The 2 x 240 Watt dual-channel Amplifier offers an optimal solution for commercial and industrial settings seeking top-quality distributed audio while emphasizing power conservation and reduced operational expenses. It excels in delivering high-quality sound across both Low-Z (4/8 Ohm) and High-Z (70/100 V) loudspeaker configurations, providing unparalleled flexibility on each channel. With its user-friendly design, the FAD2402 is straightforward to install and operate, catering to individuals without technical expertise. Tailored ideally for various venues such as bars, restaurants, retail spaces, hotels, corporate environments, educational institutions, or any location requiring background music or a dependable public address system, the FAD2402 stands as a versatile and reliable audio solution.

Dante * Audio Connectivity

Dante technology revolutionizes traditional point-to-point analog and digital connections by utilizing a standard IP network. This approach ensures the delivery of fully lossless audio, accommodates extensive channel counts, and provides near-limitless signal routing flexibility, all while maintaining remarkable ease in deployment and operation. Facilitating the management of Dante networks, Dante Domain Manager (DDM) serves as network management software. It incorporates crucial features like user authentication, role-based security protocols, and auditing capabilities for Dante networks. Additionally, it seamlessly facilitates the expansion of Dante systems across diverse network infrastructures. Notably, the FAD2402 is fully compatible and primed for integration with Dante Domain Manager (DDM). This readiness ensures its seamless incorporation into Dante networks, leveraging enhanced network management capabilities, security measures, and scalability provided by DDM.

Energy Star * Certified

The FAD2402 stands out not just for its direct drive constant power technology, delivering exceptional audio performance and reliability, but also for its superior energy efficiency. Its Energy Star * certification is a testament to this efficiency, consuming notably less mains power compared to other competing models. This groundbreaking technology enables the creation of robust amplifier systems that not only contribute to significant savings on electricity bills but also reduce installation requirements and costs for the main supply. Its efficiency might even allow installation using existing mains infrastructure, translating into substantial savings in both installation and ongoing operational expenses. Moreover, this environmentally conscious approach contributes to reducing the ecological footprint, aligning with sustainability goals.

Easy to Install

The FAD2402 offers versatile placement options to suit various settings. It comes equipped with rubber feet, enabling placement on desks, shelves, or any clear surface without the need for additional installation measures. Additionally, it includes optional rack mounting hardware, facilitating the housing and protection of one or multiple units within an enclosure. This versatility extends to the mounting possibilities; a single product can fit into a half 19" rack or a full rack enclosure. Moreover, two amplifiers can be effortlessly mounted side-by-side within a single rack space, maximizing space utilization. The unit also includes brackets for alternative mounting options such as wall installation or mounting beneath a table or shelf, providing diverse placement choices to accommodate different spatial requirements and preferences.

Automatic Power On/Off

The FAD2402 boasts a flexible power scheme that intelligently manages power consumption based on the presence of an input signal. This feature ensures seamless and automatic power on/off operations, optimizing energy usage. Setting up an energy-efficient and user-friendly amplifier system is a breeze with minimal configuration needed. In scenarios where the FAD2402 is powered on but remains idle without an input signal for 20 minutes, the system intelligently enters sleep mode, significantly reducing power consumption. As soon as the Auto Ramp circuit detects an incoming signal, the system promptly powers on, resuming normal operation. Additionally, users have the convenience of instantly toggling the amplifier into standby mode or waking it up via the front panel power button, offering greater control and flexibility over its power state.

Tamperproof Gain Controls

FAD2402’s input gain controls are placed on the rear panel for tamperproof operation. Available for adjustment – but requires a tool when making changes.

Easy to Hook Up

For connecting a balanced source such as a mixer or audio processor, a standard 3-pin Euroblock Input socket is provided. Loudspeaker Output is provided in the form of a standard 2-pin Euroblock socket.

Output Configuration

Adjacent to the rear panel Euroblock output connector, intuitive configuration options for the flexible output channels are facilitated through dipswitches. These switches enable seamless selection between 100 V, 70 V, 8 Ω, or 4 Ω operation, effectively determining both the maximum output voltage and the device's gain settings. Additionally, an independent control is available to activate the integrated high-pass filter. Utilizing these controls becomes particularly crucial for constant voltage systems, helping prevent saturation issues in transformer-enabled loudspeakers and ensuring the integrity of sound output. The engaged high-pass filter plays a vital role in maintaining optimal audio quality across the configured output channels.

Expandable Remote Control

The RJ45 receptacle on the rear panel opens up a broad range of remote control options, including the CRC-V Series of wall controllers and a stylish tabletop controller, the LAB.LEVEL. All can be interconnected via inexpensive and readily available Ethernet cabling.

System Scalability

Commercial installations often exhibit diverse scopes and evolve over time. The FAD2402 belongs to a product family offering both single and dual-zone options, ideal for expanding systems to any scale. Its individual zone volume controls and remote control features make it an excellent foundational component for a dynamic and adaptable system solution. The versatility of the FAD2402, combined with its ability to cater to individual zones and facilitate remote control, enables seamless integration into evolving and expanding setups. This adaptability allows it to serve as a fundamental building block for scalable solutions, ensuring compatibility and efficiency as systems grow and requirements change.

Real-World Energy Savings

The FAD2402, a 2 X 60Watt Commercial Amplifier, simplifies the delivery of top-notch music and announcements to business and industrial settings. Its seamless integration and user-friendly operation streamline the audio experience. Additionally, boasting features like the Auto Ramp and groundbreaking direct drive constant power technology, this Energy Star-certified amplifier is engineered for exceptional energy efficiency. The savings it generates can swiftly offset its initial cost, making it a worthwhile investment for any environment.
