3 SYSTEM FUNCTIONS

Note: “Master Station” refers to proprietary system master station. “Telephone Master Station” refers to a single line telephone used as a limited-function Master Station. “Telephone Line” refers to outside telephone line communication.

3.1 STATION COMMUNICATION

3.1.1 SUB-STATION TO MASTER STATION (OR TELEPHONE MASTER STATION)

Sub-station call-in to a pre-assigned Master Station (or group of Master Stations) shall be activated by pushing and releasing the Sub-station call button. A brief call tone shall sound at the Sub-station to alert the caller when the call has been answered. Communication shall be handsfree at the Sub-station location. Sub-stations equipped with a call lamp shall flash the call lamp on and off immediately after call initiation. When the call is answered, the call lamp mode shall change from flashing to steady-on state. After the call is terminated, the call lamp shall revert back to the off state.

3.1.2 MASTER STATION (OR TELEPHONE MASTER STATION) TO SUB-STATION

Calling a Sub-station from a Master Station shall be accomplished by dialing the desired Substation number either with the handset on-hook or off-hook. Calling a Sub-station from a Master Station shall activate a brief tone at the Sub-station after which the calling party's voice may be heard and communication may commence. Sub-stations equipped with a call lamp shall light to steady-on state. Following a brief call tone, the Master Station shall be automatically connected to the Sub-station. The Master Station's voice shall be heard at the Sub-station while the Master Station operator is talking, and the Sub-station's voice shall only be heard at the Master Station when the Master Station operator stops talking. To terminate the conversation, the Master Station shall replace the handset or press the [C] key, which will also change the Sub-station call lamp to the off-state.

3.1.3 MASTER STATION TO MASTER STATION (OR TELEPHONE MASTER STATION)

Calling a Master Station or Telephone Master Station from a Master Station or Telephone Master Station shall be accomplished by dialing the desired station number either with the handset onhook or off-hook. A trill call tone shall be heard at the calling station handset or from the station's internal speaker if dialed with the handset on-hook. A trill call tone shall be heard at the called station. Lifting the handset shall stop the call tone and allow conversation to proceed. Alternatively, the call may be answered by pressing the [PTT] key for hands-free conversation. Either party may terminate the conversation by replacing the handset or pressing the Master Station’s [C] key.

3.2 CALL-IN TIME-OUT

The programmable Call-in Time-out function shall automatically terminate a call-in from “Normal” priority Sub-stations after a specific time if the call is not answered. The time-out period shall be programmable in one minute increments from one to ninety-nine minutes.

3.3 CONVERSATION TIME-OUT

The programmable Conversation Time-Out function shall automatically terminate intercom conversations after a pre-programmed duration, programmable in ten second increments from ten to nine hundred and ninety seconds. When the limited time is reached, a warning signal tone shall be transmitted to both the calling and called parties to terminate the conversation. The Conversation Time-Out shall not apply to “Emergency Conference”, “Outside-Line Telephone Conversation” or “Emergency Priority Sub-Station Calls”.

3.4 CONVERSATION MODES

Three different conversation modes shall be employed, depending on the type of stations in use.

12

3.14.6 NO-ANSWER CALL FORWARDING

The No-Answer Call Forwarding function shall automatically reroute calls to a Master Station or Telephone Master Station to a designated receiving station if the called party does not respond within a preset period of time, programmable from one to ninety-nine seconds in one second intervals. When several calls are simultaneously made to the original station, the original station shall begin its time count upon receiving the first call and then forward all waiting stations when the set interval time elapses. The designated receiving station can directly call the original station without interference from the No-Answer Call Forwarding function. When the designated receiving station is also registered for No-Answer Call Forwarding, the call shall be further rerouted to the second station. When the designated receiving station is busy, the original station continues to be called. The No-Answer Call Forwarding function shall be disabled when the designated receiving station has already been registered for Call Forwarding. The No-Answer Call Forwarding function does not interfere with a Sub-station call to a designated Group. Call representative station that is registered for No-Answer Call Forwarding. (The group call designation shall be given priority.)

3.14.7 BUSY CALL FORWARDING

The Busy Call Forwarding function shall automatically route calls to a busy Master Station or Telephone Master Station to a designated Master Station or Telephone Master Station. The Busy Call Forwarding function shall not interfere with a Sub-station call to a Group Call representative station that is registered for Busy Call Forwarding.

The Scan Monitor function shall allow any Master Station to automatically scan a designated group of up to sixteen Sub-stations for listen-only audio monitoring of each Sub-station. System programming shall allow a monitor interval time of one to ninety-nine seconds in one second intervals with a different interval time for each Master Station. The number or name of the Substation being monitored shall be displayed on the Master Station. The Scan Monitor function shall be available via hands-free or Master Station handset. It shall be possible to pause and restart the Scan Monitor function at any station within the group and advance or reverse monitoring by one Sub-station intervals. No audio shall be transmitted from the Master Station to the Substations being monitored unless the Master Station's [PTT] key is pressed. When the Sub-station to be monitored is busy, the busy indication shall be displayed together with a busy tone at the Master Station. Incoming calls to the Master Station in the process of scanning Sub-stations shall be indicated on the calling party display.
