Olive Box Plans Courtesy of Exodus This is a relatively new box, and all it basically does is serve as a phone ringer. You have two choices for ringers, a piezoelectric transducer (ringer), or a standard 8 ohm speaker. The speaker has a more pleasant tone to it, but either will do fine. This circuit can also be used in conjunction with a rust box to control an external something or other when the phone rings. Just connect the 8 ohm speaker output to the inputs on the rust box, and control the pot to tune it to light the light (which can be replaced by a relay for external controlling) when the phone rings. ______________ | | ^ NC --|-- 5 4 --|-----/\/\/------->G | | / R2 G<----)|----|-- 6 3 --|-- NC | C3 | U1 | -------|-- 7 2 --|---------- --- -- - > TO RINGER | | ----|-- 8 1 --|-- | |______________| | | ---/\/\/----|(----- L1 | R1 C1 ------------------------------------------ L2 a.
