Configurations & Architectural Specs


C5-1N C Series Single Loop Networkable Driver (5.0 Amps)

Architectural Specs

The C Series Single Loop Driver shall continuously deliver 5 A(RMS) when excited with a 1 kHz sine wave as measured with the IEC 62489-1 induction loop amplifier performance standard. Only drivers that have been tested and compliant to this IEC 62489-1 specification shall be accepted, no other substitutions will be allowed.

In a Perimeter Loop application it shall cover up to 240 sq. m (2,584 sq. ft.) each. The driver shall have a frequency response of at least 80Hz to 6.5kHz +/- 3 dB with THD+N less than 0.2%. The unit shall incorporate (AGC) Audio Gain Control optimized for speech with a compression dynamic range of >36 dB audio processing. The unit shall incorporate Dual Slope Metal Loss Correction to rectify frequency loss caused by adjacent metal structures. The unit shall incorporate built in test signals and shall be fully networkable with a Wi-Fi accessible standard browser based control panel for remote set-up, monitoring and email alerts.  The unit shall occupy one rack space and rack mount brackets shall be included. The Single Loop driver is tested to and compliant with: IEC 62489-1 induction loop amplifier performance standard.

The C5-1N C Series Single Loop Networkable Driver (5.0 Amps) is specified.

Qualification and Certification of the Contractor

Only AV Integration Firms/Dealers that have completed and are currently certified under specific manufacturer training to test, install, and commission along with providing a Certificate of Conformity in accordance with the IEC 60118-4 standard shall be eligible to bid upon this portion of this bid.

Standard Compliance

This product is designed to form part of a system that can meet all the requirements of the international loop performance standard IEC60118-4, and the relevant parts of BS7594. To fully meet requirements of these standards, correct design, installation, commissioning and maintenance are required. All specification data has been compiled in accordance with IEC62489-1, the international standard for audio frequency induction loop equipment. Specification data should only be compared with data compliant to this

Audio System

Frequency Response80Hz to 6.5kHz
DistortionTHD+N <0.3% 1kHz sine at full current
Automatic Gain ControlThe AGC is optimised for speech. Dynamic range >36dB
Metal Loss CorrectionCorrects system frequency response issues due to metal structures in a building. Gain constant at 1kHz, adjustable gain slope from 0 to 4dB per octave in 0.25dB increments. Custom 2 slope MLC allows different slopes and transition frequency to be set via the menu (network models only). This does not compensate for signal loss from metal structures which can be significant.
Phase ShiftUser selectable (web only) at 0° or 90° between outputs
