The CA Series has been developed to conserve energy and reduce the cost of ownership
Lab.gruppen’s new CA Series amplifiers, which have been Energy Star certified, have been designed to provide ‘cost-effective’ amplification for sound setups serving as PA or BGM systems in commercial installations, such as hotels, restaurants and retail outlets.
The series comprises the CA2401, CA2402, CA1201, CA1202, CA601 and CA602. The CA2401 and CA2402 are 240W versions with one and two channels, respectively. The CA1201 provides one channel and the CA1202 two channels at 120W and the CA601 and CA602 offer 60W of power over one or two channels, respectively.
The Energy Star Certified design of the CA Series has been developed to conserve energy and reduce the cost of ownership. The amplifiers offer a flexible power scheme with automatic power on/off functionality that detects whether there is an input signal, reducing consumption when there is no signal present. They are convection cooled, eliminating fan noise for silent operation.
Brackets are included for surface mounting and various rack-mounting configurations. Each amplifier can fit a half 19-inch rack or full-rack enclosure. The amplifiers can accommodate a range of applications, such as a single 8Ω speaker per channel, dual 8Ω speakers or a 4Ω load per channel, as well as a line of 70V or 100V high impedance speakers with transformer tappings, subwoofer and satellite set in 8Ω mode, or two-channel models driving two zones.
The CA amplifiers can also be used with Lab.gruppen’s new CRC-V series of wall controllers for volume control. The CRC-V controllers are equipped with a single knob for volume control with integrated illumination so they can be seen in the dark, and an RJ-45 connector for use with any Cat-5 or Cat-6 cables in a single-gang/EU wall enclosure format.
