HEADSET LINE IN-USE INDICATOR with AMPLIFIER
 

  STOP Interruptions!








Handset or Headset
In-Use Indicator
with Amplifier



Everybody hates it when someone walks up and starts talking to them while they're on the phone, but how do you know they're on the phone?









 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



Bright Red Large LED Glows when you're talking.

Handset and Headset In-Use Indicator Amplifier Control

Amplifier

/ Control Box with Volume Control plugs
in-series with the handset or a headset with an amplifier.

It comes with an AC Power Cube.




If you have a headset that plugs directly into the phone with no separate amplifier, you'll need our Recording & In-Use Headset Adapter (below).

The In-Use Amplifier won't boost the volume on your headset when connected that way, but the big red LED will light when you're on the phone!

NOTE: The Headset In-Use Indicator only works with a handset or headset with modular handset type plugs. It won't work on Cordless or Cellular type phones with a 3.5mm or 2.5mm jack.

Our Headset In-Use Indicator combines our In-Line Amplifier with an In-Use Light to let everybody know when someone is on their phone so they aren't disturbed.

Bright Red Large LED is plugged into the base by a 12' 3.5mm cord (included).

  • Know when your co-workers are on the phone!

  • Both the Light and Amplifier work on ANY business phone with a dial in the base
       and where you can hear yourself in your ear when you talk (has sidetone), except RCA and GE

  • Use on a Cubical, on Top of a Monitor or ???

  • Works equally well with Handsets or Headsets with Amplifiers (it's really nice to raise
       the level on the headset amp sometimes!)

  • Connects In-Series with Headset Amplifier or Handset

  • Easy-to-Use Slide Volume Control

  • Comes with Easy-to-See BIG Bright Red LED

  • Requires a 110V AC outlet near the desk for the power cube (included)

DELUXE HANDSET RECORDING ADAPTER

Deluxe Handset Recording Adapter




Record Conversations from your Phone
to your PC or Stand-Alone Recorder

 



DELUXE Adapter works with PCs and Stand-Alone Recorders

Just plug it in between the handset cord and the phone!

Because the Deluxe Handset Recording Adapter outputs the same audio you hear on your handset, which has exactly the right mix of your voice and the caller's voice, your recordings will sound great!

If you record directly from a regular phone line instead of the handset, your voice is usually much louder than the callers voice, making the recordings difficult to listen to.

Plug the modular cord into the handset jack on the phone, and plug the handset cord into the Deluxe Handset Recording Adapter. Then plug the 3.5mm Stereo Audio Cord into the mic or line jack on the PC sound card, or into a stand-alone recorder.

Use your PC's sound recording application, or just start recording on your recorder.

There is no volume control on the Deluxe Handset Recording Adapter, so you'll need to adjust the volume on your computer or recorder.

The Deluxe Handset Recording Adapter works on analog, digital or VoIP phones with the dial in the base. It won't work on cordless or dial-in-handset (Trimline style) phones because the signal is different on that type of handset cord. For those types of phones, use our Phone Line Audio Coupler (below).

On digital phones, the only place to get analog audio to record is from the handset cord. If you need to send the calls to a Voice Logger at a central location instead of to the local PC or tape recorder, send the audio back to the central recorder on a spare pair to the phone room, and cross-connect that pair to the central recorder.

NOTE: Some crappy VoIP phones don't have sidetone, which means you can't hear your own voice in your ear when you're speaking. On those types of VoIP phones, the Deluxe Handset Recording Adapter will only record the outside caller (half the conversation).

Because the Deluxe Handset Recording Adapter is transformer isolated, it will prevent hum in your recordings. If you hear a hum with your current recording device, you need this Deluxe Handset Recording Adapter which is transformer isolated.

This is the best single channel PC recording software we've found which has VOX - voice activation, which makes it totally automatic:

SB Win Logger

14 Foot cord with a Handset Plug on one end and a 3.5mm Audio Plug on the other end.

Use this cord to get the audio from the receiver wires on the handset into a recorder or PC mic input.

This cord has no connection to the mic wires from the handset, only the receiver wires... Which normally contain both sides of the conversation (if you can hear yourself when you talk into the handset).

RECORDING / PLAYBACK & IN-USE HEADSET ADAPTER








Recording & In-Use Headset Adapter





Even though the Modular Headset Jack on some business phones looks like a handset jack, it's NOT!  It's physically the same jack, but it's wired differently so you can't plug a handset into that jack (you can, but it won't work).

That means that you can't use any accessories made to be used with a handset, because the wires aren't in the right place.

Our Recording / Playback & In-Use Adapter plugs into the jack for the headset. You then plug your headset into the jack labeled for the Headset Only. The other jack is wired to like a regular handset jack. That allows you to use accessories made to be used with a handset.

Note that the real handset for that phone probably won't work correctly on our adapter because besides the wiring change, there may be a polarity and gain difference on the headset transmitter circuit. But it will work well for recording while on a headset on the phone, sending audio from a PC back into the phone while the user is on their headset, and for our Orator II which gives you an amplifier and speaker so others in the room can hear the same conversation while you're on your headset (or handset, or even on a regular analog phone line).

Adapter lets you:

  • Use our Headset In-Use Indicator on a Headset without an amplifier  

  • Record conversations using our Deluxe Handset Recording Adapter from a headset without a headset amplifier (plugged directly into a modular headset jack on a phone).  

  • Playback music or audio using our Handset Audio Feeder into a headset without a headset amplifier (plugged directly into a modular headset jack on a phone).  

  • Connect our Orator II Speaker to a headset jack to the conversation can be heard by others in the room

iPhone 3.5mm AUDIO ADAPTER CORD

iPhone 3.5mm Audio Adapter Cord



iPhone 3.5mm Recording / Playback Audio Adapter Cord

Works with Smartphones, Tablets and Laptops





You NEED this cord if you're going to play music or audio or record from / into an iPod, Smartphone, Tablet or Laptop with the Speaker and Mic jacks combined into one 3.5mm 4 conductor plug.

