The PLA 240 is able to supply living quarters or small conference rooms up to approx. 540 sq. ft. (50 sq.m) with inductive audio signals via the loop connected. The system includes 120 ft. (37 m) induction loop wire. In addition to settings for basic volume and tone, the digitally controlled induction loop amplifier uses Automatic Gain Control to stabilize the volume for fluctuating input levels. The device is able to accommodate the connection of up to 5 audio sources. The desired source can be selected at the touch of a button.
The PLA 240 Loop System provides a practical solution for hearing aid users to listen more easily to their TV or audio equipment via the “T” or “Loop “ program of their hearing aid. With no direct connection between the user and a TV or Audio equipment the user is able to move freely with the looped area and listen comfortably to a TV or audio equipment without the distractions of normal listening. The Loop System is used in conjunction with a hearing aid with a “T” or “Loop” program found on many ‘behind the ear’ or ‘in the ear’ hearing aids. The loop system picks up the sound from a TV via a direct connection or microphone and feeds it to the amplifier. The sound is then passed to a loop of wire around the listening area, which in turn transmits the sound inductively (magnetic sound waves) to a hearing aid with the loop facility. The user may then adjust the loop volume or tone to suit their own hearing preference without affecting others. The Loop System is supplied with loop wire. The loop wire is placed around the inside perimeter of a room that you want to listen in The sound can be heard anywhere inside the “looped” area and sometimes just outside the loop as well.
