DAB-801 Q-Sys™ Amplifier Backup Panel

DAB-801.gif

 

The DAB-801 extends Q-Sys backup capability to include designated QSC power amplifiers and I/O frames populated with CODP4 cards. The DAB-801 adds the ability to add N+1 amplifier redundancy to any system for up to 8 channels, as well as the ability to automatically switch all DataPort connected amplifiers from a primary I/O frame to a backup I/O frame.

The DAB-801 is easily integrated into a Q-Sys based audio system. Mounted in the rear of a rack, the DAB-801 minimizes rack space consumption. AC line connection is fast and easy; an IEC-style quick-disconnect with locking bracket ensures reliable AC mains connection. A one world power supply operates on 100-240VAC, 50/60Hz. By using QSC standard HD-15 DataPort connectors and high current detachable terminal blocks, the DAB-801 provides an installation friendly connector set. Two D-Sub 15 pin connections allow direct connection to a pair of I/O frames for control and monitoring of the DAB-801. Two paging modes are available for high priority paging and are activated with either a standard contact closure or +12VDC trigger voltage. Two DAB-801 panels may be combined using the included 37 pin cable for 16 total channels of I/O frame and N+1 redundancy.
