Topic # 16419 9-Oct-2007 16:16

I'm trying to track down some non VOIP phone baluns to use in my office.
The office is all wired with CAT5 and currently I've got 2 mod-tap baluns (pictured) to get just 1 phone line to another part of the office.
It has a RJ-45 cable coming off the left side, and a normal phone jack on the end - it has a tele-permit sticker on it so I guess its a balun and not just some adapter.
Any ideas, links, help would be grateful.
Does anyone know where I can source some more - I guess a Sparky Wholesaler or some Phone wholesaler?
Thanks

Mod Tap Phone Balun

Are you sure this forum is the best one when looking for non-VoIP hardware?

these are standard fare mod-taps, I used to get mine from Computer Dynamics in Christchurch.
You should try a telecommunications equip' wholesaler or something along those lines if Dick Smith or Jaycar don't have 'em.

Computer dynamics is best supplier, but they are a wholesaler so dont sell direct to end user

To be fair, when looking for a better forum to move it to, the best I could come up with was 'offtopic'. I will let it stay where it is now, as this forum is the most likely place to find people who can answer the question.

These are surprisingly hard to come by now for some reason.

Why not just cut off the BT plug and put a RJ45 on it. That's what we do..

These are actually quite handy for sending you ATA output through a cat5/6 wired home, so yes applicable to a VOIP forum. Another place you can get similar type adaptors is Ideal Electrical, or other electrical wholesalers etc.

You should be able to pick them up from most electrical wholesalers, who just ask cam786 to give a hand.

Sweet - went to Ideal Electrical - $6.75 for 2.

Thanks everyone for pointing me in the right direction.
