Why we use -48 v dc in telecom ?

It is DC because an AC circuit would induct a hum on the line. 46-50 V is part of

the balanced current driven circuit to maximise distance and parallel extensions.
Using Ohms law, 50VDC with 42mA will give a loop resistance of roughly
1.2KOhms. This would allow a 0.5mm conductor to have a distance of around
7.5Km from the Exchange. Larger conductors of course could go further out.
Typically the further away you are from the exchange the larger the conductor
would be!

to prevent corrosion.. because negative polarity is achieved by grounding the

positive terminal of power supply system and the battery bank. This is done to
prevent electolysis depositions.

It's history, the first commutation central was selector mechanical and with use release iron
filings who was attracted by positive pole, so positive was set to the ground.
That's why we use negative hot pole.

Krishna Chaitanya To prevent the equipments from lightning strokes. Because the cloud is
negatively charged at bottom it requires a zero or a positive potential to discharge, and it
selects the ground (Zero potential) to discharge. If the Telecom Equipments are fed with
positive the cloud will choose the low resistance tallest positively charged Antenna's to
discharge, this could damage the entire setup of Telecom equipments. So the Telecom
equipments are fed with Negative supply Voltage.

Danish Ali Chaudhary Well, i have studied one reasearch paper on this ... researcher was a
germany.. he says that using - is becuase of the access of hole while negative has less
electrons.... for conventional current we take + as we believe that electron flow from + to - so
we use - for communication moreover, it also says that using negative (-) also helps the tower
and protects it from lightening... it was stated that lighting has high negative charge.... if we
use + for tower equipment... lighting will found the tower as the best absorbers or conductor
and it will try to flow from the equipment and there will be a huge blast....

Danish Ali Chaudhary Moreover, i have also read some where that using negative
charge it will save the equipment from corrosion... as i have worked on field... i have
never ever found corrosion on any IDU aur feeder.... or jumper..

48 (50) Volts in many countries the internationally recognised maximum voltage
that can be worked on before needing to become a registered electrician, 2: 48
Volts requires less conductor diameter for minimal voltage drop and 3: -48 Volts is
less prove to electrolysis build up.
