# Get rid of excess volts/current

Hi

I have my gate hooked up to my phone. The problem i have is the phone always has an extra current of 0.01V and that activates the gate. I need to get rid of that current on the wire before it reaches the activator for the gate when the phone rings.
So when the phone rings the gate opens. How do i get rid of that extra 0.01v or current

Thank you in advance
cheers ;-)

0.01V is voltage, not current! What is gate? Is it the gate of a JFET or MOSFET. If it is one of those transistor, just change to one with higher turn on voltage! If you are not referring to a transistor, then I don't even know what you are talking about.

Ringing voltage is quite, you can always put a voltage divider in front of what ever gate you are talking about. A divide by 5 divider will change the voltage to 0.002V. When the ring is on, it should be in volts( I don't remember anymore), so even with a divide by 5, you still get over a volt.

## 1. How do I get rid of excess volts/current?

Excess volts/current can be reduced by using a voltage regulator or a current-limiting device. These devices control the flow of electricity and ensure that only the necessary amount is used.

## 2. What causes excess volts/current?

Excess volts/current can be caused by several factors such as overloading of circuits, faulty wiring, or malfunctioning equipment. It can also be a result of power surges or fluctuations in the power supply.

## 3. What are the dangers of excess volts/current?

Excess volts/current can damage electronic devices and appliances, cause fires, and pose a safety hazard to individuals. It can also lead to high electricity bills and decrease the lifespan of electrical equipment.

## 4. How can I measure excess volts/current?

The most accurate method to measure excess volts/current is by using a multimeter. It is a device that measures voltage, current, and resistance. Make sure to follow proper safety precautions when using a multimeter.

## 5. How can I prevent excess volts/current?

To prevent excess volts/current, it is important to regularly inspect and maintain electrical equipment and wiring. Use surge protectors, circuit breakers, and other safety devices. Avoid overloading circuits and always follow proper safety procedures when handling electricity.
