Allows one to sieze a phone line for e.g. fire alarm system. Has an in pair
and an out pair with a shorting jumper that's moved when a (RJ45?) connector
is inserted. I'm gonna be putting in couple, one to keep the data calls
uninterruptable, and one for a future fire alarm. Cheaper than a second
phone line! A breakout cable should just take a few seconds to make, to
mate the one-connector 31X to a modem w/ phone in & out.
