Question about Lands Phones
I need to know where do you connect an External Paging Amplifier on a Nortel Key Telephone System NT5B05. There is only 3 lines coming into this Key Telephone System. But, the Key Telephone System 3 lines connect to a 66 Block. I desperate need help and a good explanation how to make the hook up to an External Paging Amplifier. The Telephone
System is programmed for paging using the Telephone Internal Speakers by picking up the receiver and press "Page 1 Button", then you can hear the paging through the telephone speakers. But, I need to hear a louder page by using connecting up a External Paging Amplifier to the proper port.
Your immediate help will be deeply appreciated. Thank you in advance.
Battlesmith sounds about right, but I don't think he answered your question. The 66 block pins carry voltage, around 37 and when the line rings 100. When you attach a meter you will be hunting Tip and Ring. I set my meter to VAC at 150v, as the phone line has rung on me while checking lines on a large 66 Block. Since you have three wires coming in I would think this is a common ground. The neg and pos terminal relationship or Tip and Ring are easy enough to distinguish. When you have the polarity right with your meter leads you should read around 37 volts when no one is on the line, a line open drops this voltage significantly. So if you have them reversed you will only get around 8 volts.
Question: does the terminal have red/green or blue whie/blue wires coming off it? or a +, - mark. Depending on the age of your existing wires you have re/gree and black/yellow in the Cat3 bundle, or in newer Cat5, you have blue/blue-white as the primary number and Orange/Orange-White as the secondary line.
Here's where you have to test and use your cell and a helper to answer your call and page. Run Blue in on the block to blue out to your terminal and so on. Reverse those if when you call the line and the helper pages you don't hear anything. This testing is only if you have no help from markings on the amp terminal. Digital PBX voltages are different but reasonably the same. Analog PBX systems (more common today for their simplicity) are what I described to you.

It has 3- RJ-11 jacks for co-line interface and one male 50-pin amphenol connection is used as the interface for the stations; the amphenols is also used for connection of external devices such as Music on Hold source, loud speaker paging and a relay contact for auxiliary ringers.So pls use this s0-pin amphenol for connecting the External Paging Amplifier So that it is louder too..Please feel free for any assitance..hope it helps you..thank you!!..
