Loop Induction Systems

Induction loop systems are mainly used to help hearing impaired people obtain maximum involvement in communications. The concept behind them is quite simple.

All NHS hearing aids have a ‘T’ position which allows them to pick up the electromagnetic field generated by a telephone’s earpiece and convert it into a sound suited to an individual’s specific hearing requirements. A loop system uses this same principle but generates a much larger field than that created by a telephone earpiece and radiates it around a room via a ‘loop’ for the benefit of any hearing impaired person(s) located within it.

An induction loop system therefore comprises four main elements:- the audio source (microphone and / or music inputs), the amplifier (specially designed for the job), the loop (usually a single turn of wire) and the receiver(s) (hearing aids in the ‘T’ position or special loop listening devices).

The size of field required can vary depending on the application, from 1m2 for ticket booths or bank counters to in excess of 600m2 for larger installations such as theatres and cinemas. The PDA101 is available in a variety of cost-effective kit formats and is ideal for use in small TV lounges, meeting rooms and ticket offices.

Refuge Alarms

An emergency voice communication system is a life safety intercom (or telephone) system designed to operate reliably in a fire alarm emergency. Its equipment and wiring must be monitored for faults that might occur prior to the emergency and its cabling and battery backup supply must ensure it keeps working during the emergency. According to BS5839 part 9, there are two types of EVC system; disabled refuge and fire telephone. They may be separate, or they may be combined into one system.

Disabled refuge systems

A disabled refuge system typically connects handsfree intercom outstations to a central control room and is used to inform management that someone needs immediate assistance to exit the building.

Fire telephone systems

A fire telephone system is used by management (and marshals at a sports ground) and the fire service before, during and after a fire to communicate with fire marshals and fire fighters.
