  • Page 10: Combination Extensions, Using A Direct Connection, Using A Bridging Adapter

    Combination Extensions You can connect a standard device (such as a standard phone or an answering machine) on an extension by itself, or so that it shares an extension with another piece of equipment (either another standard device or a system phone). An extension with two devices connected to it is called a combination extension.

  • Page 11: Installation Procedures, Installing The Control Unit And Modules

    Installation Procedures Before installing the system, be sure you read the safety instructions on page ii. WARNING: There are no customer-serviceable components inside the system modules or backplane. There are hazardous voltages within that can cause severe or fatal personal injury. DO Installing the Control Unit and Modules Install the control unit’s backplane within five feet (1.5 meters) of a properly grounded AC electrical outlet (not...

    To power down the control unit, pull out the main circuit breaker on the control unit. On a PARTNER Plus 220V system, move the on/off switch to the “off” position (“O”). Press the AC power cord firmly into the power jack on the top right side of the backplane until it locks into place.

  • Page 13: Connecting Lines And Extensions

    Connecting Lines and Extensions If extensions are not wired to any modular jacks, call a qualified service technician. Test for dial tone at the network interface jacks before connecting outside lines to the control unit. For the test, connect a standard phone to the first network interface jack.

  • Page 14

    Connect modular telephone cords to 206 module extension jacks, starting at the top extension jack on the leftmost module. Route each cord through the hook on the front of the module, and then push the cords through the space below the module and out through the back.

  • Page 16: Assembling System Phones, Desk Mounting

    Assembling System Phones You can either desk mount or wall mount a system phone. If the system phone is manufactured with a separate stand, you can use the stand to either wall mount the phone or raise the angle of the phone when desk mounting.

  • Page 17: Wall Mounting

    Wall Mounting If you wall mount a display phone, the display may be difficult to read, so desk mounting is recommended. (Wall mounting instructions apply to corded MLS-model phones only. To wall mount an MLC-6 cordless phone, follow the instructions in the booklet provided with the phone.) Wall Mounting Phones with Separate Stands Reverse the plastic hook that sits in the earpiece part...

  • Page 18: Connecting And Testing Telephones

    Unscrew the phone’s four mounting screws and lift the base of the phone off the top. CAUTION: Do not touch electrical circuitry. To do so will expose you to a risk of electrical shock and possibly damage the equipment. Turn the base of the phone upside down so that the phone base can be mounted parallel to the wall—and then place it back on the base.
