Technical Information
Technical Information
This cordless telephone uses radio frequencies to allow mobility. There are
certain difficulties in using radio frequencies with a cordless telephone. While
these are normal, the following could affect the operation of your system.
Noise
Electrical pulse noise is present in most homes at one time or another. This noise
is most intense during electrical storms. Certain kinds of electrical equipment
such as light dimmers, fluorescent bulbs, motors, and fans also generate noise
pulses. Because radio frequencies are susceptible to these noise pulses, you
may occasionally hear them in your Handset. Generally they are a minor
annoyance and should not be interpreted as a defect in your system.
Range
Because radio frequency is used, the location of the Base Unit can affect the
operating range. Try several locations in your home or office and pick the one that
gives you the clearest signal to the Handset.
Interference
Electronic circuits activate a relay to connect the cordless telephone to your
telephone line. These electronic circuits operate in the radio frequency spectrum.
While several protection circuits are used to prevent unwanted signals, there may
be periods when these unwanted signals enter the Base Unit. You may hear clicks
or hear the relay activate while you are not using the Handset. If the interference
occurs frequently, it can be minimized or eliminated by relocating the Base Unit.
You can check for interference before selecting the final Base Unit location by
plugging in the telephone.
NOTICE
This cordless telephone uses radio communication between the Handset and the
Base Unit and may not ensure privacy of communication. Other devices, including
other cordless telephones, may interfere with the operation of this cordless
telephone or cause noise during operation. Units not containing coded access
may be accessed by other radio communication systems. Cordless telephones
must not cause interference to any licensed radio service.
