OVERVIEW

The Phone Line Manager 120B is the perfect solution if you have a dedicated line for your home office, and you need to connect a telephone and answering machine, as well as a fax or modem (but not both).

The Phone Line Manager 120B works smoothly with Distinctive Ring Service offered by most local phone companies (different companies have various names for this service; check with your phone company for details). In short, the Phone Line Manager 120B is able to recognize specific ring patterns assigned to your different phone numbers and route calls to the right device. What’s more, the Phone Line Manager 120B also works with Caller ID (requires service activation).

The Phone Line Manager 120B immediately answers every call in the Office mode. If you prefer to have all your extension phones ring normally, select the Home mode.

The Phone Line Manager 120B is so smart it stays on the line during every call, listening for instructions you enter using your phone’s keypad. So you can talk for a few minutes, push three keys, and transfer the call to your fax machine to receive a document—allon the same call.

With the Phone Line Manager 120B, you’ll never miss another important message while you’re away. That’s because a unique feature called Remote Message Notification can

be setup to automatically send a special tone message to any

desired telephone number—localor longdistance—tonotify

Note,

you when you receive a voice message or fax document.

The Phone Line Manager 230Benables up to four devices—usually a telephone, answering machine, fax, and modem—to use a single phone line. It’s ideal if you have two phone lines available, or if you have a single dedicated office line and need to connect a telephone and answering machine, as well as a fax and modem.

The Phone Line Manager 230B works smoothly with Distinctive Ring Service offered by most local phone companies (different phone companies have various names for this service; check with your phone company for details). Like its 120B version, the Phone Line Manager 230B is able to recognize specific ring patterns assigned to your different phone numbers and route calls to the right device.

The Phone Line Manager 230B can be set to answer every call in the Office mode. If you prefer to have all your extension phones ring normally, the Home mode can be set instead. The choice is yours.

The Phone Line Manager 230B also works with your telco’s Voice Mail service (requires Distinctive Ring Service activation) and Caller ID service (requires additional service activation).

Going away from the office for a while? The Phone Line Manager 230B can automatically send a special tone message to any desired telephone number—localor long distance— when you receive a voice message, fax, or data transmission. The Phone Line Manager 230B works equally well with

one or two telephone lines. The system is also compatible with two-linetelephones.

You can also convert your fax machine into a full-page,multidocument scanning system by using ourbuilt-inComScan® feature. Just touch a button, and your fax machine sends images directly into the fax/modem in your PC.

Technically Speaking

One-lineoperation can be set in either the Home mode or the Office mode, and to operate individually on Line 1 or Line 2. When theone-lineoperation feature is activated, calls will only be processed on one telephone line; however, the Phone Line Manager 230B (FX126A) will pass the other telephone line through to the phone port. Note that the factory setting forone-lineoperation is the Office mode.

Two-lineoperation can be set in either the Home mode or the Office mode, and to operate on two telephone lines. When thetwo-lineoperation feature is activated, calls will only be processed in the Home mode or Office mode on one telephone line (primary). However, the Phone Line Manager

230B will pass the other telephone line (secondary) through to

FX121A

the phone port. When the secondary call is answered on the phone port, the Phone Line Manager 230B will listen for tones to transfer the call (providing there is no current activity on the fax or modem port). If the correct tones are present, the call will be transferred accordingly.

If a call comes in on the primary line when the secondary line is in the process of receiving a call, the new call will be transferred to the phone port as well. Note that the factory setting for one-lineoperation is the Office mode.

Why Buy From Black Box?

Exceptional Value. Exceptional

Tech Support. Period.

Recognize any of these situations?

You wait more than 30 minutes to get through to a vendor’s tech support.

The so-called“tech” can’t help you or gives you the wrong answer.

You don’t have a purchase order number and the tech refuses to help you.

It’s 9 p.m. and you need help, but your vendor’s tech support line is closed.

According to a survey by Data Communications magazine, 90% of network managers surveyed say

that getting the technical support they need is extremely important when choosing a vendor. But even though network managers pay anywhere from 10 to 20% of their overall purchase price for a basic service and support contract, the technical support and service they receive falls far short of their expectations—andcertainly isn’t worth what they paid.

At Black Box, we guarantee the best value and the best support. You can even consult our Technical Support Experts before you buy if you need help selecting just the right component for your application.
