Ampetronic launches D Series induction loop4 February 2016
Specialising in the design and manufacture of audio induction loop systems, Ampetronic is taking the opportunity presented by ISE to launch its new D Series.
Commissioning a system becomes more streamlined with the D Series, the company says; test tones are built in, and the driver can be controlled from any device over the network or via a WiFi router.
“We have always had hearing loop products and support services that are regarded as the best in the industry,” said Ampetronic MD, Julian Pieters. “However, our new D Series range of products not only cements our position as the market leader in the field of audio induction loop system design, but also establishes Ampetronic firmly as the market innovator. The amplifiers themselves are state-of-the-art, high output high efficiency class ‘D’ drivers with digital display and touch controls and very clear simple user interface. The network or WiFi connectivity revolutionises the process of setting up a loop system, as well as providing unique capability for remote control, maintenance and monitoring.”
Ampetronic supports the work of hearing loss charities and advocacy groups in the UK. One such organisation is Hearing Link whose 2015 Hearing Loop Awareness Week highlighted the fact that many venues displaying Hearing Loop signs actually have poor working systems and sometimes, the loops aren’t even switched on. According to Ampetronic, the D Series revolutionises the way that venues can manage, maintain and control their hearing loops; the network can monitor driver and loop condition and monitor loop performance, sending reports direct to Loopworks via a cloud service. Venue operators can also be alerted to potential problems with a loop by email, and driver upgrades can be installed remotely.
