Welcome
Congratulations and thank you for using a Comdial telephone! Your digital
speakerphone is supported by a communication system with hundreds of built-in,
standard features. This manual serves as a helpful guide for using these various
functions.
The sections in this introductory chapter help you initially set up your
speakerphone and become familiar with the controls and indicators. The
remaining sections are titled as follows:

Positioning Your Speakerphone
You should adjust the position of the speakerphone on your desk or table to suit
your individual needs and maximize the performance of the sound activated
features. When using your speakerphone, the microphone and loudspeaker are
farther from you than when you use a handset. Some positioning tips to consider
include:
•
•
•
For the microphone to best detect your voice, speak within three feet of it
and face the speakerphone.
Background noise may prevent the sound-activated switches from operating properly. Avoid placing the speakerphone where it will detect sounds
from typewriters, keyboards, printers, paging systems, or other equipment.
Place the telephone on a hard surface and away from table edges. Do not
place the telephone in corners or enclosures. Do not let obstructions come
between you and the microphone.
Your telephone has an adjustable pedestal to allow you to select the most
comfortable viewing angle. When you receive the telephone, the pedestal is in its
lowest position—flush against the pedestal.
• To adjust the pedestal,
1. GRASP the rear of the pedestal base
firmly with one hand AND LIFT the
rear portion of the telephone upward
with your other hand.
2. LIFT the telephone upward with one
hand AND RAISE the telephone
supporting arms upward with your other
hand. (Notice there are three sets of
notches under the telephone corresponding to the three positions
available.)

Second Notch
Supporting Arm
Third Notch

Pedestal Base
Adjusting The Pedestal
3. When the telephone is at the desired
height, SELECT the closest pair of
notches AND INSERT the supporting arms in the notches.
PRESS DOWN slightly on the telephone until you feel the
supporting arms snap into place.
Also remember, as with any piece of electronic equipment, your telephone may
be damaged by contact with liquids. Please try to place the telephone in an area
that is free from the danger of spills.

Understanding The Large Screen Display
Your speakerphone has a large screen display consisting of six lines of 24
possible character positions per line. This provides you with much more system
information than can be presented on two-line displays. This large display allows
you many programming options as well as quick and easy selection of the many
features available on your speakerphone. Your speakerphone has 13 interactive
buttons for selecting or programming features.
When your speakerphone is idle, the first line in your
display shows the day, date and time while the sixth line
displays the word OPTIONS. If your system is using the
voice mail option, this is also indicated in the sixth line by
the word VMAIL. If your voice mail has four messages
for you, for example, the VMAIL display is replaced by
4MSG.
Lines two through four are used on the idle display to
indicate features that may be active (flashing), enabled or
set.

Answering Intercom Calls
An intercom call is one that is made from one system telephone to another. Your
station receives intercom calls in one of two ways depending upon system
programming. In a voice-first setting, a short tone is followed by the caller’s
voice heard on the speaker. With a tone-first setting, the telephone rings in a
distinctive pattern and the user of the receiving station must take action to
answer.
As with an outside call, your LCD screen displays the line number of the
incoming call (e.g., L123 ) and any caller ID information that the ringing line is
programmed to receive.
• When you hear an intercom tone followed by a caller’s
voice,
1. SPEAK toward the telephone to answer, OR LIFT handset if
privacy is desired.
• When you hear intercom ringing (two
short bursts),
1. PRESS INTERCOM OR SELECT Answer .
2. SPEAK toward telephone OR LIFT handset
if privacy is desired.
3. SELECT Do Not Disturb if you do not wish
to answer the call at this time.

