Introduction
Overview
The Remote Access Module (IND-RAM4) kit is used to provide remote
maintenance access to INDeX telephone systems. This guide covers
installation and use with the INDeX telephone system
The IND-RAM4 is factory pre-set to match the default baud rate of the
INDeX system (currently 9600 bps).

Security
The IND-RAM4 is a useful tool. It allows remote diagnostics of faults and
often remote correction without the need for a site visit.
However it also allows a direct route into system programming and
administration that could be abused. You must take measures to guard
this route.
You must:
– Keep the direct telephone number of the IND-RAM4 links secure.
This also applies to the INDeX system passwords.
– Keep the INDeX system passwords secure.

Installation
1. Location Requirements
The Remote Access Module (IND-RAM4) is designed for wall mounting
near the INDeX cabinet containing the CPU Cassette. It requires the
following:
1. A switched and fused mains power socket.
2. A standard direct exchange line master socket
(this allows the IND-RAM4 to operate independent of the INDeX
system's state).
3. A position which leaves the LED indicator lights on the module's
front panel clearly visible.
Rack Systems
Some INDeX systems are installed in a rack.
In this case, the IND-RAM4 can be placed in the base of the rack
(directly below the Control Cabinet).

3. Attaching the Mounting Brackets
1. Looking at the base of the IND-RAM4 unit, there are four fixing
screws (beneath the four stick-on pads).
Note: Do not remove all of these screws at the same time.
2. Remove two of the pads on one side only, undo and remove the
fixing screws. Use two of the longer supplied screws to attach one of
the mounting brackets (such that the slotted central wall fixing holes
are seen from outside the unit); see the illustration on page 5.

4. Mounting the Remote Access Module 4
1. Hold the IND-RAM4 unit against the wall in its intended position.
Using the mounting brackets as a template, mark the position of the
fixing hole on each side. These are approximately 145mm apart
horizontally.
2. Drill and insert two wall plugs and then mount the IND-RAM4 unit on
the wall.
3. Connect the serial cable (CAB-RAM) from the units SERIAL
INTERFACE (DTE) socket (25-pin D-type) to one of the
INDeX cabinet's serial ports (9-pin D-types).
– To use the modem link for remote database up and downloads,
you must connect the serial cable to the first INDeX serial port.
4. Connect the line lead from the unit's LINE socket to the direct
exchange line master socket.
– A dedicated direct exchange line must be used to allow the unit
to operate independent of the INDeX system.
5. Plug the output lead of the Plug Top 9V Power Supply into the
female socket and then connect the plug top into a suitable mains
power outlet. When power is applied, press the Power Switch on the
front of the unit and the MR light on the unit will illuminate.
