Step 1: Installing the Control Unit
FCC REGULATIONS
To comply with FCC regulations, notify your local telephone company of the
following before permanently connecting your system to their lines:
●
System registration number: AS593M-13529-KF-E
●
Ringer equivalence number: 0.8A
●
Telephone numbers of the lines to which you are connecting your system
For more information on FCC requirements and regulations, see "FCC
Registration and Repair Information" at the end of this manual.
PREPARE THE NETWORK
INTERFACE
The local telephone company provides you with the telephone numbers for
your outside telephone lines as well as an installed network interface with
1-line (RJ11-type) adapters, 2-line (RJ14-type) adapters, or a 50-pin (RJ21-type)
connector. See Figure 2.
Figure 2 Network interface 1-line and 2-line adapters, and a 50-pin connector.
Step 1: Installing the Control Unit 3
The 2-line adapter has two jacks, each of which carries a single-pair line from
the 2-line network interface jack. The 50-pin connector (attached to a 66-type
block) carries up to 25 lines. You can connect your outside telephone lines
from these (or other) network interface connectors to the control unit in many
ways. The method you use to connect your outside telephone lines to the
control unit depends on the type of network interface the local telephone
company installs at the control unit location. The table on the next page tells
you what to do next depending on the type of network interface you have.
If the
Network

the "Jack Field Wiring Supplement" at
the end of this manual.
1 Mark or label the interface with the
numbers for your outside lines.
2 See the instructions for extending
the network interface to the jack
field in the "Jack Field Wiring
Supplement" at the end of this
manual.
TEST THE OUTSIDE LINES
You may want to test whether a dial tone is audible at the network interface
connection. If so, you need either a basic rotary dial telephone, a Touch-Tone
telephone with a modular cord, or a tool that tests for dial tones. Because a
MERLIN Plus system voice terminal works only with a control unit, you
cannot use a MERLIN Plus system voice terminal for this test.
1 Bring the telephone or testing tool to the jacks for your outside lines
(either at the network interface or at the jack field).
2 Plug the telephone’s modular cord or the tool’s testing cord into each
outside line jack and listen for a dial tone. See Figure 3.

company check the line and the
network interface. Meanwhile, go
on to the next procedure,
"Mounting the Control Unit," and
continue with the installation.
Control Unit Location The control unit is designed to be mounted on a wall
in an environment that meets certain requirements for proper operation. (See
Figure 4.) Check that the following environmental and measurement
requirements are met before proceeding:
Warning Do not install the control unit in areas that may be exposed
to water leakage or accidental spills of liquids. In the event that
liquids come in contact with the control unit, turn off and unplug the
unit and contact your AT&T technician immediately.
●
The control unit is within 5 feet of a grounded ac power source.
NOTE: If the outlet is not properly grounded, install an 18-gauge (or
thicker) wire from the ground lug on the control unit to the building
ground. For more information on grounding and grounding tests, see
Appendix C: Grounding Requirements."
In areas of the country with frequent lightning or severe transient voltage,
you may also want to provide external protection to the control unit with
an ac surge suppressor at the wall power source. You can combine both ac
and CO line surge protection with the 147A Protector, installed as
described in CIB 3109.
●
6 Step 1: Installing the Control Unit
The control unit is within cord length of the network interface provided by
the local telephone company. Cord lengths are 7, 14, and 25 feet. Also,
up to 400 feet of DIW cable can be used to connect the network interface
to the control unit.
●
The control unit is within 6 inches of a jack field.
●
The network interface is available for installation or has already been
installed.
●
The wiring runs from the control unit to the voice terminal locations do
not exceed 1000 feet.
●
The temperature range of the location is between 40 and 104 °F
(4 to 40 °C).
●
The control unit location is safe from sources of extreme heat (furnaces,
heaters, attics, or direct sunlight).
●
The control unit has at least 1 inch of ventilation space around its sides.
●
The control unit location is safe from exposure to corrosive gases, dust,
chemicals, or similar substances.

Step 1: Installing the Control Unit 7
Equipment
Four 1 1/4-inch No. 8 self-tapping screws come with the system for mounting
the unit on a wall. Regardless of the mounting surface, you will need a
long-shafted screwdriver for your installation. However, the construction of
the wall you have selected for mounting the control unit determines if you
will need additional or substituted items for mounting.
You will need:
If the mounting surface is:
Concrete
Brick
Concrete block
Four 1 1/4-inch No. 8 masonry anchors
Plaster
Plasterboard
Four 3/16-inch toggle bolts
Plywood
Sheet metal
Screws supplied and one 9/64-inch drill bit
In addition to the screwdriver and hardware mentioned, you also need:
●
Pencil or other sharp-pointed marker
●
Notepaper
●
Tape measure
●
Power drill (or hand drill)
●
Appropriate drill bits
Removing Control Unit Covers
Locate and identify the front and top covers of the control unit
(Figure 5).
FIGURE 5 The control unit’s front and top covers.
8 Step 1: Installing the Control Unit
Locate the back of the control unit and note the four screw holes used for
securing the control unit to the wall (Figure 6).
FIGURE 6 The control unit (rear view).
As noted in Figure 6, the horizontal distance between the center of these
holes measures 8 3/8 inches, and the vertical distance measures 14 7/16
inches. Make note of these measurements since you may need them to locate
and drill mounting holes in the wall.
In order to reach the mounting holes from the front of the control unit, you
have to remove the front and top covers. Remove the front cover by pressing
down on the two top corner tabs and pulling the top away from the control
unit, as shown in Figure 7.
FIGURE 7 Removing the front cover from the control unit.
Step 1: Installing the Control Unit 9
Remove the top cover by first unscrewing the screw located at the center
bottom of the cover. This screw is designed to stay in the hole of the cover
after it has been removed from the control unit. Press down on the tab
located at the center of the top and back edge and pull the top cover away, as
shown in Figure 8.
Once these covers are removed, you can reach the screw holes from the front
of the unit.
FIGURE 8 The top cover removed, revealing top screw holes.
Wall-Mounting Procedure
The wall surface and individual circumstances determine the exact procedure
for mounting the control unit on the wall. Use the following instructions and
Figure 9 as a guide for installing your system.
1
Using the dimensions shown in Figure 6, mark the centerline positions of
the holes to be drilled on the wall.
or
Place the control unit on the wall where you plan to mount it, and, once
you’ve checked that it is level, use the holes in the control unit as guides
to mark the positions of the holes to be drilled on the wall.
Place the control unit aside.
2
Drill the four holes and insert the bottom two screws until they are
screwed in about half their length.
3
Fit the control unit’s bottom screw slots on the two screws.
4
Press the unit against the wall and insert the top two screws.
5
Tighten all screws.
10 Step 1: Installing the Control Unit
FIGURE 9 Mounting the control unit on the wall.
