Equipment Approval Information
Your telephone equipment is approved for connection to the Public Switched Telephone
Network and is in compliance with parts 15 and 68, FCC Rules and Regulations and the
Technical Requirements for Telephone Terminal Equipment published by ACTA.
1 Notification to the Local Telephone Company
On the bottom of this equipment is a label indicating, among other information, the
US number and Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) for the equipment. You must, upon
request, provide this information to your telephone company.
The REN is useful in determining the number of devices you may connect to your
telephone line and still have all of these devices ring when your telephone number
is called. In most (but not all) areas, the sum of the RENs of all devices connected to
one line should not exceed 5. To be certain of the number of devices you may connect
to your line as determined by the REN, you should contact your local telephone
company.
A plug and jack used to connect this equipment to the premises wiring and telephone
network must comply with the applicable FCC Part 68 rules and requirements adopted
by the ACTA. A compliant telephone cord and modular plug is provided with this
product. It is designed to be connected to a compatible modular jack that is also
compliant. See installation instructions for details.
Notes
• This equipment may not be used on coin service provided by the telephone
company.
• Party lines are subject to state tariffs, and therefore, you may not be able to use
your own telephone equipment if you are on a party line. Check with your local
telephone company.
• Notice must be given to the telephone company upon permanent disconnection of
your telephone from your line.
• If your home has specially wired alarm equipment connected to the telephone
line, ensure the installation of this product does not disable your alarm equipment.
If you have questions about what will disable alarm equipment, consult your
telephone company or a qualified installer.

Interference Information
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following
two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference; and (2) This device
must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired
operation.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital
device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide
reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation.
This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not
installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference
to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur
in a particular installation.
If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which
can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to
correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna (that is, the antenna for radio or television
that is "receiving" the interference).
• Reorient or relocate and increase the separation between the telecommunications
equipment and receiving antenna.
• Connect the telecommunications equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from
that to which the receiving antenna is connected.
If these measures do not eliminate the interference, please consult your dealer or an
experienced radio/television technician for additional suggestions. Also, the Federal
Communications Commission has prepared a helpful booklet, "How To Identify and
Resolve Radio/TV Interference Problems." This booklet is available from the U.S.
Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 20402. Please specify stock number 004-
000-00345-4 when ordering copies

Installing the Phone
Connecting the Telephone Line
Choose the best location to install your telephone.Your telephone
should be placed on a level surface, such as a desk or table top.
1. Plug one end of the straight telephone line cord into the PHONE
LINE jack on the base.
2. Plug the other end into a wall jack.
3. Plug one end of the coiled handset cord into the jack on the handset.
4. Plug the other end into the HANDSET jack on the back of the base.
5. Place the handset on the base cradle.
6. Set the RINGER and DISPLAY BRIGHTNESS switches on the back of
the base to the desired settings.
7. Set the VOL switch on the side of the handset to the
desired setting.
Connecting the Electrical Power
1. Plug one end of the power supply cord into the back of the base.
2. Plug the other end into an electrical outlet.
CAUTION: Use only the ATLINKS USA 5-2608 power
supply that came with this unit. Using other power
supplies may damage the unit.
"No Worry" Battery Backup
This telephone is equipped with a memory holding system
powered by a customer-installed 9-volt alkaline battery
(not included).
When electrical power is interrupted, or the electrical line is
unplugged, the battery operates the clock to retain the time of day
and alarm settings in memory. When the unit is running on battery
power, the digital display does not light up; however, if wake time
occurs during the power interruption, the alarm buzzer sounds
(regardless of the type of alarm tone selected) if remaining battery
power is adequate. Normal operation resumes after electrical power
is restored.
-

Install the backup battery as follows:

1. Remove the battery compartment cover

located on the bottom of the base.
Battery
2. Connect a fresh 9-volt alkaline battery (not
included). Interlock the large and small
contacts on the battery clip and the battery. Once connected, place
the battery inside the battery compartment.
3. Replace the battery compartment cover.
NOTE: Alkaline (NEDA 1604A) batteries are recommended.
Carbon-zinc (NEDA 1604) batteries may be used but memory
holding time will be substantially reduced. Memory holding
time for a fresh alkaline battery is approximately 3 months (if
Wake System is not activated), which should take care of short,
nuisance-type AC power failures. To preserve battery life, the
phone should remain plugged into an AC electrical outlet. As
the battery gets older, its voltage drops and memory may be lost.
Be sure to replace the battery periodically. A backup battery is
not included with this telephone.
NOTE: If battery is not installed:
a) All memory will be lost if the unit is unplugged for more than
60 seconds.
b) The clock will stop running during a power outage period
but will start running when power resumes. The clock will blink
to indicate that the time may not be correct.
IMPORTANT: If storing this unit for more than 30 days, remove
the battery.
