Advanced Loop and/or Ring Detector

Model: LDB-3

  • Detects ring voltage and off hook loop current
  • On/off switches for ring detection and offhook/loop detection
  • Screw terminal connections
  • Selectable ring cadence mode (relay can remain on between rings)
  • Wall mountable with foam tape (included) or screws (not included)
  • Switched 12V DC output (follows relay activation for powering strobe lights, cameras, etc.)
  • One set of (NO) normally open or (NC) normally closed relay contacts provided
  • Ideal for use with two-button emergency phones such as Viking’s E-1600-20A, disable input so phone will not activate relay on “Info” calls, see DOD 215 for more information on the E-1600-20A

Product Manual

Application Note

Product Details

The LDB-3 Advanced Loop Detector monitors an analog phone line for ringing and/or an off hook condition. A built-in relay can be activated when either of these conditions are detected. This is ideal for monitoring line status or for providing a visual indication of such.

The LDB-3’s disable input is ideal for two-button emergency phones, such as Viking’s E-1600-20A, allowing “Info” button calls to be placed without activating the relay (turning on the emergency strobe light, camera, etc.)

Three DIP switches are provided for turning ring detection on or off, off-hook/loop detection on or off and for selecting a ring cadence mode which allows the relay to follow ringing or to remain activated during the off time of standard ring cadence.

The LDB-3 comes complete with a 12 VDC power adapter, and can also provide switched 12VDC 0.35 Amp output to power external lights, etc. during ringing and/or off-hook conditions.

Applications

  • Control a strobe or beacon light for ring indication
  • Provide relay closures on ring and off-hook
  • Trigger a security camera
  • Trigger a tape recorder
  • Phone “In Use” indicator