Step 1: Installing the Control Unit 11
INSERT THE MODULES
The control unit comes with covers in place and with the following modules
already installed:
●
Power supply module
●
Memory module
●
Line module (line board)
●
Voice terminal module (station board)
You have already removed the front and top covers to mount the unit on the
wall. The power supply module is on the left inside the control unit. See
Figure 10. The memory module houses a battery that will preserve all
programming for at least four days in case of a power failure. The voice
terminal module (station board) has 10 jacks for 10 voice terminal connections,
and the line module (line board) has 4 jacks for outside line connections and
one jack for auxiliary use. Notice the protective safety latches at the bottom
of the line and voice terminal module slots.
FIGURE 10 The control unit modules.
If you did not order a second line or voice terminal module, go on to the next
procedure, "Connect the Control Unit to the AC Outlet." However, if you
have ordered the additional two modules, insert them now following the
instructions below.
CAUTION: Make sure the power cord is unplugged and the power
switch on the control unit is set to Off before you insert or remove
any modules. You risk damage to the system and the modules if the
power is on during this procedure.
12 Step 1: Installing the Control Unit
Inserting a Line Module
Make sure that the power switch is off and that the system is unplugged from
the power source. Then do as follows:
1 Be sure the top and front covers are off.
2 Locate the slot immediately to the right of the line module already
installed. Notice the plastic channels at the top and bottom of the slots.
3 Align the top and bottom edges of the line module to the channel
openings so that the gold connectors face in and the components face out
and to the right of the slot.
FIGURE 11 Inserting a second line module.
4 Hold the module by the plastic knob and slide it into the slot. See
Figure 11.
5 Slide the module in until the gold connectors insert fully into the port at
the back of the unit and the module snaps into place.
6 Check that the module is held in place by the safety catch at the bottom of
the slot. It should fit snugly against the bottom front of the module.
CAUTION: You may need to exert mild force to insert the module;
however, do not use excessive force. If you have difficulty, remove
the module from the slot, align the module properly, and try again.
If you still have difficulty, check the module and the channel for
damage. If you find any damage, such as broken pieces or plastic
chips, contact your equipment supplier for assistance. If there is no
damage, try one more time; the module should snap into place.
Step 1: Installing the Control Unit 13
Inserting a Voice Terminal Module
Make sure the power is off, the control unit is not plugged into the power
source, and the covers are off. Then locate the slot between the voice
terminal module and the line module already in place. Align the edges and
install the voice terminal module using the same procedure you used for
inserting the line module. Check to see that the module is securely in place.
See Figure 12 at (a).
When two line modules and two voice terminal modules are installed in this
system, the control unit is at full capacity as shown in Figure 12 at (b). As
designed, empty space remains to the left of the first voice terminal and to
the right of the second line module.
FIGURE 12 (a) Inserting a second voice terminal module; (b) control unit at full
capacity.
Once you have installed all modules, go on to the next procedure, "Connect
the Control Unit to the AC Outlet."
14 Step 1: Installing the Control Unit
CONNECT THE CONTROL
UNIT TO THE AC OUTLET
The ac outlet should be a 117-volt, 60-Hz, 3-prong, third-wire grounded
outlet. You should have an electrician check the outlet’s third wire to make
sure the outlet is properly grounded. Proper grounding helps protect the
system against damage from power surges caused by static discharges and
lightning. See "Appendix C: Grounding Requirements" before connecting
the control unit to the power source.
Once you are satisfied that the outlet is properly grounded, connect the
control unit to the ac outlet as follows:
1
Make sure the power switch on the control unit is set to Off.
2
Plug one end of the power cord into the socket just below the power
switch on the front of the control unit.
3
Thread the cord through the cable channel at the bottom of the control
unit.
4
Plug the other end of the cord into the ac outlet, allowing for a foot or so
of slack.
5
Set the power switch on the control unit to On.
The green power light on the control unit goes on.
The red warning light on the control unit blinks once, then goes off unless a malfunction
occurs.
The orange light on the power module goes on indicating that the outlet is properly wired
and grounded. If the orange light is off when the green light is on, the outlet is not
functioning, or may be miswired or improperly grounded. Contact a qualified electrician
immediately.
See Figure 13.
FIGURE 13 The control unit attached to power source.
As soon as the unit is turned on, the red warning light should flash once,
then remain off. Observe the lights on the control unit to determine its
condition before proceeding. If any of the conditions described in the
following table exist, take the recommended steps to correct the situation.
Step 1: Installing the Control Unit 15
If
Then
The green power light doesn’t go
on and the orange light on the
power switch also doesn’t go on
Test the outlet by plugging in a radio or a
lamp.
The green power light is on, but
the orange power switch light is
off .
The outlet is not functioning, is miswired or
improperly grounded. Have it repaired or use
another outlet.
The green power light is off but
the orange power switch light is
on and the outlet is working
properly
Stop the installation. Turn off the control
unit, unplug it from the ac outlet, and contact
your equipment supplier for assistance.
The red warning light continually
flashes or remains lit
Unplug the power cord and plug it in again.
The red warning light continues to
flash or remains lit
Set the power switch to Off, and make sure
that each module is seated firmly in its slot.
Then set the power switch to On.
If the red warning light still
continually flashes or remains lit
Stop the installation. Contact your equipment
supplier for assistance.
When the unit is on and only the green power light and orange power switch
light remain on, the control unit is working correctly. Before you connect any
lines to the control unit, turn the power off.
CONNECT THE OUTSIDE
LINES TO THE CONTROL
UNIT
As shown on the label attached to the power module, control unit line jacks
are designated by the letters A through H. The A line jack is the second from
the top, B is third from the top, C is fourth, and so on. The topmost line
jack, the Auxiliary jack, is described under "Auxiliary Line Telephone" in this
manual.
Connect the outside lines to the line jacks in an unbroken sequence. If you
start with A, for example, the next connection should be B, the next C, and
so on. Although any outside line can be connected to any line jack, do not
skip jacks once you have begun. If you start with B, the next connection
should be C, followed by D, and so on. This simplifies future line
administration.
Also, group special line types such as WATS lines together in the sequence,
and place personal lines, if any, at the end of the sequence.
You need the following items to connect the control unit to the jacks for your
outside lines, whether they appear at the jack field, or at the network
interface.
●
A completed System Configuration Form (Figure 14)
●
A single-pair modular line cord for each outside line
Use a 7-foot cord if the control unit is within 6 feet of the network
interface; use longer cords as required for greater distances. Only use one
cord length; don’t use extensions.
16 Step 1: Installing the Control Unit
FIGURE 14 A System Configuration Form.
See Figure 15 and follow this procedure to connect your outside lines:
1
Refer to your System Configuration Form when connecting the outside
lines you’ve assigned to each line jack on the control unit. The outside
line numbers are the telephone numbers listed at the network interface.
2
Mark or label a D2R cord on both ends with "A."
3
Plug one end of the line cord into the control unit jack labeled "A."
4
Plug the other end of the cord into the network interface or jack field that
corresponds with the telephone number shown on your System
Configuration form.
5
Repeat steps 2 through 4 for lines B through H or until you have
connected all your outside lines to the control unit.
CAUTION: Do not run cords inside or on top of air plenums or ducts,
along hot pipes, or across walkways. If you use staples to attach the
cords to a wall, be careful not to pierce the cords.
Step 1: Installing the Control Unit 17
FIGURE 15 The control unit connected to labeled outside lines.
