220.127.116.11 Audio Output (Paging and Night Bell) Cabling
Various ShoreGear voice switches have a 3.5 mm mini-stereo audio output connector for
overhead paging and night bell on a per site basis. The audio output port provides low-level
line audio with a sufficient input level for a typical amplifier. The paging port output is
about one volt peak to peak, similar to the line output of a CD player, and can drive inputs
that are 600 ohms or higher. Refer to Appendix G, starting on page 303, to determine the
voice switches that provide the 3.5 mm mini-stereo input connector.
The audio output is mono signal. If you use a stereo jack, the signal is available on one
channel, but the other channel will be silent.
This is a single-zone paging system. If more zones are required, see the application note on
ShoreTel’s online knowledge base.
18.104.22.168 Maintenance Cabling
ShoreGear voice switches support a maintenance port for connection terminal using a
standard DB-9 female connector. This maintenance port is typically used only when
assigning networking parameters if DHCP or BOOTP is not being used.
