Loopworks Measure overview
The Loopworks Measure App and R1 Receiver are supported by the Loopworks online database and reporting tools that automate the process of collecting data, creating certification or test reports that give users direct access to support from our loop experts. Loopworks Measure brings together excellent value, high performance measurement, and ease of use to create a new end-to-end Hearing Loop measurement system.
Measure R1 Receiver: The R1 Receiver is a high-quality audio induction loop receiver with a vertically mounted pickup coil designed to be used in conjunction with the Loopworks Measure iOS App. The Loopworks Measure App and R1 Receiver together make up the most accurate, dedicated end-to-end Hearing Loop measurement meter and testing tool available.
iOS device: Loopworks Measure will work with an iOS phone or tablet running iOS 8.0 or later. It requires an internet connection to set up, and to sync with the database, though is not required during testing. [Please note that until Android hardware provides more consistent and adequate audio performance, the Measure system will remain exclusively for iOS devices].
The App: The Receiver works via the App, which is available FREE from the iTunes store. The Loopworks Measure App + Receiver can be used in simple meter mode, and users can sign up for an account to access the full range of Loopworks functions and to save data or record audio. Create an account at https://loopworks.ampetronic.com. Loopworks: An Ampetronic?hosted database at https://loopworks.ampetronic.com, where all test data is stored, and data can be commented and edited into reports and test certificates. Distributor branding and contacts will be highly visible to all users, ensuring the distributor is the primary contact for customers.
Ampetronic will provide online training resources for the Measure platform. This includes a downloadable quick-start guide, a reference manual, a webinar introduction, and a number of instructional video packages. These will all be accessible through the Loopworks portal.
The Measure R1 device can be purchased direct from Listen Technologies website. The list price is $240. The purchase price of the Measure R1 includes free access to the Loopworks system for 12 months. After this time there will be a recurring fee each year to access the premium features of Loopworks, which also provides ongoing support and storage of data. Users not wishing to use the database will still be able to use Measure as a highly capable measurement tool, but without reporting or data storage.
Alistair Knight, Ampetronic Marketing and Communications Manager, stated, “We’ve had fantastic feedback from everyone who has seen the Loopworks Measure solution, and we’re confident that a significant proportion of Hearing Loop customers will be keen to order a Receiver and start using it.”
