Pascal introduces new U-PRO Series amplifier

Pascal A/S has announced the launch of its new U-PRO Series amplifier module. Its design is uniquely optimized for self-powered portable PA systems and ultra-compact, high SPL loudspeakers for fixed installation applications; offering both single and asymmetrically rated 2-way power channels.

The U-PRO series feature unique dynamic power ratings due to its extremely high voltage rails, relative to its RMS power output. With RMS ratings of 280 W it can deliver ultra-short bursts of 500 W RMS or 1000 W peak power. Its performance characteristics are well suited for lightweight portable PA, ultra-compact and high output fixed install cabinet designs.

The U-PRO2 has a 280 W + 100 W two channel asymmetrical power rating for 2-way loudspeaker cabinet designs while the U-PRO1 provides a single channel of 280 W - into 4 ohms. At just 38 x 70 x 177 mm / 1.5 x 2.5 x 7.0 in, the U-PRO module has the smallest form factor, lowest profile and highest power density of any comparable product of this type.

The U-PRO’s performance characteristics uniquely match the power requirements for cost effective and high SPL self-powered portable PA. Its singular dynamic power configuration delivers high, non-clipping and short power bursts of up to 500 W and peaks of up to 1000 W.

In both BGM and ancillary fixed install applications, the U-PRO is specified to meet the growing demand for self-powered, ultra-compact, visually unobtrusive and high output loudspeaker designs. The high dynamic power ratings of the U-PRO, relative to its ultra-compact form factor and coupled with its low residual noise are unique in a design of such high sonic quality.

Supporting modern connectivity requirements, an auxiliary power feed is available for integrated DSP, network or analog I/O boards. Readouts of protect/mute, temperature and clip signals are accessible for DSP and network or wireless control implementations and I/O stages. The U-PRO series feature ultra low standby power consumption for EuP2013 and green energy star compliance with an Auto Standby/Wake-up feature with selectable time settings, making the module ready to handle future regulatory requirements.

Speaking on the launch of U-PRO Series, Peter Frentz, Senior VP of Business Development, Pascal said, “Pascal is at the forefront of understanding and insight into, the future requirements of the professional audio market in terms of the specific application demands for self-powered amplification. Our dedicated designs deliver a performance premium not available from general-purpose and commodity products. Our advanced engineering of the specific performance requirements for distinct applications allow us to design a product like the U-PRO series, able to deliver optimum performance specifications for two distinct applications.”
