ANALOG DEVICE WARNINGS
Federal Communication Commission (FCC) Part 68 and Administrative Council for Terminal Attachments (ACTA)
This device complies with Part 68 of the FCC rules and the requirements adopted by the ACTA. A label on the bottom panel of this equipment
contains, among other information, a product identifier in the format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. If requested, this number must be provided to the
telephone company.The REN is used to determine the number of devices that may be connected to a telephone line. Excessive RENs on the telephone line may result in the devices not ringing in response to an incoming call. In most, but not all areas, the sum of RENs should not exceed five
(5.0).To be certain of the number of devices that may be connected to a line, as determined by the total RENs, contact the local telephone company.The REN for this product is part of the product identifier that has the format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX.The digits represented by ## are the
REN without a decimal point. For the DSR 660, 01 means a REN of 0.1. Note: RENs are associated with loop-start and ground-start ports. Do
not use for E & M or digital ports.
This equipment uses the following USOC jack: RJ-11C. No modular plug is provided with this equipment.
A plug and jack used to connect the DSR 660 to the premises wiring and telephone network must comply with the applicable FCC Part 68 rules
and requirements adopted by ACTA. A compliant telephone cord is provided with this product. It is designed to be connected to a compatible
modular jack that is also compliant. See installation instruction for details.
If the DSR 660 causes harm to the telephone network, the telephone company will notify you in advance that temporary discontinuance of service may be required. But if advance notice isn’t practical, the telephone company will notify the customer as soon as possible. Also, you will be
advised of your right to file a complaint with the FCC if you believe it is necessary.The telephone company may make changes in its facilities,
equipment, operations or procedures that could affect the operation of the equipment. If this happens the telephone company will provide
advance notice in order for you to make necessary modifications to maintain uninterrupted service. If the equipment is causing harm to the telephone network, the telephone company may request that you disconnect the equipment until the problem is resolved.
This equipment is of a type that is not intended to be repaired by the user.
This equipment cannot be used on public coin phone service provided by the telephone company. Connection to party line service is subject to
state tariffs. Contact the state public utility commission, public service commission or corporation commission for information.
If your home has specially wired alarm equipment connected to the telephone line, ensure the installation of this DSR 660 does not disable your
alarm equipment. If you have questions about what will disable alarm equipment, consult your telephone company or a qualified installer.
We recommend the installation of an AC surge arrester in the AC outlet to which this equipment is connected.Telephone companies report that
electrical surges, typically lightning transients, are very destructive to customer terminal equipment connected to AC power sources.
For repair or warranty information, please call: 1-800-531-5000.
