Powersoft launches UNICA cloud-based amplifier platform

UNICA is Powersoft’s third-generation fixed-install amplifier platform. In Italian, UNICA means both Unique and Single, and this is what the manufacturer hopes the platform will bring to the audio industry: a unique and single new-generation amplifier series that is versatile enough to cover a wide range of applications, while at the same time delivering high-quality audio, reliability and efficiency. The platform has also been designed to deliver consistency across the entire family range of Powersoft amplifiers.

The UNICA range comprises three four-channel (UNICA 9K4, 12K4 and 16K4, with 9,000W, 12,000W and 16,000W respectively) and three eight-channel models (UNICA 2K8, 4K8 and 8K8, with 2,000W, 4,000W and 8,000W). In conjunction with Universo, Powersoft’s cloud-based platform, UNICA offers cloud-native connectivity and remote monitoring functions without the need for specific product registration or configuration. Cloud integration allows for the storing and sharing of projects online, keeping the amplifier’s firmware up to date, or simple integration in third-party systems through APIs.

UNICA’s power supply section has been designed to result in less power dispersed through wasted heat. The latest generation of single-stage power factor correction (PFC) and system-on-chip technology processing grant low power consumption and thermal dissipation, while Powersoft’s Smart Rails Management (SRM) allows the supply rails to adapt in real time to the required output voltage to maximise efficiency and reduce idle losses. An Eco Mode reduces consumption when engaged, resulting in cooler racks and reductions in long-time running costs.

UNICA’s architecture allows high-quality amplification through newly designed input and output sections, reportedly boasting the highest signal-to-noise ratio on any Powersoft amplifier. Based on the latest system-on-chip technology, the DSP section is operable even when only PoE+ power is available, simplifying deployment and pre-configuration operations.

In addition, because each UNICA amplifier is able to automatically archive backups on a flash memory drive situated on the rear panel, users can easily replace a faulty unit with a new one in a matter of minutes, without any configuration or product knowledge. Networking is achieved through three Ethernet ports, allowing both AoIP and control redundancy and splitting control vs AoIP traffic. Thanks to a firmware-level protocol, audio-over-IP is managed through both Dante and AES67. Compared to existing Powersoft products, UNICA also benefits from enhanced Power Sharing developed for the output section, with each output channel capable of delivering up to twice the power when loaded asymmetrically.
