aispire-logoIntegrators are finding success utilizing complete low voltage systems like the AiSPIRE RPS, a Remote Power Supply System for next-generation lighting solutions that are easy to use, yet versatile enough for the savviest Technologist. Easy to conceal behind your AV Units while surface mounted on a wall inside a mechanical closet, the Class 2 RPS can be powered by any common line voltage wall receptacle.

Choose from a 4 Channel or an 8 Channel system that feeds clean low voltage DC current to power a vast selection of high lumen lighting fixtures that utilize different currents.

The AiSPIRE RPS offers up to 150-Watt and 300-Watt total load options with no minimum load requirements, providing flexibility in your lighting layout by allowing for fixture runs at long distances. The power supply can be controlled using DMX512 protocol and has a convenient RJ-45 Jack on the side of the housing to easily connect to your master control system of choice.

Each channel can be addressed on the driver for simple DMX commissioning

More advanced users can change the frequency of the Pulse Width Modulation and LED dimming curve from Linear to Logarithmic, to fine-tune your lighting system even further. Static fixture options in both 36-volt and 18-volt allow for flexibility of maximum lumen performance or additional fixtures per channel when wired in a series. 

Tunable White fixtures with the highest naturalness rating are also available, serving the most discerning clientele. Coupled with decorative and step light options, AiSPIRE offers the most comprehensive RPS system on the market today.

 The AiSPIRE Universal RPS is UL Rated as a Class II power supply so it can be utilized with any industry or legacy component rated for constant current input, providing smooth dimming without flicker or inherent noise. Designed and engineered to ensure maximum quality and reliability, the RPS is the “Go-To” low voltage powerhouse.

AtlasIED_Logo_2C-300x47AtlasIED’s Digital Audio Platform Elevates the Soundscape at Meubitrend Furniture Factory with Crystal-Clear Audio for Music, Paging and More

Factory work is notoriously noisy, but when the biggest distraction is not the loud equipment but 80 competing individual radios and speakers, something must be done. That’s why Dutch furniture makers Meubitrend turned to AtlasIED to streamline and simplify the sound in their 20,000-square-meter factory. Whether working in an office, a retail setting, a factory or at home, workers around the world often turn to music to increase their productivity and creativity. Employees at Meubitrend’s factory in The Netherlands are no exception. Listening to music was supposed to make their workday more pleasurable but all the workers’ listening devices playing at once were cluttering the soundscape of the factory, not to mention crowding the physical workspace. Instead of being melodic, the result was downright unpleasant.Meubitrand install bluetooth-remote

“People come in in the morning, and they take off their jackets, grab a cup of coffee and put on the radio,” explained Ferdi van den Berg, Marketing Director at pro audio distributor Mennegat Trading. “Meubitrend workers would use small, portable devices, which they put on their own desk or workstation, and there was music all over the place. All different radio stations, all different noises; it was a mess.”

In a wide open space, like a factory floor, such distractions can be frustrating for workers, turning their attention away from maintaining the high standard of quality that has been attached to the Meubitrend name for more than 40 years.

The company needed a centralized digital audio system that would give their workers the enjoyable work environment they desire, with clear sound and opportunities for personalization, while eliminating the grating cacophony of sound that was getting in the way of a successful workday.

Article 720, Circuits and Equipment Operating at Less Than 50 Volts, will be removed.

 

2. Cables for limited-power and fault-managed power systems are part of Article 722

Article 722 will combine cable requirements for Class 2 and Class 3 cables and introduce a new cable classification (Class 4) into a single article.

 

3. Class 2 and Class 3 circuits remain in Article 725

Only Class 2 and Class 3 power-limited circuits will remain part of Article 725.

 

4. Article 726 was created for Class 4 circuits

Class 4 circuit requirements can be found in the 2023 NEC under Article 726. Cables for Class 4 systems can be found under Article 722, along with cables for Class 2 and Class 3 systems.

 

5. Article 727 is now Article 335

Article 727 has been relocated to Article 335 so it’s considered part of Chapter 3 among the cable articles.

