HUMANTECHNIK induction loop systems
In Australia, as in many countries throughout the world,
1 in 5 people, or 20% of the population have varying
degrees of hearing impairment. This ratio is predicted to
reach 25%, or over 5 million Australians in the very near
future due to the effects of population aging and severe
noise pollution.
None of us can wait for the time when we are given
headphones to listen to a live concert, however, the scary
thing is that this could happen with the threat of new
OH&S issues surrounding the music industry.

THE LEGISLATION
The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA 1992) while complex and
detailed in its principles, is very concise in its stated position. In brief
it clearly states that it is illegal to discriminate against those having any
kind of impairment. This of course includes hearing impairment.
The act is directed toward all classes of building including educational
facilities, hospitals, aged care facilities, conference venues and a host
of applications, including transport. In simple terms failure to meet
requirements of the act can lead to litigation against the property owner, or
developer, or business principals. It is wide in scope while clear in intent.
The Act says that service providers may not discriminate against a
hearing impaired person by refusing to provide a service or offering
a service of a lower standard or on less favourable terms, on the
grounds of their hearing impairment. Service providers must also
make adjustments to the way in which they provide goods or
services to enable hearing impaired people to access them.
Additionally, Building Codes Australia standard 2007 states that
80% of any public space containing Public Address Systems
should cater for the hearing impaired. The Standard covering
Hearing Impaired people is also covered under AS 60118.4
For many years now, there has been a tendency for Building Owners and
Managers to overlook the needs of the hearing impaired, however, this is
about to change with the adoption of the revised standard. This happened
in the same manner as with access for the disabled to buildings of services.
The installation of Hearing Augmentation equipment, should,
in theory, provide the best possible outcome when obtaining
services for people using an Assistive Listening device (ALD)
In a majority of installations, the best possible system is
not provided by those required to do so because:
• It is not considered a priority in budgeting
• It is out of site – out of mind as far as the Building Owners are concerned
• The end user is never considered with any degree of concern.
This, in itself is discriminatory, as the person with the hearing
impairment is as much entitled to hear, or obtain services
simply and without discrimination as any other person.
• Quite often Consulting Engineers and Builders have limited
understanding of the function of an Induction Loop System,
or the Standard covering its installation and application.
• Furthermore the installer often has little or no knowledge
of the principles involved when installing equipment and
ensuring that it fully complies to required standards.
HUMANTECHNIK is a pre-eminent German
manufacturer which began operations in 1984
and is dedicated to manufacturing Assistive
Listening products for the hearing impaired.
HUMANTECHNIK manufactures three types
of systems, these being Induction Loop

Loop position: In order to create a uniform magnetic field,
the distance between the loop level to the normal listening
level should be between approx. 1.2 and 2 metres.
The position and size of the loop can also be determined by the position
of the listening area (often much smaller than the size of the room) or the
position of the microphones as well as other technical equipment that
affects the magnetic field. If possible, avoid using dynamic microphones in
combination with induction loop systems. If they cannot be avoided, they
must be positioned outside the loops. The distance between the loop and
the dynamic microphone should be at least half the diameter of the loop.
Using a condenser or electret microphone usually produces better results with
respect to interference or acoustic feedback. A microphone with a high-quality,
insulated connection cord also generally reduces magnetic feedback. Reduce
the area of the loop! The connection wire to the loop must be firmly twisted or
closely parallel. Make a test installation. Always test the loop system to make sure
that it is powerful enough, that the overspill does not cause any problems, etc.
Adjust the height of the loop (1.2 to 2.0 m) to provide for the greatest possible
range with the smallest amount of overspill. Conducting materials, such as
reinforced concrete, can increase or decrease the area covered by the loop.
The magnetic field strength is often increased outside the loop, while it is
decreased inside. This fact considerably increases the risk of acoustic feedback.
In a new building, you should try to install an LOS system. The LOS system
makes it more difficult for the current to connect with large metal objects.
Pay particular attention to metal frames. Do not fasten the loop
to structural elements made of metal or similar objects

