Telephone REM

mxyplxJanuary 30, 2008

Is there some way to find the REM of a corded phone before I buy it online? They don't seem to publish that little gem of info.

I've tried every search I can think of. Nope. All I can find are definitions; but not any values for specific phones or groups of phones.

do you mean REN (Ringer Equivalence Number) ?

I don't think they worry about that anymore because the ringers nowdays are not "mechanical bells with coils".

I think the limit was 5.0 RENs and each normal "bell" telephone was 1.0 REN

Exactly!

I've got 3 phones with REN 0.7 each and one with REN 2.8 - total 4.9 - dangerously close to 5.0 - (there are problems) and would like to remedy that with a new phone with REN I did just now find an ATT992 with REN 0.1B stated in the manual which I will might get.
