Components

STS-A31H - Amplifier

Built in an ABS plastic case, with lugs to be screwed to the underside of the counter, the STS-A31H amplifier provides two channels of full open duplex communication, with a loop drive compliance bounded by 4V RMS and 3V RMS. The gain on each channel can be adjusted independently with volume controls. All connections are via two pin plugs. Microphone cable is screened, loudspeaker and induction loop are twin wires.

STS-SJB and STS-SJB-RJ - Breakout boxes

These are both designed to enable the use of headsets in place of the staff microphone/loudspeaker. This gives for a quieter environment in places such as ticket booths, service points or where multiple vendors are nearby. A push button allows for muting. These units are identical other than the STS-SJB has headphone and microphone inputs and outputs via 3.5mm connections whilst the STS-SJB-RJ has a single RJ11 connection for both headphone and microphone. Connection to STS-A31H amplifier is via 2-pin removable terminal-block connector ('Euroblock').

Dimensions: 20x117.6x39 (HxWxD) mm. Weight: 100g.

STS-SU1-G , STS-SU1-B, STS-SU1-SS - Combined microphone and loudspeaker

The cardioid microphone capsule with a frequency response of 150Hz-10.5kHz and a sensitivity of 49.5dB (at 1kHz), is positioned at the upper end of a semi-rigid stem with adjustable neck. The loudspeaker is rated at 5W RMS with an SPL output of 1W at 1m 85dB.

Dimensions (HxWxD): 370x95x150 (HxWxD) mm. Weight: 820g.

STAFFMIC-01-NWB - Free standing microphone

This manufactured in mild steel for durability. A 300mm flexible gooseneck is attached to a round base with a diameter of 70mm to give a total height of 340mm and weight of 950g. The microphone has a cardioid pick-up pattern, a frequency response of 150Hz - 10.5kHz and a sensitivity of 49.5dB at 1kHz.

IL-RX20 - Loop Listener

The IL-RX20 Loop Listener is a compact listening device designed for use and interaction with hearing loop systems whereby an engineer can listen to the hearing loop system as though they were wearing a compatible hearing aid switched to the 'T' position. The two included alkaline AAA batteries will give more than 100 hours life; a rotary volume control doubles as on/off switch. An LED illuminates to signify power on. The included headphones are connected via 3.5mm jack socket located on the top of the IL-RX20.

Dimensions: 240x165x40 (HxWxD) mm. Weight: 550g, with headphones.