Infrared Systems
How does an infrared audio transmission system work?
An IR audio transmission system consists of at least one transmitter
and one receiver. The transmitter is connected to an audio source – to a
microphone system, for example – and transmits the signals received in the
form of infrared light impulses wirelessly to the receiver, which converts
the light impulse received into electrical audio signals and feeds them into
the reproduction device connected – into headphones, for example, or a
teleloop for the inductive direct transmission to hearing aids (see diagram).
Areas of application
Apart from the home environment, in which the wireless reception
of audio signals via infrared light has long since become a popular
alternative to the corresponding radiofrequency transmission
systems, this technology proves superior to all other transmission
principles for certain large professional applications.
This applies in particular to venues and facilities, in which the confidentiality
of the information exchanged there plays a decisive role, for example in
courtrooms or conference rooms, and areas, in which several transmission
systems are operated parallel to one another in neighbouring rooms,
such as in multiplex cinemas or in living quarters in social facilities.
In addition, infrared audio transmission systems have proven valuable in
schools and universities, in large auditoriums with partial signal coverage or
in city centres, in which there is a very high rate of radio frequency emissions.
Advantages of infrared transmission technology
• Infrared light signals cannot pass through walls, which reduces
reception to the room in which the transmitter is installed.
• Transmission is reliable and absolutely free of the interference
caused by electromagnetic fields or structural elements in the
building, such as metal reinforcements. In addition, these systems
do not produce any electromagnetic emissions themselves.
Coverage
While the range of systems designed for private use is limited to about
10 or 20 metres, high powered infrared transmitters are able to provide
coverage for much larger rooms. The transmitters described in this product
overview, for example, are able to provide coverage for up to 2600 m².
Other characteristics of infrared audio transmission systems:
• Portable/mobile systems are available.
• Multi-channel operation provides for flexible use, making it possible to
simultaneously transmit several different languages, for example.
Other factors affecting infrared transmission technology:
The transmitter does not focus the emission of the infrared
light impulses, i.e. it uses a very large transmission angle.
As a result, there is generally no need for a specific line of sight between the
transmitter and the receiver. The signals do not only travel directly between
the transmitter and the receiver, but are also reflected from the walls, ceilings
and floors. Nevertheless, pillars and furniture – depending on their size and
position – can interfere with or even block reception under certain conditions.
In any case, a technically correct, precise positioning of the
transmitters is required for optimal signal coverage.
• Light-coloured floor, wall and ceiling areas reflect infrared energy
more strongly. This can increase the reception range.
• Dark, low-reflection floors, ceilings and walls absorb the energy and
can limit reception ranges as a result. The carrier frequencies of 2.3
to 3.8 MHz (basic band) minimize the probability of interference
resulting from powerful lighting. However, functional problems
due to direct sun light cannot be ruled out altogether.
• In order to provide coverage for areas that exceed the maximum
range of the individual transmitters, it is necessary to install several
transmitters at different locations and connect them in parallel.
The signals are transmitted to the hearing aid via a special infrared
receiver with audio amplification equipped with a teleloop (induction).
If the receiver is equipped with an audio output jack, it is also possible to
use headphones or earphones. Amplifying infrared audio receivers are
available as pocket devices, ‘under the chin” receivers, headphones with
reception diodes or in the LR version with a teleloop and audio output.
If the reception range is the main criterion for the application in this
context, it is advisable to consider the use of a radio-frequency system
as an alternative – also taking into consideration the cost factor.

WIR TX 9 High-powered infrared transmitter (4 Channel)
WIR TX90 two-channel infrared transmitter
The TX9 infrared transmitter uses a wide emission angle and a typical roughly
circular geometry (see diagram below) to send signals into the room. The
operating bandwidth of 2.3 to 3.8 MHz guarantees interference-free operation,
unaffected by the extraneous light from other portions of the spectrum.
The two-channel TX90 infrared transmitter combines the modulator
and transmitter as one unit in a single enclosure. This design saves
money and does not take up a lot of room during transportation.
With a signal coverage of 2600 m² in one-channel operation, the
TX9 can also be used in large rooms. The connection of additional
TX9 transmitters increases or multiplies the reception range.
The system comes with a mounting kit for the wall and ceiling.
The TX9 is not equipped with a modulator function, which means that
the separately available MOD 232 modulator is required to connect
the system to the audio source and to process the signals.
The TX90 transmitter uses a wide angle for the efficient emission of
the infrared signals into the room to be provided with coverage. With
an operating bandwidth of 2.3 to 3.8 MHz, the transmission of the
TX90 is reliable and immune to the effects of extraneous light.
In 1-channel mode, the transmitter is able to cover up to 2600
m². With the addition of another TX9 transmitter, it is possible
to easily expand the reception range. The system includes
an installation kit for wall and ceiling mounting.

MOD 232 modulator A-4092-0
A-4903-0 under-the-chin receiver
The MOD 232 Modulator is connected to the audio source. It processes
these signals and sends them to the transmitter. The transmitter
then converts this data into infrared light impulses and sends them
out at a wide angle into the room to be provided with coverage.
Under-the-chin receiver weighing
less than 30 g for connection
to the RX22-4 receiver.
Conferences are often plagued by limited acoustic quality. That’s why the
MOD 232’s audio-processed signals focus on speech frequencies for wellbalanced good reproduction and reduce undesirable background noise. As
a result, people can listen to longer lectures and events without tiring.
Like the TX9 transmitter, the MOD 232 modulator also includes an
installation kit for wall and ceiling. Rack mounting kits also available.

RCI 102 two-channel infrared – under-the-chin receiver
RX22-4 infrared receiver
The RCI 102 is an ergonomically designed under-the-chin receiver that weighs
just 52 grams and is equipped with swivelling earpieces, which means that the
earpieces retain their position in the ear even when the user turns his/her head.
The RX22-4 is a portable four channel infrared receiver (pocket receiver),
which can be worn on a strap around the neck. The receiver is compatible
with all transmitters that operate at frequencies from 2.3 to 3.8 MHz.
The flexible material used to make the ear buds also nestles gently into the
auditory canal to effectively subdue any ambient noise.
The receiver is easy and convenient to use. It is limited to just two operating
elements: a knob for the combined on/off/volume function and a four-stage
switch for channel selection. The selective channel setting allows the listener
to select a language, for example, for simultaneously interpreted information.
Stereo or selective mono reception, e.g. for multi-language transmissions.
The RCI 102 is equipped with a switch to select the frequency channels. Both
channels are constantly active for stereo transmissions. If the event organizer
uses both the 2.3 MHz and the 2.8 MHz frequency ranges to transmit in two
different languages at the same time, the listener can select the channel in his/
her preferred language and receive the information in mono mode.
