Drive For Intelligence

Lab.gruppen has introduced its new IPD (Intelligent Power Drive) Series. The ultra-compact 1RU DSP-enabled power amplifiers are available in two power configurations, IPD 1200 and IPD2400, with power outputs (at four ohms) of 2 x 600W and 2 x 1200W respectively. Both incorporate integrated DSP, networked monitoring and control via computer or iPad, a four-channel input matrix, fully configurable front panel controls with graphic display, analogue and AES3 inputs (with redundant failover) and Lab.gruppen limiters.

The DSP engine is equipped with a total of 40 real-time, multi-slope parametric EQs along with adjustable gain, input delay, output delay, and high-pass and low-pass filters adjustable to any frequency. A Software Configurable Voltage Peak Limiter (SCVPL) tailors outputs to load conditions, while a four-channel input mixer provides flexible input routing. Parameters may be stored in up to 100 user-defined presets.
