I can't remember and the manuel is long gone, can you run the line ringing thru the pagePac and out to the speakers?

The usual method is to use a tone generator which is triggered by the ring. The audio from it would be mixed into the paging system.

There are some amps that have the night bell or tone generator built in and that's what you are probably thinking of. I don't think the Page Pac line offered this. What Page Pac device are you talking about?

The D-100 Amplicenter offered the ability to do a "night bell" using a S/L station or contact closure. The other Page-Pacs required you to add a Page Pal to get that feature (also allowed you to use a Loop Start or Ground Start trunk, or a T/R station for paging input, in addition to a dedicated 600 ohm page port)

Found a cheap solution. I took a old 6 button phone clipped the speaker leads, beaned on a RCA cable and plugged it into the music in port on the page pack, change the extension ringing to ring the old 6 button and voila..loud ringing. Total cost, maybe $10. Happy customer!

That's not something I would be proud of and as a professional you shouldn't be either. If a standard off the shelf solution is too rich for a customer's blood I'm not about to do a hack job just because they are too cheap. That's the kind of customer I wouldn't be doing business with anyway.

"That's the kind of customer I wouldn't be doing business with anyway." Man, I wish all my customers had money to burn, but in rural America most of the businesses operate on a shoestring, anytime you can save the customer money it translates into referals. Besides it looks nice, the phone is wall mounted next to the equipment, cable neatly placed.

Found a cheap solution? Way too funny.

This will come back to hunt you in time.

You cold have bought a cheap Viking night bell over paging adapter.

I bet your application sounds like a machine gun over paging. Valcom offered it. You need to send ringing to a dry contact from the KSU or a button relay to perform the audible feature.

Although, there are a bunch of ways to create noise
with paging.

How do you know they operate on a shoestring or are just cheap and laughing at you all the way to the bank? Answer is you don't.

I don't think I have ever had a customer that didn't cry about money but the funny thing is when they want something bad enough they always seem to find the cash.

Well, no, it will sound like whatever comes out the the speaker in the phone that he clipped onto.

It's still a poor way to make it happen. What's even better is when someone uses that phone, everything that used to come out of the speakerphone now comes out over the paging horns.
