TELEPHONE PATCH & COMPUTER EQUIPMENT

 

REQUIRED WHEN CONNECTING THE  KH SOUND SYSTEM TO A CONFERENCE SERVER

 

 

What is a phone patch and how does it work? 

The phone patch is a device that makes it possible to easily connect the KH sound system to your telephone line which is then connected to the telephones of other individuals.

 

When do we need a phone patch box?

If you already have the ability to connect your sound system to the telephone line and connect one or two individuals to your KH meeting by using three way calling then you already have enough equipment to get started conferencing.

 

    

Kingdom Halls that have been around for many years likely have a Hanstech Phone Patch

         

             

The Hanstech phone patches have an internal transformer permitting them  to be connected directly to 70volt speaker terminals This illustrates a telephone hookup providing audio from KH to online participants and audio from the online participants which allows them to comment and be heard at the KH auditorium.

HANSTECH  Phone Patch

Models  TLV-1,   TLV-2,  TLV-4, TIF102,  TIF401, TCP 1-LRM  XCOM - XE005E

Commenting from home: If you have a Hanstech device the black RCA jack on back  (6 above) provides (mono) audio from the commenter at home to be fed back into your sound system, when the RECEIVE switch is pressed down.

 

The Hanstech Phone Patch for Kingdom Halls is no longer available since Brother Bill Hansen the inventor and builder has retired.

Matching Transformer Assembly

 

Some KH sound systems do NOT have an audio out jack or headphone jack to provide an audio signal to the phone patch device.

 

Therefore we provide a matching transformer that will provide an audio signal for the Telephone Audio Interface.  It attaches to the the 70 volt speaker terminals on the audio system.

 

Transformer connects directly to 25-50-70-100 volts speaker terminals. A 6' mono cable with 1/4" mono plugs connects to the transformer and the line in on the Telephone Audio Interface to provide a solid audio signal.

 

Includes transformer and audio cable.

IMPORTANT: We highly recommend and strongly suggest using a premium surge protector on the phone line and AC power to protect your Phone Patch from lightning surge damage.  Lightening surge is the most frequent cause of damage to Phone Patch boxes since they contain delicate electronic components and are connected directly to a Phone line coming from outside of your building as well as to the AC power circuit in your building.  Both lines are coming in to your equipment from wires strung high in the air outside. These wires are effected by lightening either directly or by induction raising the line voltage beyond the tolerance of the equipment.  A premium surge protector is highly recommended and is much cheaper than replacing the phone patch box!
