IEC 60118-4 standard defines how the loop system should marked
Induction loop standard 60118-4 defines how the loop system should be marked. As a result of Qlu-mapping you will get signage which will fulfill the requirements of the standard.
The purpose of Qlu-mapping is to ensure that hearing aid users, and the personnel responsible of the maintenance of the system will get addequate information and ensure that the system works according international IEC 60118-4 standard.
Information provided to hearing aid users
Rooms equipped with hearing loop system should have
- A sign should be placed in a prominent position close to the entrance, or entrances where there are more than one, of the area where an induction loop is installed. The sign shall be of sufficient size to be easily read and constructed of durable material.
- A plan indicating the useful magnetic field volume should be placed beside the above-mentioned sign or incorporated in it.
- The name, or position, of the person responsible for the proper operation of the loop system and how to contact them should also be given.
Clear instructions on how to use the induction-loop system should be available to hearing aid users on request.
For small area induction-loop systems e.g. window counters, a sign should be placed in a prominent position where the hearing aid user is expected to be normally situated.
Qlu-mapping produces required information
As the end result of Qlu-mapping, aka induction loop quality mapping, such a signs will be produced.
Induction loop quality map is an accurate induction loop quality and coverage map place in top of the blue print of the space/room. The quality map include also instruction for hearing aid users and The name, or position, of the person responsible for the proper operation of the loop system and how to contact them. In addition to the standard requirements the quality map includes a QR-code which will lead to the room information in www.hereuhear.com service. Hereuhear.com has the induction loop quality map and feedback channel to the venue owner.
