Paging interface for two-line phones?
« on: May 29, 2018, 09:42:39 PM »
I have an application at an auto repair shop where they want a paging horn or two in their service bays.  They only have two 2-line phones.  I seem to recall that Viking and Mike Sandman had some kind of gadget that would permit the dialing of some strange digit combination that would kill the CO line and connect the phone to the PA system.  Does anyone know of any devices that will do this?  Viking and Sandman don't seem to have anything like this listed on their sites anymore.

I did not check it over so this may not be what you are looking for but check this out.

Looks like that might do it, Ed!

Good catch, NTLayoff. Hard to go wrong with Viking...

I used that viking unit in a similar situation  once and it worked just fine.

Agreed, and again, nice find, Jim.

Glad to hear Skip found it a usable system too.  I can see that being useful in the near future.

Thanks for the great suggestion.  I don't know how I missed it, but it's not listed on Viking's official site.  It's still carried by the Viking Store (just someone selling Viking hardware) and several wholesalers.  I got it ordered today and hope to have it installed early next week.
