Algo 2506 - Will it work with an analog ring alarm

I am looking to have a bell ring in a warehouse when a call comes into a Polycom VVX phone registered to Skype for Business on-prem.  The Also 2506 seems like a viable solution.  However, their data sheets/website seems to indicate that you must use one of their SIP alerters with the 2506.  Has anybody tried using the 2506 with a standard analog bell?  Does anybody know what the voltage/output of the 2506 is?

 

Thanks,

Chad

Re: Algo 2506 - Will it work with an analog ring alarm

One of the electronics wizards in our shop did something similar. I asked him about it:

I don’t recall the exact voltage or current, just that it is quite low and dependent on the ring volume settings of the phone (headset specifically). In our circumstances it was enough to activate a 6V relay circuit with an external power supply that is used to drive an indicator light. That could be adapted to activate an audio alert or bell, but the ring detector itself could not pull it off.
