Getting started
Location
You need to place your BT Equinox 1200 within 2 metres
of a mains power and telephone socket so that the
cables will reach.
Make sure it is at least 1 metre away from other electrical
appliances to avoid interference.
Your BT Equinox 1200 works by sending radio signals
between the handset and base. The strength of the
signal depends on where you site the base. Putting it as
high as possible ensures the best signal.
Setting up
1. Plug the mains power cable into the base.
7
WARNING
Do not place your BT Equinox
1200 in the bathroom or other
humid areas.
Handset range
The BT Equinox 1200 has a range
of 300 metres outdoors when there
is a clear line of sight between the
base and handset. When there is
no clear line of sight between the
base and handset, e.g. base
indoors and handset either indoors
or outdoors, the range could be
reduced to 50 metres. Thick stone
walls severely affect the range.
Signal strength
The
symbol on your handset
screen indicates when you are in
range. When you are out of range,
it flashes.
IMPORTANT
Do not connect the telephone line
until at least one of the handsets is
fully charged.
The base must be plugged into the
mains power at all times.

Getting started
The red Charging light stays on
while the handset is on the base,
even when the batteries are fully
charged.
2. Insert 2 x AAA NiMH batteries supplied into the handset.
Slide the battery compartment covers into place.
Talk/Standby time
Under ideal conditions, fully charged
handset batteries should give up
to 8 hours talktime or 80 hours
standby on a single charge.
Battery low warning
The handset battery symbol is
empty and flashing and you will hear
a warning beep. Start recharging
your handset right away.
When charging the battery, level
bars are animated.
3. Charge the handset for at least 16 hours by placing it on
the base. The red Charging light comes on. The handset
is pre-registered to the base as Handset 1. The screen
shows the standby display.
08:16
Replacing batteries
Use only rechargeable 750mAh or
higher AAA NiMH batteries.
Battery performance
When batteries are fully charged
the display shows red, orange and
yellow level bars.
To keep your batteries in the best
conditions, leave the handset off
the base for a few hours at a time
(after the initial 16 hour charge).
Please note however, that new
NiMH batteries do not reach full
capacity until they have been in
normal use for several days.

Getting started
Range indicator
The
symbol on your handset display indicates when
you are in range of the base. If the symbol flashes and
you hear a warning beep, you are out of range and will
need to move closer to the base. The display shows Base
and the number of the base last used.
Set date and time.
Running the batteries right down
at least once a week will help them
last as long as possible.
The charge capacity of rechargeable
batteries will reduce with time as
they wear out, so reducing the
talk/standby time of the handset.
Eventually they will need to be
replaced. New batteries can be
obtained from the BT Equinox
Helpline 0870 605 8047.
