READ THIS BEFORE INSTALLATION

Each device that you connect to the phone line draws power from the phone line. We refer to this power draw as the device’s ringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is on the bottom of the phone.

If you are using more than one phone or other device on the line, add up all the RENs. If the total is more than five, your phones might not ring. In rural areas, a total REN of three might impair ringer operation. If ringer operation is impaired, remove a device from the line.

FCC STATEMENT

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

INSTALLING THE SPEAKERPHONE

To make full use of the Speakerphone’s features, you must connect it to two telephone lines, each with its own telephone number. However, you can connect it to a single line.

Notes:

The first Speakerphone you connect to the phone line is automatically set to Extension 11. Any additional Speakerphones you connect to the phone line will ring until you set its extension number (see “Setting the Station Extension Numbers” on Page 12).

You must connect the Speakerphone to the telephone lines before you plug in its AC adapter. Otherwise, each station will have the same extension number and the paging and intercom features will not work until you properly set all extensions (see “Setting the Station Extension Numbers” on Page 12).

You can connect your Speakerphone directly to a single 2-linemodular phone jack.

If you do not have 2-linephone jacks, you can use1-linemodular phone jacks or combine two1-linemodular phone jacks using a2-linecoupler (such as RadioShack Cat. No.279-401,not supplied).

If your phone line jacks are not modular jacks, you can update the wiring yourself, using jacks and adapters available at your local RadioShack store. Or, you can have the phone company update the wiring for you.

The USOC number of the jack to be installed is RJ14C (for a 2-linephone jack) or RJ11C (for a1-linephone jack).

INSTALLING THE BACKUP BATTERIES

The System 212 requires AC power to operate. However, if AC power fails or you unplug the speakerphone, the three AAA backup batteries (not supplied) save stored information. We recommend you use alkaline batteries, such as RadioShack Cat. No. 23-555.

Cautions:

Always use fresh batteries of the required size and type.

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

Disconnect the System 212 from the phone line(s) before replacing the backup batteries.

Notes:

To avoid losing stored information when replacing the batteries, leave the AC adapter plugged in, and have fresh batteries ready to install before removing the old ones.

Replace the batteries when BATT appears.

1.Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the screw from the battery compartment cover, then remove the cover.

2.Install three AAA batteries (two in the lower slot and one in the upper) as indicated by the polarity symbols

(+ and –)marked inside the battery compartment.

3. Replace the cover and the screw.

Cautions:

Always remove old or weak batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals that can destroy electronic parts.

Dispose of old batteries promptly and properly.

SELECTING A LOCATION

You can place the Speakerphone on a on a desk top, shelf, or table, or mount it on a wall. Select a location that is:

near an AC outlet

near the desired telephone line jack(s)

out of the way of normal activities

away from electrical machinery, electrical appliances, metal walls or filing cabinets, wireless intercoms, alarms, and room monitors

Placing the Phone on a

Desk Top

Follow these steps when you place the base on a desk, shelf, or table.

1.Remove the stand from the bottom of the phone by pressing and holding in both spring tabs, then gently pulling the wide end of the stand and lifting it off.

2.Plug one end of the supplied modular cord into the L1 & 2 jack on the bottom of the phone, then route the cord through the TELEPHONE LINE(S) slot.

8

the bottom of the telephone, then route the AC power cord through the AC ADAPTER CORD slot.

Do not plug the adapter into the AC outlet at this time.

Caution: The supplied AC adapter supplies 12V DC, delivers at least 300 mA, and has a plug that properly fits the telephone’s POWER jack. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications might damage the telephone or the adapter.

4.Insert the tabs on the narrow end of the supplied stand into the upper slots near the center of the phone, push the wide end of the stand until it clicks into place, then place the Speakerphone on the desk.

43-463.fmPage 9 Friday, August 13, 1999 9:06 AM

5.Plug the modular cord’s other end into the modular phone line jack(s) for Line 1 and Line 2, then plug the AC adapter into a standard AC outlet.

To silence the phone ringing, set the station extension number for the phone (see “Setting the Station Extension Numbers” on Page 12).

2.Insert the tabs on the narrow end of the supplied stand upward into the lower slots near the center of the phone, then push the wide end of the stand until it clicks into place.

Mounting the Phone on a Wall

You can mount your telephone on a wall plate, or you can mount it directly on the wall using two screws (not supplied) with heads that fit into the keyhole slots on the bottom of the telephone.

Note: If you are mounting the phone directly on the wall, drill two holes 315/16 inches (100 mm) apart. Thread the two screws into the wall, letting the heads extend about3/16 inch (5 mm).

1.Remove the stand from the bottom of the phone by pressing and holding in both spring tabs, then gently pulling the wide end of the stand and lifting it off.

3.Plug one end of the supplied modular line cords into the L1&2 jack on the bottom of the phone, then route the cord through the TELEPHONE LINE(S) slot.

4.Insert the supplied AC adapter’s barrel plug into the POWER jack on the bottom of the telephone, then route the AC power cord through the AC ADAPTER CORD slot.

Do not plug the adapter into the AC outlet at this time.

Caution: The supplied AC adapter supplies 12V DC, delivers at least 300 mA, and has a plug that properly fits the telephone’s POWER jack. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications might damage the telephone or the adapter.

5.Plug the modular cord’s other end into the modular phone line jack(s) for Line 1 and Line 2, then plug the AC adapter into a standard AC outlet.

To silence the phone ringing, set the station extension number for the phone (see “Setting the Station Extension Numbers” on Page 12).

6.Align the keyhole slots on the back of the stand with the wall plate studs or the screws in the wall, then carefully slide the phone down to secure it.

7.Lift out the handset holder, rotate it 180°, then snap it back into place so it holds the handset.
