ILD122 Professional Audio Induction Loop Driver Datasheet
ILD122 Professional Audio Induction Loop Driver
The ILD122 is a new addition to our professional audio induction loop range capable of driving loop areas in excess of
200m2 with an unsurpassed clarity of sound for both music and speech for superior intelligibility. Based on proven and
highly reliable technology it is backed by an unrivalled 5 year warranty and free technical support. Improved power output
provides outstanding value without compromise. It boasts all the usual features found on Ampetronic equipment such as
metal loss correction and is compatible with our
unique Ultra-Low Spill™ technology. The ILD122 is
very compact and elegant, suitable for freestanding,
wall mounting or rack mounting.

arrays and long cable lengths
Applications include:
Conference facilities
Sports halls
Educational environments
Confidential rooms
Lecture Halls
Room aspect ratio
Maximum area m2
For any Induction Loop System, area coverage is dependent on
several factors. Please check these assumptions and contact Ampetronic
for advice if required:
• loop must be 1-2m above or below the receiver height
• there should be no metal structures in the plane of the loop
• sufficient voltage to drive the loop – check the cable table below
Low Overspill or Low Loss Systems
ILD122 amplifiers are designed for use in combination with Ampetronic
Ultra-Low Spill™ technology. This will require an SP5 phase shifter and an
array design – Ampetronic can provide designs or guidance for any application.
Used to drive an array, two ILD122s can:
• minimise ‘spill’ – confines signal to within 1.5m of room, suitable for
adjacent rooms e.g. cinemas, classrooms, or confidential rooms
• compensate for high losses due to metal structures – the only
effective solution for high loss environments to meet IEC60118-4
Maximum Cable Length
The ILD122 is designed for SINGLE TURN loops for optimum audio quality:
• Loops with DC resistance from 0.2 to 1.8 Ω
• Impedance up to a maximum of 2.0 Ω
Maximum cable length is dependent on cable type and on the application :
Cable type
Maximum Total Cable Length (m)
Normal use*
Transient speech*
2.5mm2 copper
4.0mm2 copper
flat copper tape
* Short term speech (e.g. service counter, airport PA system) can cope with limited clipping at high
frequencies – Ampetronic recommends delivery of full current up to 1.2kHz for these applications.
Longer term usage or signals with music or high quality audio must deliver full current to at least
1.6kHz to prevent fatigue and give acceptable intelligibility. Many commercially available systems do not
deliver sufficient voltage to reproduce critical high frequencies – ask Ampetronic for more details.

Metal loss
Corrects system frequency response due to metal structures in
a building. Gain constant at 1kHz, adjustable gain slope from
0 to 3dB per octave.
This does not compensate for signal loss from metal structures
which can be significant.
SP5 for an array system – use of and SP5
requires a design which can be provided
by Ampetronic
Input adaptors and preamplifiers
By using the appropriate input adaptor or preamplifier the ILD122 will
accept multiple additional inputs or audio inputs from other sources:
Input type

IP20 protection; 20 to 90% relative humidity; 0 to 35ºC
Standards compliance
The ILD122 is CE marked to all relevant safety and EMC standards.
All Ampetronic amplifiers can be used to create a system that meets
the requirements of IEC118-4 and the relevant recommendation of
BS7594, however the design and installation of the system is equally
important to meet these Induction Loop standards.
Fault Monitoring
Three LED fault indicators on the front panel:
• Overload – delivering over the rated current
• Overheat – unit is too hot (mutes output signal)
• Loop error – short circuit / open circuit error
To supply Ampetronic ancillary units
±15V DC 0.15A power outlet on rear panel
Cooling is by natural convection from product casing
Some Ampetronic products are CSA registered for sale in the USA
and Canada – contact Ampetronic for details.
