AUDIO PANELS
Why so many audio panels?
Our sole mission is to invent better ways for pilots to communicate. It’s no wonder
why PS Engineering has brought more audio control innovations to GA than any other
company...period.
In 1985, two electrical engineers, one a Pilot the other a circuit
designer, found themselves wondering when the revolution would
come to the field of audio control. At the time, aircraft intercoms
and audio panels had seen virtually no improvement in over a
decade. With new digital circuitry and technologies, they believed it
was time for the revolution to begin.
Certified
PAR200A – World’s first audio selector panel that functions as a hi-fi stereo intercom
with Bluetooth® and controls a remote mounted Com radio.

Because of our many years of experience in designing and manufacturing
audio control systems, many other avionics manufacturers have relied on
PS Engineering to design and build their audio panels to complete their avionics suite. Considering the
entire fleet of private aircraft (GA, LSA, Experimental) it’s wouldn’t be surprising to think that more than half
of those airplanes have one type or another of a PS Engineering manufactured product.
If these two guys hadn’t founded PS Engineering, the community
of pilots would probably still be waiting for the revolution to begin.
PS Engineering has been the source for virtually every major
cockpit audio innovation in the field of audio panels:
to provide BlueTooth® integration
n First to implement the USAF patented technology Patent no.
7,391,877
®
n First to provide true hands-free VOX system, the IntelliVox
Patent no. 6,493,450
n First to provide individually adjustable VOX circuitry
n First to use digital signal processing to record aircraft radio for
playback in the cockpit, known as the IRS
n First to provide an integrated aural warning system into an
audio panel
n First to provide Swap capability, Patent no. 5,903,227; 6,160,496
n First to fully integrate music with Soft Mute technology,
allowing flexible music control. Patent no. 4,941,187
n First to introduce an FAA approved stereo audio panel with
intercom and marker beacons, all in the same unit
n First to introduce AMP™, (Active Microphone Processor) a
system that removes noise from the microphone.
The reason we designed all these audio panels wasn’t to confuse our customers;
but rather to provide solutions to match our customers’ needs. We recognized
early on that one size does not fit all.
n First
PMA4000 – A small form-factor was the design goal for this little jewel. Capable of
being panel mounted like an intercom or in a 2¼” round instrument hole, the PMA4000
also provides a four-place mono intercom with IntelliVox® and speaker amplifier.
PMA6000B – Low cost solution. This is the only audio panel we know that includes an
intercom and a marker beacon receiver selling for less than $1095.
PMA7000 Series – Pin-compatible to the KMA24, these audio panels incorporate
IntelliVox® and enhanced capabilities such as full duplex wireless telephone, and
audiophile stereo music inputs. Three systems to choose from.
PMA8000 Series – Designed as plug-and-play with the GARMIN* GMA340, this audio
panel includes a complete feature set with digital recorder, front panel configuration
control, and monitor mode. PAC24 – This specialty audio panel is suitable for special mission use, such as police/
rescue/fire patrol, and includes provisions for observer position. Single and dual systems
available.
RV-10
Experimental
PDA360EX – The fundamental advantage of the PDA360EX over conventional audio panels for the homebuilt aircraft is that is uses
the same technology as its big brother, the PMA450.
PMA5000EX – This “Experimental Only” audio panel has the capabilities homebuilders demand as well as some new innovations.
Price/Performance was the goal and this panel delivers in both sectors. The PMA5000EX will find itself operating comfortably from
Light Sport Aircraft to RVs.
King Air
Using the latest technologies and the highest level of quality control, PS Engineering manufactures all of its products
in the United States, to the most exacting standards. MADE IN THE USA means something to us.
What sets PS Engineering apart from our competition is that we listen.
Good ideas and PS Engineering go hand in hand. We travel around the country, to air shows and avionics shops,
asking questions on how we can improve our systems. We aim to be the most approachable, most responsive avionics
manufacturer in the world.
When you see innovation in audio, chances are, it is from PS Engineering.
PMA450 – A slide-in replacement for the GARMIN* GMA340 and the PMA8000 series,
this Digital Audio Selector Panel provides IntelliAudio® Dimensional Sound, 6-place
IntelliVox® and hi-fi stereo with Bluetooth® interface. IntelliVox®
IntelliAudio®
ProSupport™
PS Engineering’s revolutionary IntelliVox® intercom
squelch protocol harnesses the computational
power of microprocessors, and eliminates
complicated squelch adjustments. In addition, by
using independent, automatic microphone squelch
circuits, extraneous cabin noise is minimized.
IntelliVox® means that the system will always be
optimized, tailoring itself for different microphones,
as well as variations in voice and sound levels in the
cockpit. With IntelliVox® you’ll have seamless and
clear communications.
Using patented technology licensed from the Air
Force Research Laboratory at Wright Patterson
AFB, IntelliAudio® places multiple audio sources
in positions within stereo headsets. These
dimensional sound locations allow the Pilot
to more easily focus on a particular radio
conversation of interest.
All of our audio panels include PS Engineering’s
ProSupport Warranty. Depending upon the
audio panel installed, the unit will come with
either a 1, 2, or 3 year guarantee that if the unit
was installed by an authorized PS Engineering
Dealer or a custom wire harness was purchased
from PS Engineering, a warranty exchange unit
will be shipped the same day of the issuance of
an RMA.

