Dynacord IPX20:4, 4 x 5000 w multi‑channel installation DSP class‑d amplifier

Dynacord IPX20:4 series are dedicated amplifiers for fixed install applications such as e.g. stadiums, arenas, houses of worship, concert halls, theaters, and other applications that require high‑power multichannel amplifiers with sophisticated speakers processing. The integrated DSP can run either in 48 kHz or true 96 kHz including FIR Drive. Besides analog inputs also Dante and OCA via OMNEO network inputs are available. Comprehensive fallback options allow redundant scenarios. Each channel can be individually operated in low impedance mode, or 70V/100V Direct Drive mode. By bridging also 140V/200V Direct-Drive is available. By the possibility to parallel two channels and parallel‑bridge four channels, all kinds of loudspeakers can be driven. Due to the digitally controlled interleaved PFC supply reliable operation is ensured even under challenging mains supply situations. Reactive current is limited to a minimum, which reduces costs for mains installations and mains fusing in the installation. In case of idle mode or light mode operation, IPX series amplifiers automatically switch to a lower Eco Rail further reducing operating costs. In Eco Mode, the amplifiers stay fully functional and supervised. While IPX series amplifiers are fully integrated into IRIS‑Net, an OLED display on the front panel allows quick local control and supervision of the amplifier. The connectivity of IPX series amplifiers is optimized for fixed install applications.
