LEA Professional has introduced the Connect Series amplifiers, with four mid-power models of IoT (Internet of Things) enabled professional amplifiers for the professional installation market. The Connect 354, Connect 704, Connect 354D and Connect 704D offer provide system designers and integrators solutions to drive large-scale installations with the capacity to support monthly recurring revenue (MRR) business models.

LEA Professional Connect Series IoT amplifiersThe Connect Series comprises two product families – the Dante Connect and Network Connect models. All four mid-power models are built with fully routable analogue inputs and the 354D and 704D have the addition of Dante and AES 67 connectivity. All four models also boast three different ways of network connection using built in WiFi Access Point, connect to the existing WiFi network, or using an LAN Ethernet connection.

With the Connect Series’ built-in AWS IoT Core, system integrators can monitor hundreds of data points from fan speed to thermal temperatures to system faults without being in the same building as the system. This enables them to identify potential issues, troubleshoot the cause, and load new parts on the truck long before any urgent maintenance is required.

‘Our mid-power models are meant to be the installers go-to amplifier when designing larger, more complex systems for applications like airports, theatres, theme-parks and stadia. These are the venues where reliability and simplicity are critically important and that is where our IoT enabled amplifiers will shine.’ says LEA Professional Founder and CEO, Blake Augsburger. ‘Installers need to know that their systems are performing perfectly during every use and this is the product that will arm them with that information and confidence.’

‘We packed these amplifiers with essential features like our Proprietary Smart Power Bridge, Universal Power Supply, direct LoZ and HiZ selectable per channel, and internal DSP – all in a one rack unit chassis,’ adds VP of Engineering, Jeremy Bules. ‘We really wanted these amps to be a great looking and slim fitting unit with the power, reliability, and simplicity that integrators know they can count on whenever they spec large-scale projects.’

The Connect Series amplifiers will begin shipping in Q3 2019. In addition, LEA Professional has released the Web App UI for control and monitoring the amplifiers. This user interface does not require a software download and works to control and monitor the amplifiers from any device, including a mobile phone, tablet or desktop computer.