The PAR200A is an FAA Approved system that combines an audio control panel,
4-place stereo IntelliVox® intercom with Bluetooth®, and a remote mounted,
760-channel VHF aviation communications transceiver.
This system saves cockpit space, weight, and money over stand-alone independent
systems while providing the most sought after functionality.
The PAR200A is attractive for the aircraft that is used primarily for VFR missions
or as an audio panel/back-up com to more advanced systems. The elimination of
one panel mounted radio saves valuable panel space.
Seamless integration between the audio panel and the radio was the goal for
the best user experience possible, while keeping the system costs to a minimum.
The right half of the PAR200A is dedicated to the communication radio, with
an easy to read LCD display that shows the frequencies, which are controlled
through a concentric knob. This radio has active and standby frequencies, and
a standby frequency monitor mode that permits listening to both active and
standby frequencies.
The Pilot can store up to 5 frequencies in non-volatile memory so he can easily
tune to his frequently used channels. The radio also has autosquelch, so you will
always have optimal radio sensitivity.
The left half controls the audio panel for radio selection, intercom and music
volume, intercom modes, and multiple music mute mode control. The PAR200A
has two independent music inputs. Independent power supplies assure operation
in failsafe on the audio panel; the VHF radio can still be used.
The PAR200A can be configured as stand alone, as COM 1, or as COM 2. This
provides flexibility to allow the aircraft owner to decide if a second radio will be
used and in what position. The PAR200A includes a cockpit speaker amplifier for
additional flexibility.
An integrated Bluetooth® system allows the PAR200A to interface with cellular
telephones, giving the aircraft occupants ready access to their telephones. In
addition, the Bluetooth® will stream music from compatible devices like iPads,
and smart phones.
The PMA450 begins our journey into the digital-audio domain. Our company
is known as the source of the vast majority of innovations in audio control
systems for General Aviation and the PMA450 opens up completely new
dimensions for audio panels with valuable features and an intuitive interface.
CHECKLIST OF FEATURES:
Although the PMA450 has a superset of the capabilities of the PMA8000BT,
Pilot’s access to new advanced features is significantly more intuitive. Pilots
who currently are flying with the PMA8000BT will have all of the advantages
of their current system along with all of the new capabilities of the PMA450.
IntelliAudio® is a patented technology that we have licensed from the United
States Air Force. Originally designed for fighter pilots who are inundated with
multiple types of audio signals, the PMA450 now brings this technology to
GA Pilots.
For instance, when wearing stereo headsets, Com 1 will appear to come from
the Pilot’s 10 o’clock position while Com 2 will appear to come from the
2 o’clock position. Because the method used to create this audio environment
not only makes it possible for the Pilot to hear both radios at the same time,
it allows the brain to more easily discern one com from the other. With
IntelliAudio®’s digital audio processing, the radio and intercom audio is
incredibly clean, clear and crisp.
Our highly acclaimed patented automatic VOX (IntelliVox®) is also an integral
part of the intercom system of the PMA450, completely eliminating manual
intercom squelch adjustments.
Through the use of 3 soft-keys and a graphic display, the Pilot visualizes the set
up of the audio panel. This makes making changes to the audio configuration
simple. This approach means a Pilot guide is almost unnecessary.
In addition to Nav 1 and 2 switched inputs, there are three Pilot definable
switched inputs that can be named to reflect actual equipment in the aircraft.
Finally, there is no requirement for an avionics shop to connect a computer
for initialization of the audio panel. All audio panel adjustments can be done
using front panel controls, eliminating the need to connect to an external
computer.

