The HLS-DM2 Hearing Loop Module is an advanced Induction Loop driver for use in smaller area local applications. The unit is designed to be integrated into communication systems such as elevators, intercoms, help points and kiosk systems etc. It is backed by Ampetronic’s 5-year warranty and free technical support.
The HLS-DM2 uses efficient class D current drive technology to reduce power consumption and heat output. It is the only small area induction loop driver capable of reliably driving most practical local area loops to meet the IEC60118-4 Standard even where available power or allowable heat is limited, e.g. connecting to equipment that uses PoE or in plastic enclosures.
The transformer isolated balanced input allows simple connection to all intercoms, help points and kiosk systems, making the HLS-DM2 the obvious choice for any quality intercom system.
Whilst the HLS-DM2 draws less than 2.9W @ 12V DC with typical signals, you should still check that any existing supply has enough spare capacity.
The attached video is an example of the audio experience for a hearing aid user at a help point with an integrated HLS-DM2.
