hicom 100e external bell

hicom 100e external bell

I have been dropped in at the deep end with a Siemens HiCom 100E system...

I need to install an external bell / loud ringer (whatever they are called) into a clients warehouse, but I don't have a clue where to start with this system!

Does anyone know where I can obtain an installation guide, or wiring diagram for this system?
Or if you know how to do what I want to do, even better!

I've scoured google but so far only come up with the programming guide.


RE: hicom 100e external bell

Set up an Analog extension on the number you want to ring, and then connect the loud bell in parallel with the phone using a Y-Adapter, or hard wire it in parallel.

Radio Shack (used to) sells a big bell ringer for around $50, and they have the phone flasher that has a strobe and a loud piezo ringer on it as well.

You can get similar devices from cooperwheelock.com

Most of them prefer an analog line to work from, but you can still find other ones that have a noise pickup that goes over the ringer on any kind of phone and is used as a remote trigger, but those are getting harder to find.