PMA6000B
###
The PMA7000B audio panel lends itself nicely for upgrading an existing Bendix/
King KMA24. While not a plug and play with this KMA24, the PMA7000 series
uses the KMA24 connector exactly as it is. This means that none of the wires to
the radios are changed. Because the KMA24 does not have a built-in intercom,
a second connector is necessary to access the capabilities of intercom, music
inputs, and even a telephone interface.
With our legendary 6-place IntelliVox® auto squelch, adjusting the trip level
of the individual microphones is a thing of the past. IntelliVox® is designed to
keep all microphones off until it recognizes a voice. When is does hear a voice,
it instantaneously opens up that mic channel, allowing the intercom channel to
be heard. No more clipping or missed syllables, it just works flawlessly.
The PMA7000 series has 3-Com capability. If desired, the Com 3 can be wired
as a full duplex telephone interface. With the ability to call ATC while on the
ground using the headset, the clarity of these calls are much improved, making
the phone a virtual 3rd radio.
Stereo music is the hallmark of the PMA7000 series. With audiophile quality,
the Pilot, crew, and passengers can listen to music using our Softmute™.
When the radio becomes active, the music will mute, allowing unfettered
access to the radio communications. There is the ability to place the music into
“Karaoke”mode through the use of the ICS button.
The PMA6000B has been given the benefit of PS Engineering’s years of
audio panel control design and manufacturing experience. It offers a low cost
alternative to the more capable audio panel product line that the industry has
come to expect from such a focused and driven company. This audio selector panel has our original “Set it and Forget it” manually
adjusted VOX intercom and a slew of features to enhance versatility and utility.
Swap function allows selection of Com 1 or Com 2 from remote pushbutton.
Fail-safe feature automatically hard-wires the Pilot to Com 1 in the case of an
outage Uses a single 44-pin connector making installation easier.
The PMA6000B holds FAA TSO and EASA ETSO and was designed to be made
easier to install using a single 44-pin Sub-d connector.

this new one.
PMA7000M
If you have installed our original mid-1990’s PMA6000 series
audio panel in your avionics stack, this Plug ‘N Play audio panel
will provide a tremendous upgrade for those panels without any
rewiring at all. The only thing that is required for installation is a
3/32” Allen Wrench.
CHECKLIST OF FEATURES:
Having all of the capabilities of the PMA7000BT with the exception
that the music is monaural not stereo, this upgrade will provide
IntelliAudio®, a significantly improved user interface, and the ability
to make phone calls and stream music.
This expanded version of the
PMA7000B includes a 10-place
intercom and an optional Cockpit
Voice Recorder (CVR) output. For
environments where having a Hot
Mic is beneficial, the PMA7000H
not only has IntelliVox® but
also has provisions for Push-ToTalk Intercom. This capability
is especially useful when there
may be direct wind noise on the

All models of the PMA8000 are Plug ‘N Play with the GARMIN
GMA340*. This makes upgrading to the more capable PMA8000
Series audio panels simple because it is as easy as sliding out the
GMA340 and sliding back in the PMA8000.
The PMA8000BT adds Bluetooth connectivity. This allows
Bluetooth® enabled devices to be wirelessly connected to the audio
panel, eliminating the wire clutter usually associated with iPods,
telephones, or other devices that are “plugged into” the audio
panel.

PAC24
PMA8000C
The PMA8000C provides for an additional communications transceiver. While
most aircraft have two Com radios, there are cases where a third transceiver is
required. The PMA8000C not only allows the connection of three radios, it also
provides 3 unique split transmit modes.
Pilot Com 1 - Copilot Com 2
Pilot Com 1 - Copilot Com 3
Pilot Com 2 - Copilot Com 3
This is particularly helpful when there are special missions required. As an
example, Com 3 could be a HF or UHF radio. Unlike the GMA340 where only Pilot
Com 1 - Copilot Com 2 is offered, the PMA8000C adds this additional flexibility.
The PMA8000E is a system that consists of two interconnected audio panels. This
provides the Pilot and Copilot their own audio selector panel. With the intelligent
digital interface control, the Pilot has command of the entire audio panel system yet
can easily offload some of the radio work to the Copilot.
Intercom configurations allow the Pilot undisturbed radio communications while
permitting the Copilot and passengers to communicate.
“Strange States” are a thing of the past thanks to
the PMA8000E’s built-in intelligence. This system
prevents the Copilot from over-riding the Pilot’s audio
panel configurations, or interrupting the Pilot’s radio
communications. Because of this intelligent approach,
the Pilot and Copilot will treat their respective audio
panels as their very own, never second guessing what
configuration the other person has his audio panel in.

