IRIS Version 1.0 software for controlling and monitoring the company’s Precision Series DSP-Controlled Amplifiers introduces improved dialogs, user-control panels, loudspeaker tunings and two demo projects.

The software allows supervision and control of all loudspeakers and amplifiers connected to the network. The unique system-check can be run locally or via remote includes a real-time impedance check for each connected loudspeaker and shows within minutes if the entire system is performing as expected. IRIS diagnostic monitoring capabilities also reveal minor faults of any loudspeaker components or cabling.

IRIS is designed to be fully modular. Each control element may be accessed separately. For user enhancement, a system could be customized for 32 layers of different control and supervision information. Another optional allows a project to be set up with password-protected access. Monitoring elements include impedance, voltage, I/O levels, temperature, faults, network status, etc.

Central supervision and control of all amplifiers and connected loudspeakers is achieved in real time with state-of-the-art signal processing (filter, level, delay, dynamic) with a dynamic range of 115 dB.

Featuring a range of amplifiers for both high- and low-impedance applications, a number of models are offered. The P3000RL, the flagship of the series, provides 2x1,300 watts into 4 ohms and 2x1,800W into 2 ohms. The DSP version of the P3000 features all Speakon NL4 connectors on loudspeaker outs. The P1200RL, which offers 2x600W into 4 ohms and 2x850W into 2 ohms, features barrier strip loudspeaker connectors. The P900RL features 2x450W into 4 ohms and 2x650W into 2 ohms, is dedicated for high-frequency drive in multi-way systems and offers barrier strip loudspeaker connections. The P1200RT has a high-impedance output for 100/70-volt lines with 2x590 watts and features barrier strip loudspeaker connectors. The dynamic limiter circuit includes the output transformers and limits THD to 1% maximum. Finally, the P900RT has high-impedance output for 100/70-volt lines with 2x410 watts and features barrier strip loudspeaker connections.
