6 ox.eu American National Standard Institute has many abbreviations for T-coil functions 3.4 Terms relating to measurements with inductive inputs high frequency average SPL for an inductive telephone simulator (HFA-SPLITS). The high frequency average of the SPLITS levels (see Clause 3.4.5). The abbreviation for this term is HFASPLITS high frequency average SPL in a vertical magnetic field (HFA-SPLIV). The high- frequency average of the SPLIV levels (see Clause 3.4.6). The abbreviation for this term is HFA-SPLIV relative simulated equivalent telephone sensitivity (RSETS). Difference in decibels obtained by subtracting the RTG + 60 dB SPL from the HFA-SPLITS. The abbreviation for this term is RSETS relative test loop sensitivity (RTLS). Difference in decibels obtained by subtracting the RTG + 60 dB SPL from the HFA-SPLIV. The abbreviation for this term is RTLS sound pressure level for an inductive telephone simulator (SPLITS). Sound pressure level developed in the coupler by a hearing aid with the gain control at the RTS when the input is the magnetic field generated by a Telephone Magnetic Field Simulator (refer to Clause 3.2.5). The abbreviation for this term is SPLITS sound pressure level in a vertical magnetic field (SPLIV). Sound pressure level developed in the coupler by a hearing aid with the gain control at the RTS when the input is a 31.6 mA/m sinusoidal alternating magnetic field parallel to the vertical reference and the input selector of the hearing aid set to T-position. The abbreviation for this term is SPLIV. Good News, ANSI S3.22 committee has decided to make T-coil specification mandatory for quality test inspection

18 ox.eu Increased low frequency response Increased low frequency response Hum harmonics remover Hum harmonics remover Default sensitivity should follow the standard of 400mA/m (125ms, RMS) Default sensitivity should follow the standard of 400mA/m (125ms, RMS) If the sensitivity is set higher in the Hearing Instrument there is a strong risk for high distortion, clipping/saturation when entering a correct installed Loop System. A weak loop must not be compensated by increasing the T-coil sensitivity with a decreased Signal to Noise ratio.
