Application
The DV1.0 is available as a two channel ACCoupled, controlled voltage amplifier or as a
DC-Coupled, single-channel amplifier. The
DV1.0 is idea for reactive loads and also has
applications in both pulse and continuous duty
applications.
DV1.0 PWM Industrial Amplifier

Front Panel Controls and Indicators
Fault Indicator: Red LED, one per channel, flashes when the
amplifier output channel has stopped operating.
Thermal Indicator: Red LED, one per channel, illuminates when
the channel has shut down or is very near shutting down because of
thermal stress or overload.
Clip Indicator: Red LED, one per channel, illuminates when the
channel’s output signal reaches the onset of audible clipping. The
Clip Indicator will also illuminate during Thermal Level Control (TLC)
limiting or when the input compressor/limiter is protecting the
amplifier from input overload.
Signal Indicators: Three green LEDs per channel indicate the
amplifier’s input and output signal levels.
Signal: input signal is above –40 dBu.“–20 dB: amplifier output is 20
dB below clipping.“–10 dB: amplifier output is 10 dB below“clipping
Ready Indicator: Green LED, one per channel, illuminates when
the channel is initialized and ready to produce audio output.
Power Indicator: Blue LED indicates amplifier has been turned on
and AC power is available. The LED will flash when the AC line
voltage is 15% above or 25% below the nominal rated value.
Bridge Mode Indicator: Yellow LED illuminates when the rear-panel
Mode Switch is set to the “Bridge” position.

Protection Systems
Thermal Level Control (TLC): If an amplifier channel starts to overheat, the TLC system will engage the
input compressor. By compressing the input, the amplifier will not generate as much heat and will have a
chance to cool down.
Junction Temperature Simulation (JTS): In the DV1.0, if excess power is demanded, JTS circuitry
limits the drive level of the output devices to a safe range, preventing damage.
Fault: The amplifier will light the Fault LED if the amplifier output stage stops operating.
AC Under/Over Voltage Protection: If the AC line voltage drops below 25% or rises above 15% of the
nominal operating voltage of the amplifier, the amplifier’s power supply turns off and the blue Power LED
flashes. The amplifier will turn back on when the AC line voltage returns to safe operating levels.
Circuit Breaker: This breaker protects the amplifier from excessive AC current draw.
Inrush Limiting: A soft-start circuit in the power supply minimizes the amplifier’s current draw during
power-on.
