With the associated telephone equipment "on-hook" the Call Barring Unit 1 draws
a continuous current of 2 micro Amps from the line, this may result in 'Low Loop' line
test conditions. The pulse detect circuit inserts a series resistance in the line and with
the telephone equipment in use a voltage of 2 volts can be measured between terminals E
and 4. The Call Barring Unit requires a minimum line current of 18 ma.
