the designs we have created for our certified aircraft, PS Engineering designed an audio panel
with plenty of capability but at an incredibly low price. This panel was
designed specifically for the experimental and LSA owners.
Without the traditional functions such as Marker
Beacon Receiver, Speaker Amplifier, as well as avoiding the costs of
certification, the PMA5000EX provides an unprecedented level of
price/performance for the homebuilt.
list of capabilities:
automatic VOX system with selectable "Extreme Noise Capability"
telephone input with "DuTel" distribution
Mode allows automatic muting of non-primary radio
panel utility jack for phone, iPod, or for unswitched audio warnings
mode for dual audio panel capability
- Differential, hi-fidelity stereo music source inputs (no ground loop
- Isolation modes - Pilot Isolate, All, and Crew
- music mute modes: Mute On, Mute Off, Radio Mute, Intercom Mute
- unswitched inputs, with front panel unswitched input
front panel music volume control
music distribution for passengers
- Front panel switched inputs (Aux 1 and 2) with selectable 60 second
(Radio Master Mute) eliminates constant back ground noise from radio static
our IntelliVox® hi-fi stereo intercom, our world-renown automatic VOX will
make inter-cockpit communications completely seamless. And with two
types of music distribution, four kinds of music muting, and with "Softmute"™
technology, the PMA5000EX provides the flexibility that homebuilders are seeking
that some experimental aircraft have a significantly higher cabin cockpit din
than others,, the PMA5000EX
IntelliVox® offers the opportunity for the pilot to select a special "Extreme
Noise Capability Mode" (by way of internal switch selection) in the unlikely
event that VOX triggers prematurely. This system has been proven in
our PMA8000B series.
panel volume control of the music input makes changing the entertainment volume
level as easy as pushing up or down on the dedicated music buttons.
The pilot can select
between two music distribution modes, allowing flexibility of how music input
number 2 is distributed to the passengers. Select either standard that sends
music 1 to the Crew and music 2 Passengers, or select the alternate which will
send music 1 to all headsets in ALL mode and when the Crew mode is selected,
music 2 automatically turns on
for the passengers.
also did something a bit different with the two Switched inputs (Aux 1 and Aux
2). While these two switched audios can be turned on and off like traditional
switched inputs, we added the capability to take the audio off-line for 60
seconds. This function is useful in cases where the audio is an alert that has
been recognized, but becomes annoying. After 60 seconds, the audio is
new "Monitor" (Mon) mode has been added. When selected, the
audio from the Com receiver that is not selected for transmit will
automatically mute when the selected primary radio audio becomes active. In this way, the pilot may listen to
AWOS on Com 2, but
prevents the AWOS audio from interfering with the primary Com audio which is
PMA5000EX front panel utility jack is a convenient way to
telephone, iPod, or other audio alert
device. When a cellular phone is connected and the pilot goes on line the
"Du-tel"™ system goes to work. Various combinations of
passengers/crew can be placed on the phone, depending upon the ISO, ALL and Crew
intercom modes. Best of all, the pilot will continue to be able to receive and transmit on the selected
COM, for seamless integration in the cockpit. (Cellular telephone use in flight is not permitted, but remains a convenient and safe way to contact air-traffic control or a weather briefer while on the ground.)
Direct can provide an excellent alternative to
cell phones by using satellites to provide world wide phone coverage. To learn
