SigNET PL1/K1 is an induction loop kit that can be used in schools, shops, nursing homes, leisure centres, hotels, banks, GP surgeries, reception desks, meeting rooms, counters, ticket booths, as well as many other private, public or civil applications. It is an ideal device to ensure your environment meets the standards laid out by the DDA.

The only difference between the PL1/K1 and K3 is the carry case it appears.

The K1 version comes with a ‘cardboard’ carry case, the K3 version is supplied with a robust ABS case.

Picture shows the product and how it can be used across a desk.

Made from durable ABS plastic the unit is lightweight and tough enough to be transported and an integral battery allows the unit to be used in most environments. It will cover an area of 1 to 2m2 and uses an integral mic to pick up speech and conversations (however an external microphone may be added if required).

Built-in cut off timer automatically shuts down the system after 10, 30 and 60 minutes if the unit is not being used, helping maintain the battery life for prolonged use.

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 seen 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 organizations are meeting their legal requirements and also help provide customer satisfaction and loyalty where induction loop systems are installed. Hearing impaired 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 organization providing a product or service to the general public are required to install induction loop 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 which 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.
