An integrated audio panel from PS Engineering that controls a remotely mounted transceiver has been updated with a new interface and a feature that calls attention to certain radio calls with spatial cues.
The new PAR200B audio selector panel comes with a remote-mounted VHF radio and builds on its predecessor, the PAR200A, by adding the firm’s IntelliAudio capability and updating the interface with three softkeys, a brighter OLED display, and a layout similar to the PMA450B model designed for IFR operators.
The form factor remains compact at 1.3 inches tall, matching the standard width of audio panels that buyers may opt to replace.
“For years, the sales of our PAR200 exceeded our forecasts. It was clear that this combination was working well for owners of aircraft that are flown for passion versus for business. The PAR200B meets the needs of those whose mission is for flying mostly VFR and in an airplane that doesn’t warrant a costly radio upgrade” said PS Engineering CEO Mark Scheuer, who founded the company in 1985, in a press release.
