RG-10A
Ring Booster
October 10, 2016
Boost Ringing Power to up to
Twelve Additional Phones
The RG-10A ring generator is designed to
increase the ringing power of an existing
telephone line, PABX extension, FXS port,
IP phone system analog port or any other
telecom device which provides ringing.
The RG-10A duplicates the incoming ring
frequency and cadence allowing it to be
compatible with custom ringing features.
The RG-10A is capable of ringing twelve
standard (1 REN) telephones and does not
affect normal operation of the telephone line
or features provided by the phone company,
such as caller ID and call waiting. Multiple
RG-10A’s may be used for even higher drive
output.

Programming
The RG-10A can be configured to add loop current to low loop current lines. This feature is not
compatible with systems that regulate the loop current.
IMPORTANT: Electronic components are sensitive to static electricity. Personnel and work area should
be grounded before handling.
Note: Be very careful when performing this procedure. Only use one hand to change position of
switches and only touch the LOOP CURRENT BOOST and POLARITY switches in the RG-10A. Other
components in the RG-10A can be very high voltage if the telephone line rings while performing this
procedure.
Activating the DC Talk Battery and Loop Current Boost
Step 1.
Remove the (2) screws on the bottom of the unit and then remove the top cover.
Step 2.
Connect the telephone line or analog PABX/KSU station to the LINE IN modular cord of the RG-10A.
Step 3.
Connect a single line telephone (or butt set) to the OUT TO PHONES jack on the RG-10A.
Step 4.
Connect power to the RG-10A.
Step 5.
Set the LOOP CURRENT BOOST switch to the ON position.
Step 6.
Go off hook on the single line telephone (or butt set). The LOOP LED will light and dial tone will be heard
in the phone.
Step 7.
Set the POLARITY switch to the position that gives you the brightest LOOP LED while off hook with the
phone.
Step 8.
Replace the top cover and screws of the RG-10A.
Step 6.
Reconnect the normal telephones to the OUT TO PHONES jack on the RG-10A

FCC REQUIREMENTS
This equipment complies with Part 68 of the FCC rules and the requirements adopted by the
ACTA. On the side of this equipment is a label that contains, among other information, a
product identifier in the format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. If requested, this number must be
provided to the telephone company.
The REN is used to determine the number of devices that may be connected to a telephone
line. Excessive REN's on a telephone line may result in the devices not ringing in response
to an incoming call. In most but not all areas, the sum of the REN's should not exceed five
(5.0) To be certain of the number of devices that may be connected to a line, as determined
by the total REN's, contact the local telephone company. For products approved after July
23, 2001, the REN for this product is part of the product identifier that has the format
US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. The digits represented by ## are the REN without a decimal point
(e.g., 03 is a REN of 0.3). For earlier products, the REN is separately shown on the label.
The plug used to connect this equipment to the premises wiring and telephone network must
comply with the applicable FCC Part 68 rules and requirements adopted by the ACTA. If your
home has specially wired alarm equipment connected to the telephone line, ensure the
installation of this RG-10A does not disable your alarm equipment. If you have questions
about what will disable alarm equipment, consult your telephone company or a qualified
installer.
If the RG-10A causes harm to the telephone network, the telephone company will notify you
in advance that temporary discontinuance of service may be required. But if advance notice
isn't practical, the telephone company will notify the customer as soon as possible. Also, you
will be advised of your right to file a complaint with the FCC if you believe it is necessary.
The telephone company may make changes in its facilities, equipment, operations, or
procedures that could affect the operation of the equipment. If this happens, the telephone
company will provide advance notice in order for you to make the necessary modifications
to maintain uninterrupted service.
If trouble is experienced with the RG-10A, for repair or warranty information, please
contact:
Viking Electronics, Inc., 1531 Industrial Street, Hudson, WI 54016 (715) 386-8666
If the equipment is causing harm to the telephone network, the telephone company
may request that you disconnect the equipment until the problem is resolved.
Connection to Party Line Service is subject to State Tariffs. Contact the state public
utility commission, public service commission or corporation commission for information.
WHEN PROGRAMMING EMERGENCY NUMBERS AND (OR) MAKING TEST
CALLS TO EMERGENCY NUMBERS:
Remain on the line and briefly explain to the dispatcher the reason for the call. Perform
such activities in the off-peak hours, such as early morning or late evenings.
It is recommended that the customer install an AC surge arrester in the AC outlet to
which this device is connected. This is to avoid damaging the equipment caused by
local lightning strikes and other electrical surges.
PART 15 LIMITATIONS

a commercial environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio
frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction
manual, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this
equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference in which case