Answering Calls
Caller ID (Automatic Number Identification)
When installed by system programming, the Caller ID feature allows you to view
incoming call numbers before you answer them. Incoming call numbers flash in
the left half of the LCD. If the name of the calling party is available it will
display in the second half on the right side of the LCD. If you answer the call, the
number appears steady in the left half of the LCD.
The system also stores numbers that ring on your line but receive no answer. The
system indicates that it has stored ring-no answer numbers by causing the
programmed Caller-ID (CID) light on your telephone to flash. Pressing the CID
button allows you to view the stored numbers one at a time. Pressing the
programmed SAVED NUMBER REDIAL button causes the system to dial the
displayed number. If the call has been returned by someone else, selecting the T
key reveals who returned the call. Everyone sharing your line can scroll through
the stored numbers and choose which calls to return.
• To scroll through ring-no answer numbers stored on your
system (CID light is flashing),
1. SELECT the CID button on your telephone. Your LCD will
display the calling number, date, and time the call came in. The
most recent call appears first in the list.
2. SELECT the CID button each time you wish to display the next
most recent ring-no answer call to your line.
3. To dial one of the numbers in the redial queue, SELECT the
SAVED NUMBER REDIAL button. The system will automatically dial the number.
Depending on your system programming, when a call is returned it might remain
in the ring-no answer queue or the system might delete it from the ring-no answer
queue. Your system installer can tell you how the feature is programmed. If the
system is programmed to leave a returned number in the redial queue, the display
will show a “S” next to numbers that have been returned.
• To determine who viewed the number and returned the call,

Automatic Dialing
This feature provides one- or two-button speed dialing using programmable
buttons at which you have previously stored numbers. Two levels of number
storage are available at each storage location, and you can use one or both levels
as needed. Further, since you usually store a line choice as part of a speed dial
number, line selection is automatic with speed dialing.
There are two types of speed dial numbers: (1) numbers that you store for your
own use (personal speed dial numbers), and (2) numbers that the system
attendant stores for everyone’s use (system speed dial numbers).
• To automatically dial a number stored at one of the
programmable buttons on your station, choose one of the
following:
1. PRESS programmed speed dial button, OR PRESS SHIFT AND
programmed speed dial button.
• To speed dial a personal speed dial number,
1. While on hook, DIAL speed dial number on dial pad ( 0 to 9).
• To speed dial a system speed dial number,
1. While on hook, DIAL * AND system speed dial number.
NOTE:
If you are already on a line, you must press SHIFT before dialing the
personal or system speed dial numbers that are stored at the dial pad. Also,
if a speed dial’s preselected line is in use, the speed dial will not engage.
NOTE:
On some systems, due to programming action, the available system
speed dial codes are S100 - S299 and S100 - S599.

