Line Status Strobe
Light Kit with EWP

September 28, 2012
Provide Strobe Light
Indication of Line Status
Ideal for Use with Two-Button Emergency Phones!
The BLK-3-EWP provides high visibility indication of analog line status
through a high powered one million candle power strobe light. The BLK3-EWP is the ideal solution for the hearing impaired and can be used
equally well in loud warehouses or factories, where ringing phones can not
be heard. Alternatively, the BLK-3-EWP can be used to add emergency
notification to pre-existing emergency phones by turning on the strobe
light when the emergency phone is in use.
The included LDB-3 control module has a disable input which is ideal for two-button emergency phones, such as
Viking’s E-1600-20A, allowing “Info” button calls to be placed without activating the relay (turning on the emergency
strobe light, camera, etc.) Three DIP switches are provided for turning ring detection on or off, off-hook/loop detection on or off and for selecting a ring cadence mode which allows the relay to follow ringing or to remain activated
during the off time of standard ring cadence.
The control module can be installed on any standard telephone line or analog PABX/KSU station. The 1 million candle power strobe can be interfaced to flash on ringing, off-hook or a combination of ringing and off-hook (line in-use).
The LDB-3 ring/loop detect control module is also available separately, see DOD# 409 for more information.
The BLK-3-EWP is equipped with Enhanced Weather Protection (EWP) for outdoor installations where the unit is
exposed to precipitation or condensation. EWP products feature foam rubber gaskets and boots, sealed connections, gel-filled butt connectors, as well as urethane or thermal plastic potted circuit boards with internally sealed,
field-adjustable trim pots and DIP switches for easy on-site programming. For more information, see DOD# 859.
The kit includes: (1) LDB-3 control module, (1) blue strobe light, (1) 12V DC power adapter, (13) gel-filled butt connectors and (1) single gang weatherproof mounting box with gaskets and hardware.

Connect the incoming line to the red and green wires with the yellow stripe as shown in the diagram. No phone/terminal device
is required. The LDB-3 control module can monitor for ringing any place along the ringing line.
2. Loop/Off-hook Indication Only
The LDB-3 control module must be placed between the phone line and the phone/terminal device to be monitored. Connect the
incoming line to the red and green wires with the yellow stripe and connect the phone/terminal device to the brown and gray
wires as shown.
3. Both Ring and Loop/Off-hook Indication
If the application requires ring and loop/off-hook indication, the LDB-3 control module must be placed between the phone line
and the phone/terminal device to be monitored. Connect the incoming line to the red and green wires with the yellow stripe, connect the phone/terminal device to the brown and gray wires.
C. Ring Cadence Mode
DIP switch 2 is used for switching between different ring detection modes. In the OFF position, the relay and switched 12VDC output will activate only while ring voltage is present and will turn off between rings. In the ON position, the relay and switched 12VDC
output will remain on for up to 5.75 seconds after the ringing has stopped. This allows the relay and 12VDC (flashing strobe light)
to remain on between rings of a standard ring cadence. Note: To use the Ring Cadence Mode, ring detection MUST be enabled
(DIP switch 1 - ON).
D. Relay Contacts
Normally open and normally closed relay contacts are available on the orange, purple and yellow wires. The contacts are rated at .5A @
125VAC/1A @ 30VDC. If contacts are driving an inductive load, place a suppression device at the load to snub high voltage spikes.
E. Switched 12V DC Output
The switched 12V DC output is a low current, 12-15VDC output that is turned on only while the ring/loop detect relay is activated.
This switched power output is ideal for lighting the included strobe light or providing 12-15V DC power to any device that draws less
than 350mAmps. The positive side is available on the red wire, and the negative side is on the black wire. Once all the line and
load connections have been made, plug in the 115 V AC wall adapter, and replace the cover.

Rear View of E-1600-20A
By connecting the Disable/Info Switch input of the LDB-3 control module to
the “Info” switch of Viking’s E-1600-20A, E-1600-20A-EWP, E-1600-52A or
E-1600-52A-EWP Emergency Phone, any outbound call initiated from the
“Info” button will not activate the strobe light. This way, only the
“Help/Emergency” outbound calls will activate the relay. Cut one of the “Info”
switch wires in half and connect each end to the blue wires on the LDB-3 control module as shown in the diagram at the right. Note: This Disable input is
NOT polarity sensitive. The “Disable” input can be connected to a switch for
remotely disabling/turning off the device (strobe light, camera, etc.) controlled
by the LDB-3. For more information, see DOD# 866.

Operation
A. Ring Indication (DIP Switch 1 ON)
When the LDB-3 control module detects an incoming ring signal, it activates a set of normally open or normally closed contacts and
turns on the 12VDC output for activating the provided strobe light. With the Ring Cadence mode off (DIP switch 2 OFF), the relay
will activate and the strobe light will flash only during ringing. With the Ring Cadence mode ON (DIP switch 2 ON), the relay will
remain activated and the strobe light will remain flashing between rings.
B. Off-Hook Indication (DIP Switch 3 ON)
When the LDB-3 control module detects an off-hook condition (loop current) on the brown and gray wires, it activates a set of normally open or normally closed contacts and turns on the 12VDC output for activating the provided strobe light. The relay contacts
will remain activated and the blue strobe light will flash during the off-hook condition and will stop flashing approximately 3 seconds
after the phone/terminal device on the brown and gray wires is back on-hook.
Other Applications
A. Mounting the BLK-3-EWP with the E-1600-20A
The BLK-3-EWP can be used in conjunction with the E-1600-20A Two-Button Emergency Phone as
shown to the far right, however, special installation and mounting is required. Please follow the steps
below when using the BLK-3-EWP in conjunction with a surface-mounted E-1600-20A. A VE-5x5 surface-mount box is required, see DOD# 424.
Step 1. Drill or use a knockout punch to provide a .875” diameter hole in the top of the VE-5x5.