There are two 3.5mm stereo jacks. One with a Microphone icon and one with a Headset (Speaker) icon. To record into your device, use the jack with the Mic icon. To play audio from your device, use the jack with the Headset icon. You can record and playback at the same time if  your device supports that.

4 conductor Smartphone Type 3.5mm Plug


If the headset that came with your device has four parts to the plug,
you need this Adapter Cord when you're using
a separate Mic and Speaker:





Works well when using your Smartphone to record phone calls, like with our Deluxe Handset Recording Adapter, or to feed music or other audio from our Handset Audio Feeder.

Great for playing music from your Smartphone or iPod for Music-on-Hold (MOH) on your phone system.

NOTE: There are many devices like this on the market that are much cheaper. This is the only one we've found that works right.

Solid Wire Modular Cord

15' Long - Wired Straight Through

The Handiest Thing You
Can Have In Your Case!


Cut them in-half to get 2 Cords

Telephone Gray Color to Match
the Wiring at the Frame

2 Pair

You can't punch down stranded cable!

4 Pair

2 Pair, 3 Pair and 4 Pair Cords.





Carry some of these in your truck!

You can make solid wire modular cords yourself,
but this has got to be faster, easier and cheaper!



These are professionally made, and tested (which is why there's a mod plug on both ends).

Connect a modular device to a 66 or 110 Block, beanie it on to an existing wire...

Or lots of other uses that make these a must have in your truck!

Make your own Octopus Cable:

By plugging these Critical+ Solid Wire Cords into the mod jacks on a phone system, gateway, ATA or other modular device, you can tie wrap them in a bundle towards the 66 Block, where it will look neat when you cut the wires down. With an Octopus Cable, you'll have extra wire for each of the mod cords, so your installation will look like a mess unless you spend a lot of time dressing the cable (somehow?).

ORATOR II DESKTOP SPEAKER / AMPLIFIER

Orator II

 

 

 

 

 

 

Orator II Desktop Monitor Speaker / Amplifier

Nice Loud Speaker with Volume Control

Built-in 3.5mm Headset Jack for Private Listening

 


The Orator II has a modular cord that plugs into a phone line and lets you monitor conversations on the line - without disturbing either party talking on the line.

There are no clicks, no pops, nobody on the line can tell you're listening.

Modular cord plugs into an analog phone line. There's a jack on the Orator II to plug in a phone (not needed if you don't want to talk or dial).

The Orator II presents a high impedance to the line so it won't take the line off-hook. One-way speaker (not a speakerphone) will broadcast the entire conversation (all parties on the line) through the speaker.

A very nice general use desktop amplifier, with a zillion uses!

  • Monitor a phone line with the Orator II from any office in the building, without disturbing the line itself.
  • Put the Orator II next to a business phone system phone, and monitor everything that's being said (requires Orator II Handset Adapter, below).
  • Broadcast a conference call over the Orator II in a conference room where you don't want to use a speakerphone, or the speakerphone speaker isn't loud enough.
  • Broadcast a conference call in multiple conference rooms or offices.
  • Listen to the actual conversation on emergency fire and rescue calls coming into a Fire Station, in one or multiple rooms.

Great for training!

If you're speaking on a phone in the same room face the Orator II away from you so you won't get feedback.

Comes with a 7' Modular mounting cord for a regular analog phone line, and a 110VAC Power Cube.

To connect it to the handset of an electronic phone, see the Orator II Handset Kit (below).

EXCLUSION (PRIVACY) DEVICE

If you want to share a phone line, this is the easiest way!

The Exclusion/Privacy Device is for sharing lines between phones, modems, credit card machines, etc.

Keep in mind that this device will let you share phone lines for both incoming and outgoing calls, but they have no way of routing incoming calls. That means that only one of the devices should be allowed to automatically answer the line!

We get lots of calls from people wanting Line In-Use indicators, so they know when the modem or phone is in-use and they don't interrupt the call when making an outbound call. The Exclusion/Privacy Adapter will do it automatically.

Then we get calls from people who want A/B Switches, to manually switch a line between two or more phone. The Exclusion/Privacy Adapter will do it automatically for outbound calls.

Important Note! These devices work on the Voltage Drop principal! A standard phone line has 48VDC (or so) of talk battery, which drops to 6 - 15VDC when a phone is taken off hook. The Privacy Devices are placed in front of each phone or modem, and know that the line is busy (off-hook) if the voltage drops below a threshold of 24VDC. If the talk battery is below 24V, the device won't conduct electricity so the phone won't be able to pick up the line. Because of that, you can't use the regular Privacy Devices on Key System or PBX stations that have 24V talk battery (use our 24V Privacy Chip which has a 12V threshold).

You can't use these on very long cable runs because the voltage doesn't drop much on the other run when you go off hook. If the voltage doesn't drop below the threshold of the Privacy Device, the Privacy Device won't exclude.

Keep these facts in mind when using these:

  • They must be put in front of each device that you want to be excluded from the line when it is busy (you can't just put it in front of the phone you don't want interrupted).
  • You can't put two of these in-series!
  • Some Credit Card Terminals (and other devices) already have these built-in, so if you can't use a Privacy Device on these terminals (can't put two in-series).
  • The telephones or other devices have to be within a couple of hundred feet of one another. They generally won't work between buildings.
  • These will only work on phone lines with 48 Volt talk battery (the only 24V Privacy Device we have is the 24V Privacy Chip).

48V HARDWIRE PRIVACY DEVICE

White/Blue in and White/Blue out.

Put one in-series with the pair going to each phone.




Put one on the pair to each phone or device. Put it at the NI, the frame, on a 66 block, at the jack, or even inside the phone (not a good idea since you can lose track of it if you need to replace the phone).

One side of the Hardwire Privacy Device is punched down on the 66 block, and the station cable (or jumper wire) is 'beanied' to the other end. Includes beanies.

24V EXCLUSION / PRIVACY CHIP

It looks like a diode, but it's not! It only works on PBX or Key System Stations, or VoIP devices with 24V talk battery.

Use one in-series with either the tip or ring going to the phone (it doesn't matter which).

