PN102 series line arrays use advanced technology and applicationdriven engineering to bring vertical arrays closer to the ultimate reference point (reality) in demanding environments. Fully integrated
electro-acoustic systems with all elements optimized deliver superior
fidelity and coverage. Wherever the venue is appropriate for a highpowered vertical array, a RHAON empowered PN102/LAR, selfpowered PN102/LA or externally powered PNX102/LA line array is
the logical choice for demanding designers, operators and audiences.
RHAON, the Renkus-Heinz Audio Operations Network, is the first
technology to extend the power, adaptability and pristine audio performance of digital networks all the way to the loudspeaker -- and to
the listener in front of that loudspeaker. RHAON places total control
and supervision on your computer at your fingertips, no matter how
far away you are from the loudspeaker.
Digital Format: 16, 20 or 24 bit PCM; 48 or 96 kHz sample rate; selectable Network Latency.
Protection: Soft & Peak Limiting, Excursion Control &

ADVANCED LINE ARRAY TECHNOLOGY
Advanced Audio Technology
“Line Arrays” (more properly
called vertical arrays) have become popular because they can
provide consistent SPL from the
front to the rear of a deep rectangular area with a flat or gently
sloping floor.
The Isophasic Plane Wave Generator
The Renkus-Heinz Isophasic Plane Wave Generator features
path length equalization technology which has a significant
advantage over other techniques (such as reflectors and obstacle arrays) that operate over a relatively narrow bandwidth. The path length refractor generates planar wavefronts over a wide
operating band.
Arraying multiple loudspeakers vertically creates a line source with
narrow vertical dispersion: The
wavefront radiated by a properly designed line array behaves more like a
plane wave (whose output diminishes 3
dB every time the distance doubles)
than a spherical wave (which loses 6 dB each time the distance doubles).
The lower frequency limit of this line source behavior (the flattened vertical beam and slower level decay) depends on the
length of the array (the height of the array). The taller the
array, the lower in frequency the array is effective.
RENKUS-HEINZ AUDIO OPERATIONS NETWORK
RHAON is the first practical system to combine digital audio distribution
with individual loudspeaker control and supervision of self-powered loudspeaker systems. RHAON uses standard Ethernet hardware, advanced CobraNet technology and onboard DSP (Digital Signal Processing) to turn
self-powered Renkus-Heinz loudspeakers from “black boxes” into “smart
boxes that can easily be controlled from a remotely located laptop or desktop PC.
RHAON integrates loudspeakers, amplifiers, signal-processors, audio distribution and control networks into a single easy-to-manage network that sets
new performance standards in every area of audio operations. Signal connections are faster, with fewer errors. Signal processing is specific to every
loudspeaker. System setup is flexible yet powerful with user-configurable
GUI software.
RHAON puts you in total control of:
The higher frequencies
pass through the device
as “rays”.
At lower frequencies the
refractor lens represent
a closely spaced array of
diffraction slots.
AIMWARE - Array Aiming Software
Effective sound system design with line arrays is not a simple
‘point and shoot’ process and many of the design tactics learned
over the years with horizontal arrays do not work. You can’t just
aim a straight line array at the center of the audience and expect it
to work. The typical result would be a few very loud rows in the
center of the audience area with insufficient level at the front and
rear. The height, tilt angle and curvature of the array all interact to
produce the desired result (consistent sound levels from the front
to the rear).
The possibilities are almost endless. How many cabinets will be
needed to obtain the desired coverage and SPL levels? Which
array configuration will provide the best coverage and performance, a straight line array, a curved array or a “J” array? What
suspension (aiming) angle will work best?
Renkus-Heinz AimWare answers these questions and takes all
the guesswork out of Line Array design and installation. With
AimWare, you can quickly and easily decide how many Line Array
modules will be needed to achieve the desired coverage and SPL
levels, and whether they should be configured as a straight line
array, a curved array or as a “J” array. AimWare also enables you
to determine the ideal mounting height and the correct hanging
points for the array.
Hardware Options
PNPNX102/LA Series Line Arrays were
designed to be easy to use; they install
quickly in fixed installations and are
easy to set up and tear down in
portable applications.
Straight, curved and “J” arrays of up to
12 cabinets are easy to assemble and
fly. Four-cabinet ground stacks are a
snap; just roll them off the truck on their
dolly, position them and turn them on.
Rigging parameters (pick-up point locations and coverage angle settings are
provided in advance by Renkus-Heinz
AIMWARE software program, taking the
guesswork out of setup.
5/8 inch thick metal tie-bars and quickdisconnect pins are supplied with each
module. They provide easy assembly
along with metal-to-metal reliability and
a choice of splay angles.
The associated heavy-duty fly bar attaches easily to the array with the
quick-disconnect pins while providing a
wide range of pick points and aiming
angles; safely supports up to 12 cabinets.
An optional dolly handles stacks of up
to four line array modules to be easily
transported and moved about.
Setup couldn’t be easier; just roll them
off the truck on the dolly, position them,
plug them in and turn them on.
Optional IB0002 cabinet hardware allows the splay angles to be adjusted
while the cabinets are sitting on the
dolly; also meets all the stringent requirements of the German BGV flying
standard including the 10 to 1 safety
ratio.
Finish Options
– Real time digital audio distribution over standard Ethernet networks
using proven Cobranet technology to deliver multiple channels of high quality digital audio over a CAT 5 cable.
The standard finish for PNPNX102/LA Series Line Array modules is
Black. Optional finishes include white and scuff resistant black TuffTex.
Custom colors are also available.
– A powerful DSP inside each loudspeaker on the Ethernet network that
includes eight bands of of parametric EQ, high and low frequency shelving
filters, input level control, muting and up to 18 ms of delay.
Weather Resistant Options
– Monitoring of each loudspeakers critical operating parameters such as
signal clipping, amplifier output voltage and current and temperature with
automatic alert functions.
– A user friendly Windows GUI that simplifies loudspeaker management
and control.
PNPNX102/LA Series Line Array modules are also available with
weatherized woofer cones and connectors, in weather resistant fiberglass or TuffTex Elastomer finishes that are practically impervious to
the elements.
