Amplificateur avec DSP & Dante 8x250W/4 ohms

Product Documentation

> UNICA Series datasheet EN

Unica represents the next generation of cloud based amplifier platforms featuring high power density, top-shelf sound quality, and class-leading efficiency, designed to fulfill the requirements of medium to large installations with a single product family, providing a consistent user experience.

The all-new power supply section takes efficiency and world-operability to higher heights, resulting in less power dispersed through wasted heat. These performances, coupled with a clever approach to heat management, allow a drastic reduction in fan noise.

The DSP section is operable even when only PoE+ power is available, simplifying deployment and pre-configuration operations.

Thanks to a firmware-level protocol, audio over IP is managed through both Dante and AES67 protocols, and networking is achieved through 3 ethernet ports, allowing both Dante redundancy and splitting control vs AoIP traffic.

Enhanced Power Sharing capabilities have been developed for the output section, with each output channel capable of delivering up to twice the power when loaded asymmetrically.

Unica also represents a significant milestone in Powersoft’s development of IoT devices with cloud-native connectivity and remote monitoring functions without needing specific product registration or configuration.
Cloud integration allows storing and sharing projects online, keeping the amplifier’s firmware up to date, or may be used for simple integration in third-party systems through API.

  • Powersoft 3rd Generation amplification technology
    State-of-the-art processing and amplification architecture ensures maximum audio performance and reliability, allowing for advanced processing, networking, and monitoring capabilities to meet the growing needs and complexity of audio systems.
  • Networking
    Three configurable 1Gb ports allow daisy-chain as well as Dante-redundant network topologies, via two operating modes: Switched and Split-Redundant. The Split-Redundant mode allows one port dedicated to control and two ports for Dante/AES67, allowing network traffic separation. Lastly, a dedicated network-security webpage allows advanced configuration to meet stringent network-security requirements.
  • PoE input
    The PoE input allows keeping the network ports and amplifier logic circuitry powered in case of mains loss, ensuring a short wake-up time when power is restored. The Unica platform also allows monitoring of the loudspeakers and amplifier outputs circuitry without mains, when powered by PoE++.
  • Power Sharing
    Each output can deliver up to twice the rated power when asymmetrically loaded, ensuring high versatility in system design and specifying phase. Additionally, each output can drive both 70/100V and low-impedance loudspeakers down to two ohms seamlessly, without the need to configure the output mode. Output channels can be bridged and feature extensive loudspeaker diagnostic tools.
  • Front panel display
    Access to the amplifier’s status and general information is granted via the front panel LCD display, which is useful for troubleshooting, monitoring, and maintenance purposes.
  • ArmoníaPlus Software
    All models include network connectivity and onboard processing. It is possible to adjust each amplifier parameter, loading speaker presets, and tune complex systems easily thanks to Powersoft ArmoníaPlus software.
  • Eco Mode
    Automatic energy-saving functionality allows turning off each output channel independently when audio is not passing, minimizing energy consumption. Channels are individually and instantaneously turned on as soon as a signal is detected, without impacting audio performances.
  • Easy Swap
    Game-changing functionality allows replacing an amplifier quickly, without product-specific knowledge, and independent of system size and complexity. This is possible thanks to Unica’s ability to store backups on a local USB flash memory drive and restore the backup to a replacement amplifier by simply inserting the USB drive and following the procedure on the front-panel display.
  • Universo Cloud
    The cloud-native connectivity allows remote monitoring of the amplifier status from any device, anywhere in the world, via Powersoft’s cloud platform Universo.