Put one at the frame, on a 66 block, or at the jack. If you put it at the frame, you may need to put one on both the tip and ring to prevent an imbalance. The longer the cable run, the better the chance you will hear hum or other noise on the line caused by the imbalance. Putting it on both the tip and ring will keep the line balanced (tip and ring the same length).

One end of the Privacy Chip is easily punched down on a 66 block, and the station cable (or jumper wire) is 'beanied' to the other end.

If you put it at the jack, it's unlikely you'll need to put one on both the tip and ring, since there's only the mounting cord (around 7') after it.

Only works with 24VDC talk battery, like you'd see from an analog station port or VoIP device. It won't work on a regular 48V phone line.

RINGER CUT-OFF SWITCH

Our Ringer Cut-off Switch STOPS phones from ringing... but you can still call out!

ONLY works on analog phones, not electronic system phones.

Great for turning off your ringers at night.

Use it to stop your Fax Line from ringing your phones (but you can still make outbound calls), or to prevent guests from knowing your phone is ringing.

  • Outgoing calls are not affected
  • ON/OFF Switch
  • Indicator light flashes to remind you the phones aren't ringing
  • Modular In & Out Jacks
  • Must be installed IN FRONT of the phone or phones you don't want to ring.

IMPORTANT NOTE: There is a trace you can cut under either the Manual or Automatic Ringer Cut-Off Switch that will disconnect the phone(s) connected in-series with it entirely (not just shut off the ringer). Remember that it's not safe to do this if no other phones are available to make emergency calls!

AUTOMATIC RINGER CUT-OFF SWITCH

Turn the ringer off automatically - especially convenient at night!

Automatic Ringer Cut-off Switch

It's not safe to turn the whole phone off, since you couldn't reach 911 in an emergency.

Controlled through a regular AC outlet. Includes an AC Adapter (Power Cube) that you can plug into a lamp timer (available at hardware stores, or below).

IMPORTANT NOTE: We can make this disconnect the line entirely instead of just shutting off the ringer, on both the Manual and Automatic Ringer Cut-Off Switch. It will disconnect the phone(s) connected in-series with it entirely (not just shut off the ringer). Remember that it's not safe to do this if no other phones are available to make emergency calls! Be sure to mention it if you want us to make it that way for you.

Making it so it will kill the phones entirely is great for factory phones that need to be shut-off entirely after 5PM.

AutoHybrid AUTO ANSWER  PHONE LINE INTERFACE

AutoHybrid Auto Answer Telephone Line Interface

AutoHybrid Auto Answer
Telephone Line Interface




SENDS and RECEIVES Audio to AND/OR  from a Phone Line!

Works with PCs, Tape Recorders, Broadcast Audio Lines and PA Systems

The AutoHybrid is perfect for broadcasters who need to monitor remote locations, IFB feeds, back-up audio feeds, and many simple studio, conferencing, and PA telephone interface applications.

At a church, it will let callers dial into the service automatically (needs one dedicated REAL phone line with CPC and one AutoHybrid per caller).

At a remote broadcast transmitter, it will let you dial into the transmitter to monitor the audio feed, or send audio to the transmitter if the main feed is down (needs a dedicated REAL phone line with CPC for automatic operation).

Sometimes you just need something to answer a line with silence, which would allow you to use a DTMF Relay or similar device for touch tone remote control, and then hang-up automatically... ready for the next call. The AutoHybrid is a great way to automatically answer and hang-up a real phone line with CPC, for applications other than sending or receiving audio.

The AutoHybrid gives you simultaneous send and/or receive audio through regular 2 wire analog telephone lines.

It's full duplex audio, so it will send and receive audio at the same time, with 20db of separation (between transmit and receive).

If you understand mix-minus, you can use the AutoHybrid with a mixer with (an AUX output) to produce a professional call-in show (there are various video tutorials on mix-minus on youtube... some good and some bad).

Automatically answer a call by leaving it in the Auto mode, or simply push the Call button to answer the call, or the Drop button to hang-up the phone line. When off-hook, you can send or receive audio.

NOTE: The AutoHybrid needs to be on a real phone line with a CPC signal to tell it to hang-up (half a second of zero volts), or it will tie up the line forever in Auto mode. It will work OK on a phone line without CPC by manually taking it on or off-hook using the CALL or DROP button.

Most phone systems (PBXs) don't have CPC on the analog station ports. You may be able to create a CPC using our Universal CPC Generator.

Also note that the AUTO button tells the AutoHybrid to answer on the first ring. That means that you won't get Caller ID since it comes between the first and second ring (and will be lost since the line is answered on the first ring).

AutoHybrid Auto Answer Telephone Line Interface - Front and Rear


Professional audio gear!

PHONE LINE POWERED!
No AC Adapter needed!

We can't sell this to end users because we can't offer
end user support. Professional broadcasters or AV technicians
will know what to do with the AutoHybrid without our support.


You absolutely need cables with XLR connectors, or our
XLR to RCA Adapters (below).


The AutoHybrid is a passive line powered device. It doesn't use AC power, and doesn't provide amplification in or out (use a mixer or pre-amp for that).

Includes RJ-11 Modular jacks for Phone Line and Phone Equipment, an LED that indicates when the line is off-hook, XLR connectors for audio in (Send) and out (Caller), Null control to adjust the send volume level (on Caller connector), and screw terminals that allow you to make your own remote control to take the AutoHybrid on or off-hook from the control room (while the AutoHybrid is mounted in your 19 inch audio rack).

Remote control Screw Terminals are for:

  • Off-hook control  (+5 VDC momentary)
  • Release control  (+5 VDC momentary)
  • OH LED signal  (pulled to ground on OH)

Because the AutoHybrid is transformer isolated, it will prevent hum in your recordings and over a PA system.

Small desktop unit converts to rack-mount using the optional 19 inch Rack Mount (below), which can hold up to four AutoHybrid units.

MAKE BUSY SWITCH

Make Busy Switch

The Make Busy Switch throws a short on the phone line, which will make it ring busy on incoming calls.

It simply turns off the phone line, so you can't make or receive calls, and incoming callers hear a busy signal.

