Model 196 Loud Ringer

Discontinued: no replacement

For industrial telephone ringers, they are the #1 choice

The Stinger Ringer cuts through the noise of any environment with a powerful 110 dBA loudness. Its intense signal is transmitted in all directions and reaches every corner of an industrial location or home.

The Stinger 90, Model 196, operates directly from Central Office power. No local power source is required. Its modular plug connects to a standard telephone wall jack. A protected terminal block supports hard-wired installations. This unit is equipped with a three position volume switch (hi – med – low). Only one 196 can be connected to a POTS line or ATA port (Analog Terminal Adapter).

SIP Ringer: An ATA analog port (not included) with sufficient REN rating is required to use the 196 with VoIP systems.

Housed in a rugged metal weatherized case. The terminal strip is protected by a cover making the ringer ideal for indoor or outdoor installations.


If you work in a noisy or large area where the phones cannot be heard, the Stinger Ringer is the ideal solution for you. Car lots, lumber yards, warehouses, manufacturing plants, fire halls and farms would benefit from the Stinger Ringer. Or, if you have a hearing impairment, install the Stinger 90 in your home and never miss a call again.

The Stinger Ringers have proven themselves to be economical, labor-saving and extremely effective in a variety of applications.