NOTE: If you’re in an area with frequent lightning activity or severe
transient voltage and are using the 147A Protector (see CIB 3109), the
outside lines from the control unit plug into corresponding jacks on
the protector itself.
18 Step 1: Installing the Control Unit
Step 2: Wiring the Voice Terminals
PREPARATION
CONSIDERATIONS
Before connecting the voice terminals to the control unit, keep your System
Configuration Form handy and review the following:
Locations
●
The wiring run from the control unit to a voice terminal location cannot
exceed 1000 feet.
●
A voice terminal located in another building requires two Model 341 InRange, Out-of-Building (IROB) protectors. (See Section 5, "Reference," in
the System Manual for more information on IROB protectors.)
Intercom Numbers
●
The intercom numbers for a MERLIN Plus system with 10 or fewer voice
terminals run from 10 to 19.
●
For a system with more than 10 voice terminals, the numbers run from 10
to 29.
●
These numbers correspond to the numbers on the voice terminal jacks on
the control unit. For example, the voice terminal to which you’ve
assigned intercom number 12 will be connected to the control unit through
voice terminal jack number 12.
Intercom 10
●
By design, the intercom 10 position is the primary call-handling position in
the system. It is also the position used for system administration.
●
You should assign intercom number 10 to the attendant’s location.
●
The voice terminal you’ve assigned to the attendant’s location should be a
22-button (BIS-22) or 34-button (BIS-34D or BIS-34) model. (See Section 4,
"Using the Attendant Console," in the System Manual for more
information.)
Step 2: Wiring the Voice Terminals 19
Intercom 19 and Printed Reports
●
Printed reports require a MERLIN Plus System Data Collector and a
printer (AT&T 475 or equivalent).
●
The MERLIN Plus system is capable of printing for your use two kinds of
reports. The Call Report (also known as the Station Message Detail
Recording [SMDR]) prints records of outgoing and/or incoming calls.
System Feature Report (SFR) allows you to verify with a printout your
administered systemwide features as well as the individual features
programmed onto voice terminals. If your system will not have the Call
Report option or if you do not plan to verify your system or voice terminal
features, skip this section, go onto "Intercoms 11 through 29," and treat
intercom number 19 just like any other intercom number available for
assignment to a voice terminal.
●
If you will be printing Call Reports or System Feature Reports, you should
know that the system automatically assigns intercom number 19 to the
data collector and printer. But if you want to assign intercom number 19
to a voice terminal and assign another intercom number to the data
collector and printer, you can do so.
●
A good alternate choice for the data collector and printer is the intercom
number directly following the last intercom number you plan to assign to
a voice terminal. For example, if you have 15 voice terminals, they will be
assigned intercom numbers 10 through 24 (corresponding to voice terminal
jacks 10 through 24 on the control unit). You would then connect the data
collector and printer to voice terminal jack 25 on the control unit during
system installation and assign intercom number 25 to the Call Report
feature during system administration.
Intercoms 11 through 29
●
After you have assigned intercom number 10 to the system attendant’s
location and another intercom number to the data collector and printer (if
you are using them), assign intercom numbers to the voice terminals in
the remaining locations in any order that makes sense to you. To simplify
system administration, however, you should assign consecutive intercom
numbers beginning with 11.
●
Each jack number of the control unit’s voice terminal module corresponds
to the intercom number of the voice terminal to be plugged into it.
20 Step 2: Wiring the Voice Terminals
VOICE TERMINAL WIRING
PROCEDURE
When you planned your system, you recorded the intercom numbers for
specific locations within your business on the System Configuration Form.
Check and make a note of these assignments now, before you begin
connecting the voice terminals to the control unit. When you are ready,
install the voice terminal wiring as follows:
1 Use your System Configuration Form as a reference for each intercom
number.
2 Mark or label a D8W cord on one end with "10."
3 Plug the unlabeled end into the control unit jack that is labeled "10."
4 Plug the other end into the corresponding jack in the jack field.
5 Repeat steps 2 through 4 for the remaining intercom numbers, 11, 12, and
so forth, until all voice terminal wiring is connected.
NOTE: For short and temporary connections, you can connect the
voice terminals directly to the control unit. However, the jack field
connection is the recommended method. See Figure 16.
FIGURE 16 Connecting voice terminal wiring through a jack field.
Step 2: Wiring the Voice Terminals 21
Step 3: Connecting the Voice Terminals
Any of the following voice terminal models will work at any voice terminal
location connected to your MERLIN Plus system:
●
5-Button voice terminal
●
BIS-10 voice terminal
●
10-Button voice terminal
●
10-Button voice terminal with Hands Free Answer on Intercom
(HFAI-10)
●
BIS-22 voice terminal
●
BIS-34D with Display voice terminal
●
BIS-34 voice terminal
●
34-Button (SP-34) voice terminal with speakerphone
●
34-Button (SP-34) voice terminal with speakerphone and display
●
34-Button deluxe voice terminal
●
34-Button voice terminal
Assign voice terminals to their locations based on the requirements of your
system and the needs of individual users. For example, an
attendant/receptionist at the intercom 10 location will require a BIS-34D, 34Button or 22-Button voice terminal. Refer to your completed System
Configuration Form when necessary.
PREPARE THE VOICE
TERMINALS
The following items come boxed together:
●
Voice terminal body
●
Handset
●
Coiled handset cord
●
Modular voice terminal cord
●
Desk stand and/or wall mount
●
Instructions for assembling the voice terminal
See Figure 17 as you prepare each voice terminal for connection to the system
as follows:
1 Attach the desk stand or wall mount to the voice terminal body according
to the instructions that came with the components.
2 Plug one end of the coiled handset cord into the handset.
3 Plug the other end of the coiled handset cord into the jack near the
handset rest at the lower edge of the voice terminal body. The jack also
may be located at the base of the voice terminal body and have a handset
symbol next to it.
4 Plug the modular voice terminal cord into the jack labeled "Line" at the
base of the voice terminal.
22 Step 3: Connecting the Voice Terminals
NOTE: The control unit power should be off at this point. However, if
the power is on and the other end of this modular voice terminal cord is
already plugged into the control unit, a red light may go on next to a
button when you plug the cord into the line jack on the voice terminal,
and the voice terminal may ring. Don’t be alarmed. The red light should
go on if the control unit power is on; go to the next step.
5 Find the Test/Program (T/P) switch on the left side of the voice terminal
and set it to the center position. If the switch is set to T or P, the voice
terminal rings as soon as you connect it to a system that is turned on.
Turn the power off at the control unit until you are ready to test the voice
terminals.
6 Find the volume control for the ringing tone, also on the left side of the
voice terminal, and slide it to the center position. See Figure 18.
FIGURE 17 Preparing the voice terminal desk stand or wall mount.
FIGURE 18 Setting the ringer volume control to the center.
Step 3: Connecting the Voice Terminals 23
CONNECT EACH VOICE
TERMINAL TO THE
SYSTEM
Since the voice terminal module can be damaged if a modular cord is
unplugged while there is power to the control unit, make sure that the
control unit power is off before connecting each voice terminal to the system.
