Introduction
The SPIRIT Communications System, Model 308/616, consists of a CONTROLLER that
controls the system, TELEPHONE SETS, and some optional equipment. Outside telephone lines
from your local telephone company or from a PBX, or switchboard, system are connected to
the controller. The controller is connected to all the telephones in the system.
Customizing (Section 1)
The SPIRIT Communications System can be customized to fit the needs of your company.
This means that, as the administrator of the system, you will be able to change how some features
operate. The system can be used just as it is installed. You may, however, want to take
advantage of some of the customizing options. You can do as much or as little customizing as
you choose. Section 1 of the manual tells you how to customize the system.
Customization is easy to do. Think of your system as flexible and easy to change. As you use
the system you may think of other changes you want to make, so don’t be concerned that you
have to make all your customizing decisions when you start to use the system.
SpeedCall Numbers (Section 2)
SpeedCall, a number memory, is an important timesaver for your users. There are two kinds of
SpeedCall numbers: personal and system. Personal numbers are stored by the user and are
available only at the telephone where they are stored. System numbers are stored in the system
memory by you. This section tells you how to store system SpeedCall numbers.
Additional Information (Section 3)
This section includes additional information about features, optional equipment, and how to
make changes in your system.

SECTION 1 Customizing
Following is a list and brief description of the features you can change. There are two kinds
of features, SYSTEM FEATURES and TELEPHONE FEATURES. When you customize a system
feature, you have made a change in the whole system. In this manual, information about system
features is always printed with a grey background.
When you customize a telephone feature, the change is made for one telephone extension only.
In this manual, information about telephone features is always printed with a green background.
Description of Features that May be Customized
System Features (instructions for customizing begin on page 11)
■ AUTOMATIC PRIVACY— This feature prevents others from joining your call without your
permission. If privacy is On, other users in the system must be added to a call through conferencing or a special release of privacy. If privacy is Off, another user can join a telephone
conversation by pressing the line button that the call is on. (Possible settings are On and Off.
Installed setting is On.)
■ TOLL CALL CHECK— If you are in an area that requires a “l” before every toll call, leave this
at the preset value of 1 Required. If your local telephone service does not require a “l” before
dialing a toll call, change the setting to 1 Not Required. If you must dial an access digit in order
to make an outside call, you have PBX or Centrex lines. If you have PBX or Centrex lines, the
SPIRIT system will not check for a toll call until after the code is dialed. if the PBX/Centrex code
and lines are correctly customized. Calls will be checked only for telephones that have been
customized as Toll Restricted. (Possible settings are 1 Required and 1 Not Required. Installed
setting is 1 Required.)
■ HELD CALLREMINDER— The system can remind a user that a call is on hold. You can set the
number of minutes it will wait before providing the reminder. (Possible settings are Zero for no
reminder, One, Two, Three, or Four Minutes. Installed setting is One Minute.)
■ LINE TYPE— All incoming lines are either PBX/Centrex Lines or direct Outside Lines. If your
system is not at incoming-line capacity you have Unavailable Lines. (For example, if you have
two incoming lines on a system that has three incoming line jacks on the controller, line 3 is
Unavailable). Find out how many incoming lines you have, and customize Unavailable Lines as
such for proper operation of AUTOMATIC LINE SELECTION. (Possible settings are Unavailable
Line, Outside Line, and PBX/Centrex Line. Installed setting is Outside Line.)
■ PBX/CENTREX LINE ACCESS CODES— If you have PBX/Centrex lines, a code is necessary
to dial an outside call. By entering the code(s) required, you will allow the SPIRIT system to
check for toll calls and automatically insert pauses in SpeedCall numbers on PBX/Centrex lines.
(Up to four one- or two-digit codes may be entered. One code, the digit 9, is already installed for
your convenience, but may be removed or changed.) For further information see page 24.
■ EXTERNAL ALERT— If an optional external alerter (buzzer) is part of your system, you can
set when it will turn on for each line. (Possible settings are Never, Night Only, Day Only, and
Always. Installed setting is Night Only.) NOTE: Night Only and Day Only are determined by
whether Night Service is on or off (see User Manual).
■ DIAL TYPE— Set each line for the kind of service you have with your local telephone company.
(Possible settings are Touch Tone and Dial Pulse. Installed setting is Dial Pulse).

