Unanswered Question
Mar 24th, 2008

Hi Guys,

I have a problem where by i have an analouge phone hanging off a VG248 - all working fine, except this phone is a nurse call phone and requires a certain voltage running down the line. Can anyway give me the line specifications that the VG248 produces?


I have this problem too.