This prevents you from damaging the voice terminal module if you
accidentally pull on a cord that is attached to it. When the power is off,
follow these steps to connect each voice terminal to the system:
1 Place the voice terminal in its designated location.
2 Plug the voice terminal into the wall jack or control unit jack as indicated
on the System Configuration Form.
3 Go on to "Testing Each Voice Terminal."
TESTING EACH VOICE
TERMINAL
When you have completed the voice terminal connections, you are ready to
test that they are connected properly.
Preparing For Testing
Make sure that the Test/Program (T/P) switch on the left side of each voice
terminal is set to the center position. This step prevents the phones from
ringing when the power at the control unit is turned on. Also, make sure the
volume control for ringing and button clicks located on the left side of each
voice terminal is in the center position.
If you’re using a BIS, SP, or HFAI model voice terminal, adjust the
speakerphone volume according to the model you have:
For 10-Button models, the speakerphone volume switch is located on the right
side of the voice terminal (Figure 19).
1 Slide the switch away from you to increase the volume.
2 Slide the switch towards you to decrease the volume.
On 22- and 34-Button models, the speakerphone volume is adjusted by a
thumbwheel located on the face of the voice terminal (Figure 19).
1 Turn the thumbwheel to the right to increase the volume.
2 Turn the thumbwheel to the left to decrease the volume.
Testing the Voice Terminals
When you have prepared each voice terminal for testing, test them as follows:
1
Turn on the power at the control unit.
A red light goes on next to a line button when you plug a voice terminal into it.
2 Test to see that each voice terminal operates properly by sliding the T/P
switch to T and, if necessary, holding it there. See Figure 20.
All the red and green lights on the voice terminal begin to flash, and a tone sounds.

As you test the voice terminals, label each one with its intercom number as
follows:
1 Fill in an intercom number label for each voice terminal.
2 Pry the plastic number card retainer away from its slot beneath the
handset using a straightened paper clip or similar tool.
3 Lay the intercom number label in the slot, and replace the plastic retainer
(Figure 21).
Step 3: Connecting the Voice Terminals 27
FIGURE 21 Verifying and labeling the intercom number.
28 Step 3: Connecting the Voice Terminals
AUXILIARY LINE
TELEPHONE
The auxiliary jack (the top jack) on each line module bridges and monitors the
outside line connected to the first line jack (the second jack from the top, line
A) on the module. If you have a second line module, its auxiliary jack
connects to line E, and you can gain access to it with a basic Touch-Tone or
rotary dial telephone. Note the location of the Aux jack in Figure 22.
This jack provides many services.
●
You can connect accessories, such as a modem, answering machine, or a
Fax machine to it and reap the benefits of a dedicated line.
●
When the line is not used by any accessory attached to the Aux jack,
MERLIN Plus system voice terminal users have access to it.
●
The jack can be used as a single-line extension phone that not only works
as part of the MERLIN Plus communications system, but also continues to
work after a power failure.
NOTE: A MERLIN Plus system voice terminal is not designed for and
will not work in the Aux port.
FIGURE 22 The auxiliary line jack on the line module.
See Section 5, "Reference," in the System Manual for more information about
auxiliary line devices and their proper use.
Step 3: Connecting the Voice Terminals 29
Step 4: Testing the System
Now that your system is in place, you should test it to make sure that it’s
operating properly. The following tests will help you determine if your
system’s components are working as they should. If these tests reveal any
problems, find their solution in Section 7, "Troubleshooting the System," in
the System Manual and take the recommended corrective action.
CAUTION: Turn the control unit power off when plugging and
unplugging modular cords.

Dial the intercom number for the voice terminal where the other person is
waiting for the call.
Through the speaker or your handset you’ll hear the other voice terminal ring.
At the other voice terminal, one long beep sounds, the red light glows steadily next to the
fifth button down (Intercom) in the leftmost row of buttons, and the green light next to
the red light flashes.
4
When the other person answers, speak into your speaker or handset to
verify two-way communication.
At the other voice terminal, the green light stops flashing and glows steadily.
5
After verifying two-way communication, touch Speakerphone or hang up
the handset at both voice terminals.
On both voice terminals, the lights go out, and the red light goes on next to the fourth
button down in the leftmost row of buttons.
TEST EACH LINE NUMBER
Go to the voice terminal for intercom 10. From any other voice terminal in
your system, have another person dial your outside telephone line numbers
in order as follows:
1
Using a line other than the one to be dialed, have the other person dial
the number for line A.
When your voice terminal starts to ring, the green light flashes and the red light goes on
next to the button for line A (the fourth button down in the leftmost row.)
If the green light flashes next to the wrong line button, make sure the
connections are correct between the jacks in the line module(s) in the
control unit and the jacks at the network interface or in the jack field.
(For example, you may have plugged the line cord for line A into the
wrong jack on the control unit.)
2
When you have verified two-way communication, touch Speakerphone or
hang up the handsets at both voice terminals.
3
Repeat the above steps for line B, line C, and so forth until you have
tested all of your telephone numbers.
Once all tests are completed successfully, replace both control unit covers.
SPEAKERPHONE
PERFORMANCE TIPS
34 Step 4: Testing the System
For optimal use of the speakerphone on the BIS, HFAI, or SP voice terminals,
follow these guidelines:
●
Place the voice terminal in an area with low background noise.
●
Room acoustics and background noise may affect the proper operation of
your voice terminal’s speakerphone. High background noise is caused by
loud voices and loud office equipment such as typewriters, copiers, etc.
●
Keep books and papers away from the area under and next to the
microphone.
●
Let one person talk at a time. When both parties speak simultaneously,
transmission can be broken.
●
Always face your terminal when talking.
●
Place your voice terminal at least six inches away from the edge of the
desk or table upon which it rests.
Step 5: Adding Accessories
Once you have installed your MERLIN Plus system, you may want to add
accessories to enhance its capabilities.
ACCESSORY EQUIPMENT
You can connect the headset adapter or the general purpose adapter to the
port labeled OTHER on the voice terminal. A headset can be plugged into
the headset adapter while the general purpose adapter allows you to connect
Touch-Tone (not rotary) equipment, such as modems, autodialers, answering
machines and telephone extensions (including cordless telephones) to your
voice terminals. See Figure 27.
FIGURE 27 MERLIN Plus system accessories that plug into a voice terminal’s
OTHER port.
Step 5: Adding Accessories 35
You can also add accessory equipment to the system that plugs into the
control unit. You can add a data collector and printer to your system to
collect data on calls and print Call Reports. The 450F adapter allows the data
collector to share port 19 with the Busy Buster feature. Refer to the MERLIN
Plus System Manual for more information on Busy Buster. See Figure 28.
You may also add a Basic Telephone and Modem Interface (BTMI) in order to
connect a basic telephone, dialing modem, or facsimile machine to the
system. See Figure 29.
FIGURE 28 MERLIN Plus system data collector and printer.
36 Step 5: Adding Accessories
FIGURE 29 MERLIN Plus system Basic Telephone Modem Interface.
If you have a compatible audio system, you can connect it to the Music-onHold jack to provide background music or prerecorded messages for incoming
calls. See Figure 30.