Administration Manual
Telephone Features (instructions for customizing begin on page 14)
Telephone customization is used to make different telephones in the system work in different
ways.
■ LINE USE PERMISSION. You can assign each line of each telephone one of the following
permissions.
●
No Permission. The telephone may not use that line at all except when a call on that line
is transferred to it.
●
Full Permission. The user may place and answer calls on that line. (Installed setting).
●
Answer Only Permission. The user may answer calls or retrieve held calls on that line.
■ AUTOMATIC LINE SELECTION. This feature provides the dial tone when you pick up the
receiver, without having to first select a line by pressing a line button. Customizing all lines
as Not Eligible will mean that the user must select a specific line every time a call is made.
A line that has Full Permission can be set as Eligible, which means it can be used by simply
picking up the receiver, or Not Eligible, which means the line button will have to be pressed
first to use that line. If lines that are not assigned to buttons on the telephone are set as Eligible
for AUTOMATIC LINE SELECTION, the setting is ignored. (Installed setting is Eligible.)
■ LINE RINGING OPTIONS. You can assign to any line (with Full or Answer Only Permission)
of any telephone one of the following ringing options for incoming calls.
No Ring. The line does not ring for incoming calls.
Normal Ring. The line rings normally. (Installed setting).
Abbreviated Ring. The line rings for 12 seconds only.
Delayed Ring. The line does not start ringing until 12 seconds after the call comes in.
■ NIGHT RINGING OPTIONS. You can assign to each telephone one of the following options.
The options you assign are in effect when Night Service (see User Manual) is on.
Normal Ring. When Night Service is on, the telephone will disregard customized LINE
RINGING OPTIONS and ring normally for all permitted lines.
Programmed Ring. The telephone will ring the same whether Night Service is on or off.
(Installed Setting).
■ OUTSIDE SERVICE. You can assign an outside service to each telephone in the system. The
outside service determines the types of outside calls that may be made from that telephone.
The three choices are the following:
Outward Restricted. No outside calls may be placed at that telephone except 911 and
unrestricted system SpeedCall numbers. — See page 22.
Unrestricted. Calls may be placed at that telephone with no restriction. (Installed setting).
Toll Restricted. No toll calls may be placed at that telephone except 911 and unrestricted
System SpeedCall numbers. — See page 22.
Administration Manual 5
Confirmation and Error Tones
Throughout this manual you are told that you will receive a "confirmation" tone after valid key
presses and an “error” tone when key presses are not valid. If you would like to hear the
confirmation and error tones before you start customizing the system, complete the following
exercise:
To hear a confirmation tone:
● Press INTERCOM.
● Lift handset (or press SPEAKER).
● Dial #2.
To hear an error tone:
● Press INTERCOM.
● Lift handset (or press SPEAKER).
● Dial * 0.
● Press MEMORY.
● Dial 28.
How to Use the System-Planner and the Customization Chart
A System Planner is provided on page 8 to guide you in planning how you will customize your
system. Record your decisions on the planner. You may want to use pencil so that you can
make changes in the future. Sample planners are illustrated on pages 18-21, along with the
reasons for the customizing decisions for two fictitious companies. If you are undecided
about what customizing decisions you want to make for your system, reading those examples
may be helpful.
When the System Planner is complete you can start customizing your system. The Customization
Chart on page 9 may be all you will need to complete the customization of your system.
If you wish more detailed instructions, however, read pages 10 through 17.
If you use the Customization Chart on page 9, remember to follow the dotted line path. As
on the System Planner, grey-shaded areas are the system features and green-shaded areas are
the telephone features.

How to Customize
Getting Started
When you have finished your customizing plans you are ready to actually customize the system.
You must do all customizing from telephone set 10, which may be either a 6-button or a
24-button set. For some customization procedures, all telephone sets in the system must be idle,
so you will want to choose a time when people are not using the telephones. For telephone
customization, the telephone being customized must be idle.
If you wish, you can plan future needs while you customize. If your system is not at capacity
(for instance, you have four lines and ten telephones in your SPIRIT system now, but plan to
expand to six lines and sixteen telephones in the future) you may customize the unequipped
lines and extensions now. For proper operation of AUTOMATIC LINE SELECTION, you
should customize LINE TYPE as Unavailable for the unequipped lines.
