AV-1500 DSP Power Amplifier

INTRODUCTION:
The AV-1500 is a new lightweight Power Amplifier that combines enormous power output with light-weighting
and audio surveillance. The AV-1500 combines perfectly with the Ates concept for Voice-Evacuation
systems. Its networking and digital signal processing makes it an ideal product for heavy-duty audio
performance where Live-Music applications are to be combined with live-safety systems.

Thats what we call flexibility!


No matter what the requirements are, the integrated powerful digital signal processor (DSP) and controller
stands for a trouble-free and ease of adjustment to any acoustical environment. Wear-free digital
potentiometers, sequential remote power on, A-live contact and line monitoring makes it the right choice for
any fixed installation and gives the user full supervision.

FEATURING:
Dual-channel DSP-amplifier at max. 2 Ohm operation load. Class-H, extremely lightweight (only 14kg), power
pack. Build in 2HE designer housing, operation and remote control via laptop. Integral Audio DSP for each
amplifier channel with 2x10 band EQ (fully programmable), delay, variable high/low pass filter and dynamic
processor. Ideal for both, mobile and fixed install applications. Wear-free digital potentiometers for volume
control are located on the back. Temperature-controlled fans and noise gate.
Important features for system integration as per EN 60849 / DIN 0828 Regulations on Places of Assembly
(alarm sound systems). Sequential remote activation via control voltage, fault message contact for
simultaneous evaluation of the operating status, monitoring and intelligent evaluation of all important device
parameters.
Dimensions are 2 HE / 19 483 x 88 x 454 mm.

AV-1500 DSP Power Amplifier

SYSTEM MONITORING:
The AV Series amplifiers are equipped with the A live contact. The contact is located on the rear panel of
the amplifier and is a GPI contact closure that indicates the general operation mode of the amplifier. It is
designed as a 3-pole contact closure that can be used in the open mode or the closed mode:
A live contact active: indicates that the amplifier is working in normal conditions A live contact inactive:
indicates that the amplifier is not working properly: it is shut down by the protection circuit, overheated etc. or
AC power cord is unplugged.
This contact closure is the simplest form of remote system monitoring of the amplifier without establishing a
remote control network and provides easy system surveillance at a very economically level. The A live
contact is also used to indicate any signal level faults on the incoming audio that carries the 18 or 20 kHz
surveillance tone coming from The Ates IDA system. The dynamic impedance surveillance software, surveys
the loudspeaker lines and the loudspeaker drivers. Any failure will also activate the Alive contact. The output
can also be integrated into a media control network as a GPI contact closure to trigger eventually needed
other control procedures like backup amplifier (spare amplifier) switching, etc.
CHANNEL SURVEILLANCE:
The AV-1500 amplifiers monitor input/output values every switched-on channel. All of the vital values are
available via the RS-485 interface. Av-1500 monitors:

Input level
Output peak voltage
Load impedance (Output signal at least 30dB under nominal power must be [resent)
Output peak current
Output power
Headroom
Heatsink temperature

Detected are: Protect, Clip, Output Open and Output Short conditions. When the external control is
connected, Open/Short threshold in ohms can be defined by user. Via RS485 interface vital monitor/detectors
are available protect, temperature, load impedance.