Great for turning off a second or third line that hunts from the first line so you can use one answering machine, or turning off the phone line so you're not disturbed.

  • Indicator light to remind you that the line is busy
  • Modular In & Out Jacks
  • Can be installed anywhere on a phone line.

HANDSET AUDIO FEEDER™

Handset Audio Feeder

Play Audio from your PC, MP3 Player, CD
or PA Amplifier into your Phone's Handset


Speed Dial from your PC or MP3 Player, or play
Pre-Recorded Greetings or Sales Pitches to a Caller!



Make the World's Biggest Speed Dialer using the
Handset Audio Feeder™, and your computer or MP3 Player!

Just plug it in between the handset cord and the phone!

Plug the included 3.5mm Stereo Cord with Stereo Y Adapter into your PC's sound card or an MP3 player's headset jack, and feed the audio into your phone

The Handset Audio Feeder™ works with any telephone that uses an electret  type of microphone in the handset (which is in most modern phones), and where the dial is in the base (not in the handset).

To speed dial, you would need an application to "play" the Touch Tones back at the right speed, in the right order, with the right amount of pause between each digit.

A FREE Windows DTMF dialing application that lets you create a speed dial list is available at:

http://www.silverstones.com/DTMFDial.html

A shareware Windows DTMF dialing application that lets you create a speed dial list, which is around $30 to register, is available at:

http://www.phonedialerpro.com/#PDP

If you use Phone Dialer Pro, be sure to go into Options and click Dial without Modem, which will send dialing through the sound card. This program lets you assign a hot key to capture phone numbers off your PC screen, and even right click to dial a phone number from a web page.

You don't have to use any PC application to dial... Except a
wav or MP3 playing program, or an audio (MP3) player.

Just record yourself dialing a phone number with our Deluxe Handset Recording Adapter, save it to a name like MikeSandmanOffice.wav, and play it back when you want to dial. Many music players let you make categories for songs which you can use to sort your speed dial numbers, and they allow you to hit the first letter of the name of the file to find a particular tune (speed dial number in this case!).

Click HERE to listen to the speed dial for our office.

If you have a 256 Meg MP3 Player, which is about the smallest you can get today, you could store 2,500 of the wav files like the one above (which is around 90K). A 2500 number speed dialer that fits in the palm of your hand, and sits nicely next to the phone on your desk!

If you had a Handset Audio Feeder™, you just play that wav file (recording of the digits) from your computer or audio player, and it will dial the number in the recording. Again, to make an audio recording of the dialing, you'll need our Deluxe Handset Recording Adapter to record the dialing to sound files on your computer (and then transfer them to your MP3 player, if desired).

To play back a sales pitch or greeting (to save your voice!), you'll need the Deluxe Handset Recording Adapter attached to the handset jack of your phone to record yourself. You only need it while you're recording what you want to say, so you only need one per office if that's what you're using it for. That will let you use the sound recorder application that came with your computer to record the sales pitch.

By using the same handset or headset as you do on normal calls, the recording you make will sound like you're speaking live when you play that recording to the person on the phone. If you use a computer microphone or regular tape recorder to record the sales pitch, it won't match - and it will sound silly.

Click HERE to listen to Mike's greeting, recorded to his PC using the Deluxe Handset Recording Adapter.

Notice that it sounds like Mike is talking on the phone, so if he clicks PLAY on his PC wav player, the caller wouldn't know the greeting was recorded. That would be very handy if you have to repeat a long sales pitch numerous times every day!

Because the Handset Audio Feeder™ connects to the handset cord (not the wall jack), it will feed audio into almost any phone made (with a dial in the base), including electronic, digital and VoIP phones (since the handset cord is always analog audio). It won't work with cordless phones or Trimline type phones with the dial-in-handset (the handset cord on those phones don't contain the same signals as a regular phone).

To send or receive audio to cordless and Trimline type dial-in-handset phones, use our Phone Line Audio Coupler, that connects directly to an analog phone line or station port (instead of to the handset jack).

You can send almost any audio through the handset on your phone!  To play the audio from a PC or PA system through your phone's handset, all of the audio sent to the 3.5mm Stereo Cord will be heard by the person on the other end of the call. Connect it to the headset jack on a tape recorder, Line Out or Speaker Out on a PC sound card, or a 600 ohm line level output on a PA amplifier (don't connect it to a 70V speaker line output, but it will probably work OK on an 8 ohm speaker output).

There is no volume control on the Handset Audio Feeder™, so you'll need to adjust the volume on your computer or audio player for best match. There is a switch on the Handset Audio Feeder™ that allows you to turn on or off the audio feed from your PC, so the caller won't hear You've Got Mail or other sounds that normally play on your PC.

Because the Handset Audio Feeder™ is transformer isolated, it will prevent hum and distortion in the audio being sent from your computer or audio player.

NOTES:

The Handset Audio Feeder™ only sends the LEFT channel to the phone. This shouldn't matter in most cases, but you may have to switch the computer or audio player to MONO in your particular application. You can place a special order for a Handset Audio Feeder™ that sends a mono signal from both the LEFT and RIGHT channels to your handset, but if you plug it into your PC with the included Stereo Y Adapter, you'll always hear a MONO signal from the PC's speakers - that are also plugged into the Stereo Y Adapter.

Some VoIP phones don't have sidetone (you can't hear your own voice in the receiver while you're speaking), in which case you won't hear the audio that's going down the phone line (but they will hear it on the other end of the call).

Custom and Private Label versions available.

ULTIMATE CALL HANDLER

Ultimate Call Handler

THIS BOX DOES EVERYTHING!

Well... Almost Everything!

The Ultimate Call Handler uses One Phone Line, which MUST have the 3-Way Calling Feature from a US Phone Company. Because it uses the Phone Company's 3-Way Calling feature to connect calls together, the volume on all calls is perfect (unlike other devices or phone systems that use two separate phone lines, which cause serious low volume problems).

While you can't do all of these things at the same time with the Ultimate Call Handler, you can use two features - like the WATS Extender feature by simply entering your PIN number before the Ultimate Call Handler starts to dial when Diverting, Transferring or doing a Call Back. Very slick!