Caution Users of equipment that rebroadcasts copyrighted music or
other material may be required to obtain a copyright license from a
third party, such as ASCAP or BMI.
You can connect a Loudspeaker Paging System to the control unit to page
people, make announcements, and provide background music. If your
paging system is electronically compatible, you have the option of connecting
it to a CO port, so that you can place and receive calls whenever paging is
not in progress. However, when connecting the paging system to a CO port,
be sure to refer to the MERLIN Plus System MANUAL for proper administration
procedures. See Figure 31.
Step 5: Adding Accessories 37

FIGURE 31 MERLIN Plus system Loudspeaker Page connected to CO line.
38 Step 5: Adding Accessories
FIGURE 32 MERLIN Plus system alerters.
FIGURE 33 MERLIN Plus system CO line wiring accessories.
Supplemental alert adapters allow you to connect alerting devices such as
horns, bells, and strobe lights to your system. See Figure 32.
See Figure 33 for other Central Office (CO) line accessories and voice terminal
wiring accessories.
To add accessory equipment to your system, follow the instructions that come
with the components.
Step 5: Adding Accessories 39
Accessories that Extend Telephone Range
You may have to provide a voice terminal power supply for a voice terminal
located more than 1000 feet from the control unit. In such cases, you’ll need a
power supply kit that allows you to double the range of the wiring run from
the control unit to the voice terminal. See Figure 34.
If you place a voice terminal in another building outside of the main building,
but within 1000 feet of the MERLIN Plus system control unit, the voice
terminal becomes an In-Range, Out-of-Building (IROB) voice terminal. You
must use two Model 341 IROB protectors to protect the control unit and the
IROB voice terminal from lightning, contact with power lines, or power
currents induced by power lines. You must place one IROB protector where
the cable from the control unit leaves the building, and place the other where
the cable enters the building in which the IROB voice terminal is located. See
Figure 35.
See Section 5, "Reference," in the System Manual for more information on
installing and operating power accessories.
FIGURE 34 A MERLIN Plus system voice terminal power supply kit.
40 Step 5: Adding Accessories
FIGURE 35 An ln-Range, Out-of-Building protector.
Step 5: Adding Accessories 41
Step 6: Changing the System
Your MERLIN Plus communications system is designed so that you can make
changes quickly and easily. You can increase your system’s capacity by
adding outside lines or voice terminals. Modular plugs on much of the
system wiring and labels on key components make it easy for you to
reorganize the system in the event of office rearrangement.
The most common system changes are adding an outside line, adding a voice
terminal, and moving a voice terminal.
ADDING AN OUTSIDE LINE Your MERLIN Plus system may have up to eight outside lines. If you have
fewer than eight outside lines, and your system becomes so busy that people
in your office frequently must wait to make calls, you may want to add one or
more outside lines.
To add lines to your system, do as follows:
1 Have your local telephone company add the outside line(s) and network
interface jack(s) to those you already have in place.
2 Install a D2R line cord between the network interface and the next
available CO line jack using the procedures in "Prepare the Network
Interface" and "Connect the Outside Lines to the Control Unit," in "Step
1: Installing the Control Unit."
Contact your equipment supplier to order an additional line module if
needed. Insert an additional line module according to the instructions in
"Step 1: Installing the Control Unit," under "Insert the Modules."
3 Administer the line to the voice terminals assigned to it using the
instructions in Section 3, "Administering the System," in the System
Manual.
4 Label a new line button on each voice terminal where the new line
appears.
ADDING A VOICE
TERMINAL
You can easily add more voice terminals to your MERLIN Plus system as your
business and communications demands increase. Your system can
accommodate up to 20 voice terminals.
We recommend that you install wiring for future growth and flexibility during
the initial installation. To add a voice terminal to your MERLIN Plus system
when the wiring is present:
1 Connect the control unit to building wiring using a D8W cord. Instructions
for this procedure are in the section "Step 2: Wiring the Voice Terminals"
under "Voice Terminal Wiring Procedure."
2 Connect the voice terminal to the wall jack at the telephone location.
3 Administer the voice terminal using the procedures in Section 3,
"Administering the System," in the System Manual.
4 Program the voice terminal and label the buttons.
If you need an additional voice terminal module (station board), contact your
equipment supplier. Install the module as described in the section "Step 1:
Installing the Control Unit" under "Inserting a Voice Terminal Module."
42 Step 6: Changing the System
MOVING A VOICE
TERMINAL
You can easily move a voice terminal from one location to another within
your system without having to reprogram the voice terminal.
To move a voice terminal, see Figure 36 and do as follows:
1
Make sure the necessary wiring is in place or is available. (See "Step 2:
Wiring the Voice Terminals".)
2
Unplug the voice terminal at its old location, and plug it in at its new
location.
3
At the jack field, locate the cord labeled with the voice terminal’s intercom
number. Unplug it from the jack in the jack field corresponding to the
voice terminal’s old location and plug it into the jack in the jack field for
the voice terminal’s new location.
You do not have to change any labels in the system. Note also that you do
not have to reprogram the voice terminal, or even turn the control unit off.
Simply make note of the location change on the System Configuration Form.
FIGURE 36 Moving a voice terminal (jack field connection).
Step 6: Changing the System 43
Jack Field Wiring Supplement
A jack field is a group of jacks at the control unit location that serves as a
point of administration for telephone wiring. This section tells you how to
construct a jack field and how to extend the network interface provided by
the local telephone company to the jack field. Also, this section describes the
hardware designed specifically to ensure the following:
●
A neat, reliable, and durable wire installation
●
Easy rearrangement, changes, and upgrades to your MERLIN Plus System
●
Simple line swapping and maintenance strategy
A permanent wiring run between the voice terminal and the control unit
should be installed for each voice terminal. Also, we recommend that you
plan and install wiring for future voice terminal locations. To install voice
terminal wiring, follow the instructions in the procedure "Constructing and
Connecting the Jack Field."
If the local telephone company provided a network interface that is far
removed from the control unit location or an RJ21-type multiline network
interface, you should extend the network interface to the jack field. Follow
the instructions in the procedure "Extending the Network Interface to the Jack
Field." See Figure 37 for a typical complete wiring installation.
If all necessary wiring is in place, go back to the beginning of this manual and
read "Step 1: Installing the Control Unit," and follow the instructions.
FIGURE 37 A complete wiring installation.
44 Jack Field Wiring Supplement
CONSTRUCTING AND
CONNECTING THE JACK
FIELD
While you can connect your voice terminal locations to your control unit in
any of several different ways, the method described here greatly simplifies
certain aspects of system administration. This method calls for wiring runs
that terminate in modular wall jacks at the voice terminal locations and in
modular jacks in a jack field at the control unit location. Modular jumper
cords then connect the jacks in the jack field to the appropriate jacks in the
control unit.
Labels on the jack panel boxes, the jacks, and the modular jumper cords
make the jack field a key factor when programming the system and
maintaining those programs even as office assignments change.
The following example shows how a jack field makes the system easy to
maintain.
