Assistive listening specialists Contacta Systems Ltd have introduced the V14, the latest in their V-Series of large area hearing loop drivers.
The V14 has twice the power of the V7, enabling it to drive hearing loops of up to 300 metres in length. This makes it ideal for venues such as meeting rooms, lecture theatres and waiting rooms.
It has a Class-D amplifier output stage and an audio subsystem built around an advanced DSP core. Combined with a powerful CPU to ensure peak performance, the V14 uses cutting edge technology proven in the pro audio world to achieve life-like speech and first-class music reproduction.
Contacta have a 47 year history in the assistive hearing industry. The Kent-based company design, manufacture and install a unique range of assistive solutions including hearing loops, speech transfer products, queue management systems and secure transfer units.
Head of New Business Development at Contacta, Ran Meyrav, said;
“Our customers told us they wanted a driver powerful enough to suit larger venues and we have responded to that. We design with the installer in mind so we’ve maintained the simplicity seen in the previous models which make them so easy to use – the scroll wheel for adjusting the loop parameters and Euroblock connectors that make installation effortless.”
The V14 is also designed to minimise power consumption and continually self-tests. It has integrated protection circuits with temperature, voltage, short circuit and DC detection.
It is the latest in the company’s ‘V’ series of large area hearing loop drivers which launched in 2017 and includes the V7, a compact 7.5 volt, 5 amp driver and the V12a which features 5 amps , 12 volts RMS and a dual output for phased array loop configurations.
