power to the fones

6 posts in this topic

how is it that a phone gets it energy to work? i know it comes through the phone lines then to the phone unless its a cordless then it has ac... and what is the voltage that travels though those lines to power such a phone.

Just a project im working on...

red is ring, green is tip.

And remember, when that phone rings thats a 90volt spike on the line if I remember correctly.

I know this cause one night i was chewing on a line in the middle of my room (that i hook my laptop to when i feel like going on the floor) when my friend calls. SHOCK!**@$^*$@^*#%*^#$% :wacko::blink::wacko:

I know, that was a stupid idea!!! but i was half asleep.