Moving Voice Terminals Attached to a Jack Field (Example)
Smith has intercom number 14 and is located in Room 104. Jones, with
intercom 18, is in Room 108. Smith and Jones have their voice terminals
programmed very differently from each other. A redefinition of assignments
within the business calls for Smith and Jones to trade offices.
At the jack field, following the labels on the components, you:
1 Unplug the jumper cord labeled 14 from the jack for Room 104.
2 Unplug the jumper cord 18 from the jack for Room 108.
3 Plug cord 14 into the jack for Room 108.
4 Plug cord 18 into the jack for Room 104.
Smith and Jones can now simply unplug their voice terminals from the wall
jacks at their old locations and plug them in at their new locations. They
keep their original intercom numbers, and they do not have to reprogram
their voice terminals.
You do not have to change any labels in the system. Simply make note on
the System Configuration Form of the new locations for Smith and Jones.
Jack Field Construction Recommendations
In order to construct a jack field and install building wiring, we recommend
the following:
●
Plan ahead.
Draw a floor plan that shows the routes of the wiring runs from your
control unit location to your voice terminal locations. Identify each run by
marking both the wall jack end for each voice terminal location and the
jack field end at the control unit location.
●
Use modular wall jacks at the voice terminal locations.
These are cutdown-to-modjack adapters with screw-on covers that
terminate the wiring runs to the voice terminal locations.
●
Use voice terminal wiring Z601A adapters at the jack field.
These are cutdown-to-modjack adapters that allow for connecting cable
without stripping wires.
●
Use jack panel boxes (apparatus boxes).
Each box holds six Z601A adapters.
Jack Field Wiring Supplement 45
●
Use spooled DIW cable.
●
Use labels.
You probably need most, if not all, of the following tools and equipment to
complete your wiring installation. Which items you need depends mostly on
the layout, dimensions, and structural particulars of your place of business.
●
Cable stripping tool
You need a tool for stripping the outside jacket from the cable without
damaging the wires.
●
Cable termination tool (punch down tool)
The connecting blocks on your adapters have caps that punch wires down
when the cap is pushed onto the block. For large installations we
recommend you use a punch down tool for punching down wires.
●
Diagonal cutters, wire snips, scissors
You may need scissors to trim wires after you punch them down onto the
blocks.
●
Plywood or similar board
If you are mounting the jack field on a brick, concrete, concrete block, or
hollow wall, you must first attach a board to the wall to provide a proper
mounting surface for the jack field. The size depends on the number of
wiring boxes and whether you are mounting the control unit on it as well.
●
Drill and bits
You may have to drill holes in some walls for some wiring runs. You may
also have to drill pilot holes for the screws used to attach the jack panel
boxes to the plywood board.
●
Cable ties and clips
You can use cable ties to bundle the cables and cords at the control unit
location to reduce cord clutter. You can use cable clips to attach the cable
to walls and baseboards along your wiring runs.
●
Stapler and staples
You may want to use wiring staples in place of cable clips at various
points on your wiring runs.
46 Jack Field Wiring Supplement
Constructing a Jack Field
The control unit must be placed within 5 feet of an ac outlet, within one cord
length (7, 14, 25 feet or up to a 400 feet of spooled DIW cable) of the network
interface, and 6 inches above a jack field. See Figure 38.
FIGURE 38 A well-positioned control unit.
At the location where you plan to install your control unit, do as follows:
1
Use the measurements in Figure 38 to mark positions on a wall (or other
mounting surface) for the control unit and the jack field. Also, check that
the distances from the control unit position to the ac outlet and the
network interface are within limits and that the control unit’s distance
from the floor allows for easy access.
2
Attach a label to the outside of the right door of each jack panel box.
Each label should identify the jacks in each box by wiring run number.
3
Attach the boxes to each other by meshing their tongues and grooves.
See Figure 39. Use only as many boxes as you need.
4
Use appropriate screws to attach the jack panel boxes to the mounting
surface.
Jack Field Wiring Supplement 47
5 Snap as many Z601A adapters as you need into the boxes, filling the
boxes from top to bottom.
—
If one of the jacks on the adapter has a black dot on it, make sure that
the jack with the black dot faces to the right.
—
If you are using cutdown-to-modjack adapters, make sure the jacks on
the adapters face to the right.
FIGURE 39 Attaching jack boxes to create a jack field.
Running the Cables
Follow these steps to run cables from the jack field to your voice terminal
locations (Figure 40).
CAUTION: Do not run cables inside or on top of air plenums or ducts,
along hot pipes, or across walkways. If you use staples, be careful
not to pierce the cable.
1 On your floor plan, assign a wiring run number (1, 2, 3, etc.) to each voice
terminal location. Rough in the cables between the jack field and voice
terminal locations, allowing enough room for slack. We recommend
marking each end with the wiring run number.
2 Write the voice terminal location on each wiring run label (for example,
❑ 1 Reception, ❑ 2 Sales, ❑ 3 Shop). Attach the label for the wiring runs
in consecutive order to the inside of the right door of the box labeled
❑ 16, beginning at the top. Label the remaining wiring runs and wiring
boxes in the same way until there is a label assigning a wiring run to each
jack in the jack field.
3 Insert the Z601A adapters into the apparatus boxes.
4 Plug the cables into the Z601A adapter next to the appropriate label for
the wiring run in the jack field.
Your jack field is now complete. Now install the wall jacks at the voice
terminal locations and make sure the wiring is neat and secure.
48 Jack Field Wiring Supplement
FIGURE 40 Running the cables.
Terminating the Wiring Runs in Modular Wall Jacks
There are many types of wall jacks used to terminate wiring runs. The type of
wiring (concealed, surface mount, wall-mounted telephone, group office, and
so forth) determines the type of wall jack to be used. Once you have
determined the location of the wall jack and have trimmed the cable (leaving
about 4 inches excess extending beyond the wall jack location), use the
instructions that came with the wall jack to complete the installation. Once
you’ve completed the wiring, attach a wiring run label for the voice terminal
location to the cover.
You should now have in place a properly installed and labeled jack field with
building wiring connecting your voice terminal locations to your control unit
location.
Jack Field Wiring Supplement 49
EXTENDING THE
NETWORK INTERFACE TO
THE JACK FIELD
If the local telephone company has provided an RJ21-type network interface,
you cannot connect your control unit to the network interface directly with
modular line cords. You must first extend the network interface to a group of
single-pair modular jacks mounted in a jack panel box in the jack field. Then
connect the control unit to your outside lines by plugging the modular line
cords into the jacks.
You need the following equipment (Figure 41) to extend an RJ21 network
interface to the jack field:
●
4-line adapter
This should be a cutdown-to-modjacks adapter that provides four singlepair jacks for the MERLIN Plus system control unit. One adapter
accommodates four outside lines.
●
Jack panel box (apparatus box)
The box should hold two 4-line adapters, and be identical to the jack panel
boxes with the voice terminal wiring labels in the jack field.
●
Single-ended 25-pair connector cable
This cable has to be long enough to reach from the network interface to
the jack field with some slack. Before you order this cable, check to see
whether the 50-pin connector at the network interface is male or female
and order a length of cable with a 50-pin connector of the opposite
gender.

