Multi-Line connections (PBX)
Most offices use a central telephone system. While it is often
relatively simple to connect the fax machine to a key system or a
PBX (Private Branch Exchange), we suggest that you contact the
company that installed your telephone system and ask them to
connect the fax machine for you. It is advisable to have a separate
line for the fax machine.
If the fax machine is to be connected to a multi-line system, ask
your installer to connect the unit to the last line on the system. This
prevents the unit from being activated each time a telephone call is
If you are installing the fax machine to work with a PBX
It is not guaranteed that the unit will operate correctly under all
circumstances with a PBX. Any cases of difficulty should be
reported first to the company that handles your PBX.
If all incoming calls will be answered by a switchboard
operator, it is recommended that the Receive Mode be set to
MANUAL. All incoming calls should initially be regarded as
telephone calls.
Custom features on your phone line
If you have Voice Mail, Call Waiting, RingMaster, an answering
service, an alarm system or other custom feature on one phone
line it may create a problem with the operation of your fax machine.
