Portable induction loop systems for one to one use
The Contacta portable localised field induction loop system has been designed specifically to aid communication with hard-of-hearing people who have the ’T’ programme on their hearing aid.
The stylish control unit is constructed in robust ABS plastic, incorporating an internal microphone, amplifier, rechargeable battery and antenna.
The unit has the latest microprocessor controlled automatic gain control, noise “gating” to improve reception of speech and automatic standby mode to conserve battery life (approximately 8 hours use on full charge).
The twin colour status LED displays input signal and battery condition.
The unit is fully operational at all times and may still be used when recharging becomes necessary.
The Contacta portable loop provides an exceptionally cost-effective solution wherever:
- Interim Equality Act compliance is required (e.g. during refurbishment, pending imminent business relocation or polling stations).
- A permanent induction loop is not possible/practical e.g. For doctors use on home visits.
- Public contact is only occasional.
The portable loop system is simply placed between the staff member and the customer. The staff member switches on the unit and talks to the customer. The staff member’s voice is picked up by the internal microphone and then converted to a magnetic field which radiates for a maximum of 1.2m. The hard of hearing customer then switches their hearing aid to the’T’ programme to convert the magnetic field back into audio.