MA_Logo_Allantoid_Black_2021_RGBMonitor Audio IMS-4 Music Streamer

Featuring BluOS™ technology and Apple AirPlay 2, Monitor Audio’s IMS-4 is a versatile music streaming solution designed for custom install projects requiring premium sound quality.

BluOS™ technology allows the IMS-4 to stream to four separate zones and its BluOS Controller app offers complete flexibility: streaming from music services, easy access to music libraries and voice control through a smart device.

Accessed through the app, or one of the many supported integrated control systems including Control4, Crestron and RTI, multiple IMS-4 Music Streamers can be integrated with other BluOS devices to provide up to 64 zones of music. Each zone can perform together in perfect sync or play different streams to different zones. Lossless music can be played at up to 24-bit/192kHz to every room in a home network and, through BluOS, IMS-4 can deliver millions of Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) recordings, which captures and recreates the sound of the original studio performance.

Apple AirPlay 2 provides the IMS-4 with even greater flexibility as Siri allows users to request the track they would like to hear and state the room they would like it to be played in. Like BluOS, Apple AirPlay 2 lets the music be enjoyed separately or in sync throughout the home.

The IMS-4 music streamer’s discreet design (1U of rack space) ensures it can be easily incorporated into any custom installation project. Analogue and digital inputs allow the addition of a cable box or other non-network sources, and makes them available in every zone. The IMS-4 even includes a system interrupt to let doorbells and fire alarms be heard.

The IMS-4 music streamer is the perfect partner for Monitor Audio’s amplifiers, such as the IA150-8C. Each of the amplifiers are quick and easy to install and have been engineered to give a stunning performance.

Stealth LRX-85 - The Incredible Invisible Speaker!

Experience incredible, room shaking, immersive sound in an invisible speaker format like you’ve never -seen- before! The latest generation of LineaResponse high-performance, expert-grade invisible speakers – The X-Series – from Stealth Acoustics delivers sound quality, output levels, and frequency response usually reserved for only the best visible speakers. LineaResponse speakers add top-shelf audio performance to any room without visible speaker boxes or unsightly speaker grills compromising aesthetics.

Stealth’s flagship two-panel LRX-85 invisible speaker system (aka #TheInvisibleTowerSpeaker) is designed for the most critical applications in home cinema, listening rooms, and high-performance distributed audio. The high/mid frequency panel incorporates five midrange/high frequency drivers mounted in a unique dual-D’Appolito alignment for noticeable improvement in left/right panoramas and depth of sound stage. And, for incredible, invisible bass output, the low frequency panel features two high-power 8” cone woofers which drive Stealth’s FidelityGlass™ flat front radiator technology. Built in circuitry prevents excessive amplifier input from damaging the speakers for a lifetime of maintenance free use - creating peace-of-mind

Together, the two invisible panels create a seamless speaker system covering the full audio spectrum from 35Hz-18kHz. The 300 watt power handling provides the robust dynamic range required for realistic movie sound and impactful music reproduction, and the near hemispherical coverage, making every seat in the house right in the sweet-spot. No other invisible speaker solution can match the LRX-85’s patented abilities.

The LRX-85 (and all of Stealth’s range of LineaResponse invisible speakers) are installed directly into a wall or ceiling in a process similar to installing a drywall patch. Standard wall finishing techniques are all that is necessary to render the speakers completely invisible. On-site finishing options include latex paint, light wallpaper, fabrics and selected texture coats.

Stealth Acoustics - D-Tools Partner Newsletter 22.07 - LRX85 INSTL

A/V integrators love LineaResponse speakers because the impressive power handling and 170-degree field of dispersion allows them to easily integrate into any top-tier project. Designers love LineaResponse speakers because their completely invisible nature won’t interfere with the flow and style of a room. Homeowners love LineaResponse speakers because they just sound great!

wallsmart logoWall-Smart Flush Mounts Hide Wireless Access Points

Customized by WALL-SMART for a variety of best-of-brand access points from leading home networking manufacturers, the award-winning Flush Mount for Access Points takes a device that would ordinarily protrude from the ceiling and recesses it completely within the surface. The mount can be installed in any orientation and its cover can be painted to match the ceiling surface, dramatically minimizing its visual impact.

