The actual number of Caller ID records your module will store depends on the amount of Caller ID information sent by the phone company.

FCC INFORMATION

This module has been tested and found to comply with all applicable FCC standards.

We have designed your module to conform to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However, each module (and each device, such as a telephone or answering machine) that you connect to the telephone line draws power from the telephone line. We refer to this power draw as the device’s ringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is on the bottom of your module.

If you use more than one phone or other device on the line, add up all of the RENs. If the total is more than five (or three in rural areas), your telephones might not ring. If ringer operation is impaired, remove a device from the line.

Your module complies with Part 68 of FCC Rules. You must, upon request, provide the FCC registration number and the REN to your telephone company. Both numbers are on the bottom of the module.

Note: You must not connect your module to:

coin-operatedsystems

party-linesystems

most electronic key telephone systems

This equipment complies with the limits for a Class B digital device as specified in Part 15 of FCC Rules. These limits provide reasonable protection against radio and TV interference in a residential area. However, your equipment might cause TV or radio interference even when it is operating properly. To eliminate interference, you can try one or more of the following corrective measures:

reorient or relocate the receiving antenna

increase the distance between the equipment and the radio or TV

use outlets on different electrical circuits for the equipment and the radio or TV

Consult your local RadioShack store if the problem still exists.

ˆ Preparation

Your module’s display is protected by a piece of plastic film during shipment. Peel off this film before you use the module.

INSTALLING BATTERIES

Your module requires four AAA batteries (not supplied) to protect its memory during a power failure. For the best performance and longest life, we recommend RadioShack alkaline batteries.

Cautions:

Use only fresh batteries of the required size and recommended type.

Do not mix old and new batteries or different types of batteries (standard, alkaline, or rechargeable), or rechargeable batteries of different capacities.

When you replace the batteries, do not press any buttons on the module after you remove the old batteries. Doing so could erase all stored information.

When replacing the batteries, have fresh ones on hand before you begin. If you do not install the new batteries within about 2 minutes after removing the old ones, you will lose all the information stored in the module.

Follow these steps to install batteries.

1.If you are replacing batteries, unplug the module from the telephone line, the telephone, and AC power. Unplug both modular line cords from the back of the module.

2.Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the screw from the battery compartment cover.

3.Slide the battery compartment cover in the direction of the arrow until it stops, then lift up the cover.

Caution: The battery compartment cover is attached to the module. Do not try to remove it completely.

4.Place the batteries in the compartment, as indicated by the polarity symbols (+ and –)marked inside.

5.Close the cover and secure it with the screw. If you are replacing the batteries, reconnect the phone line, AC adapter, and the phone.

When BATT (battery) appears or the display dims, replace the batteries.

Warning: Dispose of old batteries promptly and properly. Do not burn or bury them.

Caution: If you do not plan to use the module for a month or more, remove the batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals that can destroy electronic parts.

CONNECTING THE AC ADAPTER

The module uses the supplied 9V, 200-mAAC adapter for power.

Cautions:

You must use a Class 2 power source that sup-

!plies 9V DC and delivers at least 200 mA. Its plug must fit the module's 9V DC 200mA jack. The sup-

plied adapter meets these specifications. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage the module or the adapter.

Always connect the AC adapter to the module before you connect it to AC power. When you finish, disconnect the adapter from AC power before you disconnect it from the module.

The supplied adapter was designed specifically for your module. Use only the supplied adapter.

To power the module, plug the adapter’s barrel plug into 9V DC 200mA on the back of the module. Then connect the other end of the adapter to a standard AC outlet.
