phone cut circuit

Posted on Feb 7, 2014

A while ago I got an email asking for the schematic of a circuit to detect cut phone lines. It didn`t take me long to find this circuit in Electronics Now. When the circuit detects that a phone line has been cut, it activates a MOSFET which can be used to drive a relay, motor, etc. It can also be connected to a security system. If the circuit is

connected to a security system or other circuit, both circuits must be electrically isolated from each other using an opto-isolator, relay, etc. This also means that the Cut Phone Line Detector must be powered by a seperate 9V supply.
