for your ordinary telephone and cannot
be used for emergency calling. Alternative
arrangements should be made for access
to emergency services.
1.1
Power requirements
• This product requires an electrical
supply of 100-240 volts, single-phase
alternating current, excluding IT
installations defined in standard EN
60950-1.
• The electrical network is classified as
dangerous according to criteria in the
standard EN 60950-1. The only way to
power down this product is by
unplugging the power supply from the

outlet is located close to the apparatus
and is always easily accessible.
• The voltage on the network is
classified as TNV-3
(Telecommunication Network
Voltages, as defined in the standard EN
60950-1). Following a power cut, the
call in progress, as well as the date and
time settings will be lost.
! Warning
• Do not allow the handset to come into
contact with liquids or moisture.
• Do not open the handset, base station
or charger. This could expose you to
high voltages.
4
• Do not allow the charging contacts or
the battery to come into contact with
conductive materials.
• There is a slight chance that your
product could be damaged by an
electrical storm. We recommend that
you unplug the product from the
power supply and telephone socket
during a storm.
• Do not use the handset in an explosive
hazard area such as where there is gas
leaking.
• It is recommended that this product is
not used near intensive care medical
equipment or by persons with
pacemakers.
• This product can interfere with
electrical equipment such as answering
machines, television, radio, and
computers if placed too close. We
recommend that you position the base
station at least one meter from such
appliances.
• Use only the mains adapter supplied

polarity or voltage can seriously
damage the unit.

1.2
Digital security system
Your cordless phone uses a digital
security system to protect against false
ringing, unauthorized access, and charges
to your phone line.
There is a unique digital security code
programmed in each unit. When the base
and the handset are powered up the first
time, the handset automatically links with
the base ready for normal and secure use.
If you have purchased additional
accessory handset(s), you will need to
follow the registration procedure in
“Register the handset” in this manual to
maintain intact the digital security.
