Residential Loop Systems
Residential induction loop system for a public building to be DDA compliant
When an induction loop system is installed people who are hearing impaired can use the hearing aid set to the 'T' position. The telecoil in the hearing aid picks up the magnetic waves produced by the loop system. A direct copy of the audio signal reaching the microphone is now 'induced' in this coil and the hearing aid converts this electrical signal back to audible sound for the wearer to hear. In this way, someone sitting at the back of the hall can clearly hear the speaker at the front - simply by being inside the loop area.

An induction loop amplifier, drum of loop cable, audio lead for connecting loop amplifier to an existing public address system, cable clips or tack gun, radio microphone and receiver system, microphone to loop connection cable and a loop listener/test to set up and periodically test the induction loop system.

In essence, the size of the room dictates the size of the amplifier required. Our range of church induction loop amplifiers cater for room sizes from 130m2 up to 900m2.
