DIGITAL GREETING AND INCOMING MESSAGES

greetings, recorded messages and remote code.
2. Reliability. There are no moving parts to break. The use of electronic components effectively
increases the life of your machine.
3. Operational Ease. There is no tape to rewind or entangle. You no longer have to worry about
replacing worn or damaged tapes.

accessed instantly for playback. In addition, other features such as Variable Speed

be announced to the calling party on the other line to indicate the busy status of the TA-180. The

This message will be repeated every ten seconds until the first line is no longer in use. The
greeting will play and the second calling party can then record a message.