  • Call Bridge - WATS Extender
    • Call into unit, enter security code, dial anywhere in the world!
    • Dial #8 to make another call... without hanging up!
    • The Caller ID that's sent is for the line the Ultimate Call Handler is connected to.
    • Gives you a perfect connection.

  • Call Diverter - Call Forwarder
    • Reprogram the destination number anytime, from anywhere.
    • Record 8 second "greeting" telling caller to "wait a moment."
    • Can divert to a second number if no answer on the first one.
    • Eliminates phone company's "Call Forwarding" charge.
    • Set to Divert on 1st to 10th ring (gives you time to pick up the line).

  • Call Transfer to Another Number from PBX or Centrex Lines
    • Requires Centrex, or a PBX "CO Hookflash" feature code on the analog station port the Ultimate Call Handler is connected to.
    • Can transfers a caller directly into a voicemail box after X rings.
    • Requires no integration between voicemail and phone system.
    • Allows combination of Call Forwarding to a number, with Call Transfer to voicemail extension (up to 5 digits) if no answer!

  • Call Back - International Long Distance Saver
    • Record 18 second "message" (remotely), telling hotel operator to transfer the call to a particular room (repeated once).
    • Dial into the ULTIMATE CALL HANDLER from the Call Back number, and hang up after 1 ring. It then calls you back so you can enter your PIN to make a call.
    • Dial #8 to make another call... without hanging up.
    • Reprogram the Call Back number and "message" anytime.
    • Also works as Call Forwarder (with 8 second greeting), sending callers to the same foreign number used for Call Back.
    • More privacy than using a "Call Back" service provider.
    • Savings of up to 80% over foreign phone company billing.

Great for Answering Services... Put one at each Subscriber's phone, to see his number on Caller ID (you'll know how to answer the line!).

Great for Transferring Calls OFF PREMISE... Route calls through an Automated Attendant on a PBX or Key System, with NO Loss of Volume!

To transfer calls off-premise, you need to have 3-Way Calling on the CO lines, route the call to an analog port, and know the code to do a CO hookflash from an analog station (something like #6 on Panasonic). The will be no loss of volume when you transfer calls this way.

Features:

  • Non-Volatile EEPROM Memory
  • Programmable 4 digit security code
  • Program on-site or remotely
  • No computer connection - Everything is DTMF
  • Works with fax machines and modems
  • Disconnects based on call timer duration (hit any digit if you hear the warning tone), CPC signal, or 2.5 minutes of silence
  • Operates from 110V AC Power Cube (included)
  • FCC Registered

When using the Ultimate Call Handler as a WATS Extender or during programming, you are prompted with beeps. There are no voice prompts (to prevent hackers from accessing your line), so you'll have to use the Ultimate Call Handler for a day or two to get used to its operation. A "technically challenged" person may never be able to use the Ultimate Call Handler.

Callers who are simply being transferred or diverted won't hear any beeps or have to enter anything, they'll just be transferred like they were calling the second number directly. There is a short delay while the Ultimate Call Handler quickly hookflashes and dials the second number, during which you can record a short message like Please Wait One Moment if you'd like.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The Ultimate Call Handler is made to use standard US style 3-Way Calling, where you can hookflash as soon as you're done dialing the second party's phone number. In other countries, and with most VoIP devices, after you dial the phone number for the second party, you MUST wait for the second party to answer before hookflashing, so the Ultimate Call Handler won't work on VoIP or in other countries where you can't hookflash until the outside party answers.

CPC TESTER

CPC Signal Tester CPC Signal Tester

CPC stands for Calling Party Control

The CPC Tester will tell you whether you're getting a CPC signal,
which tells your system the trunk has hung-up.

In the US a CPC signal is an open loop (0VDC), typically for 800ms. If the telephone equipment is programmed to detect an open for 500ms (usually called Open Loop Disconnect Time in the system programming), the phone system will hang-up the trunk when it detects the 0 volts for 500ms (even though the open loop continues until 800ms).

Without the CPC Signal, voice mail, answering machines, dictation machines and any other automatic telephone equipment won't hang-up when the outside party hangs-up.

The CPC Tester makes it incredibly easy to see if you're getting a CPC signal, and what the duration is. Once you know if you're getting a CPC and the duration, you can program the phone system to detect an open for that amount of time.

The CPC Tester also detects a reversal, which is no longer used in the US (since the last Step-by-Step switch was upgraded). Battery Reversal is still used in some foreign countries as a CPC signal, which means that foreign telephone equipment used in the US probably won't detect an Open Loop Disconnect.

It's easy to use:

  • Plug it into the line
  • Make a call, and have the person on the other end hang up
  • The top red LED will flash for the length of the CPC signal, and one of the lower LEDs will light up indicating the duration of the CPC signal

It's Line Powered, and there's NO Button to Push!

If you're not getting the CPC signal from the phone company, you can usually ask them to supply it on the phone line. If you are getting it, then you have to find out why your phone equipment isn't detecting it, or why the system isn't passing the signal through to the single line station port with voice mail, a dictation machine, etc.

More information about CPC is in our CPC Tech Bulletin. Be sure to take a look at it before going to battle with the Phone Company!

If you can't get a CPC signal, see our CPC Generator and DTMF Flash Generator

NOTE: Most phone lines give a very short CPC (open loop) signal either as soon as you pick up the line, or as soon as you've finished dialing. You'll see this open loop on the CPC Tester. If the phone system is programmed for a very short open loop (like 20ms), you may not be able to make any phone calls because the phone system thinks it's getting a CPC signal right at the start of the call. The CPC Tester could help diagnose that type of problem, where the fix would be to simply change the Open Loop Timer in the phone system to 500ms.

DTMF FLASH GENERATOR

DTMF Flash Generator   DTMF Flash Generator

This amazing line powered device will flash (or hang-up) the line for up to a second in response to a pre-programmed code. It's always listening on the line.

