LPTEL, telephone ringer repeater

LPTEL is a phone ringtone repeater: it turns on a light bulb when the phone is ringing. It connects to the telephone line, so it is independent of the telephone device.

Telephone ringtone repeater, components

R1 – resistor 47 ohm 1/4 W
C1 – capacitor 2.7 uF 250 V polyester
C2 – capacitor 10 μF 25 V electrolytic
RS1 – bridge rectifier 100 V 1 A
DZ1 – zener diode 24 V 1 W
RL1 – low absorption relay (max 25 mA) 24 V, single contact 230 Vac 2A

I recommend using a 1A fuse in series with the 230 Vac power supply of the bulb.

LPTEL, description

Sometimes you don't hear your phone ringing, just because you're performing noisy work or listening to music. The circuit that I present to you, the telephone ringtone repeater, avoids this discomfort even to the deaf, not because it amplifies the sound of the telephone ringtone (it could also do so, it would be enough to insert a bell at the exit), but because it turns on a lamp with each ring. By placing this lamp, better if colored and powerful enough (60 Watts) in a visible position, this will immediately notify us if someone is calling us. As can be seen from the diagram, the circuit requires very few components that are easy to find.

OPERATION OF THE TELEPHONE RINGER REPEATER

The operation of the repeater circuit is very simple: when the SIP line is at rest, there will be a direct voltage that will not pass through C1. When the phone rings, at the ends of the line there will be an alternating voltage of about 70 Volts that will pass through C1, will be straightened by RS1, reduced by R1 and filtered by C2. This voltage will activate the relay, which can drive any type of electrical circuit. The relay used is of the low absorption type, about 25 milliamps (1000 ohms at 24 V, or 500 ohms at 12V), since the current supplied by sip is low.
