CLS1 wall mount perimeter hearing loop driver

3.3ARMS

Designed for simple discrete installation, the CLS1 is one of the most cost effective and capable solutions in its class. The amplifier is compact and designed specifically for wall mounting. All connections and controls are secured behind a tamper resistant, hinged, detachable cover. Combined with its small size, the range of mounting and cabling options ensure that installation is convenient and tidy in any environment. Input options are comprehensive, with three independent inputs for balanced microphone, balanced and unbalanced line, low impedance and 100V - line speaker systems.

Backed up by Ampetronic’s standard 5 year warranty and comprehensive support services, the CLS1 is truly fit and forget.

Applications include
  • Community Centres
  • Board rooms
  • Churches
  • Interview rooms
  • Meeting rooms
  • Classrooms

The CLS1 enclosure is designed for simple, permanent installation, with secure lid protecting connections and controls, while leaving operation indicators visible. The case is designed to make access simple, and to ensure the amplifier can be installed in the most constrained spaces.

Mounting

Designed for vertical panel mounting using 4 screws (6 holes provided). Template for screw placements provided. The CLS1 is compact enough to fit on a 1U rack tray with feet removed.

Enclosure access

Hinged lid, secured by 2 Phillips PH2 screws. Lid can be removed completely if required, for ease of access, or if there is no room to hinge the lid forwards.

Cable routing

Knock-outs (diameter 20mm) are provided for routing cables into the enclosure. 2 on the top edge, 4 on the rear face, 4 on the bottom edge, providing excellent installation flexibility.

Cable connections

All input cable connections are made with screw terminals mounted on one side of the PCB. Mains power connections are made to a chassis mounted screw terminal block. Loop connection is made to a screw terminal pair mounted on the PCB. Cable connections are illustrated on a detailed label on the case interior.

Indicators

3 LED indicators are visible with the case open or closed:

  • AGC Amber LED lit when input signal is activating the automatic gain control
  • Current Green LED lit when current is running in the loop
  • Power Green LED lit when the unit has power

Controls

Five controls are located to be accessed only with the lid open, all screwdriver adjustable.

  • Level controls for inputs 1, 2 and 3
  • Metal loss correction
  • Loop drive current
  • Quick and simple to install
  • Area coverage to >200m2
  • 3 independent configurable inputs
  • Wall mounted
  • Metal Loss Correction
  • 5 Year warranty
  • Cabling and controls behind tamper resistant cover
  • Free Technical support

Perimeter Loops – Area Coverage (maximum)

The CLS1 is designed for perimeter loop applications.

Room aspect ratio 1:1 2:1 3:1
Maximum area coverage m2  120 150 200

For any Induction Loop System, area coverage is dependent on several factors. Please check these assumptions and contact Ampetronic for advice if required:

  • The loop is 1-2m above or below the receiver height
  • There are no metal structures in the plane of the loop
  • There is sufficient voltage to drive the cable length – check table below.

Maximum Cable Length

The CLS1 is designed for SINGLE TURN loops for optimum audio quality:

  • Loops with DC resistance from 0.20Ω
  • Impedance up to a maximum of 1.8Ω

Maximum cable length is dependent on cable type and on the application.

Cable type Maximum Cable Length (m)
Normal Use Transient Speech
1.0mm2 copper 68 79
2.5mm2 copper 93 118
4.0mm2 copper 97 126
1.8mm2 flat copper tape 120 136
