Product range



Launched in 2015, the LoopDrive Fault Isolator Module (FIM), was created to automatically detect any problems or failures on a loudspeaker line and isolate that section while ensuring messages are still being broadcast on the rest of the system.

The FIM is based on the return-loop principle. Modules are placed between groups of loudspeakers in a loop. If there is a short or other fault between any two isolators in the chain, both will switch immediately to open circuit status, which isolates the faulty loudspeakersection in between. Other isolators on the system, the loudspeakers on the loop and the T-branch speakers of the FIMs that have been activated will continue to operate as normal.
