Audio-frequency induction loop systems (AFILS) allow hearing impaired people to hear more clearly.
Most hearing aids have a "T" or "MT" switch which allows them to pick up the electromagnetic field generated by an induction loop system. The hearing aid converts this signal into a sound suited to its user's specific hearing requirements.
Any person with a hearing aid positioned within or near the loop can hear the loop signal by switching their hearing aid to the correct position, allowing them to participate more effectively in general conversation, ordering goods or services, listening to public performances, etc.
EDS range of induction loop equipment is one of the most comprehensive in the UK, comprising of a huge array of amplifiers, microphones, connector plates and test equipment covering virtually every conceivable application. Designed to meet or exceed the requirements of BS7594 and EN60118-4.
All amplifiers in the range offer excellent intelligibility, true current mode amplification, phantom power (for electret microphones) and full compatibility with our outreach plate audio input extension system.
Ideal for theatres, cinemas, churches, conference halls and other applications where top quality sound is a must. Each unit includes two XLR 3-pin input sockets (one balanced mic. and one switchable balanced mic./line) and one outreach connector. Adjustable level controls provided for all inputs - can be used individually or together as a three-input mixer.
Metal compensation control helps offset the frequency response problems associated with excessive metal in a building, advanced audio signal processing with automatic gain control, 200m.sq. to 900m.sq.
Electret microphones have the highest tolerance of magnetic feedback and are therefore recommended for induction loop systems. Phantom power is provided on all PDA range amplifiers. B>The Outreach Plate Audio Input Extension System
The Outreach Plate audio input extension system comprises a range of wall, ceiling and desk mountable single gang audio input plates specifically designed to increase the audio input capability of an induction loop system. Covering the most common variants of audio connector, they work by mixing the signals from various audio input sources into one balanced line level input which can be fed into the line input of a compatible amplifier.
Each plate features a built-in mixer, pre-amp, input level control and balanced output, typically, up to 10 Outreach plates can be daisy-chained to one line.
Portable, lightweight design means the system can be moved easily from location to location. Ideal for restricted person to person contact in areas such as banks, post offices, small meeting rooms, reception desks, open plan offices and ticket booths.
Automatic shut-off facility (user selectable for 10, 30 or 60 minutes) helps preserve battery life, can be used as normal whilst charging. 1.2m.sq.
Ideal for banks, post offices, small meeting rooms, reception desks, ticket booths and any other application requiring restricted or small area coverage.
Requires no specialist audio experience or connectors, space-saving double-gang wall-mounting amplifier fits standard UK 25mm back boxes (requires fixed mains wiring). 1.2m.sq. ML1/K double gang fixed counter loop system.
Ideal for use in small meeting rooms, council chambers, doctor surgeries, etc and any other application requiring restricted or small area coverage.
Includes a 3.5mm microphone input (for use with the AMT microphone supplied) and a line/outreach socket, designed to be free-standing or wall-mounted using the keyholes provided.
50m.sq. PDA102L/R/S small room induction loop systems.
Free-standing - ideal for bedrooms, living rooms, TV lounges, studies and other domestic applications. Simple to adjust, tamper-resistant drive, level, tone and mic. priority controls.
