PS Engineering, Inc- New PAC45 Audio Controller

Postby gledbetter » Wed Aug 1 2018, 19:02

PAC45 DSP audio controllers that are plug n play with NAT AMS series.

What is HRTF (MultiTalker™-3D Audio)?

For the special mission pilots, hearing multiple radios at the same time is just part of the job and differentiating specific radio calls has not be an easy task…until now.
MultiTalker™, a patented technology developed by the Wright Patterson Air Force and exclusively licensed to PS Engineering Inc, allows the pilot (and crew) to take advantage of what is sometimes referred to as the "Cocktail Party Effect". In a room crowded with many different conversations, our brain has this unique ability to filter out the un-important conversations while allowing the person to pay attention to the conversation that is.

MultiTalker™ offers this unique capability to the special mission pilot, the ability to pay attention to the radio call that is important. MultiTalker™ allows the pilot to place 6 individual coms radio traffic, into nine unique positions within a stereo headset.

What is ACK (Acknowledge) for Aural Alerts?

The ability to pre-record audio alerts makes this audio controller an integral tool to help hear alerts that could be drowned out by the din of the cockpit environment. There are no computers required to configure the PAC45 or to record the 3 audio alerts, it's all done from the front panel, so it makes it easy to configure.
Select ACK will acknowledge the message was heard by the crew members (pilot or copilot). Observer intercom stations will not hear the aural alerts.

What is ICS (Intercom System) 7 Place Intercom? No special intercom isolation boxes/switches

The auto-squelch stereo intercom system (also front panel selectable for PTT-ICS) capable of providing 100 milliwatts (mW) into the aviation headsets/helmets. The five passengers will be connected to the observer control head.
The ICS selector switch allows for:
ISO: No intercom is active; control head is connected directly to the comms. Transmitting and receiving the audios that are selected. CALL feature will be active for the observer intercom seats
ALL: Intercom is active for all 7 headset locations. All headsets hearing comms & intercom channels.
CRW: Pilot & copilot intercom is isolated from the five intercom stations at the observer location. CALL feature will be active for the observer intercom seats

* NAT AMS Series pin compatibility with a 1.88" DZUS mount

Looks like a nice piece of kit.
