII bombers. The IntelliVox® loves noise!"
Like the KMA24-71, the PAC24 can accommodate 5 transceivers. Besides the powerful
intercommunication functions, the PAC24 incorporates a split mode that will allow a single audio panel to separate two pilots on different transceivers. The pilot can transmit and receive in com 1, while the copilot position will have access to four other radios.
The PAC24 features:
A monaural system, the PAC24 can include a music input. SoftMute™ silences music during radio traffic, but allows music other times.
"The KMA24-71 was a popular system in its time, but the industry had progressed since 1978," says Gary Picou, Vice President, "we feel like this product will solve audio problems and add utility to many existing aircraft installations."
The list price for the complete package of PAC24 is $2,395, and an optional digital recording system for aircraft radio is available for $129.95. This stores the last 60 seconds of audio from the radio selected for transmit. The PAC24 has received FAA Certification under TSO C50c and units are now shipping.
Founded in 1985, PS Engineering has become a leading manufacturer of general aviation intercoms and audio control systems. With a network of over 600 dealers worldwide, the company projects continued growth and success in this industry.
