In the summer of 1985, Mark Scheuer walked the aisles of the Fly Market at the EAA AirVenture fly-in at Oshkosh, telling everyone who would listen about his new intercom. This year, PS Engineering’s products will be sold in a double-size booth in Hangar A at AirVenture.
The portable aerocom was the company’s first intercom, and it took another four years before the panel-mounted PM1000 was introduced. In the last year, PS Engineering has flipped the trend, and introduced five new audio systems: The PMA450, PMA7000M, PMA7000BT, and PDA360EX.
The PMA450 features IntelliAudio Spatial Processing. Developed by the US Air Force Laboratory, this gives the flight crew the ability to differentiate radio communications sources by placing them in different locations around their head, he explained.
The new PMA7000-series audio panels were specifically designed to replace the older existing PMA6000 and PMA7000 audio panels and add Bluetooth functionality.