Following are step-by-step instructions for customizing.
STEP 1 SET CONTROLLER ADMINISTRATION SWITCH TO “ON”
See the picture of the controller on page 3.
STEP 2 PRESS ONE OF THE INTERCOM BUTTONS ON TELEPHONE SET 10
Intercom button press times out after five seconds.
STEP 3 PRESS SPEAKER (or lift the receiver)
You will hear a dial tone.
STEP 4 DIAL * 0 (zero)
You will hear a confirmation tone. If you do not hear the confirmation tone, check the
administration switch on the controller.
STEP 5 INSTALL ADMINISTRATION OVERLAY ON TELEPHONE SET 10
(This step is not necessary if you are going to reset features back to the installed setting or enter
SpeedCall numbers and do no other customization.) Install the administration overlay provided
in the pocket on the back cover of this manual. The ENTER ADMIN light will be on to show
that the system is ready for administration. No calls may come in to or go out from telephone
set 10 during customization.
STEP 6 CHOOSE TYPE OF CUSTOMIZATION
The chart on page 9 shows four customizing choices at the top. The chart also shows what
customizable features are reached through each choice. Using the chart as a guide, make
the appropriate choice.
●
Dial 0 to reset the system. All sets except set 10 must be idle. If a telephone set other
than set 10 is in use, you will hear a busy tone and you will not be able to reset the system.
●
Dial 1 to customize the system.
●
Dial 2 to customize the telephones.
●
Dial 3 to enter or erase numbers in the system SpeedCall memory.
STEP 7 COMPLETE CUSTOMIZATION
Following the instructions on pages 12-17, complete the customization type chosen in STEP 6.
10
Administration Manual
STEP 8 CONTINUE CUSTOMIZATION
If you wish to continue with another customization type, press the ENTER ADMIN button
and repeat steps 6 and 7. For example, if you complete the desired customization under System
Customization and want to continue with Telephone Customization, press the ENTER ADMIN
button and repeat steps 6 and 7.
STEP 9 EXIT CUSTOMIZATION
When customization is complete, replace the receiver (or press SPEAKER). Return the
administration switch on the controller to the OFF position to guard against accidental
administration. Also, unless the administration switch is set to OFF you will not be able
to program personal SpeedCall numbers for set 10. Remove the administration overlay and
replace in the pocket on the back cover of this manual.
System Reset
CAUTION: Use of reset eliminates all customization.
If you dialed 0 in STEP 6, and if all telephone sets except set 10 are idle, you can reset the
system to the installed settings given on pages 4 and 5. Enter the system reset code 09009. If all
telephones are not idle, you will hear the busy signal. If you make a mistake you will hear the
error tone, and you must exit reset to try again. If you enter the reset code successfully you
will hear the confirmation tone and system and telephone features will be returned to installed
settings. SpeedCall numbers will not be affected.
To exit you may replace the receiver or press SPEAKER, or, if you want to continue customizing
features, press the ENTER ADMIN button to reenter administration at STEP 6.
Customizing the System
If you dialed 1 in STEP 6 you began customizing the system. The following features may be
programmed in any order, and you may exit customizing after changing any feature, leaving
unchanged features at previously-set choices. You may also use system customization
to check the setting of a feature. You do not have to make changes once you have begun to
customize.
Any of the procedures may be exited by one of the following actions:
●
pressing the FEATURE button to customize another feature
●
pressing the ENTER ADMIN button to go back to STEP 6
●
hanging up the receiver or pressing SPEAKER to exit customization
Valid digits will be followed by a confirmation tone and the indicator lights will reflect the
new settings. Customization automatically exits that feature. Invalid digits will be followed
by the error tone and customization continues in that feature until a valid choice is entered or
you exit the feature.
When you are customizing features for which the setting can be changed for each incoming
line in the system, you do not have to press the FEATURE button for each line. Press all the
line buttons for which you want the same setting.
EXAMPLE: Your system has the capacity for six incoming lines. Lines 1 and 2 are PBX
lines. Lines 3 and 4 are outside lines. Lines 5 and 6 are not used (unavailable).
PROCEDURE: Press FEATURE, then dial 4. Press line buttons 1 and 2. Dial 3. Press
line buttons 5 and 6. Dial 1 (You do not have to customize lines 3 and 4 because the
installed setting is outside line.)
