PH508 Alarm
« on: June 21, 2007, 09:01:44 PM »

I have a DS7000 Console and 3 PH508 Horns. When I plug the horn into the same outlet as the Console the horn works fine.
If I plug the horn into another outlet in the same room or different room the horns don't work. What can I do to resolve this.

Sounds like the console and horns are on different phases.  Turn on one or two 240V resistive loads such as an oven or burner. If that solves the problem you are on two different phases if not it is still possible.   Start by putting them on the same circuit, if that woks keep expanding if not be sure you have no plug strips, ups or other electronic devices plugged in.  Sony TVís are especially bad.  If you read through the postings you will probably find somebody has had a problem with just about every device in your home. There are many articles posted here telling how to bridge the two phases.

Good Luck
