Ecology-Conscious Technology and Manufacturing Techniques are Hallmarks of Powersoft

FARMINGDALE, NY, August 12, 2009 – With industry attention focused on finding green alternatives for installations, Powersoft, an industry leading manufacturer of superior quality digital power amplifiers for the professional audio market, is leading the way through its intrinsic green approach with the design and manufacturing of Powersoft amplifiers. This ecology consciousness effort, combined with high-quality manufacturing and crystal clear sound, is appealing to LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified design engineers and consultants looking to specify equipment that not only reduces the carbon footprint of an installation while providing excellent performance, but positively affects the long-term bottom line. The LEED Green Building Rating System, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) located in Washington, D.C., provides a suite of standards for environmentally sustainable construction. powersoft_moonlight-amphitheater_amp-rack.JPG

“More and more of the projects we are working on are requesting that we meet requirements for LEED-credit for facilities that are being built,? says Vance Breshears, LEED accredited design consultant for Acoustic Dimensions and veteran of over 500 installations worldwide. “Because of their efficiency, Powersoft amplifiers deliver significant green advantages for any installation and that can contribute to a project gaining LEED certification. If you look at power consumption over time, an installation with Powersoft will realize a substantial cost savings. Because the amplifiers utilize power efficiently, they generate less heat and therefore require less cooling than other amplifiers. That is another area for substantial savings. Further, because all models have a small footprint, they use up less rack space.?

While Powersoft amplifiers’ green design success is self-evident through testable performance specifications, the company’s entire manufacturing approach encompasses this philosophy. For instance, the sub-assembly circuit cards incorporated into each amplifier are manufactured by high-end, aerospace manufacturers that are themselves green-run operations. The Powersoft production plant in Bologna, Italy, employs extensive solar panel arrays to provide plant electricity. Powersoft has even created a registered Green Audio Power logo to demonstrate its commitment to green design.

“I think it’s great that Powersoft has taken the initiative to say green manufacturing is important. Powersoft is producing a better product and the end user gains a better system,? states Jeff Miller, LEED accredited senior design consultant for Acoustic Dimensions who designed the sound system for the new Moonlight Amphitheater in Vista, CA. “From my standpoint, I can now say to a client there are options in the marketplace if you care about being green, if you want a more efficient system and if you want to spend less on electricity and cooling. Powersoft is pursuing building a better, greener product from the ground up. While other manufacturers are starting to look at green aspects of production and operation, Powersoft has emerged as an early leader. This is admirable, especially because the company did this entirely on its own.?

Says Powersoft Managing and R&D Director Claudio Lastrucci, “We designed our products to be very ‘green’ friendly and we think this aspect of Powersoft will become increasingly important in the coming years. We are taking great care to take advantage of our new, green-run manufacturing facility to further our company commitment to produce an excellent product that is friendly to the environment on every level.?
