Main PowerStation Integrated Console Engine

PowerStation Main is where you start. Inside is a bulletproof mixing engine capable of powering consoles of up to 40 faders. There’s a massive fanless, convection-cooled power supply. There are two Mic inputs, four Analog inputs and six outputs, two AES/EBU inputs and two outputs, and four GPIO ports, each with five opto-isolated inputs and five opto-isolated outputs. There are 14 100BASE-T Ethernet ports with Livewire® for single-cable connection of Telos® phone systems, Omnia® audio processors and other Axia equipment, as well as gear from our huge list of Livewire partners. Two Gigabit ports with SFP enable connection to other studios via copper or fiber. Just connect it to your Element console (it only takes a single cable), plug in your audio devices, and perform some fast web-based configuration. Add power and you’re on the air. It’s that simple!


PowerStation is an all-in-one studio solution that combines audio I/O, a console power supply, mixing engine and built-for-broadcast network switch into one easy-to-deploy package. Each PowerStation Main provides 4 Analog inputs and 6 Analog outputs, 2 AES/EBU inputs and 2 AES/EBU outputs, 2 Microphone inputs with selectable Phantom power, 4 GPIO machine-control logic ports, each with 5 inputs and 5 outputs, an integrated network switch with 14 100BASE-T Ethernet ports and 2 1000BASE-T (Gigabit) ports with SFP, a heavy-duty Telecom-grade power supply with fanless convection cooling, and an industrial-grade CPU designed for harsh-environment reliability.

Use PowerStation Main with an Element® or Fusion™ mixing console as a standalone studio solution, or connect to other Axia equipment as part of a larger IP-Audio network. Simple Networking allows daisy- chain connection of up to 4 PowerStation-based studios without the use of an external network switch. Connecting a PowerStation Aux adds auto-switching redundant backup power and doubles audio I/O and GPIO capacity. I/O can also be easily expanded using Axia xNodes.


  • Fanless design with heavy machined heat-sinks is completely silent in-studio.

  • Front-panel status display monitors power and network status.

  • Telecom grade power supplies are designed for maximum uptime under harsh conditions.

  • Add a PowerStation Aux to PowerStation Main for dual-redundant power supply with automatic, seamless switching.

  • Add redundant power to PowerStation Main without adding additional IO with Axia Console Power Supply.

  • Built-in, zero-configuration network switch with Gigabit and SFP for long-distance fiber connection.

  • Large variety of built-in audio I/O boasts studio-grade audio performance specs.

  • Add more I/O with PowerStation Aux, or a la carte using Axia Audio xNodes.
