Since the PMA450A is a slide-in replacement for the GMA340, PMA8000B, PMA8000BT, and PMA450, Avionics Source makes trading-up as simple as 1-2-3:
1. Buy a PMA450A online. Purchase price reflects trade-in value at time of purchase, and covers shipping.
2. Slide your new PMA450A in to your existing tray and complete a minor logbook entry. (We always advise an A&P performs this service).
3. Mail us your trade-in using the provided UPS return label.
The PMA450A is the second generation digitally based audio panel that is based upon a DSP (Digital Signal Processor). The licensed patented technology from the United States Air Force that was designed for the fighter pilot, who is inundated with multiple audio signals, is now available to the GA pilots.
Another leap forward is PS Engineering’s improved and unique graphical user interface. Using OLED technology, the larger display not only makes viewing the display from any angel, it is larger to make use of the graphics capability of the display.
The new USB – C standard also bring more power to the pilot. This USB is for powering devices up to 15 Watts, 33 % more powerful than was available before.
IntelliAudio® gives the pilot the capability to pay attention to the radio that is important to their flight at any one instant in time. Consider the Com 1 coming from the 10 O’clock position while Com 2 is coming from the 2 O’clock position, just like being at a cocktail party, you are able to pay attention to the person who is telling you something important while ignoring the other conversations that aren’t.
The 3 Soft-key user interface is unprecedented for audio control panels. With more and more capability provided by our audio panels, we found it necessary to make the access to these functions easier. If you can read English (universal language of pilots) you’ll be able to get all of the capability from the PMA450A without ever having to open up the User’s Guide.
