Core Rack

The ARS Core Rack is a purpose-designed amplification, signal processing and power distribution module for NeutronTM Systems.

Core Rack was built to perfectly match the power and bandpass-specific performance needs of ARS NeutronTM acoustic devices, as well as support all system drive and monitoring functions with plug-and-play connectivity.

Key Differentiators

Mains Connection

Internal power distribution requires only a single 3-phase mains connection to energize the entire rack.

Multi-Pin Cable

A single multi-pin DRV1 cable supplies up to 64 drive lines per rack, as well as real-time network monitoring of all amplifiers and power distribution units.

Settings and Protection Limiters

All NeutronTM DSP settings and protection limiters are stored in the amplification system to ensure safe and reliable operation with every use.

Our Approach

Highly Scalable Amplification System

High power density minimizes setup and connection time for large test configurations, while on-board power and signal distribution maximizes flexibility for any size of configuration. The NeutronTM system offers scalability without compromise.

Processing & Protection Built-In

Finely tuned system protection limiters and OEM factory-set processing filters ensure that connected NeutronTM devices are always optimized and protected, while both automatic and human-interface interlocks provide redundant safety protections for both personnel and hardware.

Intentionally Designed

The Core Rack furnishes the perfect hub for NeutronTM System operation. A poke-yoke approach ensures that each cable has its own unique connection point. The One Amplifier – One Cable – One NeutronTM connectivity offers error-saving simplicity.

Features and Benefits

Built-In Mains Power Connection

Internal power distribution requires only a single 3-Phase mains connection to energize the entire rack. Safety interlocks ensure proper connection and disconnection of the source and loop-through connectors.

Single Drive Cable

A single multi-pin DRV1 cable supplies up to 64 drive lines per Core Rack, as well as real-time network monitoring of all amplifiers and power distribution units.

Settings and Protection Limiters

All NeutronTM OEM factory DSP settings and protection limiters remain stored in the amplification system to ensure safe and reliable operation with every use.

Emergency Stop and Safety Limiters

Built-in, automated safety limiters protect each amplifier from power-related anomalies, while handheld safety abort switches provide additional redundant protection. The entire system can be safed with the press of a button, and no extraneous audio signals pass during a safety-related shutdown.

Electrically Efficient

The Core Rack is electrically efficient, with each amplifier running at very high mains voltage levels, as well as automatically balancing its load across three phases to decrease systemwide current draw and significantly improve thermal performance.