A great device for phones without a flash key or no buttons left to program as a flash key. Put it on an Automated Attendant and allow it to do a Centrex flash right on the CO line, to transfer calls off premise. Put it on a cordless phone with no flash key. It will always flash the line for the pre-programmed time when it hears the pre-programmed trigger code. No guessing about how long to hold down the hook-switch! Dial the code from a phone on either end of the call.

The DTMF Flash Generator works well in response to DTMF A, B, C and D tones (fourth column tones).

The line powered DTMF Flash Generator is easily installed in-series with an analog CO line or station port using a modular jack. Programming is password protected, for remote or on-site programming via a DTMF phone.

Using the DTMF Flash Generator to provide a CPC:

Many phone systems allow in-band signalling to indicate to the device connected to an analog station port that the trunk has received a CPC signal from the phone company, and the outside party has hung-up. In-band signalling can be a DTMF digit (including A, B, C and D fourth column tones), dial tone, busy signal or reorder tone. These tones are usually used to signal a voice mail system that the outside party has hung-up.

It's usually necessary to program the phone system's analog station port as a voice mail port in order to use in-band signalling (this is how integration was done in the past). If the system supports sending a DTMF digit when it receives a CPC signal on a trunk, this is the most dependable way of proving an open-loop disconnect to the device on the analog station port. Any other methods have to recognize a tone or silence, which can lead to cut-offs when you don't want them.

Keep in mind that even if the phone system does support in-band signalling when it receives a CPC on a trunk, it may not send the DTMF digit when on a station to station call. That means that a voicemail will hang-up on trunk calls, but not on messages left from a station

In any event, you'll have to do some programming and testing, listening to see if there's a DTMF digit as a CPC on both trunk-to-station and station-to-station calls.

UNIVERSAL CPC GENERATOR™
















                    MAKE A STATION PORT HANG UP... Line Powered!

Many Phone Systems don't pass an open loop (0 volts) CPC Signal (Calling Party Control) from the CO Line to the station port.

For the few phone system that can't send a DTMF digit to tell the device to hang-up, the Universal CPC Generator™ is the answer.

Those systems usually send dial tone or a busy signal to the station port after the CO line disconnects, which keeps the Voice Mail or other device from hanging up.

The end result is Voice Mail messages that have a lot of junk at the end of them, or ports that stay tied up for a long time (or until manually reset). This makes it necessary to have more ports and bigger hard drives than are really needed, to make up for the lack of a CPC Signal.

The Universal CPC Generator™ goes in-front of a voice mail system, automated attendant, dictation system, OPX ports or any automated telephone device that answers the phone. It listens for the tones or silence you program, and if it hears a match for the duration of what you program, it opens the line for about 800ms to tell phone equipment that's looking for an open loop CPC to hang-up.

The new Universal CPC Generator™ will listen for one or more tones (Precise tones in the US are made up of two or four tones sent simultaneously), or silence.

Because the new Universal CPC Generator™ listens for one or more of eight of the tones that commonly makeup Precise tones in the US, it isn't likely to false with music or voice.

The Universal CPC Generator™ can also listen for silence for a duration, and then open the loop for 800ms.

Whether silence or tones will work in your application is something you'll have to think about. For example, if your automated attendant never stops talking, there will never be silence.

Click here to see the Manual in PDF format.

You may be able to use the Universal CPC Generator™ to solve a paging problem, where a busy signal or dial tone from a station port goes over the speakers. In a paging application you may be able to trigger the CPC in as little as 250 ms of a particular tone. You can also trigger it on a couple of seconds of silence. The only way to know for sure is to give it a try, playing with the timers in the Universal CPC Generator™.

The best solution for phone systems that don't have an external page port, and where a spare CO trunk isn't available, is to use the speaker leads in an electronic station set. Find an old phone, put it in the phone room, cut the speaker out and connect the speaker leads from the phone to the input of the page amp (program that phone for the page zone you want). You may need our Audio Transformer with Volume Control, to isolate the phone system from the page amp (to prevent hum and noise).

Wizard's Toolbox™ Relays

Designed by Gary Christiansen of Creative Aspect Electronics (CAI, Inc.) in the 1970s the original circuits are now discontinued. We've redesigned the line powered Ring Relay and Loop Sensing Relay, and you can get them here.

These relays can be used singly or together to do just about anything your customer asks you to do with a phone system!

The relay contacts on Wizard's Toolbox™ Relays will operate low voltage/low current devices. To operate a 110V AC lamp or start a car, you'll need to use a Slave Relay (below) that can handle the appropriate current.

You do need to know how electricity works to use these relays. We don't offer any support on how to use them.

If you can hook up a light bulb, battery and switch, you'll probably be able to use these just fine.


MODULAR SERIES LOOP SENSING (IN-USE) RELAY

 

 

2 Form C Contacts

 

 

This relay MUST be connected in-series with the device that goes off-hook on the line (senses current). You can make just about anything happen when a phone goes off-hook with this relay!

The line powered Modular Series In-Use Relay has two mod jacks on one side of the box. These two jacks are for the phone line and the telephone or CPE device. It doesn’t matter which jack you use for which, but the electricity must pass through this device before getting to the phone for the relay to operate when the phone is off-hook.

The DPDT relay contacts are brought out on a 6 Pin Modular Jack on the opposite side of the box (pinout diagram below) through a short solid wire 6 conductor cord (included) that can be punched down to a block or spliced to other wires (use UY connectors / B-Wire Connectors – not included).

The relay contacts will go on and off depending on whether the phone is off-hook or on-hook. The relay operates when current is flowing between the jacks when the phone or phone equipment is off-hook.

Modular In-Use Relay Specs:

  • Connects INLINE to the phone line through the 2 jacks (use either jack for in/out)

  • Includes an LED to indicate Off-Hook

  • Ignores ringing and pulse dialing

  • 2 form C contacts (DPDT) on a 6P6C modular jack (RJ-12)

  • Relay contacts are for low voltage / low current devices. Use it to operate a bigger slave relay for higher current or higher voltage applications.

MODULAR RING RELAY

 

 

2 Form C Contacts

 

 

 

This relay get bridged across (in parallel with) an analog POTS line or station port. You can make just about anything happen when the line rings with this relay!

