ATA and strobe lights

Unanswered Question
Nov 7th, 2007

I know we can connect up a strobe light for a hard-of-hearing user that lights a light. On the back of the ATA-186 there ar 2-ports for analog phones that the light can plug into, if we plug 2 lights into the 2 ports will they both light up when a call comes in or would just one?


Thanks.

Hi John,


Hope things are going well for you :) The second Jack is generally used for a second phone Line/Extension. You could probably set them both up for the same number, but depending on the distance between the Strobe and the ATA you might alos be able to just use a "T" Line Splitter. The strobe probably has a REN (Ringer Equivilancy(sp?) Number) that will determine whether or not the one line can power two Strobes. Either way you win!


5 REN 200 feet (61 m)


4 REN 1000 feet (305 m)


3 REN 1700 feet (518 m)


2 REN 2500 feet (762 m)


1 REN 3200 feet (975 m)


From this good doc;

Hope this helps!

Thanks as usual Rob; that is what I was thinking that a splitter may have to be involved.
