C-tec Styler DL50/K ag
Our new DL50/K domestic loop
amplifier kit includes everything you
need to create a high quality
induction loop system for a bedroom,
living room, TV lounge or study.
Carefully designed to sit discreetly
alongside all types of audio-visual
equipment, the amplifier features
one set of phono inputs (for direct
connection to television sets, etc),
two microphone inputs and an alert
input (for connection to fire alarms,
doorbells, etc).
Screwdriver-adjustable drive, level,
Ideal for bedrooms, living rooms, TV lounges, studies and other domestic applications
mix and tone controls are provided,
Kit includes a DL50 induction loop amplifier c/w plug-top power supply, 33m of loop
cable*, a SCART-to-double-phono audio connection lead and a microphone
allowing the system to be tailored to
suit the exact requirements of any
room, with installation further aided
by the provision of an output current
meter, an input peak LED and an
easy-to-follow installation guide.
Attractively-designed amplifier provides max. square room coverage of 50m2 (7m x 7m)
or max. rectangular room coverage of up to 100m2 (5m x 20m)*
Connections provided for two 3.5mm electret microphones (one mic. is provided in the
DL50/K kit) and one SCART-to-double-phono audio lead (alternative leads are available
for purchase if required)
Simple to adjust, tamper-resistant drive, level, tone and mic. priority controls
Input peak, output current, signal present and power on LEDs
Alert tone input for doorbells, fire alarms, security systems, etc.
Automatic compressor limiter
Full 2Ω drive current capability for increased coverage at higher frequencies
Fully compliant with EN60118-4 (formerly BS6083) and BS7594:1993
* Longer lengths of loop cable may be required for rectangular rooms.

Induction loop systems allow hearing impaired people to hear more clearly.
Most hearing aids have a ‘T’ or ‘MT’ switch which allows them to pick up the electromagnetic field generated by a telephone earpiece.
This signal is converted by the hearing aid into a sound suited to its user’s specific hearing requirements. An induction loop system uses this
same principle but generates a much larger magnetic field than that created by a telephone earpiece and radiates it around a room via a
‘loop’ of cable. Any hearing impaired person positioned within the loop can hear the loop signal by switching their hearing aid to the correct
An induction loop system therefore comprises four main elements:The audio source – typically a microphone, a television or a radio (or any combination of these).
The induction loop amplifier.
The loop – a single turn of wire usually run around the perimeter of the room.
The receiver(s) – any behind-the-ear type hearing aid with a ‘T’ or ‘MT’ switch.
The size of field required can vary depending on the application, from 1m2 for ticket booths or bank counters, to in excess of 600m2 for larger
installations such as theatres and cinemas. The DL50 amplifier can generate a field of up to 50m2 in a square room (7m x 7m) or up to 100m2
in a rectangular room (5m x 20m) and is therefore ideal for the vast majority of domestic applications, nursing home TV lounges, etc.
For testing purposes, we recommend that an RXTi induction loop receiver/listener is purchased and, if possible, supplied
with every job.
The RXTi emulates an NHS hearing aid and allows installation engineers to test an induction loop system for audibility,
dead spots and overspill during system set-up. If left on-site, the end-user can also use the RXTi to periodically check
that the system is working correctly.
The RXTi is supplied in a robust 110 x 56 x 32mm case with a sturdy belt clip and rotary volume control. It requires two
AAA batteries and one set of Walkman-style headphones (not supplied).
The APT loop connector plate allows any audio-frequency induction loop amplifier to be quickly connected to a
pre-installed loop. It is ideal for nursing homes, schools, interview rooms, conference suites, etc, where it is often
impractical to have a permanent loop system fitted but where quick and easy access to one is a must.
The APT mounts on a standard single gang UK back box and uses phono-type connectors.
