How It Works
Call Collector can be used to troubleshoot DTMF and MF signaling problems in phone lines, interoffice trunks, 911 applications, and for verifying dialed numbers from telephone equipment. The battery-operated unit allows unattended call logging operation, capturing dialed numbers and storing them in memory as organized records with time stamps. An AC adapter is provided for extended operation via any standard 115 VAC wall outlet. Call records can be output to a PC or printer in real time, or queried later for downloading. There are two different LCD modes to choose from: 1) viewing the called numbers and associated time stamp, or, 2) viewing just the numbers themselves, displayed in a continuous string. A speaker enables monitoring of all audio activity on the telephone line, including dial tones, busy signals and even the caller's voice. Push-button controls on the faceplate allow programming of these feature sets:
- DTMF/MF Selection
- Display Modes
- Call Records Download and Clearing
- Speaker Volume
- Clock Date & Time Setting
Test leads, equipped with alligator clips and an RJ11 modular plug, allow easy connection of the units' modular test port to the telephone terminal points or bare wire tip and ring. An external modem can be connected to the RS-232 communications port for PC access from a remote site.
