UniVox® TV-200
Introduction
UniVox® TV-200 is a professional loop amplifier that enhances the speech
intelligibility when listening through the T-coils in your hearing aids.
With new components and a new construction the environmental strain has
been reduced substantially (half the weight, reduced copper by 90% and
lower power consumption).
All UniVox® amplifiers produce a very large output current to fulfil and
exceed the requirements according to the international standard IEC 60118-4.
To ensure high quality all products undergo carefully testing procedures.

For the user
UniVox® TV-200 is adjusted by a technician and no maintenance is normally
needed. Don’t try to adjust the amplifier yourself as this might make trouble
shooting more difficult.
Description of indicators
Yellow LED (1.) indicates that the amplifier is turned on.
Green LED (2.) indicates that the amplifier is turned on and is connected to a
signal source (TV, DVD, radio etc.).
Blue LED (3.) indicates that the amplifier is transmitting sound to hearing
aids, i.e. is only lit when someone is speaking or other sound is being
transmitted.
Function control
1. Check that the amplifier is turned on (yellow LED lit). Carry on to step 2.
If not, check that the power cord is correctly connected to the amplifier
and to mains.
2. Input signal has to be properly connected (green LED In shall be lit).
Carry on to step 3.
If not, check that the cables between the amplifier and the signal source/s
(TV, DVD, radio etc.) are correctly connected.
3. Blue LED is lit whenever the amplifier is transmitting the sound to the
hearing aid. This shows that the system is working correctly.
If you don’t hear anything in your hearing aid, check that the hearing aid
works and is set in T position.
Error examples
You don’t hear anything through your hearing aids:
1. If the blue LED (3.) Loop is lit, the hearing aid is not working right.
Remedy: Check the hearing aid batteries and that the hearing aid is set in
T position.
2. If the blue LED (3.) Loop is not lit, check that the loop wires (4.) Loop
is properly connected.
If the green LED is not lit, there is no contact with any input signal
source (TV, DVD, radio etc.). Perform a function control as described
above.

UniVox® TV-200
Mounting and placing
UniVox® TV-200 is either wall-mounted, see screw holes on the bottom
(page 10), or placed on a flat and stable surface. The wire between the loop
figuration and the loop amplifier should not exceed 10 meters and the wires
should be paired or twisted.
Important!
The amplifier normally runs hot during use and needs free space for cooling
through the top and bottom. To avoid possible fire or discolour, the amplifier
must be kept at a distance from fragile and easily flammable materials.
Preparatory connections
1. Connect the loop wire to the amplifier’s connector terminal marked
Loop.
2. Connect a suitable input signal source.
3. Connect the amplifier to mains or a 12-24V DC power source. Yellow
LED is lit.
Default settings
1. Check that there is an input signal (green LED In is lit).
2. Adjust the microphone sensitivity (see drawing) so that the green LED In
is lit during program peaks.
3. Adjust the magnetic field strength by turning the control knob Loop so
that program peaks occasionally reach 400mA/m. Use only UniVox®
FSM field strength meter with RMS measurement and 125ms integration
time. Check the sound quality with the loop receiver UniVox® Listener.
In certain cases it might be suitable to increase the treble. The treble
control can be found inside the TV-200 (the only control knob inside).
When increasing the treble there is an increased risk of self-oscillation
and distortion.

UniVox® TV-200
Special settings for TV
● LCD/Plasma TV’s usually have well working RCA/phono connectors.
Connect to In 3.
● SCART: First always check that the present SCART system works,
i.e. the TV changes picture automatically when an external unit (DVD
etc.) is turned on. Remove the existing SCART cable from the TV and
connect it to the output Ext on the TV-200. Connect a new SCART cable
between the SCART output on the TV and the SCART input TV on the
TV-200.
● Sound adjustment/TV sync: Modern flat screen TV’s often have a time
difference (sound delay) between the sound from external units and
the sound from the TV. Use the TV sync adjustment potentiometer to
achieve the best sound (no echo effects).
Detection system in the loop
The acoustical detection system can be connected in two ways:
1. Door bell with power switch
2. External triggering voltage 5-24V AC/DC
The acoustical indication muffles the sound in the loop and starts a wide
banded harmonic sound that cover most of the frequency non-linear hearing
impairments. See the installation guide on the amplifier.
General advice for planning
● Plan for a 2x1.5mm² paired wire. First try to connect as a 2-turn loop. If
the desired field strength is not reached, parallel the two wires thereby
creating a 1-turn loop. As an alternative a flat copper foil can be used if
the room to install a standard round wire is limited.
● Normally reinforced rooms can reduce the coverage area by about 50%.
● Never put analogue input cables close/parallel to the loop wire.
● Avoid dynamic microphones to reduce the risk of magnetically feedback.
● Avoid putting the loop wire close to/on metal constructions or
reinforcing structures. This might reduce the field strength substantially.
6
UniVox® TV-200
● If the smallest side of the looped area is larger than 10 metres, another
loop figuration should be used, for example a figure eight or SLS
solution.
● Is the overspill outside of the loop acceptable? If not, plan for a
UniVox® SLS system with heavily reduced overspill.
● Plan all other electrical equipment in order not to create disturbing
magnetic fields.
● Do not put the loop wire close to a stage area to avoid feedback from
electric instruments and dynamic microphones.
● Always measure and certify the loop installation with UniVox® FSM
field strength meter according to the IEC 60118-4 standard.
