The Active Loop Panel is a lightweight, compact Hearing Loop (Induction Loop) unit with aesthetic styling designed to complement typical intercoms. It combines all the crucial elements of a functional hearing loop system, requiring only power and an audio input to provide essential access to individuals with hearing loss. It comprises an IP rated case, efficient class D loop driver (amplifier), multi-turn copper loop and the internationally recognised signage that informs the user that the service is available.
It designed to be mounted close to an entry intercom or other devices where it can be connected to the audio source via transformer isolated balanced input.
Installation is quick and simple, requiring only the removal of the front cover to reveal the fixing points and quick clamp DC power and line level connections – with only adjustments to current, gain and metal loss compensation being required if necessary when commissioned using a Field Strength Meter or Loopworks Measure Receiver.

The Active Loop Panel is designed to produce optimal audio quality at bent arm’s length for the average person – as it is expected that they will be depressing a button to communicate via the intercom.
The unit can be mounted below or at the side of the intercom panel at a height of approximately 1.1-1.2 meters (4 feet). At this height, the emitted magnetic field shape will function correctly for both standing adults, children and wheel chair users.
When wall mounting, cabling between the intercom and Active Loop Panel should ideally be routed behind the brickwork to maintain IP rating and finished aesthetics.