Speakerphone Characteristics
Speakerphone Characteristics
When using your speakerphone, the microphone and loudspeaker are farther
away from you than when you use a handset. Both the signal from the
loudspeaker and the signal to the microphone must be strengthened. When
microphones and loudspeakers are close together (such as in a speakerphone),
additional amplification typically generates a ringing sound (public address
systems do this if the volume is too high or the microphone is too close to a
loudspeaker).
NOTE:
The 8412F-** speakerphone can function in the full-duplex or
half-duplex mode. Both sets of guidelines are applicable to the 8412F-**.
The 8412S-**, however, can only function in half-duplex mode.
Full-Duplex Speakerphone Guidelines
The Impact SCS 8412F-** speakerphone uses the latest full-duplex speakerphone
technology. (Full-duplex technology enables both parties on a speakerphone call
to speak simultaneously—half-duplex speakerphones carry only one person’s
voice at a time.) The 8412F-** will operate in either full-duplex or half-duplex
mode depending on the current line conditions. For example, satellite calls or
calls with a delay involved may prevent the telephone from operating in
full-duplex mode.
To operate in full-duplex mode, the telephone must perform a “speech training”
test at the beginning of each call. To achieve optimum performance from the
full-duplex speakerphone, Comdial recommends that each user in turn speak
about 10 consecutive words to allow the telephone to “train” itself. Note that
during the “speech training” test, the speakerphone is operating in half-duplex
mode.
Depending on the telephone line conditions and the type of speakerphone at the
other end, it may not be possible for the 8412F-** to operate in full-duplex mode.
If the speakerphone at the other end is a half-duplex speakerphone and both
parties are in speakerphone mode, the half-duplex speakerphone is the
controlling factor, preventing the 8412F-** from operating in full-duplex mode.
Large Screen Display Speakerphone Station User’s Guide
107
Speakerphone Characteristics
GCA70-349
NOTE:
Pressing any button (mute, hold, etc.) on the speakerphone while in
full-duplex mode causes the system to perform the “speech training” test
again. For example, if you press MUTE while in full-duplex mode, when
you release the call from mute, the system will perform the entire “speech
training” test.
To maximize the usefulness of your full-duplex speakerphone, take note of these
following observations about full-duplex speakerphone operation.
•
•
•
•
•
108
The full duplex operating mode requires a small amount of time to adapt
to changes in echo; therefore, you should avoid making any movements in
the vicinity—about a one-foot radius—of the speakerphone.
There are certain echo limits beyond which the speakerphone cannot
effect canceling. These limits are as follows: room echoes beyond 39 milliseconds (standard configuration) and line echoes beyond 24 milliseconds (standard configuration).
The speakerphone may automatically reduce the volume in each direction
when both you and the distant party talk at the same time (double-talk).
This volume reduction is necessary to control the echoes at high volume
levels. It is possible for surrounding conversations and other sounds to
trigger double-talk even when you are not speaking. This condition may
lower the loudspeaker volume at your speakerphone.
You must adjust the loudness of your voice to match that of the distant
party’s voice. This action is necessary to cause full-duplex operation to
take place. Sustained double-talk or excessive echo may cause the
speakerphone to drop back into half-duplex operation. This happens
because the speakerphone’s echo cancel circuits cannot adapt during the
double-talk situation.
If both you and the distant party are using full-duplex speakerphones, the
sensitivity to both echo path changes and volume reduction during double-talk is doubled from the sensitivity when just one full-duplex
speakerphone is involved.

GCA70-349
Speakerphone Characteristics
Half-Duplex Speakerphone Guidelines
NOTE:
The speakerphone user guidelines in this section do not apply to the
Impact SCS 8412F-** when it is operating in full-duplex mode. However,
when the 8412F-** is in half-duplex mode or in “speech training” mode, the
following guidelines are applicable.
These guidelines are also applicable to the 8412S-** whenever it is in
speakerphone mode.

Background noise may prevent the sound-activated switches from operating properly. Avoid placing the speakerphone where it will detect sounds
from typewriters, keyboards, printers, paging systems, and other equipment.
Speak slightly louder than normal and in a clear voice. For the microphone to best detect your voice, speak within three feet of it and face the
telephone.
Raising the volume of the loudspeaker makes it easier for the
sound-activated switches in your telephone to select the distant party’s
voice. Lowering the volume of the loudspeaker makes it easier for the
switches to select your voice.
Since the system takes several seconds to provide the best switching, constant sound patterns—such as elongating your words and playing externally-supplied music—may prevent the sound-activated switches from
operating properly.
Place the telephone on a hard surface and away from table edges. Do not
place the telephone in corners or enclosures. Do not let obstructions come
between you and the microphone. Rooms with hard, flat surfaces that
reflect sound may affect the sound-activated switches.
If you are using a handset and the other party is using a speakerphone,
avoid breathing heavily into your microphone. Avoid other sounds that
may affect the distant telephone’s sound-activated switches.
In some situations, such as when either you or the distant party is in a noisy
environment, you may have to lift your handset to ensure a clear
conversation.When using your speakerphone, the microphone and loudspeaker
are farther away from you than when you use a handset. Both the signal from the
loudspeaker and the signal to the microphone must be strengthened.

Comdial ® strives to design the features in our
communications systems to be fully interactive with one
another. However, this is not always possible, as the
combinations of accessories and features are too varied and
extensive to insure total feature compatibility. Accordingly,
some features identified in this publication will not operate
if some other feature is activated.
Comdial ® disclaims all liability relating to feature
non-compatibility or associated in any way with problems
which may be encountered by incompatible features.
Notwithstanding anything contained in this publication to
the contrary, Comdial makes no representation herein as to
the compatibility of features.
