PDA200E Wall Mounting Inducton Loop Amplifier

The PDA200E has revolutionised the induction loop marketplace by bringing the ability to understand, install and appreciate the technology involved to a whole new client base.

Straightforward internal screw connectors and preset controls mean no specialist audio experience or audio connectors are required. By following the simple set-up procedure, no further adjustments are necessary, allowing a top quality assistive listening system for the hard of hearing to be set-up in its entirety by new and experienced installers alike.

No less than four easy-to-access inputs are provided:

  • Balanced/unbalanced mic
    (with phantom power for use with electret mics)
  • Balanced/unbalanced line
    (for the connection of TV and other audio feeds)
  • Alert tone switch
    (a tone generator for use with doorbells, fire alarms, etc)
  • 100V line
    (for the connection of PA system audio feeds)

The amplifier's state-of-the-art current drive audio processing circuitry includes an automatic compressor/limiter which maintains the loop signal within a small dynamic range to improve intelligibility. Manual adjustments can also be made using the amplifier's internal tamperresistant drive, level and tone controls, allowing the system to be tailored to suit the exact requirements of any room.

Specifications
Specification Value
Power Requirements
Mains voltage 230V ac
Power consumption <80VA
Fuses Internal mains input fuse 1A 20 mm (HRC)
The PDA200E requires fixed mains wiring fed from a 3A fuse spur located no more than 3m from the amplifier.
Inputs
Three 5mm screw connector inputs are available - mic., line & 100V. If more than one is used, the signals are mixed.
Microphone
Input impedance 600Ω balanced/unbalanced
Sensitivity 2-5mV (-46db to -50db)
Phantom 12V
Line
Input impedance >10kΩ balanced/unbalanced
Sensitivity 0dbv (300mV rms to 1.5V rms)
100V Line
Input impedance 200kΩ
Sensitivity +40dbv
Alert Closing a volt-free switch across input generates a 2kHz tone through the loop.
Should additional inputs be required, the PDA200E is compatible with SigNET's outreach plate input extension system. This allows up to ten extra mic or line level inputs to be daisychained to the PDA200E. See our separate datasheet for details.
