Two extensions from master socket


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

Please could I ask whether it is possible to wire two telephone extensions from a single master socket, or would the extensions require to be daisy-chained?

Many thanks.

I have two extension sockets which are not daisy chained.

Thanks for that Michael.

I don't suppose you remember how the master socket is wired to do this?

Just double up the wires into the 2 & 5 connectors on back of face plate:
Pin Colour Use
1 Not used
2 Blue/white "B" Wire
3 Orange/white Ring wire
4 White/orange Used for completeness or as earth in PABX systems.
5 White/Blue "A" wire
6 Not used

Just to add: Normal IDC connectors are only designed to have two wires inserted. Putting a third in can result in strains on the connector and the blades being pushed apart possibly resulting in a bad or failed contact.

Ok - thanks for the heads up.

I guess that means... 1 extension = best, 2 extensions = passable, 3 extensions = no?

1 - fine
2 - fine
3 - no

There is no reason why you cannot daisy chain extension 3 off one of the others though ...

Ideally you get an IDC/Krone tool for a quid or so to insert the wires. ADSL Nation, Maplin, B & Q and others. Do not strip the inner insulation off the actual wires - only the outer of the cable.
