The Hybrid Coupler is a two-way, passive telephone coupler. This means that it allows the operator to simultaneously send and receive audio over a single telephone line without external or internal power for operation.
Its primary application is sending and/or receiving audio over telephone lines.
- The unit connects directly to the telephone line and can be used with almost any analog telephone system.
When the switch on the front of the Hybrid Coupler is in the TAP position, the internal hybrid coil is connected to the telephone line through a coupling capacitor. This permits the unit to monitor the telephone line without seizing or loading it.
With the switch on the front of the Hybrid Coupler in the SEIZE position, the hybrid coil is directly connected to the telephone line, which terminates the line. This allows the operator to hang up the telephone set and maintain an open telephone line.
When in the OFF position, the internal hybrid coil is not connected to the telephone circuit.
- The Hybrid Coupler’s internal hybrid coil provides approximately 10dB of audio separation (null) between the incoming receive and outgoing send audio. The amount of separation can be adjusted slightly with the front-panel NULL trim pot.
The Hybrid Coupler’s telephone LINE and SET connectors are paralleled connections to an internal hybrid coil.
- The SEND and RECEIVE jacks are unbalanced audio feeds to and from the internal hybrid coil
