SigNET PDA200/2 induction loop amplifier provides up to 120m2 coverage, ideal for church applications. It has a freestanding case with recessed controls to prevent tampering. The PDA200/2 is an updated version of the PDA200, which now gives 2x Line Level Inputs and 1x Mic Input, and is compatible with Outreach Plates.
By utilising SigNETs unique floating sense system, this model provides flat frequency response from as low as 20Hz up to the recommended maximum of 16KHz, providing excellent audio quality.
Permanent installation system Please note this model is intended for permanent installation. Ideal cable to utilise for installation is 1.5mm-4.5mm single core, ideal DC impedance should be 2ohms. (Installation and cables etc are NOT included).
Automatic tracking compressor - compensates for poor microphone technique
The difference between this model PDA200 and the PDA800 is that the latter has 400m2 range coverage. The PDA200E is a wall mounted amplifier rather than this model PDA200 which is desktop.
A guideline to room sizes and kits suited to those applications:
Counters and tables up to 1.2m2 - ML1/K, PL1
Induction loop systems
Induction loop systems make it possible for a deaf or hard of hearing person to make use of a service. You may have been a sign at a bank cashiers point or in restaurant, theatre or lecture classes, which says Induction Loop service, showing the bright yellow logo of an ear with letter T.
Market leaders in the UK are SigNET and Contacta, whose products ensure that organisations are meeting their legal requirements and also help provide customer satisfaction and loyalty where induction loop systems are installed. Hearing impared visitors will benefit in these environments from a greater clarity of sound and reduced levels of background noise.
The Disability Discrimination Act (UK) states that any business or organisation providing a product or service to the general public are required to install induction looop or infrared systems where it is possible or unreasonably difficult for a deaf or hard of hearing person to make use of a service. Furthermore, British Standard BS8300 (new code of practice for the design of new buildings and how they meet the needs of disabled people), says that a hearing enhancement service, for example an induction loop, should be installed in rooms and areas used for lectures, meetings, classes, etc.
How an Induction Loop system works: It allows a hearing aid user to receive signals picked up and transmitted directly to the hearing aid telecoil (T position), so that a person with impaired hearing will be able to overcome the difficulties of a noisy environment or poor acoustic space and hear more clearly. The loop is an insulated thin wire whch runs all around the perimeter of the room to be served, the size of the field required can vary depending on the application. The induction loop is severed by a driver amplifier which is fed from a microphone and/or sound amplification system.
