The specification of a hearing loop system can be complex, requiring detailed knowledge of the all the necessary elements, the loop design options available and their limitations, driver selection and international Standards for performance.
There are many factors to consider before selecting the equipment required for the system. For example an amplifier/driver should never be specified simply on area coverage as such factors as area aspect ratio, loop design, metal losses and required current must also be calculated.
To this end the majority of our clients come to Ampetronic for assistance with system specification. Ampetronic offer this service free of charge and our support team will happy to discuss any areas that require clarification. Contact us on +44 (0) 1636 610062 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
