D10-1 networkable DSP hearing loop driver

The D Series represents the global benchmark for digital audio hearing loop systems. The compact, elegant and sturdy units not only feature digital signal processing and networking functionality, but are also the most versatile and powerful solution available.

The D10-1 digital amplifier is a 10 Amp single output class ‘D’ driver; meaning a 60%+ increase in energy efficiency over existing solutions. The driver features capacitive touch front panels with intuitive menus, built in test signals, and are fully networkable with a Wi-Fi accessible standard browser based control panel for remote set-up, monitoring and email alerts, and with Loopworks Measure LoopLink for easy test and commissioning.

The D10-1 features a 10 Amp loop output plus ample voltage headroom, making it the most flexible solution on the market, suitable for a huge range of applications. The added power of the D10-1 provides a solution for installations in environments containing very high levels of metal, previously not possible without the use of combiners.

In another first for high-power Class D Induction Loop drivers, installation can be performed with total confidence, as unique multi-stage filtering ensures compatibility with both other system equipment and global EMC regulations.

Applications include

  • Lecture Theatres & Conference facilities
  • Stadia, Sports Halls, Cinemas & Theatres
  • Courts Rooms, Airports & Railway Stations

All specification data has been compiled in accordance with IEC62489-1, the international standard for audio frequency induction loop equipment. Specification data should only be compared with data compliant to this standard.
This product is CE and RCM marked to all relevant safety and EMC standards, and is NRTL (ETL) approved for sale in North America.

    Indicative metal loss scenarios are based on: 0db = a building with no structural metal, -5dB = a building with reinforced concrete (re-bar) construction, and -10dB = a room with steel raised access floor tiles, -15dB = a room with steel decking or reinforced concrete and raised access floor tiles.

    Multiloop area coverage calculations are based on the following assumptions: 1:1 room aspect ratio, 3mm2 copper tape laid at floor level, base current varies depending on solution employed.

    AUDIO SYSTEM

    Frequency Response80Hz to 6.5kHz
    DistortionTHD+N <0.2% 1kHz sine at full current
    Automatic Gain ControlThe AGC is optimised for speech. Dynamic range >36dB
    Metal Loss CorrectionCorrects system frequency response due to metal structures in a building. Gain constant at 1kHz, adjustable gain slope from 0 to 4dB per octave in 0.25dB increments. Custom 2 slope MLC allows different slopes and transition frequency to be set via the menu.
    This does not compensate for signal loss from metal structures which can be significant.
    Phase ShiftUser selectable at 0° or 90° between outputs