The indicator light of a selected line button will flash rapidly. If you have selected a line and then
change your mind and do not want to select that line, simply press the line button again.

Customizing Each Telephone
If you dialed 2 in STEP 6 on page 10, you began Telephone Customization (see the chart
on page 9). All these features are customized on a set-by-set basis, meaning you must enter
the telephone set number before customizing. The changes you make on set 12, for example,
will not be made on set 14, or any other, unless you specifically copy a customizing set-up
from one telephone set to another. Making changes via Telephone Customization is not always
necessary for all telephone sets. You may, for example, want to leave all the telephones at the
installed setting for a feature except one set.
EXAMPLE: All of the telephone sets except set 16 are used by employees who should
not be restricted. Set 16, however, is in the lobby, and is used by company visitors.
You would want to set the outside service on the lobby telephone to Toll Restricted,
leaving the other telephones Unrestricted.
Any of the procedures may be exited by one of the following actions:
● pressing the FEATURE button to customize another feature
● pressing the STATION button to customize another telephone set
● pressing the ENTER ADMIN button to go back to STEP 6 on page 10
● pressing the COPY TO button to copy the customization on this telephone to another telephone
hanging up the receiver (or pressing SPEAKER) to exit customization.
Valid digits will be followed by a confirmation tone and the indicator lights will reflect the new
settings. This completes the customization of that feature. Invalid digits will be followed by an
error tone. You would then enter a valid digit or exit the feature.
When you are customizing features for which the setting can be changed for each incoming line
in the system, you do not have to press the FEATURE button for each line. Press all the line
buttons for which you want the same setting. For example, if you are customizing “LINE USE
PERMISSION” and you wish to make lines 4,5 and 6 No Permission, you would press
FEATURE, dial 1, press line buttons 4,5 and 6, and dial 1.
The indicator light of a selected line button will flash rapidly to let you know which line you
are currently customizing. If you have pressed a line button and then change your mind and do
not want to select that line, simply press the line button again.
●
To customize a telephone:
Press STATION and dial the intercom extension number, or, if you are using a 24-button
telephone, just press the auto-dial button for that extension.
If the telephone is busy you will hear a busy signal and you must press STATION again or
exit to wait until the telephone is not busy before you can customize it. You can go ahead and
choose another telephone extension to customize, or you may choose to leave telephone
customization.
COPY TO is a useful procedure if you plan identical customizing for more than one set. If you
wish to copy the telephone customization you have completed for a telephone to another
telephone, use the COPY TO feature (see page 17). If you wish to copy the telephone customization to all the other telephones in the system, use the COPY TO ALL feature (see page 17).

† Installed Setting
Examples Of Systems
Planning the customizing of your communications system requires considering the needs of
your company. Since each company is unique, two business profiles are provided to show you
how these systems may be customized. The system planners are shown for each business to
help give you a better understanding of how to complete your own system planner.
COMPANY 1
CARPENTER, WATKINS, and SEPULVEDA, Attorneys at Law
Company 1 is a law firm with a receptionist/secretary who answers all calls. There are three
incoming lines and six telephone sets. (They have a SPIRIT system with a capacity of three
incoming lines and eight telephone sets.) Three of the telephone sets, numbers 13, 14, and 15
are on the desks of the three partners of the firm. Telephone set 10 is used by the
receptionist/secretary. Telephone set 11 is on the desk of the paralegal assistant. Telephone
set 12 is in the lobby.
The following customizing decisions may be made for this company:
Automatic Privacy —On (installed setting, no customizing required)
Toll Call Check—dialing 1 is required (installed setting, no customizing required)
Held Call Reminder— one minute (installed setting, no customizing required)
Line Type—all lines are available as outside lines (installed setting, no customizing required)
PBX/Centrex Line Access Codes —not a PBX or Centrex line, so a code is not applicable
External Alert —The system does not have the optional external alerter, so this may be left
at the installed setting.
Dial Type—local service is touch tone. All lines should be customized touch tone.