The line powered Modular Ring Relay has two mod jacks on one side of the box. These two jacks are for the phone line. If you need it going out to a phone or CPE device use the other jack. The two jacks are bridged together. It doesn’t matter which one you use.

The DPDT relay contacts are brought out on a 6 Pin Modular Jack on the opposite side of the box (pinout diagram below) through a short solid wire 6 conductor cord (included) that can be punched down to a block or spliced to other wires (use UY connectors / B-Wire Connectors – not included).

The relay contacts will go on and off following the ring cadence of the line it’s connected to.

Ring Relay Specs:

  • Connects bridged ACROSS the line (connect either jack)

  • Includes an LED to indicate Ringing

  • Follows cadence of ring (but no AC flutter during ringing)

  • Ignores Ring-Tap from pulse dialing or phones on the same line being hung-up

  • 2 form C contacts (DPDT) on a 6P6C modular jack (RJ-12)

  • 0.5 REN ring load • Detects ringing from 40-150VAC, 20-30 Hz

Use a serial device on your PC or laptop that doesn't have a serial port, only a USB port. Has a DB9 Male Connector on a 2 foot cord.

There is a 90% chance this will work with a particular serial RS-232 device, not 100%. There's no way to know if it will work or not until you try it.

If your serial device doesn't work with this device right away, you may need to use our RS-232 Tech Bulletin to determine if any control pins need to be held high or low.

It supports Windows 98SE, ME, 2000, XP, Vista (32/64 bit), and Windows 7 (32/64 bit), as well as MAC OS X 10.1-10.5. Comes with a driver CD. It's made to be used on a USB 1.1 compliant port, which should include all USB 2.0 ports.

It should work well for programming most phone systems through a serial port.

Note that a USB device driver loads when the computer starts up. That's fine if you're sitting in-front of the computer, but there is a small chance that the drivers won't load properly on a particular reboot, requiring another reboot. That could be a problem if you're running this on an unattended PC like a kiosk. Real serial port drivers are more dependable (available on a PCI card (Windows only?) which is pretty cheap).

24V POWER SUPPLIES

Provides 24VDC for:

  • 24V Lights
  • 24V Buzzers
  • 24V Horns
  • 24V Ringers
  • Power for Self Amplified Speakers
  • Power for Relays

You need to know how much power (in milliamps (ma) or amps) each device you are powering takes. Add up the current draw of all of the devices, and get a power supply big enough to handle it - plus enough for future growth if that's a concern. 1000ma = 1 Amp.

NOTE: Be careful not to short the output of Power Cubes, since it usually blows the internal fuse (which isn't replaceable).

GENERAL TIP: If you end up with hum on an amplifier, tuner, or any other audio device, try reversing the AC plug. Also, try removing the grounds and/or reversing the polarity into each device. Ground loops are easily created when playing with different audio devices hung on a phone system, which usually causes hum.

RESISTORS FOR PHONE MEN

These resistors are rated to take the kind of current you'll see on a phone line. Regular 1/4 and 1/2 watt resistors may burn up.

They must be used in pairs, one on the tip and one on the ring, when wired in-series (keeps the line balanced).

Generally speaking, the loop current will drop by about 1ma, and the level of the line will go down by around 1db for every 100 ohms you put in-series with the tip and ring.

Keep some in your case!

CAPACITORS FOR PHONE MEN

These capacitors are rated to take the ring voltage on a phone line (90-100VAC). More common 50V capacitors may burn up.

Capacitors are used to block DC voltage. The most common use for capacitors in Telephony is in the ringing circuit, where they are always in-series with the ringer or bell.

Without a capacitor in series with a bell, when the phone rang the line would be tripped (or would stay off hook all of the time). The capacitor allows the AC ring voltage to pass through to the bell, while blocking the DC voltage which would take the line off-hook.

Another common usage for capacitors is getting audio off of a line with talk battery. If you put a line with talk battery into an amplifier or recorder, the DC voltage will probably look like foreign voltage to the device - and it won't sound too hot. Putting a .47 or 1mf cap in-series with one side of the line going to the amp will block the DC and just pass the audio (which is AC).

Keep in mind that if the line rings, it may blow up the amp or recorder! Ring voltage is AC, just like audio.

You do not have to put capacitors in series with both sides of the line feeding the amp (or whatever), since there is no DC path to become imbalanced (the cap blocks the DC). You wouldn't want to run an audio pair a long distance after the capacitor.

Keep some of these in your case!

            An Unbelievably Good Meter for a Phone Man, at a Very Reasonable Price!


NOTE: The Meter color is now Red instead of Yellow due to a Copyright dispute on the color Yellow used on a Meter. Other than the color, it's the exact same meter.


We bought and tested lots of meters to find one that was accurate for the phone man who has to measure:

  • On and Off Hook DC Voltage
  • DC Loop Current
  • Induced AC Voltage on a Phone Line
  • AC Ring Voltage

It's amazing how many meters, even expensive ones, won't measure AC on a phone line. You know you can't use a meter for telephone work if the display just hunts from 50 to 100 to 10 to 200 to 30, etc., constantly. Most Flukes work OK.

Network Meter™ DVOM Features:

  • AC and DC Volts
  • AC and DC Current (DC mA for Loop Current)
  • Ohms
  • Continuity with Beeper
  • Hold Button to Freeze the Display
  • Large Numbers on the LCD Display
  • Bright White Backlight for the Display (Switchable On/Off)
  • CAT5 4 Pair Cable Tester with Remote (Shows Continuity and Split Pairs)
  • Flip Out Desk Stand, with Helpful Connection Tips under the Stand
  • Overvoltage Protection prevents Meter Damage
  • Comes with Regular 9V Heavy Duty Battery - Lasts an Incredibly long time!
  • NOTE: There is an RJ-11 Test on the Selector Switch that's not Implemented

The Network Meter™ is really easy to use!

Phone line and phone system problems are getting harder, and a meter is as important as ever for a phone man who needs to get problems fixed as quickly and efficiently as possible... before you replace the KSU!

