2.2. Function keys & codes

Assigning the 4 keys shown above with LED corresponds to the first 4 assigned function keys configured via the service site. If none of the first four function keys are assigned, they can be used as line keys. I.e. pressing the key will open a new line.

The service site (also refer to service site manual) allows you to program function keys for the following functions:

Assignment of the function keys

Standard settings (i.e. no programming): Local Loop

Incoming calls are indicated respectively by the first LED (set to local loop) flashing.

  • When the call is answered the LED stays lit.
  • If a second call comes in during this call, the second LED flashes.
  • By pressing the key next to the flashing LED, the first call is automatically placed on hold and the second call answered.
  • You can now toggle between the calls by pressing the key next to the flashing or steady lit LED. In this manner, you can make a total of five calls at the same time.

Extension / telephone number

You can add any extension or telephone number to the busy lamp field.

- You can start a call by pressing the respective busy lamp key. If an internal extension is programmed, you can see whether that extension is currently busy:

  • If the LED next to the key flashes, the party receives a call.
  • If the LED is consistently lit, the party has answered a call and is currently busy.
  • If the LED next to the respective key flashes, you can take the call by pressing the respective key next to the flashing LED.

Intercom

You can add any extension in the PBX system and then use this function key to directly communicate with this extension through the intercom. The other party must have the intercom activated on their device. Intercom refers to a conventional intercom system (similar to walkie-talkies) directly connecting you to the other party’s speaker by pressing the assigned function key.
