There are two main types of induction loops (assisted listening):
An Induction loop system also known as a hearing loop or T-Loop can be used by the hearing impaired who wear a telecoil (or T-coil) hearing aid. They work by introducing a magnetic field which is picked up by the T-Coil inside the hearing aid which then tailors the sound to the
specific needs of the individual without background noise. Induction loop systems can cover
the area of a room or a desk or counter.
An Infrared transmitter takes the audio from microphones or other audio sources. It converts the audio to a frequency modulated infrared light beam. The light is then passed to dedicated receivers worn by the individual. The receiver converts the light to either audio for headphones or to an induction loop coil for individuals with a T-coil hearing aid. Infrared systems can be used where hearing is impaired but a hearing aid is not worn.
All Assistive Hearing systems installed by Simcol Communications are supplied with AFILS (Audio Frequency Induction Loop Systems) Certification In conjunction with the DDA (Disability Discrimination Act). It is important therefore to have these systems maintained regularly for correct operation and performance.