Add Jacks to the Jack Field
To add jack boxes to the jack field, do the following:
1 Position the jack panel box so that the door with the handle is on the right
(as you face it), and attach it to the top box in the rightmost column of
boxes already in the jack field by meshing the tongues and grooves.
2 Use appropriate screws to attach the jack panel box to the mounting
surface that supports the jack field.
3 Pull the two plastic caps off the connecting block on the 4-line adapter,
and set the caps aside. You’ll need the caps again in a later step.
4 Snap the 4-line adapter into the jack panel box so that the jacks on the
adapter face to the right. If you have more than four outside lines,
remove the plastic caps from the other adapters and snap them into the
box in the same way.
Connect the Outside Lines to the Jack Field
To connect outside lines to the jack field, do the following:
1 Attach the connector on the 25-pair cable to the 50-pin connector at the
network interface.
2 Slit the jacket at the free end of the 25-pair cable, and cut away as much
of the jacket as necessary to allow the individual twisted pairs of colored
wires to reach the adapter(s) in the jack field.
3 Following the order and color code, place the colored wires in the grooves
on the block of the adapter. If you have more than four outside lines,
continue placing wires in grooves on the remaining adapters until you
have attached a pair of wires for each outside line.
4 Align the two plastic caps over the grooved block that holds the colored
wires on the adapter, and push the caps down until they snap into place.
If you have more than one adapter, do the same with each of them.
5 If the caps did not trim the wires when you snapped them down onto the
block, use a pair of scissors to trim the ends of the wire protruding from
the grooves. When you’re finished, none of the wires should extend far
enough beyond the plastic caps to touch each other.
Label the Jacks and the Jack Panel Box
You should have a label sheet that includes a telephone number directory,
jack-identifier label strips, and labels for the jack panel box and the line jacks.
To label the jacks in the box, do the following:
1 On the telephone number directory, fill in the telephone numbers for your
outside lines in the order in which they appear at the network interface or
on the list provided by the local telephone company.
2 Using the telephone number directory as a guide, label the jacks in the
jack panel box with the appropriate line jack labels.
3 Attach the label to the outside of the right door of the jack panel box.
4 Attach the long, narrow label showing jacks 1 through 8 to the inside of
the right door of the jack panel box.
Jack Field Wiring Supplement 51
5 Attach the telephone number directory to the inside of the jack panel
box’s left door, then close it.
You should now have a single-pair modular jack in the jack field for each
outside line.

Appendix A: System Connectivity Overview 55
Appendix B: Quick Reference Installation Requirements
Before you install the control unit, make sure that the installation area meets
the following requirements.
Environment
The environment for the control unit should be as follows:
●
Temperature: 40 to 104 °F (4 to 40 °C).
●
Humidity: not to exceed 80%.
●
Airborne Contamination: no exposure to corrosive gases, dust, chemicals, or
similar substances.
●
Ventilation: 1-inch space above and to the sides.
Wiring
A branch circuit is part of your building wiring and it includes all the wires,
receptacles, and switches controlled by one circuit breaker. For best results,
your MERLIN Plus system control unit should be plugged into a dedicated ac
branch circuit, that is, one that is not used by other appliances, such as
heaters, refrigerators, coffee makers, or microwave ovens than can generate
large transient voltage when they switch on and off.
The control unit should be located within:
●
A single cord length of the network interface, allowing for slack. You can
use up to 400 feet of DIW cable.
●
6 inches of the jack field that is centered beneath it.
●
5 feet of a grounded ac power source (not switch-controlled).
Also, a wiring run from the control unit to a voice terminal location cannot
exceed 1000 feet.
Caution Because lightning can induce high voltage on parallel runs of
wire that are near each other, do not route wiring from the control
unit to voice terminals along side CO line or ac building wires. If
voice terminal wiring must cross CO or ac wiring, cross them as near
to 90 degrees as possible.
Appendix B: Quick Reference Installation Requirements 57
AC Outlet Check
Check, or have checked by a qualified electrician, the outlet into which your
MERLIN Plus system control unit will be plugged. Check that the hot,
neutral, and ground wires are properly connected to the outlet by using an
IDEAL EZ Check®circuit tester (IDEAL Industries, Inc., model 61035) or
equivalent circuit tester.
The outlet can also be tested using a voltmeter by taking the measurements
shown in Figure 43.
FIGURE 43 Proper ac outlet measurements.
Mounting the Control Unit
The control unit is designed to be wall mounted 6 inches above the jack field
that is centered beneath it in two columns. See Figure 44. The slots at the
bottom of the control unit provide for simple, neat cord management.
58 Appendix B: Quick Reference Installation Requirements
FIGURE 44 Mounting the control unit on the wall.
Appendix B: Quick Reference Installation Requirements 59
CONNECTING THE

Then, refer to the System Configuration Form for each step in the following
procedures.
Voice Terminal Wiring
1
Label one end of each D8W cord for each intercom number.
2 Plug the unlabeled end of each voice terminal cord into its corresponding
voice terminal jack of the control unit.
3 Plug the labeled end of each voice terminal cord into the appropriately
labeled jack in the apparatus box of the jack field.
CO Line Wiring
1 Label each line cord running from the network interface to the control unit
(A through H).
2 Plug the unlabeled end of each line cord into the corresponding control
unit line jack.
3 Plug the labeled end of each line cord into the appropriately labeled jack
at the network interface.
For future reference, you may want to copy on a sheet of paper all of the
assignments that are labeled at the jack field.
60 Appendix B: Quick Reference Installation Requirements
Appendix C: Grounding Requirements
Proper grounding is fundamental for the MERLIN Plus Communications
System for protection against:
BEFORE YOU TURN THE
POWER ON
●
Lightning
●
Power surges
●
Power crosses on Central Office (CO) lines
●
Static discharge
Check the following considerations before you turn the power on for the
MERLIN Plus system.
Grounding Requirements
The control unit, the CO line protector, and the ac power service panel
should be as close to each other as possible. The adequacy of lightning
protection is a direct function of the distance between these pieces of
equipment.
Recognizing that equipment may be spread throughout a building, the
National Electric Code requires that the ground point for the CO line
protector must be bonded to the ac power ground. Proper grounding helps
prevent equipment damage due to lightning energy and/or power transients
conducted into the equipment via CO and ac power lines.
CO Line Protector Tests
The following tests verify proper grounding and bonding of the CO line
protector. These tests should be performed on every new installation. You
will need a volt-ohm-millimeter (VOM) capable of measuring 115 VAC.
CAUTION: This test procedure is for experienced technicians only— do not
perform this or any other electrical measurement unless you have the
proper training and experience. You may prefer that a properly
certified electrician perform this procedure.
WARNING: Hazardous voltages that may cause death or injury are
present during the following tests. Use great care when working with
ac power line voltages.
At the common equipment location:
1 Set the VOM to the scale on which you can read 115 VAC.
2 Measure ac outlet voltages as follows:
●
Hot to third wire (green wire) ground-should be about 115 VAC.
●
Neutral to third wire ground-should be less than 2.5 VAC.
