Crown IQ3USP3
100mb Ethernet Module

OUR PART #  IQ3USP3


PIP-USP3 is a DSP-based PIP module that integrates into a 100-Mb Ethernet network via TCP/IQ protocol. An extremely versatile speaker-processing unit that mounts right in your Crown amplifier, this compact module greatly reduces the costs of typical audio systems while eliminating the rack space needed for signal processing. Offers up to thirty-two filters per channel as well as load supervision that continuously monitors the load impedance using the signal source as the test signal. Also includes compressors, limiters, error reporting, ten internal presets, up to 2 seconds of delay per channel, and noise and sine-wave generators. Also includes line voltage monitoring when installed in Crown CTs series amplifiers. Requires FREE IQwic Software and a computer for initial setup.

Crown IQ3USP3 Features:

  • 100Mb Ethernet single-plug solution for TCP/IQcontrol and monitoring
  • Listen Bus amplifier output monitor
  • 24 bit conversion with 32 bit, floating point DSPprocessing
  • 64 assignable filters with 9 different filter typesincluding all-pass filters
  • Over 2 seconds of delay available per channel
  • Input compressors and output limiters for eachchannel
  • Dual, uncorrelated noise generators for noise masking
  • Sine-wave generator
  • Load supervision
  • Full error reporting
  • Firmware upgrades via the network
  • 10 user selectable presets
  • Reliable FLASH memory backup of all parameters
  • Three Year, No-Fault, Fully Transferable Warranty completely protects your investment and guarantees its specifications.

Crown IQ3USP3 Specifications:

  • Internal Controls: AReset/Preset switch, accessible with a straightened paper clip through the PIPpanel, selects the next user preset if pressed for less than 2 seconds, resetsthe PIP to preset “0” if pressed for more than 2 seconds
  • Connectors:
    • Balanced Audio Input Connectors
    • 3-pin removable barrier-strip connector for both channels
  • AUX Connector: Configurablefor AUX input, AUX output or Listen Bus
  • Network Connector: The networkconnector is a standard RJ-45 connector that allows the IQ-PIP-USP3 to connectto an Ethernet network. Connection is made using a standard CAT 5 cable to anetwork switch port. In cases where an IQ-PIP-USP3 is used in standalone mode(not connected to an network) it can be confi gured using a crossover cable(TXand RX pairs swapped) directly to a computer’s network adapter port
  • Indicators:
    • Preset Indicator: Signals the number of the current preset, if active, by flashing a series of flashes equal to the current preset number
    • IQ Data Indicator Flashes when the IQ-PIP-USP3 receives a valid command that is addressed to the IQ-PIP-USP3
  • Switches:
    • Reset/Preset Switch: Used to change presets, restore settings to factory default or restore all the presets to the factory defaults. During operations of the switch, the Data indicator fl ashes as an aid to the user.
  • Memory Backup: 512 kbyte non-volatile FLASH memory for backup of run-time parameters, presets, and program storage.
    • Capable of greater than 10 year data retention and estimated 20+ year life-cycle.
  • Communications: 100Mb Fast Ethernet conforming toIEEE 802.3.
  • Power Requirements: +24VDC @ 250mA, –24VDC @ 30mA.< 7 watts.
  • DSP Processing: 32 bit, Floating Point, 665 µslatency.
  • Maximum Input Level: + 20 dBu.
  • ADC Conversion: 24 bit, 250 µs latency.
  • DAC Conversion: 24 bit, 135 µs latency.
  • Dynamic Range: >105 dB (A-weighted, 20Hz–20kHz).
  • Distortion: < 0.05% THD+N, 20Hz–20kHz.
  • Crosstalk: > 60 dB @ 1kHz. Common Mode Rejection(CMR): 50 dB typical.
  • Frequency Response: ± 0.5 dB, 20Hz–20kHz. Input/Output Monitor Accuracy:Typically ±1dB.