Because the mount disappears within the home design, integrators, interior designers, builders, and architects now have a better installation alternative than hiding access points in closets where coverage, range, and signal strength can be compromised or keeping access points out in the open where they conflict with the home design and decor.

Thanks to the new line of WALL-SMART mounts, access points can be located where they provide the strongest, fastest, most reliable Wi-Fi 6 signals for optimal connectivity and a better customer experience. Every detail was addressed in the design of the mount. It includes the necessary hardware for installation in both new and existing homes, ensures optimal Wi-Fi performance, promotes proper airflow and heat dissipation, and is easily accessible for service.

Comprising moisture-resistant, chemically treated MDF, WALL-SMART’s design-forward mounts install similar to that of any drywall application. The mounts recess into standard stud bays and ceiling joists for a flush appearance. Installation in new construction follows standard Level 4 drywall procedures. The mounts can be ordered directly from WALL-SMART, further simplifying the deployment process.

wisdom-audioCustomizable Line Source Array Center Channels For Large Micro-LED Displays

Introducing our new series of dedicated, customizable high-output center channels for Large Micro-LED displays. This product series provides a solution to increase audio clarity and overall performance when the center channel must be installed above or below a hard surface display. We use a proprietary wavefront curvature technic to shift the sonic image to the center of the array. This ensures the horizontal localization remains at the center of the screen for any listener seated off-center/ axis. The proprietary DSP Loudspeaker management implementation required is included using our new generation of DSP amplifiers.

Two-Fold Customization with Sage Cinema or Wisdom Series

The length of the Line Source Array Center Channel is adjustable, not to match the size of the display, but to match the width of the listening area. The performance level can also be adjusted using either the Sage Series Planar Magnetic drivers, which cover 6 Octaves of the spectrum and then transition to woofers, or the Wisdom Series, where all 8 Octaves are reproduced by planar magnetic drivers.

 

Unique Design Approach

Line source devices are typically used vertically. This is the first horizontal application providing the same power over distance (matching the vertical line source) and allowing the benefits of line source’s clarity (hearing less of the room) to be used in designing solutions around large LED displays.

Powerful Plug & Play - WyreStorm’s 8K Essentials

Keeping up with the rapid advances in technology, and in line with WyreStorm’s vision of fully compatible 8k devices across the board, WyreStorm released several new products in the Essentials lineup. The entire upcoming line is developed as a simple and affordable line of plug-and-play products for connectivity in the home, retail stores, and light commercial business environments.

The New 4x1 EXP-SW-0401-8K and 2x1 EXP-SW-0201-8K HDMI switchers, and the 1x2 EXP-SP-0102-8K HDMI splitter all support HDMI 2.1 and are compatible with the latest 8K HDMI cables from WyreStorm. Future proofing your system just became achievable.

WyreStorm’s new products fit perfectly into the 8K ecosystem supporting up to 8k@60Hz and 4k@120Hz resolutions. They are compatible with HDMI 2.1 40Gbps with Audio De-Embed, ARC & CEC Passthrough.

These next generation technologies are tailor made for residential high-end homes and light commercial applications with the need to switch between emerging 8K sources while distributing 5.1 audio via source de-embed or ARC, and distribute 8K content to 8K displays. WyreStorm’s new HDMI Switcher is a powerful plug-and-play 8K HDMI switcher. This switcher also supports DSC 1.2a pass-through, an approved method of compression in accordance to the HDMI 2.1 specification, allowing up to a 10K@120Hz signal to be transmitted losslessy.

On the other hand, WyreStorm’s new 8K 1x2 HDMI Splitter is made to distribute one 8K source to two displays. Featuring 8K60/4K120Hz resolution and compatible with HDMI 2.1 1:2, the new splitter comes with Downscaling & Audio De-Embed features.

Don’t forget, the new switchers and splitters can be paired with any of our CAB-HAOC-FRL’s to extend your 8K@60Hz signal further than a standard 8K HDMI cable!

The entire essentials line comes with a comprehensive Two-Year Warranty on all products and lifetime warranty available on all cables.