NOTE: Any circuit tester, such as the IDEAL EZ CHECK circuit tester
(IDEAL Industries, INC., model 61035), may be used instead of the VOM
to determine whether or not an outlet is wired properly.
If the voltages measured are not as required in this step, inform the
customer that he must have his electrician install a dedicated, properly
grounded ac outlet.
Appendix C: Grounding Requirements 61
3
Visually verify that individual CO line protectors (carbon blocks, gas
tubes, etc) are in place.
4
Set the VOM to the scale on which you can read 1 VAC.
5
Measure voltage between CO protector ground lug and the third wire
ground of the nearest ac outlet on the circuit to be used. This voltage
should be less than 1 VAC.
WARNING: If the ac voltage reading is greater than 1 volt, do not measure
resistance in the following step as this measurement could damage the
VOM.
6
If the voltage reading of step 5 is proper, set the VOM to the scale on
which you can read resistance (ohms). Read the resistance between the
same two points as in step 5. If the bonding of protector grounds is
proper, the resistance should be less than 1 ohm.
7
If the resistance measurement is greater than 1 ohm, the ac outlet should
be checked for proper ground. This check can be made with an ohmmeter
as measured previously at the common equipment outlet.
●
Set the VOM to read ac voltage.
●
Measure the ac outlet voltages at the outlet nearest the CO line
protector as follows:
—
Hot to third wire ground– should be about 115 VOM.
—
Neutral to third wire ground– should be less than 2.5 VOM.
8
If the voltage readings do not measure the values suggested, then the ac
outlet is improperly wired. Notify the customer that an electrician should
repair the outlet.
9
If the outlet is properly grounded, and either the resistance or voltage
measurement of the protector is not of proper value, call the local
telephone company Customer Operations Group (COG). Give the COG
the business name and address and request that the local telephone
company properly ground and bond the CO line protector to the ac
power.
If access to an ac outlet is not feasible, the following test can be used to check
protector grounding. This test does not check for bonding of power and
telephone company protector grounds.
1
Connect the craft test set between the protector ground lug and the ring
side of the CO line.
2
If the dial tone is present, the protector is grounded.
3
If there is no dial tone, the protector is not grounded; notify the COG as
stated in step 9, above.
62 Appendix C: Grounding Requirements
EXTERNAL GROUNDING
If the CO line protector is properly grounded and bonded to ac power, most
lightning damage will be prevented.
NOTE: In areas of the country with frequent lightning activity or
severe ac transient voltage, additional protection is strongly
recommended.
Either of the following methods are acceptable:
●
Install an AT&T model 147A Protector for ac and CO lines. The
147A Protector has a capacity of four CO lines. If you have five to
eight telephone lines, also use a model 146A Protector, an add-on
unit for CO lines.
●
Install a Coupled Bonding Conductor (CBC) according to Figure
46.
●
As shown in Figure 46, the CBC runs from the primary protector
ground wire along the route of the inside wire, around the
network interface, and to the ground of the MERLIN Plus system.
The CBC can be implemented using the shield of a shielded cable
or a No. 14 or heavier gauge solid conductor tie-wrapped to the
communications wire.
In some states the Local Exchange Carrier (LCE), the serving
telephone company will provide upon request, a CBC connection at
the network interface. The equipment ground is then connected to the
LEC-supplied ground at the network interface.

Appendix E: Direct Connection Wiring
You can connect your voice terminal locations in either of two ways:
●
Through the building wiring to a jack field at the control unit location.
or
●
Directly, with modular voice terminal cords and, if necessary, modular
voice terminal extension cords.
Jack field wiring is the recommended method for almost all cases. This
method is illustrated and explained throughout this manual. However, if you
need to use direct connection wiring, use the following instructions.
DIRECT CONNECTION
Follow these steps to connect your voice terminal locations directly to the
control unit:
1
Make a note of each voice terminal location you have selected for each
intercom number. Keep in mind that you may have to change intercom
number assignments later.
2
Mark or label each cord at both ends with matching labels, beginning
with 10. See Figure 48.
If the distance between a voice terminal location and the control unit
requires the use of extension cords, mark or label each end of the wiring
run.
3
Attach one label near the plug that goes to the voice terminal and the
matching label near the plug that goes to the control unit.
4
Run the cords from the voice terminal locations to the control unit.
CAUTION: Do not run cords inside air plenums or ducts, along hot pipes,
or across walkways. If you use staples to attach cords to walls or
baseboards, be careful not to pierce the cords.
5
Thread each cord through the bottom channel of the control unit and up
to the voice terminal jack with the same number as the cord label and
plug it in. Refer to the label on the power module to check the number
assignments for the voice terminal jacks.
Appendix E: Direct Connection Wiring 69
FIGURE 48 Voice terminal wiring, direct connection.
70 Appendix E: Direct Connection Wiring
Any of the following voice terminal models will work at any voice terminal
location directly connected to your MERLIN Plus system:
●
5-Button voice terminal
●
BIS-10 voice terminal
●
10-Button voice terminal
●
10-Button voice terminal with Hands Free Answer on Intercom (HFAI)
●
BIS-22 voice terminal
●
BIS-34 voice terminal
●
BIS-34D voice terminal
●
34-Button (SP-34) voice terminal with speakerphone
●
34-Button (SP-34) voice terminal with speakerphone and display
●
34-Button deluxe voice terminal
●
34-Button voice terminal
Assign voice terminals to the locations based on the requirements of your
system and the needs of individual users. For example, an
attendant/receptionist at the intercom 10 location will require one of the 34button voice terminals or a BIS-22 voice terminal. For more information on
voice terminals and preparing them for the system connection, see "Step 3:
Connecting the Voice Terminals" under "Prepare the Voice Terminals."
Make sure the control unit power is off before plugging and unplugging
modular cords into the control unit. This prevents you from darnaging the
voice terminal module if you accidentally pull on a cord that is attached to it.
When the power is off, follow these steps to connect each voice terminal to
the system:
1 Place the voice terminal in its designated location.
2 Plug the voice terminal into the system.
If each connection only requires one modular cord, test the connection as
described in "Testing Each Voice Terminal," in "Step 3: Connecting the Voice
Terminals."
If each connection requires one or more extension cords, plug the loose end
of the voice terminal’s modular cord into the jack on the extension cord that
terminates the wiring run to the control unit. Then go back to "Testing Each
Voice Terminal" in "Step 3: Connecting the Voice Terminals."
Moving voice terminals directly connected to the control unit
To move a telephone with a direct connection to the control unit, do the
following:
1
Find the modular cord that terminates the wiring run from the new
location to the control unit.
2
Go to the control unit and locate the jack with the voice terminal’s
intercom number.
3
Turn the control unit off.
4
If another cord is in the jack with the voice terminal’s new location
number, unplug it. (Place it aside until you have use for it.)
Appendix E: Direct Connection Wiring 71
5 Plug the cord for the new location into the corresponding control unit jack
with the voice terminal’s intercom number.
6 Relabel the cord at the new location and again at the control unit end.
7 Turn the control unit back on.
8 Record the change.
You do not have to reprogram the voice terminal.
