many years. Clean it only with a soft cloth slightly dampened with water or
a mild soap. Do not use excess water or cleaning solvents of any kind.

FCC and ACTA Information
If this equipment was approved for connection to the telephone network prior
to July 23, 2001, it complies with Part 68 of the Federal Communications

Additional Information
Warning: Changes or modifications to this unit not expressly approved by
the party responsible for compliance could void the user's authority to operate
the equipment.
The equipment has been tested and found to comply with 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 and correct
the interference by one or more of the following measures:
FCC, ACTA Regulations
Administrative Council for Terminal Attachments (ACTA). We are required to
provide you with the following information.
1. Product identifier and REN information
The label on the back or bottom of this equipment contains, among other
things, an identifier indicating product approval and the Ringer Equivalence
Number (REN). This information must be provided to your local telephone
company upon request. For equipment approved prior to July 23, 2001, the
product identifier is preceded by the phrase “FCC Reg No.” and the REN
is listed separately. For equipment approved after that date, the product
identifier is preceded by “US” and a colon (:), and the REN is encoded in
the product identifier without a decimal point as the sixth and seventh
characters following the colon. For example, the product identifier
US:AAAEQ03T123XYZ would indicate an REN of 0.3.
The REN is used to determine how many devices you may connect to your
telephone line and still have them ring when you are called. In most, but
not all areas, the sum of all RENs should be five (5.0) or less. You may want
to contact your local telephone company for more information.
2. Connection and use with the nationwide telephone network
The plug and jack used to connect this equipment to the premises wiring
and the telephone network must comply with the applicable Part 68 rules
and technical requirements adopted by 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. An RJ11 jack should
normally be used for connecting to a single line and an RJ14 jack for two
lines. See Installation Instructions in the user’s manual. This equipment may
not be used with Coin Telephone Lines or with Party Lines. If you have
specially wired alarm dialing equipment connected to your telephone line,
ensure the connection of this equipment does not disable your alarm
equipment. If you have questions about what will disable alarm equipment,
consult your telephone company or a qualified installer.
