AUDIO CONTROL PANELS

ment for the once-dominant KMA24-71 from King Radio.
PS Engineering designed the PAC24 from the outset as
an upgrade/replacement for the popular King audio panel.
Like the KMA24-71, the PAC24 can accommodate five
transceivers. A monaural system, the PAC24 can include a
music input. SoftMute silences music during radio traffic,
but allows music other times.
The PAC24 can easily replace these units, while adding
performance and utility enhancements such as a powerful
headset audio amplifier, the company's high-performance
IntelliVox intercom, dual audio capability in a single box,
full duplex mode for wireless operations, and expansion
capability with stereo IFE input.
Jupiter Avionics offers a full line of audio panels. Perhaps
the most intriguing is the JA94-001 dual audio controller, which is a compact, lightweight unit that incorporates
the latest technology, and is compatible with the current
industry standard interconnect. The unit will support eight
users: pilot, co-pilot and up to six passengers. By using a
Windows-based application (ProCS), configuration settings
may be changed via a 3.5 mm jack on the front panel. Field
replaceable illuminated legends (either standard white or
NVG compatible) mean that the dealer only needs to order
one version of the controller for many different mission
configurations. Visit Jupiter's website for more details on its
entire product lineup.
Trig Avionics offers two new audio panels, the TMA44
and TMA45. According to Trig, the TMA44 suits aircraft
owners looking for a great value panel that covers their
aviation requirements with a mono intercom for two to four
seats, independent control of crew and passenger audio and
two additional unswitched inputs for audio alerts. The option of playing music via two custom inputs is enhanced by
the TMA44's smooth fade feature.
The TMA45 is Trig's fully featured panel, with quality
audio, stereo music and mobile phone support via Bluetooth. The intercom can handle up to six seats. The TMA45
offers all the functionality of the TMA44 but adds Trig
Digital Noise Reduction to the package. q
