The T14-1 Rail transport hearing loop driver offers:
Service broadcasts and emergency announcements through rail and tram Public Address (PA) systems are now part of everyday life. Their direct connection to the user’s hearing aid means that Hearing Loops are the only assistive listening technology suitable for use on public passenger vehicles.
The T14-1 Rail transport hearing loop driver from Ampetronic offers performance you can rely on:
The T14-1 hearing loop driver range has been designed as high quality digital, networkable single loop output drivers. The range includes models intended for use in rail or bus applications.
Depending on a number of factors regarding the installation of the loop and the set-up of the driver, the T14-1 range can provide compliance with IEC 60118-4 for appropriately specified loop installations.
Compliance to relevant Standards, reduced weight and heat generation have been major factors in the design, combined with optimised performance and the freedom from R.F.I. generation.
The T14-1 range has a Class D output stage which offers better than 60% increase in energy efficiency over previous solutions. The products feature WAGO or Harting connectors and use remote control and monitoring via a browser based control panel using standard network protocols; including HTTP, Telnet, email and SNMP.
All units feature high power outputs plus ample voltage headroom, making them suitable for any rail, tram or bus application.
Networked T14-1 models also feature dual-slope metal loss compensation that caters for a wide range of metal loss frequency characteristics.

The T14-1 is compliant with rail standard BS EN 50155:2007 and associated standards including BS EN 50121-3-2 (EMC) and EN 61373:2010 (shock and vibration). In addition, the T14-1 is compliant with EN 45545-2:2013 (Smoke and Fire behaviour) to HL3.
The 24V variant of the T14-1 is compliant with automotive regulation
EN/ECE R10 encompassing the requirements of EN 50498:2010.
The T14-1 will enable an Audio Frequency Induction Loop system that meets the requirements of EN 60118-4:2006 to be created, if the system is specified, installed and commissioned in an appropriate manner, including observing Ampetronic instructions.
Standards compliance to IEC 62489-1
T14-1 amplifiers are designed to form part of a system which can meet all requirements of international loop performance standard IEC 60118-4, and relevant parts of BS 7594. To fully meet requirements of these standards, correct design, installation, commissioning and maintenance are required.
Ampetronic drivers have CE and UL marks to all relevant safety and EMC standards.
