Plantronics APC-45 Electronic Hookswitch Cable

Plantronics APC-45 EHS Cable – 87317-01 Electronic Hook Switch communicates electronically with your phone giving your wireless headset answer/end and ring alerts remotely.

Electronic Hook Switch Cable for remote desk phone call control (answer/end). This cable eliminates the need for a HL10 Handset Lifter. This cable works with many desk phone makes and models. Visit our headset compatibility guide for further details.

The benefit of adding an EHS cable to your headset investment is you become much more productive when using your wireless headset. Key benefits include:

  • The ability to answer away from your desk and avoid running back to your desk for each call
  • Receive remote call alerts so you’re not missing calls to voicemail. This saves you time by not playing phone tag with callers
  • It automates how you take calls. This will simplify taking calls to pressing one button on your headset
  • You will extend your talk-time as your battery will only be used while on calls

Plantronics has several EHS adapters, each being unique to a specific telephone and wireless product.
We strongly suggest confirming compatibility with us before purchasing.

    Cisco SPA 525G2 REQUIRED ITEM – I received my SPA 525G2 phone, but when purchasing the phone it needs to say that the phone will not work without an APC-45 if using with a Cisco SPA 525G2 evidently. I’ve been trying to get to the bottom of this for several days and finally have. Plantronics told me if you use their SAVI 8210M with a Cisco SPA 525G2 you must have an APC-45 in order for the Cisco phone to work properly.
