Vehicle Loop Amplifier System Brochure download

The Nortek Vehicle Loop Amplifier System (V.L.A.S) is a two channel audio-frequency induction loop system (AFILS) product intended for passenger carrying vehicles. Available in both Cab / Saloon and Dual Saloon models it can drive two separate induction loops in dual zone configuration and is designed for use with Nortek Hearing loop coil pads, which provide localised hearing loop areas.

This system is designed for Bus, Tram & other Public Transport vehicle installations. Typically one loop is assigned to the cab area to facilitate communication between the driver and passenger. The other loop is assigned to the saloon area for use with the vehicle’s integral announcement system (e.g. iBUS) or our Nortek Large Multi-Messaging Unit.

A microphone input is provided for the cab area.  A speaker level input is
provided for the saloon area for direct connection to external Audio or In-Vehicle Messaging Systems.

Unlike many domestic hearing loop products our system is designed and warrantied for continuous operation in the Automotive Environment, and is CE, UKCA and E-Marked.

A headphone output is provided to aid the installation process.
