PA-5000 Amplifier Rack

Enhance Your Capabilities with the PA-5000 Amplifier for WAS-5000 Wide Band Acoustic Transducer

Adaptability and next-level technology make the PA-5000 a valuable asset to your testing facility. It can be configured to power either one or two WAS-5000 transducers from a single rack. When paired with a CU-5000 Cooling unit and a noise source, the PA-5000 completes the system needed to operate the WAS-5000.

NTS can provide design, build, and construction management for a complete acoustic facility.

In amplifying an acoustic noise signal to the WAS-5000 transducer, the PA-5000 receives an input signal from a noise source and crisply amplifies it to the transducer. The source of the signal can be white noise source, a sine wave, or other source, depending on your preference or requirements.

PA-5000: Characterized by Advanced Technology

The PA-5000’s digital gradient amplifier is specifically designed for use in precision voice-coil actuator control systems. It accepts a differential input signal of ±5 VDC, amplifies with a fixed gain of 40V/V, and provides a 100 Amp RMS, 200 Amp peak pulse width modulated signal (102kHz, ±7%). The PA-5000 also features:

  • Sequencing of rack operation and control system interlocks with the CU-5000 cooling unit through a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC).
  • Visual status of interlocks through indicator lights and optional Human Machine Interface (HMI, or touch screen), which is recommended on one of the CU-5000 racks for manual control and maintenance.
  • Communication with system components via Ethernet IP industrial protocol.
