Wall mounted adsl filters

    Does anybody know where I can buy a wall-mounted extension (slave) box with
    adsl filter built in - i.e. with both an adsl and a phone socket? I can
    find BT master sockets that do this, and plug-in filters but not extension
    (slave) sockets.

    TIA

    I can see only:
    - faceplates for MASTER sockets with adsl and phone outlets
    - faceplates for slave sockets with ONLY adsl (but no phone) outlets
    Can you point me to faceplates for SLAVE sockets with BOTH adsl and phone
    outlets

    All combinations but the one that I need {:-(
    - faceplates for MASTER sockets with both adsl and phone outlets
    - faceplates for slave sockets with ONLY adsl (but no phone) outlets
    - dual adsl/phone secondary box does not contain a filter.

    What I am looking for is a secondary (slave) faceplate or box containing a
    filter/splitter with both adsl and phone outlets.

    Buy a master and cut out the capacitor and the resistor ,you now have a
    slave or secondary as they are more usually known.

    There is nothing stopping you using primaries only ,its not considered good
    practice though ,and it usually cost more money as secondaries are
    cheaper .

    Get the master one and either use it as is or remove the bell
    capacitor from it.

    Thanks - I may have to do as you suggest.
    But I cannot for the life of me see why nobody seems to offer what seems to
    me to be just the item that everybody would want {:-(

    Hi

    It is possible to make these up using clip in sockets, faceplate and the cct
    board from a filter.
    The total cost is about £8.
    I have been looking at offering a service making custom sockest as well as
    supplying off the shelf filters.
    but have seen limited demand for them so far.

    I could be wrong here... if you got a master with filters, can`t you
    bypass the "master" side and just connect to the "internal" side ?

    That wouldn't bypass the ring capacitor. As I've said, simple to
    remove it. Hey presto, secondary socket!

    I've actually done the reverse, had a twin outlet secondary socket,
    wanted a double primary. (PABX extension, phone and modem)
    As the circuit boards for secondary sockets are usually primary ones
    with the ring capacitor missing, it was simple to extract the ring cap
    from a standard master I had lying about, fit it in the appropriate
    place and parallel up the sockets.

    Of course, now everything is networked and routed to DSL, this
    carefully crafted masterpiece is redundant :)

  17. And amazingly they find their own products are the best!

    I especially liked "contains the most components used in any UK filter".

    ======================================

    Rich, where is the link? I'm curious!

    Actually, with filters, the more the components, the better the filter
    discriminates between wanted and unwanted frequencies.

    The quantity of components (they are coils and capacitors), is perhaps
    the best way of telling non-technical customers, as briefly as
    possible, how good a filter performs.

    A filter circuit is quite simple. There's little which can go wrong
    with it. What matters are the values of the coils (microhenrys) and
    capacitors (picofarads).

    IT people are generally non-technical insofar as the insides of
    filters are concerned. Filter salesmen know this. They are probably
    our good friends, the Japanese and Chinese. ;o)

    But I havn't seen your link yet.

  19. I don't have a link, it was in the article I replied to.