Line Use Permission — all telephones have full use of all lines (installed setting, no customizing
required)
Automatic Line Selection— all lines for all telephones available for automatic line selection
(installed setting, no customizing required)
Line Ringing Options— All lines on set 10 are left at normal ringing, which is the installed
setting. All lines on sets 11, 13, 14, and 15 are customized for delayed ringing, giving the
receptionist/secretary the chance to answer the line first. Telephone set 12, which is in the
lobby and offered as a convenience for visitors, is customized for no ringing on all lines.
Night Ringing — normal ringing in night operation for all accessible lines on all telephones.
This way, if the receptionist/secretary is not there, anyone at any telephone in the system will
be alerted immediately to an incoming call.
Outside Service— all telephone sets except set 12 are unrestricted, which is the installed
setting. Set 12, which is accessible to visitors, is customized toll restricted.

Night Ringing—Telephones ring according to programmed LINE RINGING OPTIONS whether
Night Service is on or off. (Installed setting, no customizing required)
Outside Service—Unrestricted, except telephone set 20, which is customized Toll Restricted
because it is in the lobby and accessible to visitors.
Administration Manual 21
SECTION 2 SpeedCall
The SpeedCall feature is an important time saver for users. SpeedCall numbers are dialed by
using a two-digit code. There are two kinds of SpeedCall numbers: personal and system.
Personal SpeedCall numbers are entered by the users of the sets. These numbers are available
only at the telephone where they are stored. Each user may store 16 personal SpeedCall numbers.
System SpeedCall numbers are stored in the system memory and are for the use of all the
users in the system. The system can store 70 system SpeedCall numbers; of these 70, 50 are
unrestricted and 20 are restricted (see below).
Restricted and Unrestricted SpeedCall Numbers
Unrestricted SpeedCall numbers (including toll numbers) may be called by using a two-digit
code from any telephone in the system that has full permission to an outside line, including
telephones restricted from making outside calls or toll calls. For this reason, emergency
numbers such as FIRE, POLICE, and AMBULANCE, should be entered as unrestricted numbers.
Unrestricted numbers are stored with codes 30-79.
The Outside Service restrictions (see page 16) you may have assigned to each telephone apply to
numbers stored with codes 80-99, which are restricted SpeedCall numbers. The number 911
can be dialed from any telephone set that has at least one line with full line use permission
and does not require entering as a SpeedCall number.
In summary,
Unrestricted SpeedCall numbers:
●
may be called from any telephone regardless of OUTSIDE SERVICE customization.
Restricted SpeedCall numbers:
●
may be called from telephones with Unrestricted OUTSIDE SERVICE.
●
may be called from telephones with Toll Restricted OUTSIDE SERVICE, if the numbers are local.
●
may not be called from telephones with Outward Restricted OUTSIDE SERVICE.
SpeedCall Directories
Be sure you keep an accurate directory of the numbers you have stored in the system SpeedCall
memory. Since numbers may be erased and added often, it’s a good idea to make a simple
directory that can be copied as often as necessary. Photocopy the sample System SpeedCall
Directory on page 28.
22 Administration Manual
Storing System SpeedCall Numbers
STEP 1 SET ADMINISTRATION SWITCH TO “ON”
Set the system administration switch on the controller to ON (see the drawing on page 3.)
STEP 2 PRESS INTERCOM BUTTON. PRESS SPEAKER
Working at telephone set 10, press an INTERCOM button that is not busy. Lift the receiver
(or press SPEAKER). INTERCOM times out after five seconds. You must lift the receiver or
press SPEAKER within those five seconds or start the procedure over again at STEP 2.
STEP 3 ENTER CUSTOMIZATION
Dial * 0 (zero)
STEP 4 CHOOSE SYSTEM SPEEDCALL
Dial 3
STEP 5 DIAL NUMBER
Dial a number you wish to store in the system SpeedCall memory. A total of 16 digits, including
pauses and one flash, may be stored as one number.
NOTE: Press the HOLD/PAUSE button to enter a 1½ second pause in the number (i.e., to wait for
a dial tone or access tone). If your system is part of a PBX/Centrex system you may store the outside
access code as part of the number. If the line is customized as a PBX/Centrex line and the access
code is entered in system customization, the system will automatically insert a pause after the code
when you use your SpeedCall numbers.
STEP 6 PRESS MEMORY
STEP 7 ENTER TWO-DIGIT CODE
Enter the two-digit code you wish to assign to the number you have stored. Remember, code
numbers 30 through 79 are for unrestricted numbers that can be dialed by any user in your
system, regardless of any outside service restrictions that may be customized on any one
telephone set. Code numbers 80 through 99 are restricted according to the outside service you
customize for each telephone (see Outside Service, page 16).
