Abitana have launched a brand new audio amplifier that can be mounted on DIN-rail. Its small size means it can be used in wall and ceiling cavities, making it idea for smart home installs. The 2x20W RMS stereo Class D output can be used as part of a multi-room set-up or controlled individually with a potentiometer.
As part of abitana’s Smart Music range, this new amplifier offers a lot of extra application scenarios. Beside that installation has been simplified much thanks to a multifunctional RJ45 on top of the module. The device can be connected to either a ABI-MM1002S05 Multiroom Multisource Module, or directly to a MM1000Sxx Radio & &Control Module (RCM).
The gain and mute of the amplifier can be controlled by either a Smart Music RCM or a remote volume control potentiometer (ABI-MM1005SSI or ABI-MM1005SWH) via the topmounted RJ45, either by a 0-10V home automation control signal on a dedicated jack.
The ABI-MM1001S40 replaces the current amplifiers ABI-MM1001S06 and ABI-MM1001S22 and beats its predecessors on all areas. Thanks to the DIN-rail mount and plug and plug installation technique the amplifier installs in seconds. The small size guarantees efficient use of space in the patch cabinet and allows easy installation in a ceiling cavity wall.”