PDA360EX
For Experimental Aircraft Only
With IntelliAudio® being embraced by pilots who fly certified aircraft,
we wanted to make it available to the Homebuilder. Taking some of the
PMA450’s technology while adding some unique capabilities, we put these
functions into a package that best suits the Homebuilder.
Operation is based upon a 3-softkey/graphics display interface that virtually
eliminates the need for a Pilot’s Guide. It can be configured so the Pilot has
direct access allowing customization of the audio panel.
For instance, when wearing stereo headsets, Com 1 will appear to come from
the Pilot’s 10 o’clock position while Com 2 will appear to come from the
2 o’clock position. Because the method used to create this audio environment
not only makes it possible for the Pilot to hear both radios at the same time,
it allows the brain to more easily discern one com from the other. With
IntelliAudio®’s digital audio processing, the radio and intercom audio is
incredibly clean, clear and crisp.

examples of the amount of control the Pilot has over his environment.
In addition to Nav 1 and Nav 2 audio capabilities, there are additional inputs.
They can be labeled using a unique alphanumeric name. This allows the Pilot
to label these switched inputs precisely.
With a built-in 10 Watt-USB charger, it is capable of charging electronic
devices, such as tablets, PDAs, iPhones, and iPads. The charger monitors the
output and will automatically disconnect a short.

PMA5000EX
For Experimental Aircraft Only
Taking the designs we have created for our certified systems, PS Engineering
designed an audio panel with plenty of capability but at an incredibly low price.
This panel was designed specifically for experimental and LSA owners. Without the traditional functions such as Marker Beacon Receiver, Speaker
Amplifier, as well as avoiding the costs of certification, the PMA5000EX provides
an unprecedented level of price/performance for the homebuilt.
Sporting a four-place IntelliVox® hi-fi stereo intercom, the world-renown automatic
VOX makes inter-cockpit communications completely seamless. With two types
of music distribution, four kinds of music muting, and with Softmute™ technology,
the PMA5000EX provides the flexibility that homebuilders are seeking.
Some experimental aircraft have a significantly higher cabin cockpit din than
others, the PMA5000EX IntelliVox® has a configurable “Extreme Noise Capability
Mode” making it unlikely that the IntelliVox would trigger prematurely.
The dedicated front panel volume control of music input #1 makes changing the
entertainment volume level as easy as pushing up or down on the dedicated
music buttons.
The Pilot can select between two music distribution modes. Standard music
distribution sends music 1 to the Crew and music 2 Passengers. Alternate which
sends music 1 to all headsets in ALL mode and when in Crew mode, music 2 turns
on for the passengers.

###
The PM1200 is designed for the noisiest of aircraft, including open cockpit and
warbird aircraft. The Active Microphone Processor (AMP) uses emphasis and
de-emphasis to strip much of the background noise out of the intercom audio.
PM1200
The PM1200 provides both our IntelliVox® auto-squelch and Push-to-talk
intercom (PTT-ICS) so that when the cockpit noise is too high for VOX operation,
a press of the Copilot’s volume control places the PM1200 into PTT-ICS mode.
Intercoms
When selecting an intercom, remember the ol’ adage “you get what you pay
for.” The intercom is an integral part of your communication package, and
cutting cost simply doesn’t make sense. Consider that the installation costs
are practically the same regardless of what intercom you select. While a stereo
intercom may take just a bit longer than a mono intercom to install, most of the
cost of your intercom system will be in installation labor.
FAA certification is also more of an issue than it has ever been before. Be sure to
check the requirements of FAA approval for your particular installation.
And for those pilots who like to wear ear plugs while wearing headsets, the
PM1200 has the ability, when connected to a 24 volt system, of providing up to
120mW! Now that’s a lot of audio punch!

This design makes it easy to balance intercom, radio and music volume levels. And
with Soft Mute©, the Pilot will never miss a radio call because the monaural music
is automatically muted.
PM1000II – Most popular of our intercoms because of the individual volume
and squelch controls, as well as moderate price.

The PM500EX is a 4-place, panel mount unit designed as a basic intercom. It is
intended for low noise environments and non-certified aircraft. It has both ISO
and ALL intercom modes.
The volume control adjusts intercom volume and acts as the power switch. The
single VOX (squelch) control adjusts the trip level for all microphones. When
anyone speaks, the mic circuit opens. After a short delay, the circuit closes
again, allowing the headset noise cancellation to be effective.
An entertainment input provides the Pilot and passengers the option to listen to
music during flight. When the intercom is active, the music will mute allowing
uninterrupted communications. Note: music not muted during radio reception.
PM500EX is not FAA certified - use for non-certificated aircraft only.
The PM3000 has its roots in the first available stereo intercom, the PM2000.
With audiophile stereo music sound, this panel mount provides high-quality
intercom and aircraft radio audio, while Soft Mute© provides the Pilot the ability
to select having the muting function turned on or off. This eliminates the need
for constant changes in the stereo music when the aircraft radio becomes active.
The VOX in the PM3000 earned the reputation “Set it-Forget it, it’s the most