If you use a code that is already in use for another number, the new number will be
stored over the old number and the old number will be lost. If you enter an invalid code
(a code other that 30-99) you will hear the error tone, which is a series of alternating high
and low beeps. This means you will have to start over again at STEP 5, dialing the telephone
number. When you have successfully stored a number in the system SpeedCall memory you
will hear a confirmation tone (three short beeps).
When you hear the confirmation tone you may continue to store numbers in the system
SpeedCall memory by going back to STEP 5 and dialing a new number. If you are finished
storing numbers and wish to exit the procedure, hang up the receiver (or press SPEAKER
if you were using the speakerphone) and return the administration switch to OFF.
Erasing a Number from the System SpeedCall Memory
You may enter a new number over an old number instead of erasing the old number. If you
wish to simply erase a number, follow steps 1 through 4 of the above procedure. At STEP 5,
instead of entering a number, press the MEMORY button. Enter the code of the number you want
to erase. A confirmation tone indicates your success. You may continue erasing, or you may
enter a new number by going back to STEP 5 of the procedure. If you wish to exit the
procedure, hang up the receiver (or press SPEAKER if you were using the speakerphone) and
return the administration switch to OFF.
Administration Manual 23
SECTION 3 Additional Information
The System Attendant
Many businesses have a system attendant or receptionist, a person who answers most calls
and transfers them to other people in the company. If your business has an attendant, you’ll
probably want to make some customizing changes in your system.
Ringing Options
If the attendant answers most of the calls that come into the office, you may want to
customize the lines on other telephone sets to no ring or delayed ring.
Some businesses have one attendant and no backup, leaving no one to answer calls if the
attendant is absent. If this is your situation, you may want to set the lines on all the phones
in the office to delayed ring so that when the attendant is not available, calls will automatically ring at the other phones after twelve seconds.
If there is someone to cover for the attendant, you may choose to customize the line on the
backup person’s phone for delayed ring and all other phones for no ring.
The customizing procedure is so simple you can change call coverage and ringing patterns on an
as-needed basis. For example, if the usual backup person is out of the office, it’s easy to reset
the lines on someone else’s telephone set to delayed ring. In other words, think of your
system customizing as flexible and easily changed.
System Changes
From time to time you will want to make changes, either in the system or on individual
lines or sets. To make changes simply follow the instructions for customizing features.
When you customize a telephone from telephone set 10, you are not actually customizing the
telephone, but the location where the telephone line is plugged in at the controller. Therefore,
if you want a telephone set to retain previous customization, be sure the cord or wiring run for
that telephone is plugged into the controller in the same jack as before.
For example, if Linda, whose intercom extension number is 14, and Bob, whose intercom
extension number is 15, exchange offices, you may leave the telephone sets in the original
locations but plug station cord 14 into controller jack 15 and station cord 15 into controller jack
14. Relabel the cords to identify the new positions. Linda is still intercom extension number 14
and Bob is still intercom extension number 15, and they retain their individual customization
and personal SpeedCall memories.
Using With a PBX/Centrex System
Throughout the Administration Manual and the User Manual you are directed to dial an
“intercom extension” number. This number is the two-digit telephone set identification number,
between 10 and 25, not a PBX or Centrex extension number. The intercom extension number refers
to the controller jack in which the telephone set line cord or wiring run is plugged. That information should be part of the system directory that was completed during installation of the system.
If your system requires a PBX/Centrex line access code (dialing a digit to get a line when
placing an outside call), you should customize that code through the system customization
process (see page 13). If the line access code is customized, the system will automatically enter a
pause to wait for a dial tone after the code is dialed as part of a SpeedCall number. If the code
is not customized, the system may consider the code part of the telephone number and not be
able to check the digits for toll call restrictions.
24 Administration Manual
LINE AUX JACKS (Dedicated Lines and Power Failures)
Dedicated Lines
Two jacks on the 308 controller, and another on the 616 expansion unit, are labeled LINE AUX.