The Network Meter™ is at least as good at reading AC ring voltage as the $800 to $1,000 Triplett Model 5 or Sidekick T&N Meters, and it's accurate on all of the other ranges too - including DC ma (for loop current).

I put 50VDC from a phone line into the Cable Tester and Remote RJ-45 jacks, as well as the meter's ohms range, and the meter still worked (no smoke!). Not all meters or cable testers can survive an accidental connection to a phone line - which is a real possibility when we're out in the field. With PoE (Power over Ethernet), a lot of CAT5 jacks in offices are going to have 48VDC on one of the pairs that can instantly destroy a cable tester without overvoltage protection.

See the Ring Voltage Tech Bulletin for more information on ringing problems, and reading AC voltages on phone lines.

NETWORK (Ethernet) TONER & PROBE with LINK FLASHER

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Toner & Probe with Case

Made for Tracing Ethernet Cables

 

 




Plug the Toner into a workstation port, turn on the Link Flashing feature,
choose one of the 3 flash patterns, and Identify the port on your Ethernet Switch.

Finding Unmarked CAT5 and CAT6 Ethernet Cables is a fact of life!

Regular Tone and Probe Kits were designed to identify phone cables. Toning an active LAN circuit can disrupt network traffic, and it's difficult to track due to cable twist and tone bleed.

The Network Toner & Probe is different.

The Toner incorporates three Link Light activation speeds to easily identify the port that the cable is attached to on a hub or switch by simply looking for the blinking lights. Why three? Because different makes and models of Ethernet switches don't react the same to the Link Activation signals. Three speeds ensures the widest compatibility available.

Features:

  • Activates Link Llight to Identify a Connected Hub or Switch Port
  • Transmits 4 Different Loud Audible Tones
  • Probe has Speaker with Volume Control
  • Toner / Probe Works with Other Brands of Toners & Probes
  • Tone & Probe Works Great for Telephone Cables
  • RJ-45 Male or Female Connection (plug a Patch Cord right into it)
  • Auto Power Down on the Toner Extends Battery Life
  • Toner has a Built-in Low Battery Indicator
  • Detachable Alligator Clips on Toner
  • Detects Shorts or Opens
  • Standard 9V Batteries Included

DIGITAL IMPEDANCE BRIDGE - PAGING SYSTEM TESTER

Digital Impedance Bridge

 

 

The Impedance Bridge

The SECRET of Paging System
Repair & Installation


The Impedance Bridge tells you how many watts the speakers draw, on both 25 and 70V speaker lines. Simply turn it on, connect it to the speakers line (not to the amplifier!), and read the watts the speakers draw right off the LCD display.

It also puts a tone over the speakers (without the amplifier connected), which makes finding a bad speaker quicker.

The Impedance Bridge lets you adjust the speaker and horn taps to match what the amplifier can put out. That's useful in a new installation where the speaker could actually use more watts than it says, but critical when you're repairing a system that's blowing the fuse or circuit breaker in the amplifier (or blowing up the amplifier itself!).

Amplifiers often sound distorted for a while when they're overloaded, before they blow up.

You're Wasting Your Time Trying to Fix Paging Systems Without One of These!

Easy to Use:

1.  Disconnect the Speakers from the Amplifier

2.  Read the speaker line to see how many watts the speakers use (don't connect it to the amplifier!)

3.  If the speakers use 120 watts, and you've got a 100 watt Amplifier, you've got a problem!

    4a.  Find the 8 Ohm Speaker someone installed (an 8 Ohm speaker without a matching transformer
           sucks up all the juice that's supposed to go to the other speakers)

    4b.  Find the bad speaker or matching transformer

    4c.  Turn some taps on the speakers down to get well below the 100 watts

    4d.  Put in a new, bigger or second Amplifier (split the speaker runs between two amps)

Now with Over-Voltage Protection...  Won't Blow Up if you put it on a live speaker line!

If you have an older model without the over-voltage protection it can be upgraded, or repaired and upgraded if you've already blown it up (call us at 630-980-7710).

Getting Started in Electronics

By Forrest Mims, III

I've used this Softcover 128 page book for many years. It's the handiest electronics reference book I've ever had!

I have a terrible memory for names, numbers and formulas!  It really doesn't matter, as long as I know where to find the information I need to get a job done. This is the book I count on to give me resistor color codes, capacitor value abbreviations, the formulas for putting resistors and capacitors in-series and parallel, the markings for polarity on a diode, and a whole lot more.

We've got a copy of this book right next to the benches in our shop. It's not only fast to look stuff up, but it's easy to understand. Forrest Mims did a great job of writing this book so that just about anybody can understand electronics. It's perfect for what we use electronics for in the telephone business.

This book isn't full of rocket science. Just practical information about basic electronics.

Look up only what you need, when you need it:

Begin With the Basics - Learn about static electricity and how to make magnets and solenoids. Find out about direct current and alternating current. Then learn about electrical circuits that use batteries and lamps.

Basic Electronic Components - Find out how switches, relays, meters, resistors, capacitors and transformers are used.

Diodes and Transistors - These components (including LEDs) are they key ingredients of modern electronic circuits. Find out what they do, and how they work.

Integrated Circuits - How dozens to thousands of electronic components can be formed on tiny chips of silicon.

Digital Integrated Circuits - Learn the basics about digital logic gates using switches and transformers.

Linear Integrated Circuits - Linear circuits respond to the presence or absences of voltage, giving them a wide range of applications.

Circuit Assembly Tips - Learn how to use electronic components to make temporary circuits and permanent circuits using wire and solder.

100 Electronic Circuits - Build any or even all of the 100 tested and working circuits included in the book. The categories of circuits include basic, photonic, digital, and linear.

Can you be a better technician if you know a little about electronics?  YES!   Customers need odd problems solved. Sometimes as simple as adding loud bells, ringing over paging, or even an amplified speaker to an electronic phone for loud ringing. Since analog telephones are just basic electricity, there's a pretty good chance you can help your customers tailor their phone system to their particular needs if you know a little about electronics.
