FEATURES

Your TAD-1006Digital Answering System Telephone with Time/Day Stamp is a sophisticated, fully digital message center that combines a telephone and an answering machine in one convenient package.

Fully digital means the TAD-1006stores all messages on a computer chip. This gives you advanced capabilities overtape-basedanswering machines. For example, you can save individual messages while the rest are deleted.

And, because your TAD-1006is fully digital, there are no tape mechanisms to wear out and no tapes to bother with.

READ THIS BEFORE INSTALLATION

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

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

4

FCC STATEMENT

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

Note: You must not connect your system to:

Coin-operatedsystems

Party-linesystems

Most electronic key phone systems

This device compiles with Part 15 of FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions:

This device may not cause harmful interference.

This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesirable operation.

2.Connect the AC adapter (see “Connecting the AC Adapter”).

3.Install a backup battery (see “Installing a Backup Battery” on Page 8).

company update the wiring for you.

The phone company will charge you for the installation of necessary jacks.

The USOC number of the jack to be installed is RJ11C for a baseboard jack or RJ11W for a wallplate jack.

4.Mount the TAD-1006(see “Mounting theTAD-1006”on Page 9).

5.Connect the handset (see “Connecting the Handset” on Page 12).

6.Set the TONE-PULSE switch (see “Setting theTONE-PULSESwitch” on Page 12).

SELECTING A

LOCATION

Select a location for the TAD-1006that is near a modular phone jack and an AC outlet, and out of the way of normal activities. You can place theTAD-1006on a flat surface (such as a desktop orcounter-top),mount it on a modular jack wall plate, or mount it directly on the wall.

CONNECTING THE AC ADAPTER

Caution: You must use a Class II AC adapter that supplies 12 volts of power, delivers at least 200 milliamps, and has a plug that properly fits the TAD1006’s12V DC jack with its center tip set to negative. The supplied adapter meets these specifications. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage the adapter and theTAD-1006.

1. Press STORE.

illustration

2.Enter the number you want to store (up to 16 digits).

Notes:

You can store phone numbers or special banking or telephone service numbers (such as access codes or account numbers) in memory.

For security purposes, we recommend that you do not store private numbers, such as personal identification numbers or passwords, in memory.

If you have pulse service and want to use tone dialing, enter at the appropriate place in the sequence of numbers.

To store one or more pauses in the memory number, see “Storing a Pause in Memory” on Page 15.

3.Press STORE again.

To store the number in a standard memory location, press a number key (0-9)to store the number in that location.

To store additional numbers, repeat Steps 1-4for each number you want to store.

Notes:

You cannot erase a number in memory, but you can change it by storing a new one in its place.

Write the memory location number and name associated with that number on the TAD-1006’smemory dialing card. (Use pencil in case you want to change it later.) To use the card, grasp and gently pull the tab on the front of theTAD-1006.

illustration

43-768.fmPage 15 Friday, August 13, 1999 2:49 PM

Storing a Pause in Memory

In some telephone systems, you must dial an access code (9, for example) and wait for a second dial tone before you can dial an outside number. You can store the access code with the phone number; however, you must also store a pause after the access code to allow the outside line time to connect.

To add one or more 2-secondpauses to a phone number you are storing in memory, pressREDIAL at each point where a pause is needed.

illustration

Note: Each pause entry counts as one memory digit in the stored number.

Dialing a Stored Number

To dial a number stored in a priority memory location, simply press that number’s priority memory dial key (P1,P2, orP3).

To dial a number stored in a standard memory location, press MEM then the desired memory number(0-9).

TAD OPERATION

Be sure you complete the procedures in “Installation” and “TAD Preparation” before you begin using the TAD.

SETTING THE TAD TO ANSWER/NOT ANSWER CALLS

To set the TAD to answer calls, simply turn it on by pressing ON/OFF so the ANSWER indicator turns on.

illustration

Note: You can also use a remote phone to set the TAD to answer calls. See “RemoteAnswer-On”on Page 27.

To set the TAD to not answer calls, simply turn it off by pressing ON/OFF so the ANSWER indicator turns off.

Answering Calls

After the TAD answers a call, the outgoing announcement plays, then the TAD sounds a beep and begins recording.

After the call is over (when the caller hangs up or the maximum message length of 1 minute is reached), the TAD hangs up and resets to answer

the next call. The PLAY indicator flashes to indicate an incoming message(s) has been recorded.

illustration

Notes:

Many local phone companies use calling party control (CPC) to signal that the caller has hung up. Your TAD recognizes a CPC signal and releases the line. If the TAD records phone company messages or dial tones, your local phone company probably does not use CPC.

If the TAD reaches 100 percent full while a caller is leaving a message, the TAD hangs up. When the next call comes in, the TAD plays the memory full announcement.

If the caller hangs up or is silent for more than 7 seconds after speaking for less than 2 seconds, or if the incoming message is less than 2 seconds in length, the TAD hangs up and resets to answer the next call, but does not record a message.