The jacks provide standard telephone service separate from SPIRIT system features, and are
useful as dedicated lines for computer modem(s) and in power failure situations. When LINE
AUX jack 1 on the 308 is actually being used (that is, the device is “off hook” and using the
line) incoming line 1 will be unavailable for use by the SPIRIT system. LINE AUX jack 2
on the 308 controller uses line 2, and the single LINE AUX jack on the 616 expansion unit uses
line 4. The devices may be left plugged in the LINE AUX jacks. As long as they are not in use
they will not interfere with regular use of the lines.
Power Failures
The LINE AUX jacks may be used with a standard single-line telephone during a power failure
when the rest of the SPIRIT system cannot be used. Simply plug one end of a telephone line
cord into one of the LINE AUX jacks and the other end into a standard single-line telephone.
In the event of a long power failure, the administration memory may be lost and all
administered features revert to the installed setting.
Optional Accessories
Optional equipment connectors include modular telephone jacks for an external alert buzzer and
a public address system. Follow the manufacturer’s installation instructions provided with the
optional equipment. The music-on-hold connector requires an RCA-type phono plug from
the music source.
NOTE: Users of equipment that rebroadcasts copyrighted music or other material may be
required to obtain a license from a third party such as ASCAP or BMI.
Special Feature Information
Busy Lamp Field (24-button sets only)
The indicator lights next to the auto-dial buttons of a 24-button telephone set show what is
happening on each telephone in the system. If the light is OFF the telephone is idle. If the light is
ON, the telephone is busy. If the light is FLASHING rapidly, the telephone is the source of an
incoming intercom call to your telephone, is returning a transferred call to your telephone,
or is manually signaling your telephone. If the light is FLASHING slowly, the telephone is
receiving an intercom call that may be answered by you using the call pickup procedure.
The indicator lights for the programmable buttons (buttons 26 and 27) programmed for a
feature will show ON when that feature is used. For instance, the indicator lights for all
programmable buttons on a system that have been programmed for loudspeaker paging will be
ON when the loudspeaker paging feature is used.
Call Pickup
The User Manual gives instructions for picking up a call ringing at another intercom extension.
You will hear a busy signal if you try to pick up a call on a line for which your intercom
extension does not have full permission.
Administration Manual 25
Conference
A maximum of four telephones may be conference; only three of these may be SPIRIT
telephones. The total of four must include any telephones bridged onto the conference.
NOTE: When two or more outside lines are conference the quality of transmission and audio
reception may be reduced.
The originator of a conference call is the person who initiates the conference. If the originator
hangs up, the call is disconnected. Only the originator can add or drop other people. If one of
the other telephones in a conference call is an intercom extension, the originator can leave a
conference call without disconnecting the other people simply by placing it on hold. The
originator can then hang up and the other people can continue the call. However, if none of the
telephones except the originator’s is an intercom extension and the outside callers are placed on
hold, they will not hear each other. In either case, the originator is still considered one of the
four participants on the call, so if someone other than a conference participant sets up the
conference, a total of three people can be conference. The call will disconnect when all the
other parties hang up. If your system has a System-Attendant who will be responsible for
originating conference calls, be sure this procedure is explained carefully.
A conference call on hold is actually a call without an originator, so if someone picks up a line
where a conference call is on hold, that person becomes temporary custodian of the call and will
disconnect the conference call by hanging up.
When retrieving a held call, it is important that the line or INTERCOM button that is pressed
is flashing on I HOLD pattern; pressing a button with a THEY HOLD pattern can result in
hanging upon all of the other parties.
Placing and retrieving conference calls on hold can require special treatment, particularly if
outside calls appearing on an INTERCOM button are involved. You may want to practice
by placing a few conference calls involving combinations of lines and stations so that you can
set up written guidelines for conferencing.
Intercom Indicator Lights
The indicator lights next to the INTERCOM buttons show what is happening on intercom calls
at that telephone set. I USE flashes a long ON and short OFF. I HOLD flashes a short ON
and long OFF. THEY HOLD flashes two shorts ON and one long OFF. Incoming alert flashes
a short ON and short OFF. If the light is OFF, that INTERCOM button is idle.
Paging to All Intercom Extensions
When a telephone set is involved in a page to all intercom extensions the user will not hear a
ring if a call comes in.
Intercom Extension List and System SpeedCall Directory
For your convenience the next two pages provide a place to record your company Intercom
