Supermarkets Induction Loop Kits

Supermarket checkout induction (inductive) loop kits

When conventional induction loop systems such as those commonly used in banks and public buildings are installed at a checkout in a supermarket store they often do not cover the full length of the checkout, instead they only concentrate on covering the 'pay point'. The metal construction of the checkout and other metal objects in the store causes unacceptable levels of interference and prohibits the system working to its optimum performance. This results in poor loop transmission and an unacceptable low level of sound to the hearing aid user. If the conventional type of loop system is installed it will almost certainly fail to meet the requirements of the DDA and British Standards 'BS6083 Part 4'.

Suitable for:

  • euro-till checkouts
  • delicatessen counters
  • customer services
  • kiosk

Introduction

When an induction loop system is installed people who are hearing impaired can use the hearing aid set to the ‘T’ position. The telecoil in the hearing aid picks up the magnetic waves produced by the loop system. A direct copy of the audio signal reaching the directional microphone is now 'induced' in this coil and the hearing aid converts this electrical signal back to audible sound for the wearer to hear. In this way, someone sitting in the room can clearly hear all conversation - simply by being close to the suspended induction loop sign.
