2 x 6.4ARMS for areas up to 840m2
The MLD7 is part of the new benchmark range for professional audio induction loop systems. The elegant, sturdy units feature the most compact and most robust design on the market, requiring only a single 19” rack mount.
The MLD7 is capable of driving a wide variety of multiple loop configurations from multiple simple loops to phase shifted array systems for the most challenging requirements. With an Ampetronic MultiLoop™ Low Loss design, the MLD7 will drive an area up to 840m2, or can be used to drive two perimeter looped areas of up to 700m2 each.
Designed to provide optimum efficiency and ample current for Standard compliant field strength, coupled with unmatched voltage headroom to ensure crystal clear sound reproduction without clipping or distortion at practical loads. MLD units are built to our exacting standards and are backed by our 5 year warranty.
The flexibility of Ampetronic MLD units allows each output channel to drive separate loops, or two drive two overlaid loop patterns, with or without the selectable phase shift between the two channels.
Two separate simple area loops (or perimeter loops) can be driven at the same phase or with 90° phase shift. This can be used to cover large areas with no metal losses, or multiple different areas in the same facility.
Two loop layouts can be driven configured as multiple loop segments with or without phase shift. Simple array, low loss array or low spill array designs can create different performance to optimise field strength over any area, and minimise loop ‘spill’ for adjacent systems or for confidentiality.
Contact Ampetronic for free advice on all loop applications, design tools and support are available to check the expected performance for your application. Most commonly used design types are low loss and low spill:
|Loop Design||No Metal Loss*||Moderate Metal Loss**||High Metal Loss***|
|Perimeter Loop @ 1:1 Aspect Ratio||2 x 400||max 5m loop width||n/a|
|Perimeter Loop @ 3:1 Aspect Ratio||2 x 650||max 5m loop width||n/a|
Typical scenarios are based on *a building with no structural metal, **a building with reinforced concrete (re-bar) construction.

|Loop Monitor||Provides access to monitor actual loop current via a 3.5mm stereo headphone connector on front panel
Channel A on left, channel B on right
|Status||A pair of isolated relay contacts to indicate system status;
fault = open circuit: system OK. = short circuit
|DC Output||Resettable, fuse protected 12V 0.1A.|

|Driver||Channels||Current (ARMS)||Load Resistance (Ohms)||AC In (W)||BTU||AC In (W)||BTU||AC In (W)||BTU||AC In (W)||BTU|
|Frequency Response||80Hz to 6.5kHz|
|Distortion||THD+N <0.2% 1kHz sine at full current|
|Automatic Gain Control||The AGC is optimised for speech. Dynamic range >36dB|
|Metal Loss Correction||Corrects system frequency response due to metal structures in a building.
Gain constant at 1kHz, adjustable gain slope from 0 to 3dB per octave.
This does not compensate for signal loss from metal structures which can be significant.

|Fault Monitoring||Fault indicators on the front panel:
Clipping – delivering over the rated voltage (per channel)
Temp – unit is too hot (temporarily mutes output signal)
Loop error – short circuit / open circuit error (per channel)
|Status Contact||A pair of relay contacts are provided for remote fault monitoring|
|Cooling||Twin variable speed fan cooled. Front inlet, rear exhaust.|
